Do you Have an Accountability Partner?
Who supports you? Do you meet on a regular basis? Are you of the school you will pick yourself up and can do this by yourself? One of the things that athletes who train for the Olympics, an event or just for the next goal, is they have a coach or someone who can assist how they can reach the next level. That coach or accountability partner can see your strengths and areas that can impair and point out how you can improve that move. If you want to write that bestseller, you might need an editor or take composition courses to improve your craft. Do you want to sell online or market your product or service? How do you gauge is the best way, This might be the technical details. It is having another set of eyes that can help you reach your goal.
What may lie underneath and can undermine your best efforts are your habits. Do you have short-term goals written down? Are you working daily towards your dream? What is your long-term goal? Why is it important to you? Do you have a quiet space to work on your projects, manage your money and know the details of your finance? What are the distractions? What inspires you? Does watching all the latest shows of DIY shows or HGTV episodes for hours before starting or completing your goals for the day? Habits or distractions can derail your best ideas.
What do you believe about yourself? I am a writer and make money from my craft. What am I doing each day to make this happen? Who knows what I write? Do I have a youtube channel? Who is my target audience? What type of books do I write and how can I make a difference in someone’s life?
These are questions that you and an accountability partner can pose and get you on your path and reach your goal sooner rather than later. I have used some tools that have helped me to visualize my work. Trello.com works for me as a project management tool. Your habits must be consistent with what you believe and how you plan to show up. (put in the link)
To create new habits that support your beliefs, you must decide what is your goal and make the changes. I got organized and wrote my to-do tasks as a memo on my phone daily. I made an appointment with myself. I planned my project on Trello.com. I decided to plan and add a course that I wanted to complete within 30 days as part of my to-do-tasks. One of the courses I am taking now is How to find and know your Avatar. https://theblackbusinessschool.com/courses/enrolled/239920
Choose to grow and build your self-esteem and get support for your dreams. Have a focus on your goal. Set up your plan for success and make an appointment for your goal daily. Take a course that can support you along the way. Do you have an accountability partner?
Happy investing in yourself one day at a time.
