Accountability….what a nasty little word….but without it many of us rarely make desired changes. Why? We are creatures of habit and unless the ship is sinking, our habits will be with us until we are food for worms.
That being said, having someone hold the mirror will, at least, give us a chance. Holding the mirror is not advice; it's a reflection of our activities and our behavior. It will help answer this question for us:
Are we doing the things we should be doing in order to get the things we say we want?
(Word to the wise: Don’t pick a mirror holder that doesn’t have what it takes to be honest.)
