As we talk about how to be successful in nutrition in this series, we are examining all the ways that people fail in their nutrition journey. There are many ways to fail, but today’s topic is the way that I frequently find trips people up!
Today we are talking about a lack of accountability. You see, accountability is key! Ultimately, it would be wonderful if we could be accountable to our goals and dreams, however, this is not something that we as humans are good at. Instead, we often do best when we have someone else that we are working to hold a standard for!
No one wants to explain to their accountability partner that they failed or they didn’t do what they said they would do. For that reason, we tend to do well with having someone to answer. However, you should not just have any Tom, Dick or Harry as your accountability partner, you should have someone that meets the following characteristics:
- Someone important to you
- Someone that can say what you NEED to hear (not what you WANT to hear)
- Someone that understands your goals and your “why”
- Someone that understands what the nutrition plan is
You see, just having any person to be “accountable” to doesn’t work. You need that person to truly hold you to your daily tasks to be successful. This person needs to be someone that can call you on your mistakes and help you to see how you can be better in the future.
By having this person, you are setting yourself up for long term success! This person can help you to make the changes that you need most to be able to reach your goals! This person could be a parent, significant other, co-worker, friend, workout buddy, child or any other close relationship that you have.
Additionally, you can use a coach! You see, a coach is going to be able to sift through all of the noise for you. They will be there to answer your questions, solve problems with you and help you to get what you need most!
