How seldom we hear of people consciously striving for accountability.
“What good is that to me?” some would ask.
Accountability is important to everyone. Do you get angry when people don’t take you seriously? It could be that you haven’t demonstrated accountability in your life and therefore they expect nothing from you.
To be accountable is to take life seriously enough to honor your word and fulfill your obligations. Do you think anyone will take you seriously if they knew you never pay your child support payments? How about if they repossess your car for non-payment while you go out partying every night?
Accountability is doing the right thing every time you are called upon. It is being dependable, trustworthy, responsible, and it also means doing what it takes to improve yourself and build a meaningful life.
You want to be a clown and a playboy? OK, clown around and play—after you have taken care of business. After work, home and your personal well-being is accounted for, then go play. No problem.
Responsibilities are not evil, they are character building and give you a solid life. Squander your play time if you must, but respect your one and only life!
In my life, there is no one at all who isn’t accountable. If there is in yours, you might just realize that you are being used, not appreciated by them. Being used is not the same as being liked or loved. It means you are an easy target, someone without self-respect. It doesn’t prove you have a good heart. Devote your good heart to those who will care for your well-being also.
Remember: In the Game of Life, who LOVES the most — WINS!
Love, Light and Blessings to all of you!
