The Secret Sauce of Responsibility

Now that you have made it to the end of this course, it is important that this module was left until last. 

We have now gone through this whole course talking about elevating yourself and finding the purpose that you already have within, which has led us here to accountability. 

It is important for you to understand that if you’re unable to be accountable for the small things in life it can become hard to show up for the big things, it is your mission to live to your full potential which as you know it’s already inside of you. By now you will have picked up the tools and practices along the way with this course, you should have a pretty clear idea of what you desire and who you’re becoming. 

Using accountability as the icing on the cake to elevate you to the top.


What is accountability?

Accountability is making the choice to go beyond what you’re responsible for, carrying with it an idea of ownership, involvement, and engagement. Making this choice moves us closer to the success that we desire. When you step up into greater personal accountability, you can stop blaming yourself and others for the misfortunes that you face. Finding convenient reasons to shift responsibility or blame is never effective and never brings better results.

You’re making the choice to go beyond what you’re responsible for, carrying with it an idea of ownership, involvement, and engagement.

What to do if you come up against procrastination?

In case procrastination may inhibit you from actually taking accountability and action towards elevating your life, we suggest taking adequate steps to overcome the procrastination and continue on your path.

Researchers suggest that developing a schedule, carefully planning tasks, and improving time-management skills are all effective ways to cope with procrastination. A tool that we suggest you use in your moment of procrastination is taking a step back to foster self-awareness and kindness towards yourself before asking yourself a few of these questions.
