We all need it.
Whether its to help us go to the gym, read our bibles, or stay sober from an addiction. Accountability is something that is vital to success in alot of things.
But so many people dont realize that to really have accountability...they have to HONEST and OPEN with the people that they have asked to help them.
If you ask someone to help you get to the push you to eat right and work out...then they ask you "Hey are you doing? Did you stick to your clean eating today?" and your response (as you hide the candy wrapper in your purse) is "Yes! I havent had sugar in two weeks!" Well...then you are just wasting your time...and theirs!
What about someone struggling with something even addiction? Being OPEN is crucial.
Like the husband who has been struggling with a pornography addiction for years...he finally comes clean with his problem, and asks for help. He meets weekly with another guy and they talk about their struggles. But they arent honest with eachother...again, without honesty...whats the point?
I am SO blessed to be a part of a group that is helping Craig Gross (founder of AMAZING site that helps men and women break free from the chains of sexual addiction, pornography, and lust) launch his new book "OPEN."

 Its a book about getting honest.
You can check out the website for the book HERE
"From families to marriages to businesses, on a scale as global as the credit default swap meltdown or as personal as our last session on the Internet, we are suckers for bad ideas. Why do we so often make poor decisions that can lead to life-shattering results? Why do we promise ourselves to do better only to slide back into our old habits?
Why can’t we help ourselves?
The time has come for each of us to become accountable. To experience the freedom, peace of mind, and overwhelming self-confidence that come from living a life free of secrets and lies.
In every area of our lives, it’s time to go beyond self-help . . . it’s time to get accountable."
I don't say this often, but this book is a must read. Every time I speak somewhere or get emails with people asking me how to find healing in particular areas, my response is always "Community." Craig does a beautiful job in articulating how the path to true joy is found in being real, honest, & accountable.
