Gratitude for accountability partners. How accountability partners can accelerate your success.

Updated: Jul 30, 2023



First things first... Why should you care?

Our emotional state dictates the quality of our life. The 30 Days of Positivity Challenge is a daily personal challenge designed to condition the mind and body to maintain a positive emotional state. Our mindset contributes to 80% of our success. So, this challenge forces you to reprogram your mindset for success. When we're in a good mood and have a positive mindset, the probability of us being more productive, having better relationships, and making more money goes up. On the other hand, when we're in a bad mood and have a negative mindset, the opposite tends to occur.

Imagine living in a mansion but you're always upset, stressed, anxious, or sad. On the other hand, imagine living in a townhouse but you're always peaceful and happy. Your quality of life has everything to do with how you feel about yourself and the world around you. Your focus becomes your future. So, focus on nurturing a positive emotional state. Our feelings give us clues about the state of our emotions and environment, and tell us if we're progressing in the right direction. Progress equals growth. This challenge helps you to grow positive feelings to attract positive people and things into your life.

Let's get started with today's challenge!

Let's Get To The Point

Finding a personal or business coach is one of the best ways to hold yourself accountable for the results you want to see in your life. Another way is to share your desires and decisions with the people closest to you and request that they hold you accountable. However, you may want to ensure they have the highest levels of confidentiality and unbiased feedback when you're sharing your deepest desires and decisions with them. Your challenge today is to answer this question: Who's in your circle of accountability?

Donnie Thomas:

Hey everybody. So today is day 23 of my 30 days of positivity challenge. And today I'm really grateful for accountability. Accountability partners are key in life. I never forget when before I bought my first investment property, one of my accountability partners was somebody I didn't even know. I met him at a pool party and he was a real estate investor. And during that pool party, we were just having all kinds of conversations. Did not know him from a can of paint. I was telling him about how I bought my first house and I had a car and I was paying X, Y, and Z for the car. A nice job and all these things. And he checked me and he said, "Okay, you got a house, that's great. You got a car, a nice job, but why are spending a thousand dollars a month for a car when that could be revenue from a property?

Donnie Thomas:

And I said, "Okay, well, tell me a little bit more about that." And I remember us talking for hours about the benefits of sacrifice and the benefits of home ownership from an investment standpoint. Literally after that, I sold my car and I went for a year and a half without a car based on that conversation. But again, didn't know him from a can of paint. And later I bought my first investment property and my investment property was making me a thousand dollars per month versus me spending a thousand dollars per month on a vehicle that depreciated as soon as I drove it off the lot. That person became a very dear friend of mine.

Donnie Thomas:

But I say all that to say accountability is extremely important because during that discussion he held me accountable for everything that I was saying in terms of my personal development, my financial development. And throughout the process, he held me accountable, which I probably would not have taken certain steps as fast as I have if it were not for some of those initial conversations. Sometimes we have to learn to accept accountability from people who don't even know us, because those are sometimes the people that can give us that perspective, that will give you the perspective that nobody around you that's close to you is willing to tell you because they don't want to offend you. They don't want to hurt your feelings or to be rude. And there's some people who would give you their opinion and they'll disguise it as love, but it just comes off rude and jarring and you still don't even follow it anyway.

Donnie Thomas:

So accountability is very beautiful. Don't be afraid of it. Embrace it. Learn to listen to other people's perspectives and if it aligns with your values, don't be afraid to try it out.

Donnie Thomas:

Have a good one. Peace.
