Without accountability, without taking responsibility for your life, you can’t build a great life. Without taking responsibility for your life, you can’t move forward in your life. Don’t fear accountability. Don’t let it stop you from living your life. Don’t let it stop you from taking risks.

To grow, you must take risks. According to Naval Ravikant, “Embrace accountability and take business risks under your own name. Society will reward you with responsibility, equity, and leverage. … Clear accountability is important. Without accountability, you don’t have incentives. Without accountability, you can’t build credibility. But you take risks. You risk failure. You risk humiliation. You risk failure under your own name.” If you want to be successful, you must embrace risks.

You risk failure under your own name. You risk embarrassment under your own name. You risk take responsibility under your own name. Don’t risk anything under another person’s name. Risk everything under your own name. Because it is not about them. It is about you. It is about your growth, your success, your life. Embrace risks and move forward under your own name.
