Ecclesiastes 4:9–10 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!
I heard a great quote recently by Joe Girard, “The elevator to success is out of order. You’ll have to use the stairs… one step at a time.”
Have you ever wondered why so few people achieve their big picture goals? I think there are several reasons for this: people get tired, distracted, life gets in the way, people get confused and sometimes internalize their limiting beliefs. Hey, climbing the ladder of success is hard work.
But winners and high achievers do the things that other people aren’t willing to do (executives and leaders — I’m talking to you), and there’s one solution to the problems that keep people from achieving their goals that works with an amazing level of effectiveness.
So what is this secret, you ask? One word… accountability.
Experts estimate that if you have an accountability partner, you’ll be eight times more likely to achieve your goals. Yes, you read that correctly — eight times more likely — that’s HUGE. Choose your accountability partner carefully. You’ll want someone who will support and not sabotage your success. Friends, as well as coaches, make wonderful accountability partners.
