“The day you will be responsible, and you will not apologize again, that is the start day that will lead you to success.” O.J. Simpson
Having as a starting point this quote, I want to debate today a new theme, namely to be responsible.
To be responsible in life involves a function of liability- a liability which some of us refuse to assume. And I think you give me right.
According to specialized dictionaries, responsibility is a behavioral dimension that a person establishes it freely and consciously. Thus, a person is free to choose between being responsible or not being responsible for everyday life.
When we make a promise to someone, we demonstrate to that person that we are a responsible person, that he can trust us. Therefore, that person has expectations from us that we will carry on our promise. So, we prove that we are a responsible person toward ourselves first of all, and then in the front of that person.
What does it mean to be responsible?
Being responsible means, first of all, to have a sense of responsibility, to keep your promises. We need to realize that our success depends on how responsible we are.
How to be a responsible person?
First, we need to be aware of the effects of our actions. When you say you will do something, people trust you and make plans according to what you said you would do. If you tell your friend that you will help him with the project at college, he will believe and will focus on something else. If, for other reasons, you do no longer doing what you promised, he will have to suffer some consequences. Therefore, we have to be honest from the beginning.
When we know that we can no longer honor a promise, it is best to announce the person in question. We have to take responsibility for something we can not do anymore.
“From now on, when you make a commitment, do everything you can to respect it.If you are honest and loyal to your spirit call, you will not have the chance anymore to look for excuses.” Wayne Dyer
