Taking Responsibility

I was reminded this morning how important it is to take responsibility for our actions. There are many people who have an autonomic response of finding outside reasons for everything that happens in their life. They find excuses for the big things and the little things. After a while this becomes ingrained.

As a leader it is critical that we always accept full responsibility for our lives. We need to do this inwardly and it is imperative that this is what we model for others. Accepting responsibility is not just an action or a habit, it is a lifestyle. It is the personification of an entire belief system. It is “the secret”.

We are responsible for our lives. We are responsible for everything we experience. Accepting and understanding this is the key to a boundless freedom, joy and opportunity.

This topic now has me thinking of how the little actions and habits in our lives are an outward demonstration of our belief systems. But that’s a discussion for another day.
