Self–accountability is being responsible, feeling empowered to take the right decisions and actions, acquiring proactive thinking instead of reactive, and building strong team relationships. It is more to deal with self-discipline and ensure that you know about your emotional reaction and how to control it as you face any conflict. So, you have strengthened and regulated your emotional equation and slowed down on the negative feelings that you might be feeling. If you hit rock bottom, you must stand up for your mistakes and not start blaming others. That’s where self-discipline comes into action.
