I have never revised a blog post unless I noticed a weird grammer error. However, today I am led to add one last inperative step to accountability.
I pray you are having a wonderful week! Today I spoke to a small group about individual accountability. Most times it is easier to judge the actions of others than to look deep within ourselves. Once you look within it forces you to change especially if you do not like what you see. This process of changing is never easy but it is essential in order to live your best life. Well, how does it look when you are changing and holding yourself accountable?
You start using the word "I". Once you have reached a level of accountability you stop blaming and start accepting the choices you made. You get to a point of understanding that your choices are learning lessons that you will be able to apply going forward in your life. A lesson learned is not a failure to me it is actually a valuable win.
You use your time wisely to get better. When you spend so much time avoiding accountability then you spend less time working on getting better. In order to get better it requires a daily focus. Therefore seek ways you can get better through prayer, reading and meditation. If you are not getting better than you are growing bitter towards people and things around you.
You accept your uniqueness. Accountability requires that you get in tune with your heart, thoughts and actions. Only then will you realize that you were created to be special. That uniqueness may not fit perfectly in this world. Honestly, it will not fit:) However, your uniqueness and positive inspiration is exactly what this world needs.
Never ever give up. When God has planted a vision in your heart you have to give it time to harvest. In that process, you may experience a lot of worry, pain and confusion. ...and emotions of giving up on what makes you unique. However, give all of these things to God because you can not control them. Only then, can you focus with clarity and less worry on making the vision a reality. Remember, accountability comes from overriding undeserving emotions with a commitment to living out positive daily actions. Someone is waiting on the other side of your completed vision to become inspired to achieve more. ..so never give up!
Remember, God didn't use perfect people. He used imperfect people that were willing to be held accountable and willing to make a heart change.
Thank you so much for reading and have a blessed day!
