Accountability....What's That?

By: Joel Luedke

This is a shorter post that I was inspired to writer after listening to Dr. John Curtis, author of "Mindset of a Winner", at a meeting today.  The power of your mind and controlling what you think and how you respond is extremely powerful and appears to often be the missing link in a lot of athletes and people working at a high level.

One of the areas that that really stuck with me was setting the example you want to see and also 

getting people to buy in from attrition.  It is really hard to get people to buy in to utilizing affirmations and visualizing their success in what they have done in the past and what they are hoping to accomplish in the future if you don't do it yourself.  The speaker also talked about how to people who may not want to be a part of something like this to join in and it is finding the people that do believe in it, reap the results and then get everyone to joint along.

All that sounds great but with that we are laying out a challenge to everyone with this post.  First off affirmations will be written by me and posted as soon as I get them done (check back for a #tbt and an update to this article).  The second option we are putting out there is tracking how well we are sticking to the things we need to do on a daily basis in order to get after the goals we set (along with those affirmations).  How we are going to do it is with the "Way of Life" app.  You can track 3 goals on a daily basis for free or for $2.99 you can do unlimited and run it on a daily basis.

Now for the accountability piece of it all.  you can export your results and I am planning to do so on a monthly basis so you can see how well I am sticking to my plan and actually getting closer to goals.

I'm all for anyone joining as it will only improve the system, let me know and find a way to hold yourself and others accountable.

There are a other options that work really well.  Often times setting a 'bet' or 'wager' with a friend or a family member can be the motivation you need to get yourself going.  Often times the fear of losing something like money can be what you need in order to jump start yourself and get the results you are looking for.
