About Taking Action and Accountability Partners

Happy Fantastic Friday! Before you take off for the weekend, I wanted to give you something, so I wrote this for you. I hope you like it!

With the year still so young, lots of us still have our attention on defining goals and planning for the future. Some are making a single plan for 2014 and others are immersed in expansive five-year plans. It can be so exciting and motivating to envision our fantastic futures that we get lost in that space, planning, revising and optimizing tomorrow. For some it can be a little daunting or even down right frightening to see that bit of the unknown and the uncertain sprawled before us on paper or across our computer screen. Whether you are at either end of this spectrum or like me, depending on the goal, you pendulate someplace in between, it is crucial to your success to remember that even with the most empowered and abundant mindset the only impact we have on our future is through the ACTIONS WE TAKE IN THE PRESENT.
Your Future

With that said, I encourage you to cross that last “t” and dot the last “i” in your plans for this year and then take some action toward making that thing that you most want in your life happen – now.
By the way, I know that having an accountability partner can really help you keep up your motivation and your momentum so you achieve your goals at a higher rate and often at a much faster past. Your accountability partner is simply someone to share your goals with, to remind you to keep stepping and who will not let you get away with selling yourself short! Make It Happen.

Who is the accountability partner that you rely on, to simultaneously give you a back-pat of encouragement and a gentle kick in the rear? If you don’t have one and would like to have one, we should talk. Call me at +49 (0)176 556 19 112.

Wishing you a Fantastic Friday and grace for today!

  1. I have big plans for 2014 Denise! My theme for the year is CHANGE and GROWTH. There are a few areas I still need to plan around so thanks for the reminder. Can’t wait to see were this year leads us.

  2. Jill Place says:

    Gotta say this format is MUCH better and more readable than in the past. And I’m with you about sharing goals. Will do with my Mastermind group this week.

  3. Aly Pain says:

    Totally love your new format, and the new banner too! Well done Denise.
    I agree that many changes require a partner in crime to be accountable to, to hold me to a standard I don’t always see or believe is possible. They don’t buy my BS no matter how much I am selling it!!

    • Thank you, Aly! I appreciate feedback to help make my blog easier to read and more enjoyable. A note of thanks on this to Jennifer Bourn, web design and branding expert and owner of Bourn Creative, a strategic web design and branding agency, for pointing out that the previous format was difficult and strenuous to read.

      And yes, a good accountability partner is totally immune to our BS and willing to gently rub our nose in it, so we learn not to go that route any more 🙂

  4. Wendi Kelly says:

    I count on my mastermind group for weekly accountability, a place where I can be vulnerable and share, and bounce off new ideas and brainstorm. I love my mastermind group!

  5. WooHoo! Love the change to the formatting! Much easier to read 🙂 One note …[dbg: edit; The name and link error noted has been corrected] THANKS for the shout out!

    Action is key! Like the others, a mastermind group and accountability buddy have helped me greatly.
