Own It: Individual Responsibility For The Outcome

Own It: Individual Responsibility For The Outcome

Everything in your life...

Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make a different choice.    – Unknown

Regularly I challenge my coaching clients with this question, “What would happen if you made up your mind to own it? All of it?”

Everybody responds with a similar statement. “But everything isn’t my fault. I’m not to blame for EVERYTHING.” 

The words “fault” or “blame” were never mentioned by me, but it shows how we’re all wired to deflect. Making excuses is easy, which is why it’s so common. 

Extraordinary people – effective leaders – don’t operate that way. High performers have learned the high value in being responsible and accountable. For accepting the burden of responsibility to wrestle down the question, “Now what?” Whatever happens, no matter who is to blame, “Now what?”

Be well. Do good. Grow great!
