The Audit Of Your Life

By Evan Sanders

A few years ago, one of my teachers gave us a Holiday pep talk before we left class and put forth a few pieces of information that I never forgot.

One piece however, truly stuck out to me.

He said that we must first accept who we are if we are going to make changes in 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 important part is to see them as they are and not how you think they should have been.

Why is it so important to do this?

All of the truth and honesty is exactly what you need to build a solid 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?

My favorite way of doing this is getting on a huge chalkboard and drawing the whole thing out in terms of, "Where am I 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.

The next big question you have to ask yourself is, "Where do I want to be?"

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.

The what you need to know part of the list should be a hell of a lot longer and more dense than the "what you know" part of the list. Truth is, you only have started to scratch the surface in a world full of knowledge.

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

This will help you achieve your greatest dreams.

All of this is pure magic.
