Question and answer
How do you use personal accountability to achieve professional success?
Want to develop your capacity for personal accountability? Here are a few ideas to get you started: Focus on what you can do, not what you can't do. Mary Kay Ash, founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics, once said, "If you think you can, you're right. [ And if you think you can't, you're right." Focus your time and energy on the things you can control and influence. Shift your mindset by asking better questions. In his inaugural address in 1961, President John F. Kennedy said, "Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country." The same applies to business. Don't ask
victimizing questions that focus on finding fault or placing blame on others. Instead ask accountability questions that focus on action, such as, "What can I do to resolve this problem?" Choose to be accountable for your own actions. When Oprah Winfrey won the People's Choice Award in 2004 she said, "I created this happiness by choice." Given what I know about Oprah - her ability to overcome obstacles, her ability to learn from her mistakes, and her strong sense of personal accountability - there is no doubt in my mind that she did indeed create her own happiness through the choices she made. And so can you. Developing a capacity for personal accountability requires discipline and professional maturity. Those who take the time to do so are likely to achieve greater professional success. So, what are you waiting for? ]
