This has been a season where a lot of amazing things are going on in my life.
- New book projects
- Amazing client results.
- Fun trips.
However, I’ve been failing in one area of my life and failing badly.
Going to the Gym
I have NOT been exercising like I should.
Although I know WHY I need to exercise and I know HOW to exercise, I just haven’t been doing it.
I don’t need to buy a book detailing the health benefits of exercising. I don’t need step-by-step instructions on how to do the exercises.
I simply need to do it. But, I’m not doing it. Ugh.
I needed a change and what I decided to do was to join our local gym. I put skin in the game. By investing in my gym, I can attend their classes and use their equipment.
And guess what? I just got back from the gym tonight. I did it. I went and worked out.
Why? Because I invested.
The Need for Accountability
Sometimes we know what we need to do and why we need to do it, but we need more accountability to take action.
Some of my Author Audience Academy members join simply for the accountability.
We have weekly accountability where I personally will check in with you at the end of the week on your goals. We also have writing sessions every month where we meet for 2 hours and write together.
By investing, you have skin in the game. You show up. You start seeing results.
So, if you’re ready to take the next step in your writing career, I’d love for you to join us at www.authoraudienceacademy.com.
We are currently closed to new members but will re-open soon. So, be ready.
In the meantime, I also have a few one-on-one coaching spots open. I’ll warn you. It isn’t cheap to invest in one-on-one coaching. But, if you’re interested, you can find out more here: www.shelleyhitz.com/coaching
By the way, all I did was walk on the treadmill tonight at a brisk pace. But, just the act of going to the gym and getting a workout felt so good. What action step do you need to take today?
