The book is about how you deal with the most important person in your life — yourself. It talks about mastering yourself (seeing yourself more clearly) and rebelling against messages that tell you you’re not enough. Ramsay writes, “There are two parts to changing one’s beliefs. The first stage involves overcoming the fixed mindset [rebelling] and replacing it with a growth mindset, whilst the second stage involves replacing your limiting beliefs with new, liberating beliefs.” Mostly this is done by searching for the truth about what your core values are. Ramsay says that core values are the fundamental principles you live by and measure your standard of living against. Finding them and, perhaps more importantly, living by them will help you not only find happiness but, even better, fulfillment.
The author spends many pages going into detail about these concepts, sharply defining them, and painting word pictures along the way with personal stories and allegories such as the ”crow and the scorpion,” as well has fascinating tales about the “too-energetic girl,” the “elephant,” and the “birdcage.”
At this point, I should tell you that my project was updating my own book, a book about George Washington’s character. In view of what Ramsay has to say, did Washington assume responsibility for his actions? Did he have the courage to rebel? Yes, I think most people would agree. But since Ramsay’s book talks a lot about emotion, learning about it and controlling it, I thought I’d share with you this story of what you may not know: Despite the impression of being a “marble man,” Washington was a very emotional person, one who struggled continually to keep his temper under control.
Gilbert Stuart, the artist who painted George Washington’s image which is now on the ubiquitous dollar bill, once said of Washington, “All his features…were indicative of the strongest and most ungovernable passions, and had he been born in the forest…he would have been the fiercest man amongst the savage tribes.” President Washington had been praised for his “great moderation and calmness during the very trying situations in which he has so often been placed, yet those who have been acquainted with him the longest and most intimately say, that he is by nature a man of fierce and irritable disposition; but that, like Socrates, his judgment and great self-command have always made him appear a man of a different cast in the eyes of the world.” So what was Washington’s secret? I think it can be summed up in this challenge in his own words: “There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily.”
Seeking and living the truth about yourself is my quick summation of what “Responsibility Rebellion” is all about. Of course, you’d need a book to detail what all that means, and, luckily, you have it in Ramsay’s well-written work. And, what was especially gratifying about the book for me is newly appreciating the interaction: taking responsibility (character) can lead to rebellion (liberty), just as rebellion (liberty) can lead to responsibility (character).
Oh, and to satisfy any curiosity about the book’s low Kindle price? View it as an invitation/entree to many other Kain Ramsay empowerment products. And the character you build along the way, of course, leads to liberty…and fulfillment!

This book alone can change your life. It is going on my list of "books I highly recommend for others", and I've already suggested it to a few people.
Read it. More importantly, take action on the contents and implement the info. You will be glad you did.

The first step in personal growth is self awareness. You have shown that awareness already by being here.
Are you looking for motivation?
Kain goes beyond motivation and invites you to think about what you really stand for. Once you are certain of your core values, your path becomes clear.
