Creating boundaries

Creating boundaries

Avoid over-committing and evaluate your workload before adding more to your plate.

Learning to say 'no' or 'not right now' will help you create the necessary boundaries so you'll be able to uphold your responsibilities and achieve all your goals.

Being organized

Being organized

It will help you keep yourself on track and on top of your goals and responsibilities.

You have to track your personal obligations just as you would your professional ones so you never miss something and to ensure you’re following through on your promises.

Controlling impulses

Controlling impulses

We make poor decisions in the moment all the time to satisfy our impulses, even though these decisions may have obvious destructive consequences.

If given the time to really think about the decision, we may choose the more responsible option.

Personal responsibility

Personal responsibility

It means not seeking others to blame for what happens in your life and being able to respond to challenges personally.

Being aware that your decisions have a direct impact on your life’s events is what personal responsibility is all about.

Your authentic self

To be responsible for yourself means that you will do what’s expected of you, even when no one is around to know. 

This does not just mean doing the things that someone else subjectively expects you to do, it means doing the things that you should expect of yourself.

Strong communication skills

To take responsibility for yourself, you have to know the things you are responsible for.

It is critical to communicate so you won’t make a mistake due to assumptions. Ask questions and seek feedback. And if you do make mistakes, communicate with people about them.

Building courage

Build the courage to accept your failures. This is how you demonstrate personal responsibility.

Identify the things you are afraid of. Fear is a product of the unknown, and if you are able to accept the unknown, fear will have less of an impact on you.

Humility

Being humble means recognizing that you don't know everything, committing to improving yourself and asking for help.

Be aware of your strengths and weaknesses and have the self-control to say no to tasks that are beyond your scope of knowledge, despite your eagerness to prove yourself.

Persistence

Persistence

Look for opportunities for growth in every failure. And actively seek these opportunities.

If you become complacent in your unfulfilling job or dull relationship, you aren’t giving yourself the chance to make mistakes that you can then learn from.
