* It is important to understand that the success of each building block fully depends on the cultivation of the other pillars.



Responsibility is acting upon and following through with obligations and commitments.


Responsible behavior means doing what needs to be done rain or shine, easy or difficult, feel like it or not, and even if it is inconvenient. This integral action builds character, boosts confidence, fosters trust, and sets us on the path to becoming strong leaders. It is a character trait that increases our overall well-being and our chances of becoming influential and successful in whatever we choose to do in life.

However, responsibility is more complex than that. It takes a great deal of self-management. To do well, you need to allocate the right amount of time, and not overload yourself. It may mean that you have to say “no” to new and more exciting projects in order to fulfill the promises you've already made. By following through with your commitments, you demonstrate loyalty and reliability. This will result in a happy and balanced life.

On the other hand, not taking care of our obligations responsibly causes disorder, disappointments, and chaos. This leads to stress and anxiety that can manifest into other bad habits. Eventually, a lifetime of irresponsibility can result in a mental breakdown and serious health issues.


Your personal brand is YOU! It is everything that makes you who you are and how others experience you.

Here's the thing, most people never experience the real YOU because it's buried behind insecurities, fears, traumas, anxiety, overwhelm, and lack of self-awareness and self-development.

Part of building a confident and healthy personal brand depends heavily on responsibility, which is the spine of your character. Being a responsible person establishes you as someone who makes good choices, can be trusted, and is dependable. This is vital to our well-being, relationships, and success in life.

To make healthy choices, either as an educator or a student, it is essential that you develop self-awareness, so that you know why you do what you do, what your clear intentions are, and how you want others to experience you. Once you understand these things then it makes it easier to show up responsibly. To understand how this all works together, here is a clear path to developing responsibility:
