Good or bad--it's all yours
Anita Bruzzese, Gannett, writes on CareerBuilder that real accountability for one’s actions has two sides. On the bad side, you’re to blame for bad results. On the good side, you own the good results!
The trick is you have to take them both—the positive and the negative.
You have power—your intellect and power caused the results, good or bad. Don’t give away your power.
Try to define your expectations—of yourself and others.
Deal with the present. You can’t change the past.
Do you always tell the truth? Covering up a mistake multiplies it.
Police yourself—check constantly to see if you are in the center of events and results.
Stand tall. Who’s better than you?
If you find someone who is, get rid of that person…aw, just kidding. I can only take so much rah-rah stuff, no matter how true and useful.
How about you?
