If you want to know how to increase your chances of success when it comes accomplishing your goals, as I explain in my 90 day transformation program, the formula for achieving what you want is simple :
Have a vision
Identify and take the necessary small steps
Maintain consistent effort and commitment
Get group support
Four things. Set a goal, and in small, consistent steps, work to reach it. Get support. Repeat.
These are the keys to critical success factors.
This is the quickest way to accomplish, change or create something in your life and luckily it’s not rocket science, so why is it so many guys fail to create what they want?
How many times in your life have you said you wanted to accomplish something, but either you never started or gave up before you finished?
Personally I’ve lost count and this can be a big problem because it can reinforce any beliefs you might have about not being capable of creating the change you want, so you give up trying, whereas achievement propels you to the next level.
As the saying goes “success breeds success”
How to Increase Your Chances of Success – The Missing Link
So what’s the missing link…well in my experience, the thing that most men forget about, no matter the goal is accountability.
Accountability is a critical factor for success.
Successful men know the power of accountability, which is why they set up their lives to ensure they are held accountable for their actions and do three critical things :
They vow never to be the victim or make excuses. They focus on the things they can control and take ownership of their thinking, actions and results.
Associate with “Accountables”. They build relationships with people who appreciate that who they associate with REALLY matters.
They hire coaches who’ll hold them to account, who’ll call them out on their bullshit, help them see past their fears and assist them to figure the steps in the journey.
Successful men know trying to achieve the kind of success they want on their own is difficult, if not impossible.
They know being accountable offers massive leverage. In fact research has proven that building accountability is into your goals, is how you increase your chances of success by 40%.
That’s a huge advantage, an often ignored key to success no matter whether your goal is weight loss, increasing your sales, improving your relationship with your wife etc etc. The more accountable you make yourself the more chance you have of success.
The researchers Patterson, Grenny, et al. in their book Crucial Accountability found having one person keeping you accountable can be helpful, however, they’ll often let you off the hook if you fail to meet your goals.
It’s too easy for both of you to lapse, and to accept each other’s excuses for why you’re not moving forward. The accountability breaks down; neither of you accomplish your goals.
They found it’s best to have a team of at least 4 to 6 people who will hold you accountable. Having this many people supporting you and holding you accountable massively increases your chances of success.
When you make yourself answerable to other people, you can do things you can’t do on our own. Our dislike of letting others down can actually be a powerful motivator.
One way to create this leverage in your life is to set up an accountability group, in which a small bunch of people share their goals, report back on their progress and hold each other accountable. This is a fantastic way of giving yourself the best possible chance of success.
