Do you ever feel extremely motivated on January 1st and lose your motivation in 2-4 weeks after not seeing those results you have in mind? Listen, we’ve all been there. However, it is up to YOU to keep yourself accountable for the goals you set.
Do you remember those tips for motivation I mentioned in How To Pick A New Years Resolution ? Well, here is where you need to use those tools to keep you going. Another motivation tool is keeping yourself accountable.
Hitting smaller goals to reach your bigger ones is extremely important for not only motivation, but also self-confidence. Whether it be by logging your progress or the actions you take on a social platform, a private diary, or telling a friend or family member, documenting the steps you are taking can keep you on the right track.
Personally, I use social media. Something about putting it out in the public, saying I am going to do something and showing the steps I am taking to get there, keeps me accountable. However, at the end of the day, if I didn’t do what I said I was going to do, that is on me - my goals are effected, nobody else’s.
At the Abs Company, two of our Core Values are: “We Believe That Hard Work Pays Off and Produces Results That Matter” and “We Believe in Never Giving Up Because Nothing is Impossible”. These hold true in every aspect of goal setting. Your goals matter and it is not impossible to get there. However, it does take hard work.
I am here to ask you today - ARE YOU KEEPING YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE? Have you started on your goals for 2019 or have you been slacking? What can you do RIGHT NOW to move the needle? It doesn’t have to be something big, take a lot of time or money - it can be small. A lot of small things turn into big things. So let’s keep going and start keeping ourselves accountable!
