Speaker touts accountability in interactions

Individuals need to take a hard look at themselves and their attitudes when determining their personal accountability, a motivational speaker said Wednesday.

Matt Rush, a fourth generation farmer/rancher, told members of the Young Professionals of Levelland that they should look at their daily lives and see if they are headed in the direction they want to go.

‘What’s our attitude, what is our personal accountability like?’ Rush said. ‘How are we selling ourselves?’

He offered a personal story about a trip that had its challenging moments.

After helping his father harvest grain in eastern New Mexico, Rush took a flight before Thanksgiving to Salt Lake City, Utah for a speaking engagement.

After arriving there, he asked how he might get to Layton, a town north of Salt Lake City.

‘I realized I had no clue where I was going to go,’ he said.

The visitor caught a $20 shuttle bus ride to Layton. The driver advised his passengers that the bus made one stop – at a McDonald’s restaurant, but not at Rush’s hotel.
