Why You Must Take Ownership of Your Results

You started the year full of ambitions and good intentions. Now, four months have gone by–just like that. And before you know it, another four months will go by just like that. If you’re not careful, you won’t even see the year go by.

Thus far, are you getting the results you want? Are you accomplishing goals you had set out to accomplish this year? Chance are that you’re accomplishing some, but not all, of them. If that’s your situation, you’re not alone. In fact, it would be surprising if you didn’t experience delays in at least some of your goals.

This short post is to remind you that you’re responsible for your results. Not the government. Not your neighbor. Not your employer. Not your colleagues. You are responsible.

If you’re not getting the results you want, it’s up to you to take the measures to course correct. Indeed, you faced unforeseen situations and setbacks. They’re part of the journey. However, you don’t have to let these define your outcomes. You must adjust and continue to press forward. You may need to go back to the drawing board and review your plans. But no need to stop because you’ve experienced setbacks. Get back on track.

If your year isn’t off to a great start, it’s isn’t too late to turn things around. There are still plenty of time to accomplish many of your goals. It may take a little longer than you initially expected, but you can reach them.

However, you must take ownership of your results. No excuses. No casting blame. Just a straight look in the mirror and making the decision to take the bull by the horns and making a shift. That’s it.
