Do you have an Accountability Buddy to help out when you need it? Many of us have dozens of them, whether they be family or friends, they are people in our lives who hold us accountable to ourselves and others. What we all really need is a success partner! Someone who knows what success looks like from the ground up! A real live entrepreneur who is successful and innovative and always seems to be growing their business. I believe that is the next step to making sure you are doing what is necessary to stay on a path to success.
At the end of the day we are accountable to ourselves – our success is a result of what we do. Catherine Pulsifer
How to Choose an Accountability Buddy
When you decide to invite a “success partner” into your world, you need to select someone who is already pushing the boundaries of growth, accountability, and motivation. Someone who is not afraid of taking big risks when it comes to scaling their business. Look at your network of associates, friends, peers who can drive your ambition that will match their own.
Depending on what kind of relationship you are looking for, think of this: Accountability partnerships are more “process” oriented with the goal of keeping you accountable to the process. Success partnerships are “progress” oriented which is measured on how much tangible movement towards your end goal you make. The focus should be on results over the process of it all.
