What does it mean to be Accountable?
What I say next might surprise you.
Accountability starts with you! Being in a community that is loving, welcoming and supportive is an amazing thing but in order for it to work, you have to show up. You have to be willing to put in the effort. The more you put into an accountability group the more you will get out.
You don’t enter a group and from that day on we will bug you as to why you haven’t worked out every day and message and email and call etc. No, we are not here to annoy you we are here to support you and so if you check in each day saying ‘ hey team I worked out today and it was great’ we know what you have been doing. Maybe you will check-in and say ‘Hey team I worked out today and it turns out I hate Pilates but I powered through and did it anyway.’ Or maybe you will say ‘Hey team I didn’t work out today I had no motivation can you help me’ Now in all these situations we can respond encourage and help you. If you are checking into the group and then suddenly we don’t hear from you in a week then yes we will check in to see if there is something we can do to help you.
Accountability groups are not to make you feel guilty or pressured but in fact to do the opposite to help you feel encouraged and know that you are not in it alone because we are all on our journey and this community we are building is going to lift you up and cheer you on and help you get the results you want.
