A Goal Shared Is A Goal Achieved: Why And How You Should Tell Other People About Your Goals

Yeah I know it is hard to do, but the results are there waiting for you on the other side of that discomfort.

“You told me you wanted to cross this bridge, so help me God I will make sure you cross it” — Wise words from the accountabili-turtle, he’s always got your back

1. People will remind you about your goal

When you write your goal down, you may forget about it. When you tell other people, they do not forget!

Whaaaaaa? No I am not hiding a cake behind my back right now!

2. You act to preserve your reputation

Picture this. You are sitting all cosy on the couch after a long day at work and the thought pops into your head “I could go to the gym right now”. You look longingly towards your lounge door and imagine putting on your training gear, heading to your car, parking up and then stepping on that treadmill to blast out a good 30 minutes of sweat.

I don’t know about you, but there is definitely evil in my house. It has two names. It goes by “the couch” and “the TV”

3. You can enlist an accountability partner and keep each other moving forward

If you tell lots friends, family members and workmates what your goal is, then the chances are that someone will be working towards the same thing as you, and you can be each other’s accountability partners.

You can do it! Give me a G. O. A. L. GOAL!!!
