I recently had the most awesome meeting with a friend who specializes in helping others find their purpose. I love that she’s so genuine and comes from a biblical standpoint on how she conducts the meeting. After we discussed all the goals, plans, and dreams, we wrote them down with dates. They always say a goal with a date makes it real, so I came up with dates for the month of August. After all was said and done, my friend asked me who was my accountability partner. I chuckled and said I was my accountability partner, even though I knew I clearly sucked at being it thus far. It got me to thinking that maybe I needed to switch it up.
Sometimes we get so busy that we forget that we made promises to ourselves. We can remember everything we promised other people, but we fall short when staying true to ourselves. That’s why it’s important to write down our dreams, goals, and visions so that we can remember we need to work towards them. I have decided to hang my goals with dates by my bed on my vision board. I also want my friends to work together in being accountability partners. Whoever we spend a lot of time with may be the ones to remind us of our goals. But I do know you have to be careful with who you tell your dreams to. Some may not believe in you, so you have to make sure that you can work towards it on your own if necessary.
If you want something bad enough, you will work towards it. But sometimes it does take an extra push, especially when you have so much on your plate. We all work, some have children, others have spouses, so it can be a task to work towards something new. But if you want different, you have to be willing to do something different. If you can’t find an accountability partner amongst your group of friends, you have to ask yourself a question. Are they truly your friends if they don’t want to see you succeed? Hopefully that won’t be your case and you can soar to the top and complete your goal list in no time.
