The Audit Of Your Life

By Evan Sanders

A few years ago, I had a teacher give us a small speech right before we left for the holidays.

One piece however, truly stuck out to me.

He told us that we must all "accept our condition" if we are going to move forward with our lives.

What did he mean?

He meant that if you can see who you are right now in full honesty, you can move forward in becoming who you want to be.

If you take it a few steps further, you have to look at your entire life in depth and understand where you can make improvements.

The other incredibly important part of this is being honest with yourself about where you're at.

Why is it so important to do this?

It becomes the solid foundation that you can build your new life upon.

Going through this process of self reflection allows you to create a new life and ditch the old one.

When you can stop avoiding the past and accept yourself for who you truly are, you then are able to move forward into creating a beautiful new future. But if you leave the past a mess, you're asking for serious trouble.

So how do we actually do this audit in real terms?

The best way of making this happen is to get a massive piece of paper and map out exactly where you are right now.

When you go through this process it really gives you great visual experience of what's going on in your life and how you need to reorganize everything.

When you audit your life, you give yourself the ability to go, "Okay, where do I want to be? What do I see for myself?"

And lastly, you have to envision as far as you can down the line and start working a plan backwards from there.

If you can do this piece by piece, you have created battle plans to work with.

This will make you grounded in the future as you know what you are heading towards and what you want with your life.

Another beneficial aspect to doing this process is that you begin to figure out what you don't know and what you do know. Knowing both of these aspects of your life is going to help you move forward into the future as well.

So take some time to understand the landscape and begin to invest in yourself so you can start to move forward in this life.

To help you get from where you are now to where you need to be in the future.

All of this is pure magic.
