How does the Virtue of Accountability Motivate and Inspire me to be a Healthy Person?
Accountability is willingness to stand in responsibility for your actions and choices. It is having integrity in when we say we will do something we actually follow through with the plan of action. When we make mistakes we do not seek to hide it or run away from it, we have the willingness to face it no matter how big or small of an issue is. We are open to what lessons it brings us and ready to make amends. Accountability, is when people rely on another person to keep them held responsible for their actions, and will be tough on the person when needed. We are guided by our highest standards.
“Always take 100% responsibility for any activity you’re involved in.”
