The difference between being responsible and being irresponsible whittles down to two things: accountability and adaptability. A responsible person owns up to their role in any situation, and learns from their mistakes. An irresponsible person shifts the blame to someone or something else, and makes the same mistakes over and over again. Here are some steps you can take to become a more responsible person.

  1. Understand That Responsibility Is Earned
  2. Stop making Excuses
  3. View Yourself As A Creator, Not A Victim Of Circumstance
  4. Over Come Your Fear Of Failure
  5. Acknowledge Your Role
  6. Don’t Bit Of More Than You Can Chew


Always follow through. You’ll struggle with losses of confidence and motivation along the way, and that’s normal. The important thing is that you get back on course and finish what you start.
