Are you a responsible person? What does it mean to be 'responsible?
From the childhood, you are taught to be responsible for their actions. But what is the responsibility? What does it mean for everyone?
The responsibility is the understanding of the consequences, which can be caused by the actions of the person. A responsibility is something that you have a duty to do, and that you're expected to do.
First of all responsibility is setting goals and their reaching. It means to be responsible for all your words, actions and even thoughts. It is the responsibility for your improvement and professional development and of course, it is the responsibility for your health and body.
The possibility to promise something and to do it is one of the fact, that this person is reliable. If the person does not want to take any responsibility, it means, that this person cannot do a lot in the real life. These people will not be able to reach the success in this life or create the family, because the family is the huge responsibility. But people, that are not afraid of the responsibility and can take it are successful and can control the situation and even the life of other people. They increase their opportunities and they are doing their best to reach the success.
The interesting fact is, that even if the person is wise and have a lot of talents, but do not have the responsibility, he will not reach the success, because he will lose the support of other people, they will not trust him, because he is unreliable.
How to be Responsible?
When you agree to do something, do it. If you let people down, they’ll stop believing you. When you follow through on your commitments, people take you seriously.
Answer for your own actions. Don’t make excuses or blame others for what you do. When you take responsibility for your actions you are saying “I am the one who’s in charge of my life.”
Take care of your own matters. Don’t rely on others to remind you when you’re supposed to be somewhere or what you’re supposed to bring. You take the responsibility.
Be trustworthy. If somebody trusts you to borrow or take care of something, take care of it. If somebody tells you something in confidence, keep it to yourself. It’s important for people to know they can count on you.
Always use your head. Think things through and use good judgment. When you use your head you make better choices. That shows your parents they can trust you.
Don’t put things off. When you have a job to do, do it. Doing things on time helps you take control of your life and shows that you can manage your own affairs.
It is very difficult to be the responsible person, to make people realise you are a responsible person but you can be sure, that you will get the respect of other people if you are responsible.
It will help you to change your life or to start your business, it will even help you to earn a lot of money.
