Being responsible means being dependable, keeping promises and honoring our commitments. It is accepting the consequences for what we say and do. It also means developing our potential. People who are responsible don't make excuses for their actions or blame others when things go wrong. A responsible person makes mistakes, but when they do, they take responsibility and make it right. You are where you are because of who you are. Everything that exists in your life exists because of you, because of your behavior, words and actions.
