Self-Reliance and the Accountable Life
In this invaluable and illuminating guide, Nathaniel Branden, the father of the self-esteem movement, turns his focus to personal responsibility, a crucial component of genuine psychological growth. In this book, Dr. Branden provides a guide to self-realization through self-reliance and offers a vision of a society transformed by a new ethical individualism.
Branden delineates four goals:
- To illuminate the meaning and implications of self-responsibility as a way of living and of being in the world
- To show that this practice is not an onerous burden but a source of joy and personal power
- To establish that we create ourselves - shape our identity - through what we are willing to take responsibility for
- To demonstrate that self-responsibility, self-reliance, and individualism are essential to the well-being of our society.
