How can we be more responsible?
Being responsible can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be hard. Just remember three things: be honest, be reliable, and be accountable for your actions. If you can do those three things, you’ll be well on your way to being a responsible person. Let’s break it down a little further.
First, being honest means being truthful in what you say and do. It also means being open and transparent with others, and not hiding anything from them.

And finally, being accountable for your actions means taking ownership of your choices and consequences – both good and bad. So there you have it: the three key ingredients of responsibility. Just mix them all together, and voila – you’re well on your way to becoming a more responsible person!

Responsibility quotes that will help improve your daily activities
“We must all work in harmony with each other to stand up for what is right, to speak up for what is fair, and to always voice any corrections so that the ignorant become informed and justice is never ignored.

For the moment we know the truth about ourselves, we can take both responsibility for our own lives and inspired action to create exactly the life which is our birthright. In other words, you were meant to win.” – Jacob Nordby
