The 4 B’s: A Powerful Accountability Practice for the Four Main Areas of Your Life

As we are just a few weeks into the New Year and many are making resolutions and setting intentions for 2021, I’d like to share a personal accountability practice that I have been doing for many years.

An accountability practice is something that keeps you focused and committed to your goals. Many successful individuals find that having a system to keep them accountable is a key part of their success.

I call my accountability system The 4 B’s, and they represent the four main areas of my life that I seek to maintain and improve to ensure that I keep evolving and becoming a better version of myself every day, one step at a time.

The 4 B’s Are:

  • Body: My physical health
  • Being: My spiritual health
  • Bonds: The health of my relationships
  • Business: My financial health and abundance in my work

Body

Practices to improve your Body can include eating a healthy diet, doing some form of exercise, getting a massage, doing some form of physical work, yoga, etc.

Being

Practices to nurture your Being can include meditation, yoga, prayer, taking a walk in nature, going to your church, synagogue, temple, etc., or any other practice or ritual that increases your spiritual connection.

Bonds

Activities to strengthen your Bonds may include calling an old friend on the phone, spending time with your family, attending a social event, doing something to help a loved one, co-worker, or friend, among many other actions.

Business

Actions to improve your Business may include creating new content, learning a new skill, taking a course, or anything you do that is working on your business or working in your business.

Here is a sample chart filled out for one week:

The simple chart below has a space for each B for each day of the week. I score myself as either a “0”, a “.5”, or a “1” for each category depending on whether I did something that day to cultivate each area.

At the end of the week, I add up each daily tally to get the weekly score. This has been a powerful practice that shows me exactly where I may be neglected an area of my life so that I can take measures to rectify it.

Below I’ve created a link where you can download the blank 4 B’s sheets to start your own practice.

Good luck and let me know how it goes for you!

The Energetics of Voting

What is the connection between voting and energy?

And to what extent does our single vote impact our world?

Things are heating up as we approach this highly polarizing U.S. election. Many are and will be voting for their candidate of choice, while a significant portion of the public doesn’t vote at all. Unfortunately, in this political system that is often less than fair and transparent, we may feel like our voice and our vote doesn’t matter.

However, it is important that we keep in mind that the universe is always receiving our energetic “vote” and giving us back the reality we are choosing with our thoughts, beliefs, and actions.

While I highly encourage everyone to vote in elections, the physical act of going to the ballot box and checking the box next to a certain person’s name may actually be the least powerful method of voting at our disposal. 

Voting is one way that we can express our convictions and values, but there are also many other ways.  You could even say that every moment of every day we are “voting” as to who we are and what world we choose to live in by where we put our energy.

However you vote, be sure to do with full consciousness of what exactly you are putting your energy and consent behind.

I am honored and proud to have the right to vote, and this week I exercised that right.  And yes I am going to trust our US Post office to deliver my choice!

Even more, I trust in a higher power to likewise always deliver my vote exactly where it needs to go.
