Be Answerable For Your Actions
*There is an expiry date on blaming your parents for steering you in the wrong direction; the moment you are old enough to take the wheel, responsibility lies with you.
– J.K. Rowling*
There comes a point in life where you have to drive your life and you will drive it. A lot of times people are so reluctant with whatever that goes on in their lives and think it will just work out. Your life’s results for today and tomorrow are created by your level of commitment and willingness to shape it. When things go wrong, we rush to blame it on other things as the economy, friends influence, family, and a whole lot of other things. We forget that we have the power to create something great which will depict who we are.
A lot of times we talk about being responsible but in whole truth we are far from being accountable. The main difference between responsibility and accountability is that responsibility can be shared while accountability cannot be shared if you are not. Being accountable not only means being responsible for something but also ultimately being answerable for your actions. Life is what you make it, the level of your accountability determines the value of your success on life.
It’s high time we stop the blame game, start to be accountable in the things we think they are of less importance. Accountability is the belief that you are fully responsible for your own actions and consequences. It’s a choice, a mindset and an expression of integrity.
What is your choice today?
If you are not willing to be answerable then forget about becoming the success story you seek.
