Is it okay to ask for help?

We are a few weeks into the new year, and old and potentially bad habits may have already come back to you. How are you going with your goals?

There is nothing wrong with calling for help. In fact, this is one of the best ways to making sure you do achieve your goals.

The American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) did a study on accountability and have put together the following statistics:

The probability of completing a goal if:
 You have an idea or a goal: 10%
 You consciously decide you will do it: 25%
 You decide when you will do it: 40%
 You plan how you will do it: 50%
 You commit to someone you will do it: 65%
 You have a specific accountability appointment with a person you’ve committed to: 95%

So, here you can see that just having a goal is not enough. As we have previously stated, it is important to plan on how you will do it, and when you will be doing it; but the biggest thing that improves the chances of success is committing to someone and being accountable to them.

Now that you know this, what are you going to do to achieve your goals?

If you have some business and financial goals you want to achieve, and you need help, please do not hesitate to contact us. We have some great accountability programs for business and personal goals.
