Responsibility: you assume command, you accept the consequences of your actions. Listen to Reynolds tell the story of Rick Sharp, the successful daytime TV actor from the 80’s. Rick blamed everyone for his problems and became an expert at avoiding responsibility.
By being prepared, you increase your chances of success, of seizing opportunities when they come your way. It’s in your own self-interest to stay on top of things. Just because you delegate something, you need to confirm its been completed, especially if it is going to affect your future.
A winner is big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, strong enough to correct them. – John Maxwell
Start taking full responsibility for the things that happen to you. Accept responsibility for your own destiny.
