Personally, I almost never use accountability partners or other people to hold me accountable to my goals or resolutions.
I am accountable to myself and the high standards I set for myself.
And that is all I need.
If you need someone else to hold you accountable to your goals and resolutions that probably means you have these two things going on:
1) You don’t want it bad enough.
You need to increase the compellingness of your vision, goals and resolutions and anchor them with more burning desire, emotional intensity and physical movement.
2) You have unresolved parts conflict.
Part of you wants to realize your vision, goals and resolution, but other parts don’t.
This can happen because other parts have other conflicting beliefs or fears about what will happen if those visions or goals are realized.
Like, “What if I’m too successful and I can’t handle it”…or “what if xyz people don’t like me anymore once I make this change in my life”.
You have to consciously talk to the different parts of yourself and get in full parts alignment within yourself.
In the interim, if accountability partners help you move towards your vision, goals and resolutions, then use them…as progress will create the momentum and confidence for more progress, and eventually taking off the ‘training wheels’ of accountability buddies.
