#ThursdayThought – Sincere Ownership
Very rarely, if ever, do we hear people taking full accountability and responsibility for their actions.
Politicians, business people and celebrities usually seem to have a public relations team ready to spin the narrative for any and all errors, no matter how minuscule or egregious
That, unfortunately, is in the micro. In the macro, we see people all around us – teachers, pastors, spouses, children, parents, friends, local figures – do the same thing. Including ourselves.
It’s refreshing when someone comes forward and states how wrong they were and what they are doing to amend their ways.
It’s always encouraging to see a fellow human being – fallible as we all are – state so and work towards being better.
No blameshifting, no gaslighting, no pride, no claiming ignorance or influence by their village or environment.
Taking ownership, sincere ownership, for your mistakes is liberating. It frees one from the constant covering up and the continual spin to divert attention elsewhere.
How can you take ownership, sincere ownership today? It may truly transform your life, your leadership and those around you.
