Accountability is a tremendous motivator. And we all struggle when it comes to regulating accountability and calling people on broken promises. Yet, we must remember that with accountability comes great responsibility.

If you’ve found yourself disheartened by people who don’t keep their promises, then you will be able to relate to what am talking about.

Odds on, we all value people who make promises and keep. Some, on the other hand, mismanage their commitments.

Broken promises
Keep your word.

We need to stop making promises about what we are going to deliver. If we must make a promise, let’s give ourselves more time than we think we will need.

We all have a holding pattern that protects us from ourselves and unnecessary storms of life.

Over time, I have learned that in life, when we encounter our holding pattern, our first initiative is to run away to avoid the frustration of waiting.

In our fast-paced world, we are tempted to live life in the fast lane. We want to deliver on time and prove to be efficient at all times- which isn’t a bad thing. Yet, while we want to deliver on time and be efficient, let’s be careful not to irritate ourselves.

While we strive to be accountable, and not undermine our reputations, influences, let’s also learn to tolerate other people’s shortcomings and encourage them to be accountable.

In what area of your life are the promises you made causing you frustration? Own it today!

Blessings and Love ❤️
