Personal Responsibility

Personal responsibility is a part of everyday life. Personal responsibility comes from your moral compass and how well you think things through. Personal responsibility also goes hand-in-hand with how big of an effort you put forth as a child to do the things your parents and teachers asked of you. People should show personal responsibility in every choice they make and every action they take. If they do not think things through as one should; life can be very hard, and one can end-up some place one does not want to be, like jail for instance.

Those that have a conscience and accept personal responsibility usually have the jobs, children, nice car, nice house, and a good education. Without good strong core values one has nothing. People need standards and goals set before them to help them strive for a better future. Personal responsibility also shows that they are trying to build good character and morals. Without good character and morals they would be deadbeats expecting the government or someone else to pay their way, like so much of the world today.

Statics show in 2013 alone the federal government spent 391. 6 billion dollars in Welfare. ” This is not the kind of example we should be setting for the future president, congressman, or house representative. They do not need to be showed they do not have to work for what they have. They also do not need someone feeling sorry for and just hand it to them. Children should be taught that things are not just handed to them; they have to work for them.

They have to set goals and strive to reach them. Children should know they do not have to be another statistic. With that personal responsibility comes into play. The most important reason everyone should show personal responsibility in every choice they make and action they take is that personal responsibility shows they pay attention to what they are doing to others and his or her country. Personal responsibility also shows their children how to be more productive members of society.

Personal responsibility teaches them how to gain success and be a good example for someone else. They can give back to communities just as we have. They can teach someone else to give back as well. Personal Responsibility is taught because it is not inborn. It can be learned, and it can be learned at any time in life. Personal responsibility is also built off a foundation of education. With it being learned at an early age a community can function better because of those who are guided by personal responsibility.

Those that are not responsible or do not care to take responsibility make it that much harder for the rest of the community. People also show personal responsibility when keeping up with their finances. They have to pay their bills on time to show responsibility. Unfortunately most American’s are drowning in credit card debit. If the credit card industry were to collapse America would be faced with a depression the likes of which we have never seen before.

In conclusion, although there is no argument against personal responsibility as it is a part of life as a child and as an adult; everyone should show personal responsibility in every choice they make and action they take, for two main reasons. First, personal responsibility shows they pay attention to what they are doing to and for others, but most important personal responsibility shows that they are trying to build good character and morals. Without character and morals they have nothing. Character defines what kind of person they are, and they get good character by showing good personal responsibility.
