Are you struggling to stay motivated, stay on track, follow through with your plans, or commit to the things that you know will be good for you?

It might be time to look outside for the help you need!

“The American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) did a study on accountability and found that you have a 65% chance of completing a goal if you commit to someone. And if you have a specific accountability appointment with a person you’ve committed to, you will increase your chance of success by up to 95%.”

That sounds great, right?

By simply having someone who is holding you accountable, you’ll increase your endurance, open yourself up to a broader view of things, and have a readily available source of goal-related support whenever you need it!

When looking into this kind of support, it is important that you find someone you can relate with, and have access to on a regular basis.

Hiring a coach is the most effective tool for making progress towards a goal.  The partnership works best when the coach you hire is someone you trust, is unbiased to everything & everyone in your personal circle of influence, & who will keep you honest and moving on a path you set for yourself.

Here are a few points to consider while trying to find a reliable coach to keep you accountable, cheer you on, and offer a different perspectives whenever you need it.

How to choose a good coach:

  1. Be clear about your goals. The first thing that you need to know is exactly what you’re trying to achieve.  A coach will help you to discover & get clear about what you want to achieve, and the benefits it will afford you!  They’ll also get you focused on the goals that are most important to you.  Many people switch from one goal to the next before completion.  A good coach will help you to understand why that’s happening, and empower you to stay on the track with the goals that are of most priority to you.   A coach will also help you to take a large goal you’re working towards, & break it down into smaller tasks that make it less overwhelming, that you can execute, & help to figure out how you’ll measure your progress!
  2. Find someone you admire and respect, & whose opinion you trust wholeheartedly. You will constantly be hearing feedback on your progress, and you need to know that it’s all being shared in helping you achieve your goals in the long run.   It also helps to work with a coach whose qualities complement yours, but also someone who sees the world in a different way than you do, to offer a fresh perspective and a new take on things when you feel stuck.
  3. Commit to regular check-ins. For it work, you will have to regularly check in with each other to review your progress, identify struggles & roadblocks, and to figure out a way forward. The scheduled check-ins will also act as a deadline for you, so you’ll be motivated to complete your pre-determined take aways for a particular time period.

Working towards important health & life goals can be tough, but when you make the choice to not do it alone, you make it SO MUCH EASIER, and, you dramatically shorten the amount of time to reach your goal too!
