Self Accountability

by Joseph Ratliff

It’s no secret that a big hot-button for me is self accountability.

I’m not perfect when it comes to this…but I’m quite versed on the subject as a sort-of “success guru” to many business owners, and have made huge improvements in this area for myself personally.

But, I’m tired of seeing news, media, and other forms of reporting that focuses on blaming other entities and people etc… for our own problems.

When are we going to take accountability for ourselves on a more global scale?

In the U.S. especially, you can see examples of the lack of accountability from our litigious society and how it behaves.

(spilling hot coffee on the lap from a drive through window anybody?)

I mean, come on people…let’s at least do one small action to get started on the path to better behavior here…

When something goes “wrong”, instead of looking at what caused it…let’s first look at how we can do something different within ourselves.  Most of the time you’ll find the problem lies within ourselves…and solving that problem can solve a bunch of future problems that would have been created if we looked for the cause of the problem elsewhere first.

This sounds easy, but really, it isn’t…or more people would do it (and more people should do it).

So take the path less-traveled, and look at yourself and how you can improve yourself first…and your life will begin to improve as a result.
