Accountability is more than a buzzword.
Accountability is the bedrock upon which trust is built. Accountability is the obligation where a person takes ownership of their actions, decisions, and their consequences. When accountability becomes ingrained in your makeup, transparency and reliability follow.
What happens when it falters? I have seen nurses buy into masterclasses, courses, and memberships only to never attend. What happens? People get busy, life happens, people forget, lose interest. Call it what you want, but the discipline to follow through gets lost for whatever reason.
Perhaps, we aren’t holding ourselves accountable.
There is so much information available on business building in today’s market. So much education and information can be consumed through courses, classes, podcasts, memberships, E-groups, books, and so on. We carry all this potential around in our phones, yet we find ourselves scrolling the socials. We can be handed the recipe, the blueprint and even handheld through private mentorship communities. However, the responsibility and the accountability comes down to your follow through. You must be able to follow through the execution of the building process.
Hold yourself accountable, reflect on the decisions you are making. Are you making decisions based on other people’s expectations? Are you making decisions based out of fear? Are you saying yes to things that aren’t serving you in the long run? Check in with yourself. Are you finding procrastination is creeping in?
Sometimes procrastination is the result of doing too much too fast. This can result in burnout. Pace yourself. Nurture your soul with adequate sleep, proper nutrition, exercise/activity and so on.
Business building is a balance. You are learning a lot of new skills. It can be exhausting. When you get off balance, you can become flustered and overwhelmed. The thought of accomplishing anything becomes cluttered with the noise of society. Take a break. You are allowed! In fact, you may notice that when you return, you feel refreshed and full of ideas that just flow.
Defining clear goals and achieving them through prioritization will help keep you on track. When you instill accountability into your daily life, the rewards can be numerous and impactful.
Self-accountability in business building can transcend into personal growth and development and that is when you own your story.
