We’ve all heard that if you want to meet your goals or achieve something you really want, you need “accountability.”
Strangely enough, someone from the past and barely knew, has offered to help me!
I am Grateful. 🙂
Monday evening, I went out to dinner with someone who I knew of back in high school, but I never socialized or knew anything about him. His name is Mike. We were never in the same circle of friends. However, he is close to one of my girlfriends, Marianne. She also went to same high school and they both work in the field of Real Estate. During her 4oth Birthday party last month, he and I met for the first time since school.
It’s funny how the universe works people in and out of your life.
In conversations with Mike, I got to know who he is. He is smart and really ambitious when it comes to his success. Our friend Marianne said that he is one of their biggest realtor in their office and he’s really good at what he does. The way he spoke, I felt how passionate he is about his work, where he is headed and what he wants to achieve. It really inspired me.
I shared with him about my life quest, what I was not sure on what I wanted to do and how I want success too, but I haven’t experience the feeling of “How BAD do I really what it?” sensation. He agreed that I was all over the place. I have so many ideas but not one solid foundation to start with.
We went through all the criteria…
What’s your Why?
What holds you back?
What are you goals?
If it’s not in writing, it doesn’t exist!
I expressed to him, I don’t know how to set goals. I’ve never really had a need to set goals in the past. I’ve pretty much just lived my life by the seat of my pants. Day in. Day out. I had my mom to support me and be my cushion to fall back on. Don’t get me wrong. I worked jobs to make some living and not completely rely on her, but I didn’t push myself harder to achieve more. Which is why I struggle today. I had no ambition for anything before. I was very comfortable with life. Till NOW!
By the the end of dinner, it came down to being accountable and having someone to help me with it. I told him about programs I’ve invested in to help me find my way.
Have you heard of the “Abundance Factor” movie?
Have you heard of Riley Dayne?
If you have AWWWWESOME SAAAAAUCE! If you haven’t YOU MUST WATCH. If you liked or loved the movie “The Secret”, then you will enjoy this one also.
I bought Riley Dayne’s program “Abundance University” back in February. As I stated in my last post, Owning Your Truth, the procrastinator that I am, I had started the program but then stopped.
Same with“B-School“ by Marie Forley. I bought that one two years ago and I still haven’t worked on the program.
I have great intentions to want to move ahead, I just need that spark to ignite the momentum and consistency behind it.
Mike said he understood my emotional struggles with myself and was very empathetic in what I’m going through. He has faced and still faces at times, the ups and downs and pushing through the barriers that holds us back.
He has offered to be my accountability person. He is holding me accountable to work on these programs, which I started today, and let him know when I’m done with every module I complete. I must also be accountable on the days when I can not complete tasks and tell him why I couldn’t get it done.
This encounter with Mike, in the most unforeseen moment, has made me an even bigger believer in what you ask from the universe you will receive.
Someone once asked him..
Do you want to be SAFE or GREAT?
He said ever since that question he knew he wanted to be “Great”. It was a very powerful question. Like him…
I WANT TO BE GREAT!
What do you want to be?
Who holds you accountable?
I’d love to hear from you.
