Benjamin Franklin once wrote, “He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” Now, falling short of a goal, making mistakes, facing extraordinary circumstances, these are all situations that every person could face. However, excuses don’t get you anywhere. What a waste of time! Thankfully, no Gano Excel Affiliate success story has happened without it being a team effort. You are not alone in your journey toward greater health and wealth. So here are some tips on developing accountability for yourself that will propel you toward success.

  • HONESTY. Social psychologists conclude that most of the time people blame external factors for shortcomings instead of admitting internal flaws. So, when it comes to keeping yourself accountable, you may not be the most trustworthy judge. However, we can train ourselves to accept honest feedback from others. Having an unbiased partner – or even an app – can help us face the truth about our behavior.
  • CONSISTENCY. It’s said that practice makes perfect. Accountability is not about a one-time review. It is about constant, vulnerable exposure to your goals and standards so that you build a long-lasting character change. Committing to a partnership with a coach, friend or spouse will create an avenue for ongoing, consistent feedback.
  • EMPATHY. There is great value in human understanding. Apps are excellent tools to provide undeniable data in the face of rationalizations. However, you may balk at the idea of robotic perfection, leading you to justify lapses in behavior. Seeking human mentorship reminds you that change is possible. You have others who understand you and are on your side.

Together with teamwork and a commitment to honest accountability, actualizing your dreams becomes possible! Establish a solid foundation and reach for what you want to achieve.
