Last week, one of PWRN’s many blog readers suggested that I write about Response-Abilities as if Responsibilities was two words instead of 1 complete word or 1 complete thought.
In their mind, people are held for their response towards their abilities. In other words, when you make that decision, fatal or otherwise, you are responding to your abilities to either take care of something or not.
In my world, I hope that you and I are responsible for whatever activities we associate in or held accountable for. Which makes for interesting comments back and forth.To be held responsible means you are responding to a set of activities, behavior, or character within you that threatens what you can or can’t or won’t do. It’s your inner abilities that can determine whether you’re doing a good job, a mediocre job, or you fail at that job.
Within the world of mastering your interpersonal skills, it’s very important that one knows the difference and act upon it.
Whether you like it or not, you will always be held accountable for whatever activity or ability follow-through that you do. You capabilities make you unique-someone else may not have the perseverance, stubborness, or cleverness that you possess. Each person is unique. Each person carries their own personal brand at how they get things done. Each person determine whether or not they stay within the colored lines of the picture.
When you don’t do what’s expected of you, then you’re not fulfilling your abilities to the best that you know how. Your response to those abilities are dampened by your indifference to doing a good job.
Whereas another person may pick up the ball and carry it over the line. They respond to a certain situation and prove to themselves and everyone else around them that their abilities will carry them further to achieving their success.
In a way, response to one’s abilities and responsibilities are very much the same. Each demands of the person that you react and try to overcome what obstacles might lie in their way. At the same time, this same person takes responsibility for seeing these activities through, and that nothing will stop them because they are willing to take that change to overcome and succeed.
Clear as mud.
Next week Assertiveness, and then, we go in through the eye of the needle.
