Though it’s only the second week of January the twinkling lights of the holiday season is quickly seeming like a distant memory. Less than 2 weeks ago people were making promises of what they would change in their lives to become a better person.
You don’t need to create a new and improved you. You just need to uncover what already lies within and become more of the goodness of you.
But this isn’t something that can be done on your own or in isolation. If you really want your New Year’s resolutions to become a reality you need people to help you. Find an accountability partner.
What is an accountability partner?
It’s someone who knows your goals in life and shares your desire to see you achieve them. It’s a person who will remind you of the goodness of you and your ability to make changes. And this same person will also be honest with you and push you when you’re slacking off and encourage you when you’re feeling weak.
How do I find one?
Think of the people in your life – your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and acquaintances. Who fits the bill? Who can be both a coach and cheerleader for you? Who will encourage you and share your desire to make changes in your life? That’s the person that you should ask.
What should we do?
Be in constant contact. Simply telling someone your goal isn’t enough. Share the details of your change plan with them. Communicate with them a few times a week. A text, e-mail, or quick phone call to discuss your successes and challenges of the week will help keep you on track.
Share your successes and challenges so far. Let’s Learn. Change. Grow. together!
Let us be your accountability partner. We’re here for you.
