Prior to being introduced to CLG, I was essentially sleepwalking. I often found myself falling into familiar patterns of feeling victimized by things happening "to" and "around" me. Responsibility (Commitment #1) truly grabbed hold of me, and I am now consciously aware of what I call "participating in my own rescue". The benefits of practicing the art of taking full responsibility have, for me, traversed life both at work and at home. I am a better boss, teammate, husband and Dad when I stay above the line. Of course I take a dip to the underworld of victimhood every now and then, but through practice, I've gained the skill to rise above.
