You know those people who just seem to get it DONE? The ones who are always on top of their game, they don't sit around and wait for things to happen - they’re do-ers. See, we’re not all like that, but for those who are - they would say that they value personal responsibility A LOT.
Here's a weird fact: Only 42% of Americans have personal responsibility as a value. When compared to some of the other values Kate Bradley Chernis and David Allison have discussed so far, that's not a lot!
What makes that a little troubling is when you look at it from this one specific perspective: VOTING! Belonging is INSANELY valued by Americans, with so many being proud to live in this country or fight for this country. The biggest (and easiest) thing you can do to support your country (and to fuel that good old sense of belonging) is to vote!
Whether that be in big national elections, state elections, or small community elections - voting is your personal responsibility. And if you never have before, or if it has been a good few years since you’ve done so, you may forget the feeling of belongingness that comes with voting. It is POWERFUL, yo!
Now get off that couch and go make some change
