The Benefits of Accountability: How Following in Your Mentor’s Footsteps Can Lead You To Success and Fulfillment

Adam Jablin has first hand experience for it all when it comes to business. Beyond finding success for himself, he often explores the ins and outs of how to help others stay committed to their goals, and helps them find their own version of success. 

Although from the outside Adam makes success look effortless, he will actually be the first to admit that there are a few key obstacles that people often face after committing themselves to any goal. 

“I believe the main obstacles we face when committing to a goal are both fear and making a decision. Fear of the outcome and that we won’t get what we set our minds to all manifests into a lack of a real decision to be all in!” Adam outlines. 

What Adam has found when working with his own clients is that the actual elements holding them back from finding consistent success with their habits and their goals are often manifestations of underlying fear. Adam calls these lies beneath the level of consciousness  – these lies can range from not believing you are good enough, not believing you are worth it, or not believing you can obtain goals within your grasp. 

“Success requires discipline, dedication, consistency and effort. I revisit my goals daily, reading them outloud – it’s essential! But success and fulfillment are two different things. I have very successful clients that are not happy, not fulfilled—that’s an inside job,” Adam explains. 

Staying committed to your goals can seem like a daunting task – luckily, Adam has been able to break it down into four key methods. The first is to start small – by doing something every day to help build your habit, you can break it down into manageable pieces that are less daunting. 

Secondly, Adam recommends starting and keeping track of your progress through a “streak” – the motivation to keep the pattern going everyday is often enough to pull yourself into a task that you may otherwise neglect. 

Third, Adam recommends accountability. For his clients, this means sharing their progress, or lack thereof, with Adam himself. If you are working towards goals on your own, this method can still be used – just pick one person to write your goals to that will keep you committed and accountable. When you fear letting someone else down, you will have more motivation to move forward.

“With my clients, I have daily check-ins and I take accurate notes of where they are at. I don’t force a premature outcome in my mind. I allow the process to happen. We build the building one brick at a time,” Adam remarks. 

Lastly, and most importantly, Adam recommends rest and recovery time. 

“You need to know when it’s time to take your foot off the gas, although to be honest, I’m still working on that one. Discipline is one of my strongest assets. After my faith and my belief, my discipline is what keeps me on track,” Adam says. 

For Adam, he finds the most helpful method to create a successful habit is to do his research by reading everything available on what he wants to accomplish. 

“I try to study the ones that came before me and emulate them, while leaving enough space to breathe and be myself,” Adam says. 

As someone who serves the role as mentor to many of his clients, it’s no surprise that Adam has many following in his footsteps. He admits that even though he finds himself in the role of mentor, it can be difficult to stay motivated and inspired when he is having an off day. With so many depending on him, however, he always finds a way to power through. 

“I don’t listen to that voice in my head. That voice wants to be a victim or take it easy. But, it’s just a thought! There are miracles on the other side of not listening to that voice,” Adam explains.
