A Foolproof Way to Increase Your Attention in Reaching Your Goals

a woman thinking in the morningHi there, this post comes from Erin Power, director of training at the Basic Health Training Institute. Erin plans to stick regularly to share tips, tools, and strategies that have been used by her clients, students, and graduates over the past decade about motivating, inspiring, and achieving goals. Enjoy!

You probably saw the stats. Up to 92% of people never find satisfaction in achieving their goals. But it doesn't have to be that way.

Maybe your goal is to stick to a six-hour eating window. Or improve the quality of your sleep. Or stop eating industrial oils.

All wonderful goals.

But without going the right way, you will join the ranks of the losers as fast as you can say metabolic flexibility.

Why accountability is important

You may be telling yourself, "I've never been poisoned with sugar," or "these extra 40 pounds just love it so much." While those statements may have been true for you, there is a big difference between those who achieve their goals (e.g. get out of diabetes or gain weight) and those who don't.

And the same accountability.

Personally, I like to teach my clients to be accountable for their actions, and the reliance on me to be held accountable. I provide education and support, but when it comes to accountability, it's best to be your own attorney. This means that you will take over your circumstances by clarifying your goals – and the reasons why you want to achieve those goals. There is a lot of research behind this approach as well.

In 1977, a sociologist, Albert Bandura proposed a concept he called self-help. It is the idea that if people believe in changing their culture, they will be very successful in doing so. Dozens of studies have been published on the basis of the topic, including one that examines the effect of self-esteem on weight loss. During the study, weight loss subjects were assigned to high or low suicide groups who were told to follow a weight loss program under the self-control condition. As you might have guessed, the researchers found that the high self-efficacy group lost a lot more weight than their peers of lower quality.

Another way to be accountable is to have a partner – the same person, or similar goals, as your own. Together, you promise to take the necessary steps to embrace new behaviors, to check each other regularly and to hold each other accountable. It could be a form of gym membership, someone you work with for lunch, or an online group focusing on the extraordinary fast.

I am not alone in this idea.

A study by a professor of psychology at the Dominican University of California, Dr. For Gail Matthews, participants wrote down their goals, and then half of the group were asked to send a regular report to a friend. The results showed that the accountability group was 76.7% more successful in achieving their goals than the team that doesn't.

I am actually using this partner in the same account to make sure I reach 5:00 a.m. thank you for repetition and consideration. We called together at 5:15 each morning to see if we were awake and didn't control the subject button (we also promised to go to bed no later than 9:30 pm so we wouldn't fall asleep). Because we have the same goal, it works beautifully.

My 5th plan of accountability

This is a tool you can use to improve accountability at both the individual and the peer level. Create your plan by responding to five questions:

What is your personal goal?

Instead of trying to: “skip the bananas and yogurt and break the fast-food protein-rich foods”, you say in great detail, “Tomorrow my fast-food, I will fall for three. an egg and one of these sausages I found in the farmers market. It will make it easier for you to know if and when you have achieved your goal. As I mentioned above, you can increase your accountability by partnering with someone who has the same goals as you. (You may think it sounds strange to have breakfast with a couple, but in the name of achieving your health goals, why not?)

What habits will you enter?

To be successful, you must identify the actions you will take – ask yourself what you are doing and when. Using the example above, you need to know:

  • the time you want to have breakfast
  • if you need to set up your alarm device 15 minutes in advance to have time to prepare
  • if you need to run to the store when you leave work tonight to pick up eggs or butter
  • how to track your progress with this goal.

How do you evaluate your progress?

Regularly contact yourself. Using a tracking program or journal is a great way to monitor your progress. These methods make it easy for you to see if you can match your actions, along with the practice of recording your new behavior helps you feel successful when working toward your goals. If you are working with a partner in the same account, you can still – and should – keep track of your progress, but it is also important to schedule regular appointments with each other.

What is your reason?

You may find that you are not conforming to your actions as you wish. That's where your reasons come in. Really thinking about why this purpose is for you because these things can help strengthen your actions. It can also make you realize that your goal is not realistic – or not as important as you thought. Use the Whyx5 Model to help unlock your real purpose for change.

What are the consequences of not achieving your goal?

Changing behavior can be difficult, but too often without doing anything – or compromising your efforts – will end up hardening in the future. See how you feel if you are not responsible for yourself. Instead, how will you feel if you do?

How to Develop an Accountability Plan

I can't say enough. One of the most important differences between people achieving their goals and those that are not is accountability. Being accountable for your actions is key if you want to succeed. And partners with someone with similar goals are the same as the protein fruits that contain pasta. What goals did you try to achieve? Create your accountability plan with the following five steps:

  1. Find out your goals
  2. Identify your new habits
  3. Come in regularly
  4. Remember why it is important
  5. Consider the results
