When you are in business for yourself who do you turn to when you need support or want to celebrate?
It is not always easy to share with a friend, employee, or even your spouse. They may not get where you are coming from, especially if they aren’t self-employed.
Some people don’t want to hear about your success – in fact, they may actually be jealous of your success.
So, what is a self-employed business owner to do?
I have found great value in having one or more Personal Accountability Partners!
You may be wondering what is a Personal Accountability Partner. In fact, you may be thinking “I have heard of mentors before but a Personal Accountability Partner – I don’t need another mother holding me accountable.”
That’s the beauty of a Personal Accountability Partner, they aren’t your mother! They are there to encourage and offer suggestions. It is up to me and you what we choose to be accountable for.
Here is what I mean by a Personal Accountability Partner:
- They are someone who I can trust.
- They are someone who will meet with me regularly.
- They will provide an equal energy exchange – meaning they will provide and receive support equally.
- They are willing and able to joyfully celebrate my successes with me.
- They also offer suggestions in using the 11 Energy Generating tools that are part of the Chi-To-Be! system shared in Chi-To-Be! Achieving Your Ulitmate B-All by Stacey Hall.
When I meet with my accountability partner I share my goal that I am asking for support with and also let them know what I have already done. They then offer suggestions that may move me closer to the fulfillment of my goal. Again, it is up to me to decide what I choose to take and actually implement.
The whole point of having goals and an accountability partner is to succeed. And what better way to celebrate a success than with my Accountability Partner. Especially because many times, my celebrations of success are directly related to goals my Accountability Partner supported me with during a call! I love that I am able to celebrate my success and accomplishments with them.
I so appreciate that the Chi-To-Be! system of Accountability Partnerships provides a way that I am able to give and receive support in such a win-win way.
As a Certified Chi-To-Be! coach I offer coaching to clients on incorporating the Chi-To-Be! system into their lives and businesses. Please send me an email message to PathwaysToHarmony@gmail.com if you are interested in exploring coaching options.
