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?...
I’d argue that it’s not what we do, it’s HOW we do it that influences our outcomes.
You ever go to a meeting or a party after you’ve had a bad day? Did you let your bad day come to the party with you?
How’d that go for you?
Not so good, right?
You didn't make any new fans at that shindig did you?
Why? Because you "showed up" to that party with a cloak of darkness around your shoulders.
People felt it as soon as you walked in, no matter how hard you were trying to hide it.
The other option you had was to transcend your circumstances of the day and show up as your best and true self.
This isn't easy to do. It's really hard and it takes practice.
Mastering our mind is the greatest challenge we have as entrepreneurs, as parents, and generally as people.
