Needing outside accountability doesn’t make you a loser.Apr 22, 2022
If I was really passionate about my dreams I wouldn’t need accountability. I would have the motivation and discipline to be like Nike and Just Do It. -me, to me.
I struggled with that mindset FOREVER. That if I didn’t have unlimited motivation and energy to go-go-go-go toward my dream, it meant I must not really care about it. Because people who care about their dreams never get tired of working on them.
It’s complete bullshit.
I naturally need a lot of outside accountability. I’m a quick and fast starter, but I always fizzle out after a while.
That doesn’t mean I don’t care about the thing though. It means chasing dreams is hard, I’m a human being, and after doing hard things for enough time I want to give up. I get overwhelmed. I get tired.
I know and accept this about myself and have set up systems to get out of my own way.
In the very beginning of working toward a dream, when I am riding high on all the excitement and freshness, I set up systems to keep me going when I inevitably start to wane. 9/10 times the system involves working with other humans I respect/care about.
I’m an obliger. I will respect your time and energy more than I respect my own. I will show up for you before I show up for myself.
I get a business partner, join a mastermind, hire a coach, ask my husband to hold me accountable. Whatever it is, I always set up some sort of outside accountability in the beginning to keep myself going.
If you’ve been believing you aren’t capable or deserving of making your dreams come true because you start and stop at things, drop that belief like it’s hot.
You aren’t broken. You aren’t unworthy. You aren’t incapable. You just need a little help with planning and accountability. That one tweak will have you living your dream life in no time.
If you don’t know where to find that accountability, join the next round of the Kindhearted Badass Mastermind, you’ll have accountability built in for as long as Kindhearted Badass exists (and I’m gonna be here for a long time).
