Accountability is accepting personal responsibility for your actions. Yes, it is important to hold yourself responsible. BUT sometimes we need an accountability partner to hold us to an attainable standard. I will be the first to say that I do a great job coming up with goals in my head and even writing them out. The part where I need the most assistance is consistency, this is where having a accountability partner would be helpful. We all need someone every now and then to remind us of where we can be. Accountability and having a partner totally falls under Self-Care, as it directly affects your success. Acknowledgment is the first step and I loudly announce that I need HELP.
1) It's okay to have multiple accountability partners, based on the area you are working on. I am in need of a healthy partner to lose these lbs., a school partner to encourage me to push the next 4 years, and a self care partner to remind me to laugh and put things in perspective and order.
2) Find a partner that you will not dismiss but respect their opinion.
3) Believe in yourself enough to know when you need that extra push.
My weekly vow:
This week I will plan for my future more and find an accountability partner in each area that I need.
