What is the secret to success?

What is one of the secrets to achieving success in your health and fitness goals?

Having accountability will transform your journey and get you the results you want.

Before you even make any changes, just by stating your goal decisively and sharing that goal with someone else will boost your chances of success. Having that mind-set of knowing exactly what you want and being confident you can achieve it will get your body and mind set for your journey.

Having someone working with you is like having your own personal cheerleader. They will give you encouragement, share with you their struggles they overcame so you know you are not alone. They will help you identify where you have gone off track and get you back where you need to be. You can talk over any questions you have, any worries or any ideas so you are taking the guess work out of your actions. Between you, you can work out where you need to get to, what you need to do to get there, how you can do this and what works best for you.

You are more likely to keep going if you are accountable to someone else. If it was just you, you may miss a workout if you were a bit tired but knowing someone else is invested in you will give you that push to get those trainers on. If you really want some chocolate but know you should have something that nourishes you instead, knowing you have someone who wants you to be the best you can be and meet your goals will help you resist.

There are a few ways you can get accountability. You may choose to set up a healthy eating group with friends so you can keep each other accountable and share recipes and successes. You may find a friend to go to the gym with so you both are more likely to make that session as you don’t want to let the other person down.

Accountability is one reason I love being a health coach – I know how hard it can be do try to change on your own, how hard it can be to keep going when motivation is low. I give my clients small steps and keep them accountable. I support and encourage and help people believe they have the power to change.
