Do this when you feel like you're falling short...
Accountability is non-negotiable for achieving success, period. It’s key in taking full ownership of your life. That means taking ownership of your actions and being responsible for their consequences, whether they are good or bad. It's not about making excuses or passing the blame, it's about taking responsibility for your own actions and their outcomes. It's different from discipline, which is about enforcing rules and consequences, and motivation, which is what drives you to take action.
Being accountable means being open and honest about your actions and their results. It means not trying to hide or excuse your mistakes, but owning them, learning from them and moving forward. It also means taking ownership of a task or problem, and actively working to find solutions and make things happen, instead of waiting for someone else to do it for you.
Take an honest inventory: do you need to improve your accountability to yourself? Here are some quick tips on how:
Set clear and specific goals: Having defined, measurable goals will help you track your progress and hold yourself accountable for achieving them.
Keep a progress journal: Recording your actions and their results in a journal will help you identify patterns and areas for improvement.
Find an accountability partner: Having someone to hold you accountable is extremely beneficial. This could be a friend, mentor or coach, who you meet with regularly to discuss your goals and progress. Or, you can join us inside the fit-flavors community app where you can get support and accountability from hundreds of people like you and me.
Regularly review progress: Scheduling regular check-ins on your progress and goals. Checking in weekly will help you stay accountable and on track and make small habit changes as needed.
Ultimately, if you want to move the needle forward in your life, accountability is not optional. It is THE main means of taking full ownership of your actions and their results, to be transparent and honest about your mistakes and to continuously learn and improve. When I’m not performing at my best, I always come back to re-building my personal accountability.
Take inventory of what areas of your life need more accountability. Spoiler alert: look at the areas of your life where you feel you’re falling short.
