Resisting Accountability


I do realize that it’s been a couple of weeks or more since I posted a Power300 (life-tips in 300 words or less).  It was my attempt at posting twice a day.  It works sometimes, but sometimes it gets bumped for things like picking up after my toddler, chauffeuring children, editing research papers…you know, flamboyant mommy stuff.

I had a strong thought today about the topic of accountability and how important it is.  When we can share our goals (even the ones in our weak areas) with another, the chances of accomplishing them are so much greater.  In thinking about why a person might not want to be accountable, it occurred to me that they are resisting it because of a deep set fear of “being found out” or of failing altogether.  It could be that the reason is so deeply buried under the surface of their reality, they might not even realize it themselves.

Being a human on this planet, I hope you see that you are not here to go it alone.  We are meant to be in partnerships, in love, in business, in war, in peace, in self-improvement.  For the most part, as a people, we do get this principle…right up to the part where we have to insert our own names and issues.

Here’s the bouillon…

Be accountable to someone…anyone.  Well, no, not just anyone.  Make sure they are patient, trustworthy, kind, and maybe even understand a little about what it is you are trying to do.  You will be thankful you did.  Be well-be beautiful.

What experience have you had with accountability partners or coaches?

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone

Under The Leaves

A few days ago, while raking leaves, my cat loved attacking the rake. I laughed at the amount of joy that Mageara gained from this menial task I needed to finish. I enjoyed the task more because she did. Just as I began to pull in another pile of leaves and the cat jumped at the rake, I took delight in something else! I uncovered little white daisies. They were in full bloom, smiling up at me as if they had the secret to life. I laughed out loud at such a weird find in late fall. And then, of course, I took a picture! Several thoughts came to mind, which I want to share with you.


  1. Well, I have this fabulous life coach and I have to say, it helps to have someone to share your goals with. Not just anyone, like you said, but someone who is trustworthy and non-judgmental. Before I was divinely introduced to my life coach, I had someone that I was accountable to, a spiritual adviser let’s say, and it carried me through about eight years of growing up and doing things differently. After that it was time to move on, to the next level I guess. Hopefully I’m not too damaged and we’re successful. Thank you

    There’s an award over at my place. I know you don’t have alot of spare time, but it’s a fun one.
