My direction in life is up to me.

I set goals that are specific and realistic for me. I focus on the things I can control. I keep myself motivated by remembering my purpose. I persevere through obstacles and break big projects down into manageable parts.

I stay organized. I create systems and routines that make my work easier and less stressful. I keep my home and office tidy. I clear away clutter and minimize paperwork.

I evaluate my progress. I look at myself with honesty and compassion. I clarify my priorities and analyze my conclusions. I keep track of milestones that tell me if I am staying on schedule.

I fulfill my promises. I live up to my word. I keep my commitments to myself and others. I earn trust and strengthen my relationships.

I manage my time wisely. I plan my days. I devote most of my time and energy to activities that are meaningful to me. I cut down on distractions. I shut off the TV and check my messages at designated times.

I listen to feedback with an open mind. I ask questions and stay calm. I search for valid points even if there are some things I disagree with. I use what I learn to enhance my performance.

I accept the consequences of my actions.

Today, I take control of my life. Being accountable helps me to build my confidence and add to my achievements.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. Who would I pick if I was looking for an accountability partner?
  2. What am I teaching my children about taking responsibility for themselves?
  3. What is the difference between shame and accountability?
