I used to view people taking accountability for things as a sign of maturity, which it probably is, but more recently I discovered something new. I believe that there is a correlation between people being accountable and successful.

This is simply because of what the different approaches entail. Every action has a reaction, and the action of not being accountable leads to the reaction of searching for excuses. The action of being accountable leads to the reaction of trying to find solutions for problems.

I know that there are a lot of things that are out of our control but if take the time to be accountable for the things that are then I believe we would see that there are sometimes other ways to go about the things that aren’t in our control.

Be Accountable! It could be your ladder to success.
