So then, how do you choose an accountability partner? There are several different types, but generally you want to choose someone you know will have your back. Some people choose their friends or family; usually someone close to them. There are a few cons to choosing someone close to you, however. Their constructive criticisms may be taken personally. They may also say something that discourages you more than actually reinforces your motivation. Another potential downside is that you may feel uncomfortable sharing certain insecurities. An independent partner accepts all your emotions.
This is why I recommend forming an accountability partnership with someone who is an unbiased figure in your life. When you search online, you’ll find with different skill sets that are better suitable for your needs. With a personal friend or family member, you may have goals that they have no experience in, so their support might be lacking. With a partner who specializes in weight loss, financials, or other goals you need to achieve, they will know exactly how to work with you.
