If you have goals you wish to meet, you need an accountability partner. Here’s why.
The American Society of Training and Development found that people are 65% more likely to reach their goals when they’ve shared them with someone else.
Even better, people are 95% more likely to reach their goals when they share them with a group and meet regularly to review these goals.
I don’t know about you, but that 95% chance looks pretty sweet to me! Here are 4 things an accountability partner can do for you:
Helps You Set Strategic Goals
There is goal setting and then there is ✨GOAL SETTING✨! An accountability partner can help you set goals that are specific, measurable, actionable, realistic and time-bound. When you set goals with someone who is in the same boat as you and has tangible experience with what you are trying to overcome, they can provide feedback and strategic guidance that you may not have access to otherwise. This allows you to take steps towards your goals in a way that will get you there in the most efficient manner possible. To learn how to set great financial goals, check out this blog post.
Helps You Stay Focused And Motivated
Striving towards achieving your goals can be a lonely ride when you’re solo. When someone else is on the journey with you, they can help you refocus on those days where you want to give up. As your eyes are wandering away from the prize, they’ll get your head on straight again.
Additionally, seeing your partner reach their goals can motivate you. Nobody wants to be last place so a bit of healthy competition is great.
Gives Unbiased Advice
Your accountability partner is able to see you from an objective view. They are not directly impacted by the decisions you make and have no need to lie to you to make you feel better. This partner sees you and can call out the blind spots you are not seeing. They can also call you out if they feel like you are taking the wrong approach towards achieving your goals.
Celebrates Your Wins
Wouldn’t it be nice to have your own personal cheerleader? That’s exactly what you get with an accountability partner! Just as sometimes we don’t see our downfalls, we too often fail to acknowledge the progress we are making. Since your partner is tracking your goals, they are able to see the milestones you’re passing, celebrate you and encourage you to keep going.
