How to Be Accountable : Take Responsibility to Change Your Behavior, Boundaries, and Relationships.
Accountability is an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility
for and to repair the harm caused by one's actions. It features
prominently in our relationships, personal lives, and professional
lives. Everything from stealing money from work to lying to a friend to
making a mistake at school that caused someone else to get in trouble to
pressuring your spouse into having sex when they aren't interested to
murdering a stranger on the street--each require accountability, albeit
dramatically different kinds.
At its heart, accountability is
understanding that your actions do not always have the impact that you
intend; it is ownership of your actions, working to repair problematic
issues, and learning how to prevent patterns from forming or continuing
in the future. Sometimes this is as simple as getting to know yourself
and apologizing. Sometimes it's a years-long process to recognize the
motivations and behaviors that you see inside yourself and feel like you
have no control over. This workbook will walk you through your own head
to understand your own patterns and behaviors, untangle them, and live
the kind of life you want.
Learning to take ownership for your actions is the difference between success and failure.
