What does it mean to be accountable? What does it mean to be “Self-Accountable?”
To be self-accountable means to be answerable for the obligations and duties you have in your life by the very nature of being a live human being in the web of life on planet earth.
Accountability means accountability that is owning the ability to account for your own life. To rise above one’s circumstances and demonstrate the ownership necessary for achieving desires results. Goal setting gives you an idea of what you may want to accomplish. What do you want to achieve? What steps will you make to stay on track with your goals, you must be motivated and have a commitment to yourself and for yourself to be successful.
Follow through is important in reinforcing your chosen goals. Consistency in planning each day to work on yourself and your goals. Clear and measurable goals, for instance to lose weight you may want to set a target weight that you want to achieve and giving it the most realistic time frame. Quit smoking by listening to you recorded session daily and reduce the number of cigarettes smoked each day. By setting a reasonable goal.
Don’t settle for less than what you commit to. Complete your goals and following through increases self-confidence. Be honest with yourself, set aside the time for success using your time wisely. When you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Having self-confidence and self-worth is a positive attitude to have. Create a time each day to work on your goals. This creates consistency and a new habit can be changed or formed in 21 to 28 days.
According to the American Society of Training and Development did a study on accountability and found that you have a 65% of completing a goal if you commit to someone. And if you have a specific accountability appointment with that person you’ve committed to you will increase your chance of success by 95%.
It’s the perfect commitment process you need for long term goals and success. If your goals demand it, you could seek out a Life Coach or a Clinical Hypnotherapist that can provide you with the tools you need to “hold” you accountable.
Create a goal, ask yourself, why do I want to hold myself accountable? What are the benefits in keeping myself accountable? Make this a priority to accomplish the changes you want to make. Log your accomplishments and make your plans a reality by setting the same time each day to work on what it is you want to achieve and successfully accomplish it. Keep your word to yourself, because you deserve it.
