Author Alison Stein Identifies Widespread Crisis in Personal Responsibility, Outlines Path to Solution in Reality
Date:8/11/2009

ATLANTA, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Author Alison Stein says that many claim to value personal responsibility, yet the lack of it is rampant. Some people are responsible, though many are actually less responsible than they take credit for being.

"Consider the causes of the nation's current financial circumstances. While the decisions made by those running large corporations influenced the recent downturn of our economic situation, the average person could have been less affected by those events and therefore not added to the nation's financial distress," says Stein.

In the current health reform discussions, much has been said about the need for people to take more responsibility for the condition of their health. The levels of obesity and weight-related illnesses reflect a broad lack of self-discipline, a key factor of personal responsibility.

Health and finances are just two of the areas that have recently been tied to personal responsibility, though many other areas of life are affected by the lack of it and are intertwined with each other. Personal responsibility is a way of life. However, it is apparently not a natural instinct, and not everyone has a good role model. Personal experience is not always a practical teacher either.

Even more crippling to our nation than those who are somewhat responsible but still need improvement, are those who are not self-sufficient and could be. Some people enter adulthood with little guidance. Many of them want to make it on their own and yearn for direction. Higher education is certainly valuable, but with or without it, people need to know how to make good decisions.

Effective reform has to start at the individual level, and when considering all of the different areas in which training would be necessary to teach everyone in society to become a self-sufficient, self-disciplined, good decision maker in every area of life, the task becomes impractical and nearly impossible.

Alison Stein presents a solution, Reality: A Guide to Personal Responsibility. According to Stein, "This thorough guide explains the decision-making process in great detail. It then applies that process to every situation a person might encounter in life. Reality is based on the idea that people have more control over the types of situations they experience than what they realize. Many people will be surprised to learn how few occurrences just 'happen' to them and will be amazed at the power they have to influence most situations in life to turn out favorably for them."

Stein believes that as people see the concept work for others, they will be eager to adopt it. Everyone will see how truly deserved respect and pride is possible regardless of one's socioeconomic status. These traits will spread, becoming sought-after, realistically attainable, and contagious. So begins the effective process that will create the real change our country needs.

Does this require dipping into the overstretched budget to pay a team of experts to take years to put together a program to accomplish this? No, that is not necessary. Sometimes large-scale transformation has to start at the smallest level, and improvement is more likely to happen when clear instructions are provided.
