The corporate world identifies “PR” as Public Relations.
A good “PR” individual advances and succeeds in the business world and understands that the possession of “PR” is essential to leadership and teamwork.
How about we shift the defining of “PR” to mean Personal Responsibility.
A good “PR” individual only advances and succeeds in his personal life so far as he is able to take Personal Responsibility for …
and other notable, unlikeable, distasteful characteristics he possesses.
Gosh … that’s not fun.
But that’s leadership.
Until you can take Personal Responsibility ….
You should not be allowed access to larger responsibility.
Personal Responsibility involves ….
Taking the blame instead of passing the buck
Pointing the finger inward instead of outward.
Admitting flaws, failures and weaknesses instead of trying to cover them.
Shouldering the burden of other peoples’ poor choices.
Are you a good “PR” person?
Assess and evaluate a present issue in your personal life and in the lives of those around you and simply consider how much “PR” you’re willing to take.
Hopefully you’ll arrive at a good “PR” answer.
That’s short for Positive Response.
Develop your “PR” skills and remember ...
begin with yourself.
“Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go, keep her;
For she is thy life."
