Author Janine Schimmelpenninck believes the best way to improve oneself is to take subjective responsibility of all actions. In her new book, “Slave to the King: Learning to Take Subjective Responsibility” (published by Balboa Press), Schimmelpenninck elaborates on subjective responsibility, making it accessible to all readers.

Subjective responsibility means being a self-leader, taking control of the present and having the ability to respond consciously. In her book, Schimmelpenninck explains what it means to be responsible and how readers can view themselves as the subject – rather than the object – for the present.

Schimmelpenninck highlights the importance of free will and strives to show that all readers are in control of their own responses. Her book offers useful exercises and advice for those looking to regain control over their responses and positively change how they live and lead their lives.

“The book provides the reader with practical insight and tools to regain self-confidence for inner leadership,” Schimmelpenninck says. “It deals with the very basic and inescapable fact of life which is ‘response.’”

“Slave to the King” seeks to clear up misconceptions about responsibility and ensures that the power to change a life is obtainable. Through her book, Schimmelpenninck hopes to propel readers forward and motivate them to see their lives differently.
