When life gets busy or stressful, we tend to sweep things under the proverbial rug, to deal with later. Now, be honest, how often do you actually air out the rug? Conducting a life audit is about really taking the time to delve into all aspects, in order to reveal what’s working for you and what isn’t. Doing so can bring significant changes that enhance day to day living, as well as your future prospects.
Most importantly, it helps you break out of robotic cycles that might not serve you well. Get a pen and paper and get ready to breathe new life into everything you do.
Taking time to audit your life brings significant positive change.
Get down and dirty to unearth liabilities
It’s time to be completely honest about any mess that needs cleaning up, by asking yourself the hard hitting questions.
Chances are, there’s a lot of dirt, dust and random odds and ends under that rug. The only way you’ll see it, is if you lift it up. It’s time to be completely honest about any mess that needs cleaning up, by asking yourself the hard hitting questions. Are you in control of your finances? Are you spending time on your goals? Do you feel energised and healthy? What do you regret? Do you feel self-empowered? Are you indulging in negative habits or patterns? When you answer honestly, you’ll soon reveal what your biggest liabilities are.
Take note of your assets
Next up, write down everything in your life you consider an asset. All those things that make you feel happy, fulfilled, successful and aligned with purpose. They could include the fact that you eat a healthy diet, have meaningful relationships, are an expert at something, save money successfully or offer valuable support to those in your life. Don’t be shy about bragging here. It’s just as important to reveal your assets, as it is to unearth your liabilities.
A life audit helps you reveal liabilities, that may hold you back from achieving goals.

After doing that, it should be pretty clear which areas of life are working for you, and which are not. Perhaps you’ve noticed specific patterns, like you seem to be kicking career goals because that area makes you feel good, but you’re always tired and sick, so you’re obviously neglecting overall health.
If it makes it easier, group your audit into topics, such as health, money, career and relationships. Make two columns, for assets and liabilities, under each topic. Imagine how much better life could be, once you start eliminating the liabilities, one by one. Brainstorm ideas as to what steps you can take to do so and jot them down.
This is the beginning of a goals list. When you tick them off, via realistic steps, your assets will grow practically by themselves. Then, you’ll be ready to invest clear focus towards actively growing your assets, without the weight of the liabilities holding you back from the life you deserve.
