5 Benefits of Accountability

Accountability can greatly benefit those who practice it regularly. Working with trusted partners brings greater success in accomplishing your goals.

Consider how these five features of accountability can benefit you:

1. Living Deliberately

Accountability is an attitude, a willingness, a state of mind. It is a desire to live intentionally—correcting errors and moving forward. It is welcomed by those who want to grow and change.

An accountable person acknowledges that progress often comes less from instant cures and more through a steady journey.

2. Demonstrating Your Integrity

Integrity is completeness and consistency across your entire life. It is a match between what you claim to be and what you do.

Everything you do either confirms or challenges who you really are and who you want to be.

3. Communicating with Appropriate Partners

Healthy friendships can encourage and motivate you toward success. Report your plan and your progress to an accountability partner.

Sometimes you don’t even know what is lacking or needs improvement in your life. You can benefit from an objective partner who is willing to speak the truth to help you accomplish more.

4. Sharing Relevant Details About Your Life

Be strategically transparent and honest about those aspects of your life that relate to your goal or obligation.

  • The goal or obligation you intend to achieve (like spending less time on social media, maintaining purity online, or limiting the places you visit).
  • Your attitudes, beliefs, desires, and decisions surrounding your commitment.
  • Past and present actions and habits that have helped or hindered your progress.
  • Your next steps forward.

5. Achieving Your Commitments

Accountability helps you focus on your commitments and the success to be gained. You can learn from your mistakes and keep focused on your goals and obligations.

Keep Moving Forward!

Fulfill your goals and obligations by the proper use of accountability. Accountability is a blessing that doesn’t need a disguise.
