Who Are You Accountable To?
Wouldn’t it be nice to do whatever you want to do whenever you want to, and with whomever you wanted and wherever!
Life would be nice right? However, we all know it doesn’t work that way. Especially for those who are truly successful. They are usually the most accountable people. We all have to answer to someone and whether we like it or not, this is what keeps us on the straight and narrow. This also protects us from falling into a ditch.
Many of us want our freedom, but while freedom is a great concept, many forget that it comes with great responsibility. Freedom equals responsibility. It is not what some think it is – having no one to answer to. When you look at very successful people, they’ve become slaves to their schedules by choice, because they know that their schedule is what keeps them free.
Free to prioritize what is most important in their lives. Do you walk in freedom or is your time wasted daily without direction. Accountability brings direction and that’s why you need to be accountable to someone.
Successful people don’t have to do the things that waste their time but rather have learned the importance and value of each minute they can spend being productive. They’ll hire others to do what wastes their time so they can spend more time on what really matters. But this wouldn’t happen if they weren’t accountable to someone and to their schedule in the first place.
Success cannot happen in a vacuum, so you’ll have to be accountable to someone.
Choose your accountability partner carefully. It cannot be your wife or best friend, because they both tend to give you grace in most cases.
If you’re accountable to no one you’re not living responsibly and your results will show it.
If you want to be truly successful find an accountability partner in the right areas like your spiritual life or your finances. Not simply do you need help, but you need to stay on point and prioritize your life so you can finish your race with good success.
