Our actions toward or involving others reflects the integrity of the person we want to be. Rooted in the foundation of uniqueness, would it not stand to reason that we are individually accountable for what we say and what we do?
We must hold ourselves accountable because no one else can represent us. We alone are responsible for our actions but are not free from the consequences of those actions. The moment we point a finger at someone else, we avoid accountability.
Allowing accountability to serve as our internal barometer will have a profound effect on our decisions, actions, and words. Not acknowledging and accepting accountability can lead to a life filled with disappointments, frustrations, and chaos. Perpetuating a life of chaos robs us of a fulfilling, purposeful life.
Without personal accountability, for ourselves and to others, we cannot ever grow or improve.
