Benefits of being responsible
Why bother being responsible?What benefits do we get when we are responsible?
A person who has a reputation of being responsible is trusted to do things on his or her own, without supervision. Being trusted that way is certainly a good feeling.
Children and adults like to feel they are capable of doing things on their own. Such a feeling increases their self-esteem and self-worth.
Trust leads to promotions
A worker who is trusted can soon get assignments of greater responsibility, which will then lead to raises and promotions.
A business that has a reputation of being responsible will gain leadership in its field.
Being responsible and taking responsibility for the things that may go wrong is an admirable character trait. We all dislike dealing with people who are irresponsible or who blame others. So being responsible is a character trait for which we should strive. You get a good reputation. You also feel good about yourself by having such character.
In total a person with a reputation of being responsible is trusted to take on difficult tasks. He or she will not blame others for any problems. Instead, the person will have the character to take full responsibility. With the risk come the rewards of self-worth and possible raises and promotions at work.
