Do you have an accountability partner?
How’s that going?
Do you find that you sometimes talk for over an hour and only a few minutes of that time is spent on your goals?
Have you really seen any growth since starting this relationship with your accountability partner?
If you have, GREAT! You’re ahead of the game and the tips I have for you in this post are going to help you advance that relationship even more.
If you haven’t seen progress from this relationship then you’re really going to be thrilled that you stumbled upon this article.
Accountability partners can be a really valuable resource, but oftentimes they fall into the friend territory where we just catch up and we don't focus on clearly defining our goals and how we plan on meeting them.
So, what makes a successful accountability partner relationship?
How can you structure those meetings so that they're productive for BOTH of you?...
We all get afraid. We're human after all.
It’s what we do when we feel fear creep up on us that separates the successful from the unsuccessful. The fulfilled from the unfulfilled.
When you set goals and they scare the crap outta you what does that say to you?
Does it say "Stop"?
Does it say "put that goal aside while I hide in an activity that's more comfortable me"?
It should say “GO”!
It should tell you that you are on the right path and that on the other side of that fear is the next level you’ve been reaching for.
Switch your way of thinking and get excited by fear! It’s your new barometer for judging whether something is worthy of your effort or not.
