most effective self-improvement tools ever discovered. This one
technique can do more for your mental strength, job performance and

This simple formula eliminates self-criticism, fear and stress. It is applicable to any situation and works
every time. You can use it repeatedly without limitation.
L. Ron Hubbard discovered the KRC
Triangle in 1960.
"THE K-R-C TRIANGLE"
"The points are K for
KNOWLEDGE, R for RESPONSIBILITY and C for CONTROL."
"It is difficult to be
responsible for something or control something unless you have KNOWLEDGE
"It is folly to try to control
something or even know something without RESPONSIBILITY."
"It is hard to fully know
something or be responsible for something over which you have no
CONTROL, otherwise the result can be an overwhelm."
"Little by little one can make
anything go right by
"INCREASING KNOWLEDGE . . .
"INCREASING RESPONSIBILITY . .
"INCREASING CONTROL . . .
"If one sorts out any
situation one finds oneself in on this basis, he will generally
"By inching up each corner of
the KRC triangle bit by bit, ignoring the losses and making the wins
firm, a being at length discovers his power and command of life." —
L. Ron Hubbard
KRC Triangle Application
Select a problem and write it down or
type it into your computer. Then write or type the answers for each of
these five steps.
1. Raise the Knowledge corner.
How can you increase your knowledge about
the problem? What do you need to learn about it? What should you study
to better understand the problem?
2. Raise the Responsibility corner.
How can you take more ownership for the
problem? What parts of the problem are you responsible for? Can you
accept responsibility for the parts you did not cause?
3. Raise the Control corner.
What part of the problem can you control?
How could you take a little more control for the other parts?
4. Ignore the losses.
If you focus on losses or failures, they
get bigger and more overwhelming. You then pull in even more losses. So
find ways to ignore these losses.
If ignoring losses is difficult, try
writing them down on a sheet of paper and then destroy the paper. Shift
your attention. Stop talking or thinking about them. Avoid people who
bring them up. Move on.
If you catch yourself dwelling on losses,
knock it off. Put your attention elsewhere. Stop talking about losses.
And learn to ignore the failures of others as well.
5. Make the wins firm.
What can you do to make your successes
firm? How can you solidify them?
Maybe you can write them down or put them
on a wall. Keep a record of your wins. Talk about them to everyone you
can. Celebrate them.
Also, make a habit of finding and
focusing on the wins of others. The more attention you put on success,
the more success you get.
Some of your answers to these questions
are easy, enjoyable steps. Do those right now! You will see a sudden
improvement in the problem.
Then do the tougher steps you wrote. Once
you start on them you will find they are not so tough after all.
If following these five steps does not
completely solve the problem, repeat the steps until the problem is gone
As well as solving problems for you,
these steps will start to bring out the best in you. You will discover a
new sense of command over life that you have always had, but never used.
Use the KRC Triangle to release the real
powerhouse you know that you are.
