Earn It

Earned Not Given

I’m going to explain the importance of accountability by having you ask and answer this one question:

What’s the point making a commitment, making a promise or even setting a goal if you have no intention of honoring, keeping or achieving them?

Accountability is the quality or state of being accountable; especially: an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one’s actions.

Accountability serves and protects your character, credibility and commitments. It ensures that what you want to accomplish gets accomplished.

Throughout each day of your life it’s important to understand that ALL unfinished goals, projects and relationships are the result of broken promises and agreements.

The list includes marriages, college educations, weight loss, sales production and any other commitment that one may enter into.

Think about the last time you entered into an agreement with someone thinking you understood the terms, and then suddenly the tables were turned unexpectedly?

How did you feel? I bet angry, furious, disappointed, or perhaps even shocked at the other person’s audacity not to hold up their end of the bargain.

Personal accountability is the glue that holds a goal or commitment in place. It serves as an insurance policy on your journey to success.

If you’ve got a great goal, idea or opportunity but no personal accountability to see it through to the end, you really don’t have much!

Unaccountable people make excuses, blame others, put things off, act confused and play helpless.

They pretend to be ignorant, and often hide behind their computers, paperwork, and jargon.

It’s a contagious disease, one that can sink a business, a family and a life if not cured.

Your biggest concern in any goal setting initiative is not with your skill, ability, or intelligence—it’s with your commitment.

Unless you are committed, and hold yourself personally accountable for the results you promised there would be a sense of negligence to everything you do, not to mention a permanent stain on your character.

Accountability means that the task will be accomplished – on time, on budget, as promised. Pulling your own weight is your responsibility. Always do what you say you are going to do!

Personal accountability is what achievement is all about. The moments you feel like quitting are the times you must take a flashlight to your soul and inspect yourself for will, courage, and spirit.

You cannot afford to tarnish your own reputation with yourself by doing something so bush as quitting just because things got difficult.

Personal accountability is the countdown clock of your goal. It starts ticking the second you begin and stops when you achieve the goal or quit.

Your daily challenge is to enforce accountability in all areas of your life. You must honor your commitments, keep your promises, and achieve every goal you set.

If accountability is applied equally and consistently, at all times, it is the enforcement tool that will help keep you on track and forever moving north in the direction of your dreams.

It is a tool that, when universally applied, will change the way you think and act and, ultimately, the results you produce. It will help transform you into a dynamic, unstoppable results oriented machine!

If you’ll allow me, I’d like to help you enforce greater accountability on your goals and future plan by creating a life plan with built in deadlines.

I’ve put together this Life Planning program (the one that I use) that walks you through the entire process, and the best part is that as one of my readers…you can use this code to save 50% on your plan.

Go here to get your life plan, and use this code to save a bundle.

The code is: success

In the end, success is earned not given, and it begins by making the decision to honor your commitments, to keep your promise and achieve your goals. That’s integrity in action.

Everything Counts!
