Take responsibility

Character is how you behave when you screw up.

Do you admit it was you who was responsible or do you look for someone or circumstances to pass on the blame to?

I have found that taking responsibility of the consequences of your actions or inactions is probably the single biggest contributor to promoting you from person to leader.

Life is about making choices – sometimes we don’t make the right choices. It turns out we could have done or selected better. Acted more prudently or not acted at all. What will differentiate you from others is how you act or react to criticism when you messed it up.

There will be many occasions where you will have to decide to take on a tough assignment, which will call strain your energy time. When you will see others go back home and probably be watching a match on the tele while you are in office. When you look around and see only yourself working at middle of the night. Take these opportunities and deliver to your best.

Never shirk responsibility. You will never look back to regret it.

There is a old verse in hindi – “Girte hain sheh savar he maidane jung mein, woh murda dil kya khaak girega jo gutnon ke bal chale”

“It is only the brave-heart riders who fall in the battlefield, what will the weak hearted coward fall who crawls on his knees”
