Personal Accountability Is Always A Good Thing!

It was good reading a book for a change that really stresses personal accountability, the matter what happens to us in life. The downturn in the economy, and a lot of us being :the victim", and when we do that to an overabundance, we can't see our way clearly to come up with reasonable practical solutions.

The author, Linda Galindo, suggest to us some every day, easy-to-follow suggestions, that most likely will make a terrific difference in your life.

Here is just a sampling:

- Responsibility
- Self Empowerment
- What's Done Is Done
- Just Say No
- The Magic Of "And"

By adapting some of these easy-to-follow, and easily implemented tidbits into our everyday lives, we can free ourselves to be better able to handle any situation that comes our way, also we can become better leaders, better teammates and increase our quality of life.

In this day and age where there is so much negativity going around, and it doesn't seem to be much light at the end of the tunnel, it's great to read and uplifting book that will shift some of the spotlight on the help us get through what we're going through.

I highly recommend this book whether you're going through something at this point of your life or not.
