Taking Responsibility - A New Online Journey by Ideapod

Taking responsibility for your life is the only way to achieve real and long lasting success. The (often hard to face) reality is that you are responsible for everything in your life, no matter the external circumstances.  

But how can you take ultimate responsibility for your life? How can you make sure that you’re successful in all areas that matter?  

Ideapod's new course, Taking Responsibility, offers the tools and techniques you need to develop new habits of responsibility that you can apply on a daily basis.

Why taking responsibility is so powerful

We all have areas in life we wish were different:

  • An unrewarding job, for which you feel you’re paid too little
  • Being overweight, unhealthy, or unhappy with your appearance
  • Not getting ahead financially in life
  • Unsatisfying relationships with people, including family, friends and partners
  • Goals you've set that you never seem able to achieve

However, most people make the mistake of passively accepting their situation, rather than taking responsibility for it. The first instinct is often to blame bad luck or to blame other people. And passing the buck does absolutely nothing to improve your situation.  

However, once we stop blaming outside forces for your situation, there's only one place to look: in the mirror.  

Taking responsibility for your problems doesn't necessarily mean you’re at fault for them. Life can suck. S**t happens. And life’s not always fair. At the end of the day, however, only one person can improve your situation. 

You are responsible for everything in your life, no matter the external circumstances.

Assuming responsibility for everything can be incredibly liberating. Once you start accepting responsibility, you don't have to wait for anyone's permission or a change of luck to make changes. You just... Start. NOW.  

What does taking responsibility for your life actually mean?  

Taking responsibility means taking control of (a) how you perceive and interpret your challenges, and (b) how you choose to respond to them.  

By accepting responsibility for everything and taking action every day, doors start to open. You’ll see the results immediately because you have fundamentally changed your mindset and developed habits you can apply on a daily basis.  

However, taking ultimate responsibility for your life is not an easy task. Many of us have spent our lives not taking responsibility and passively accepting things that we did not think we could change. That's why we created this course.  

In this online journey, we'll guide you through a powerful process for self-transformation, while offering the tools and techniques you need to move forward and be the best version of you.

Overview of the Journey

This is a self-paced, online course which provides you all the tools you need to create positive change in your life - by taking personal responsibility for everything in it. We provide recommended timeframes for each step so it runs over a 30 day period. But you can move through it as fast or slow as you wish.

The 5 modules break down personal responsibility into key building blocks.  

Module 1: The Culture of Entitlement and Blame  

We unpack the human tendency to proportion blame to everything and anyone around us and to feel entitled to certain things without having to work for them. Unfortunately, the world doesn’t owe us anything. Instead, it’s accepting responsibility for all areas that propels us forward towards our goals and, ultimately, our happiness.

Module 2: Finding Your Power  

No matter the challenges you face in life (and there are probably going to be some big ones along the way), we all have the freedom and the power to choose our attitude to life. We introduce the groundbreaking book, ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’, where Viktor Frankl used his experiences in a Nazi concentration camp to understand how we react when in adverse situations and how to derive meaning from our greatest challenges.

Module 3: Putting Things into Perspective  

What does your perspective have to do with taking greater responsibility for your life? Well, to be frank, everything. We have the ability to put perspective on every situation and this can directly influence how we respond to them. Each situation merits its own perspective. Learn how to make a conscious choice to look at challenging situations in a more positive way.  

Module 4: Taking Action

Taking responsibility for your life means taking action. We show you how to take deliberate action every day, even when things become uncomfortable or difficult. Learn how to build momentum by focusing on small steps, and how not to be discouraged by making mistakes - because you'll be taking responsibility for them!  

Module 5: Creating Your Reality and Purpose

You have two options: wait and hope things go your way or you can actively seek to take responsibility for your life each and every day. We help you identify your purpose in life, and outline ways you can then work more successfully towards fulfilling it on a daily basis. Our focus is on creating achievable goals and developing new habits of personal responsibility by taking action.  

Each module contains:  

  • An overview of the theory behind each module, including the latest research on personal responsibility and achieving success.
  • Detailed action steps. These encourage you to take action immediately to implement positive change in your life.  
  • Videos by Justin Brown, founder of Ideapod. Justin summarizes the key points in each module, outlines the action steps in more detail, and provides practical examples of how taking responsibility helped him transform his own life.
  • Recommended readings, including free web resources, which help you understand each topic in more depth.

You will also gain exclusive access to a private discussion group, moderated by Justin Brown. This is a community of hundreds of supportive people who want to take action and live their best lives. Great for discussing what's on your mind with instructors and fellow students.  

You'll learn:

Why so many of us try to blame others for our problems and how you can break free from the culture of entitlement and blame so prevalent in society.

How to find your internal power. Develop the capacity to change your behavior and respond to any situation with a new sense of purpose and power. 

Why you need to accept responsibility for all areas of your life, including your perspective on the various challenges that you face.

Action steps, tools and texhniques at the end of every chapter so that you can improve your life. Right NOW.

Justin Brown is the founder and editor-in-chief of Ideapod.  

Justin has been passionate about making ideas more accessible since his days as a doctoral research candidate in international political economy. He has overseen the evolution of Ideapod from a social network into a globally influential media network.  

For Justin, taking responsibility for how he reacts to his external circumstances has been the single most important factor that has drastically changed his life. Not only has it contributed to the significant growth of Ideapod over the last few years, it's also helped him to stop blaming others for what he's frustrated with in life and start taking action.

It's a continual process and Justin very much looking forward to sharing more with you. You'll see him in the videos and discussion group as soon as you enroll in the program.
