Today we’re going to be breaking down the five steps of successful accountability! There’s actually a method or structure that you can implement to hold yourself accountable and set yourself up to win. We’re gonna do this in five, easy, awesome steps!
1. Accountability Buddy & Teamwork
The first (and perhaps most important) step here is to acquire a teammate or a team a group of people that are all on the same page and committed to the context of accountability the context or the environment of accountability is so important in this ecosystem everyone is on the same page everyone is in a shared space of commitment and personal progress and non-judgment and unconditional support so the first step to successful accountability is building a strong team whoopsie daisy let’s use blue for the ocean because your team is much like the ocean that you swim inside when you are holding yourself accountable ow team
2. Create Clear Commitments
Get clear so often we don’t get clear because then we are not truly held accountable for what we say we’re up to we can’t miss the mark if we’re not really aiming for something so this next step is so important that you examine what you’re up to in your life you look at what what is most important you might have eight things that you could do but i guarantee you only one or two of those is really asking for urgency so identify what’s most important and that will inform your clarity on what you’re getting committed to get clear oftentimes.
3. Declare Your Commitments
This is this one isn’t talked about it’s to actually declare what you’re committed to declaring it could look like writing it down sharing it with your team saying it out loud i am committed to this speak it out state it declare it to the universe let the spiritual beings know what you’re up to take a stand for what you’re up to and demonstrate that so the universe can respond there’s something very powerful in stating or declaring what you’re actually committed to and this practice is important within your team because you’re declaring to your teammate and you’re receiving and listening for for for them for what they’re up to so you’re mutually holding that space of supportive declaration.
4. Take Bold Action (or don’t)
Now that you got your team you’re clear and you declared it now it’s time for action or not but this is your opportunity for action will you follow through in what you said you were going to do and make it black and white make it win or lose you either did it or you didn’t find simplicity and clarity in the accountability process so you can really flex that muscle each time you follow through on what you say you’re gonna do you’re flexing your muscle of integrity and this is internally building strength-building self-esteem building that sense of I can really do anything I get clearer that I’m committed to so declaration and then action follow through or don’t
5. Results & Feedback (loop to #1)
Now you get to see what the results are what are the results just what happened did you follow through if not what came up for you what were the the no first is just the simplicity of the results what are we left within the wake of our declaration and then since this is a loopy loopy loop number five comes back around to your team you take these results and you connect with your team what worked what didn’t work how can we adjust and shift based on the results that we’re receiving what needs to change who do i need to become such that these commitments are fulfilled next time around team clarity declaration action results take those results back to your team get clear once again make new declarations take some bold decisive action get those results take those back to your team and watch how this cycle just continues this is a structured way to build accountability into your daily routine and to elevate your your game each and every day through the power of your own word you are a gift set yourself up to win strengthen your word. You got this!
