The UnBroken Podcast is a call to action to create a different direction, dialogue, and narrative for your life. Dr Rachel Taylor explores the topics of self-responsibility, self-accountability, and self-ownership in this episode, sponsored by A Podcast Company.
Our behaviours can be broken down into five pillars, according to Dr Rachel: fairness, honesty, courage, respect, and responsibility. How do you fare in each area? How do you feel about the need for equitable collaborations? Do you like seeing the truth? Do you have heart? What do you do when you feel disrespected? What are you responsible for?
Building self-responsibility is more than just taking on the emotional world of everyone around you. That only leads to becoming full of anxiety, because you are standing for danger and potential loss or harm on behalf of other people, and in doing so you forget to take care of yourself.
We really need to understand how we make decisions, and how that factors into ownership, Dr Rachel advises. If we are not thinking logically and consciously about the decisions we are making, it’s going to be difficult to want to take responsibility or be accountable for anything.

- Don’t just take on everyone else’s responsibilities! Everyone has their own, and while it is good to help people, you shouldn’t constantly do so at your expense.
- Before making a decision, think about it deeply, slowly, and consciously.
