Accountability Partners Support You in Reaching Your Goals
So far in the Make Over Your Mornings course, we have discovered why we want to make over our mornings, we have given ourselves a motivation to reach our goals, we have written our goals, and divided them into smaller more manageable pieces. The next step is an accountability partner to keep you focused on your goals to be successful (especially in the morning).

Today is day 7 in our discussion of the Make Over Your Mornings course. Have you been able to watch each video and complete the workbook every day? In the lesson today, Crystal shares the importance of accountability partners.
Accountability Partners Increase Your Success
This week, you have spent time writing your goals and focusing your goals, maybe even dreaming of where you would like to be 12 months from now. Yes, it’s possible you can reach your goals on your own, but adding an accountability partner will help you stay focused and they will pick you up if you fall.
It may be hard for you to accept having an accountability partner. Maybe you don’t think you need one. I find sharing with an accountability partner to be difficult. I absolutely believe in my heart that I can do it and do it all by myself. Remember, you accountability partner will also help support you and cheer you on when you fail or get tired. Your partner can be your personal cheerleader, they won’t be judging you.
You can also make your accountability partner a mutual accountability relationship. It’s not just you being accountable to another person, it’s a team effort. You both work together and you can both be successful.
Choosing an Accountability Partner
You may find it difficult to choose an accountability partner. You need a person that you trust, and that will support you. It could be your spouse or your sister or even your child. Crystal suggested you could use social media like facebook and share with your facebook friends your goals and updates.
Crystal also mentioned you might have more than one accountability partner. You might have different friends that you feel are supportive in different ways.
What areas of your life do you need an accountability partner? How would having an accountability partner help you in this area? Second, you also need to select a partner. You want to select the right person. Consider their special abilities and if they are the right person to be your partner.
Who will be the best accountability partner for you? What goals will you ask them to help you focus on?
