Do you want to get more done? Make faster progress on your goals? See tangible results in your life?
Itâ€™s been wisely said that, â€œAccountability, not Ability, determines your Results.â€
Do you have ACCOUNTABILITY for your goals established in your life?
This is todayâ€™s million dollar question.
If you answered â€œno,â€ this one major factor could be what is holding you back from the million dollar lifestyle ~ million dollar relationships, million dollar health, million dollar career path or business, or literally a million dollar bank account.
Without accountability, you fall prey to the number one issue derailing your action taking with your goals: allowing your moods or emotions to determine your follow through.
When I ask if you have accountability in your life, Iâ€™m asking if you have a coach, an accountability partner, and/or a mastermind group structured into your life?
The value of having coaches in my life has been a game changer to my results. When you have accountability from positive coaches, partners or mastermind groups in your life they do three critical things for you and your results:
1.Â Â They know of your goals and cheer you on in going for them
2.Â Â They hold you accountable to pursuing action items that achieve these goals
3.Â Â They stretch you farther than you will push yourself to achieve your goals and dreams faster while also helping you work through the challenges and obstacles of growth.
This support in your life is invaluable!
Accountability = Action and Action = Results
See, without accountability in our lives, we let ourselves off the hook. We procrastinate. We let fear or doubt or distractions take us off path. And the biggest factor in my experiences, is we allow our moods or emotions determine our follow through. We go to the gym if we â€œfeel like itâ€ or we donâ€™t go because â€œweâ€™re too tired.â€ We complete the sales calls or book proposal if itâ€™s â€œconvenientâ€ versus critical to the next steps of our progress.
This doesnâ€™t mean something is wrong with you or that youâ€™re not motivated: it means that youâ€™re human.
â€œAccountability, not ability, determines our results.â€
The issue isnâ€™t your ability or if youâ€™re smart enough. Or if you could just be more organized or whatever the block is in your life. With a coach and accountability in your life you will get more done, more often, and in faster time than going this path of achievement on your own.
You deserve a million dollar lifestyle in your relationships, your health, your career, and yes, your bank account. If youâ€™re serious about having this lifestyle, get a coach or an accountability partner or team in your life as soon as possible. Donâ€™t delay. Donâ€™t procrastinate. Take action on this advice today. You may be thinking, â€œonce I get ahead financially or Iâ€™m less busy, then Iâ€™ll get a coachâ€ with the irony that likely to help you get ahead financially or less busy and more balanced with your time will happen once you hire the coach or set up your accountability partner.
As Jim Rohn has brilliantly said, â€œIf you want more than what youâ€™ve got, you must become more than who you are.â€ Work on you, develop you, and invest in you to create the results you want.
Youâ€™re worth it!

I love the change of seasons. I donâ€™t know where you live, but here in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, the seasons are in transition from summer to the beginning of autumn. You can feel the temperatures cool off and you can feel a change in the air that change is upon us.Â I love what Price Pritchett has so eloquently stated, â€œChange comes bearing giftsâ€¦â€
With every new season is the reminder that we too can focus on changing and creating a new season and a new experience for our lives. As fall is upon us (or whatever season youâ€™re heading into now), Iâ€™d like you to consider the following thought and question to support you in creating your best life NOWâ€¦.
Who would you like to become and what would you like to achieve in the 4th Quarter of 2010?
Rather than wait until the New Year â€“ 2011 â€“ is upon us and we are setting goals, plans, and resolutions, letâ€™s get focused on the season we are in and create powerful changes now, for this is the moment that we haveâ€¦
So my challenge to you is this: how do you want to start 2011? What do you want to focus on becoming and achieving NOW in 4th Quarter 2010 so as you begin 2011 you are already creating and becoming the success you want now?
Create a focus or goal for the following areas to achieve, experience, or become in this season:
-Â Â Â Â Â Â Health & Fitness â€“ What kind of energy do you want to begin 2011 with?
-Â Â Â Â Â Â Relationships â€“ Personally or professionally, what do you want to see grow and transpire?
-Â Â Â Â Â Â Career & Business â€“ What one project completed could rocket your career or business to the next level?
-Â Â Â Â Â Â Home Life â€“ Is your home peaceful for you? What simple things can you do to create more peace in your home?
-Â Â Â Â Â Â Organization â€“ Spaces such as office, home, car, filing, time, etc. Are you organized? Implement the 15 minute rule to Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â address areas throughout the week.
-Â Â Â Â Â Â Financial â€“ What is your 4th Quarter financial goal? If you donâ€™t have one, get one!
-Â Â Â Â Â Â Fun & Recreation â€“ Create a â€œJoy Listâ€ where you outline the various activities that bring you joy and happiness and Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â then do 3 things off that list every week. More joy = greater ability to attract what you want AND joy is something we can Â Â Â Â Â Â Â do for ourselves every day.
-Â Â Â Â Â Â The Holidays â€“ if applicable to you, get clear now on what experiences you want to create with friends and family and Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â then treat this like any other goal that you make plans, affirmations, and intentions for. Itâ€™s amazing what you can create Â Â Â Â Â Â Â when you are clear!
I wish you an amazing 4th Quarter focus! Continue to ask yourself the questions, ponder, and get clear about what you want to achieve in this season for your life and goals. Enjoy!!
