I'm self motivated and have never needed to be driven by others to perform my best.  Motivations Speakers, fellow Realtors and other real estate groups have always been a part of my career and feed the Psyche.  I strongly encourage others to get an accountability partner as self motivation works for a very small percentage of people.

For several years I belonged to a TIPS groups which was a generic version of BNI.  I also started a small Mastermind group with non-real estate industries. Both were very effective in generating business.

Yes!  I love Active Rain, Relylocal and I meet with other agents in my area that are like me (independent) and we encourage one another.  

Having said that ... I have always been self-motivated and a go-getter without anyone prodding me on.

I am self motivated and keep myself on track most of the time. Also, I am part of an online "tribe" of like minded bloggers/social media users so it is fairly easy to keep the momentum going without the need for accountability.

That sounds like a support group LOL ... do they also provide you with a blanky and milky when you get stressed out?

But to answer your question, I was coached by Floyd Wickman about 17 years ago and listen to Tom Ferry almost daily but am not coached by them.

Thank you all for the feedback and great comments. It seems there are 2 very different sides on this topic, Yes and No, nothing really in between.  I run an accountability group for my office and have another accountability partner when it comes to work.  And my children hold me accountable at home daily.
