Why we should take 100% responsibility?

Responsibility is very significant in life. We can measure ourselves by the degree we take responsibility in any circumstances. In this article, I am going to explore some hidden facts about responsibility. Why we have to take 100% responsibility in any work or circumstances? What are the benefits of it? How does it determine the level of success? 

Taking responsibility

In our daily life, we are bounded with different plans and actions. Sometimes we get success but sometimes we fail. Most of us, have a habit if success we take credit. If we fail, we do not take responsibility. What could be the serious effect of this? When we do not take responsibility, we start to blame others. We start to see errors on others. We intend to criticize others. On one hand, it hides our own errors and on the other hand, it loses or breaks up the relationship. Hiding own error makes finding others' error. We miss the chance to correct ourselves. It deviates us from success. We spent years but we remain the same. We strive for change but nothing will gain. Finally, we turn to criticize others in an excessive way. Criticism not only poisons others but also ourselves. It brings undesirable results although we expect desirable results. 

"Criticism is futile because it puts a person on the defensive and usually makes him strive to justify himself. criticism is dangerous because it wounds persons precious pride, hurts his sense of importance, and arouses resentment."
                    - Dale Carnegie

The question may arise, how can we be responsible for others wrongdoings? In any work or circumstance, if we analysis deeply, we find we are responsible at any rate. Even if not wholly, we are partially responsible. Even if not directly, we are playing role indirectly. We will discover how we are invisible to visible outcomes. 
Responsibility makes proactive

Benefits of taking responsibility

We generally assume taking responsibility is unnecessary and do not cause merits. But the opposite is right. Taking responsibility emits innumerable benefits to us. We can gain inner power and strength. I want you to try the practice of taking responsibility. I have very good experience to share you. When I take 100% responsibility, I feel the power in my inner world. It creates new momentum, a very precious direction. It motivates me to take the initiative. It does not force me to blame and criticize others. It navigates to guide myself and correct own errors. It makes me proactive rather than reactive in an amazing way. So try it taking 100% responsibility. You will feel a new world. It does not harm you; rather it gives you benefits. It vibrates you positively.

When failed, most people trapped in negativity which makes us feel powerless and fears failure.  It restricts us to try other possible actions. But taking responsibility makes you free from negativity and discouragement. It helps to plan in a new way. It encourages you how to convert failure into success. It helps to see around with sight of hope whatever unfavourable circumstance is there. There may be a failure but not effects.  Failure seems obvious being an essential part of success. It not only motivates you but also other concerned people. It helps us to keep harmonious relations since we stop to blame and criticize others. 

Successful persons take 100% responsibility 

If we analyze the differences between successful and unsuccessful person, we will find, among many habits, successful persons have a habit of taking responsibility. 

"You must take personal responsibility. You cannot  change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind,  but you can change yourself." 
                         -Jim Rohn

Taking responsibility leads us to success. It makes failure temporary. Successful persons do not perceive failure as defeat. Instead, they perceive failure as an opportunity to correct their errors and mistakes. They take an opportunity to improve or make their actions better. We can take Thomas Alva Edison as the best example. He failed 999 times in the invention of the electric bulb. When he failed, he did not blame others but took himself responsibility which helps him to discover a new way to invent the bulb. For average people, it might be a sign of hopelessness, but he perceived every failure as progressive identifying methods which do not work. To find out how it doesn't work is to find out how it works. 

Key to success

"If you want to be successful, you have to take 100% responsibility for everything that you experience in your life. This includes the level of your achievements, the results you produce, the quality of your relationships, the state of your health and physical fitness, your income, your debts, your feelings—everything!"
                            -Jack Canfield


When we take responsibility, we do not make excuses. It helps to gain inner strength and power. It helps to improve ourselves. It prevents criticizing others. It is an ingredient of success. So to succeed in life, we have to take 100% responsibility.
