How’s your New Year’s resolution coming along? I know, I know. You probably are saying, “What New Year’s resolution?”

You may have started one that fell by the wayside before spring flowers were blooming. Or, you may be against those types of resolutions altogether because you know you do not need to wait to the first of the year to get started with your goals.

I have a secret I want to share with you. I have found that I can consistently work toward any goal I set with this secret. This secret often allows me to not only complete the goal but excel at the goal.

What’s my secret?

Good old-fashion accountability. Whether it is a:

Pesky workout buddy (I can see my abs after having 8 tumors surgically removed from my womb despite hearing stories that my abs would never be visible again),

Business friend, a.k.a. a real hustler, moving in the same direction (we are charting unknown territory together in different fields, again in spite of naysayers),

Or a family member that is counting my dinero (this is when dreams hit reality, bills, and life),

And anyone else you have to answer to.

I find that it is harder to let my goals get pushed to the “back burner” of life when I have to answer to someone else.

To whom are you accountable, especially in your business?

Some of you may think, you are right, when I worked with such-and-so or I was a part of XYZ team/club, I really got things done. I want to challenge you that by the end of this week (whatever week you are reading this), you reconnect with those that helped you in the past or find a new crew going forward.

For others of you, I can read your thoughts, “Okay but I REALLY don’t have anyone like that to help me get my business to the next level”. YES YOU DO! Every week I want to challenge you to push yourself in your business. Now there are no more excuses.

Make yourself accountable to others that are driven and watch how far you go!
