Accountability with Yourself
When clients ask how I’ve made such transformational changes in my life in seemingly such a short period of time, I always tell them- I took accountability. For example, take my fitness journey. On paper, my lifestyle may not seem to support having a consistent fitness journey. I run a business, I have two small children, I'm a wife and have to manage a household. I could easily let those very legitimate reasons stop me from being consistent with my workouts.
However, I know that I made a promise, a commitment to myself, to be healthier. Not just because my wedding is less than two months away (!), but because I owed it to myself. I owe it to myself to push my boundaries, stop making excuses, and adopt a healthier lifestyle that would make me a better mom, wife and all around D’Ionna.
That's taking accountability. Instead of shifting the blame to taking care of my kids, my family, my business- things that aren’t going to change, I focused on what I could change. I managed my time so that I can workout when the kids are in school. I discussed having a healthier diet with the whole family so it becomes a part of everyone’s lifestyle, which makes it easier for me to stick to.
Accountability isn’t about absolving yourself of your responsibility and blaming others. It’s a gift you give to yourself to shift a negative into a positive. When you experience something you don’t like, change it. But if you can’t change it, change yourself. Take accountability.
