One of my favorite books is Feel The Fear and Do It Anyway . It taught me that when we push outside of our comfort zone we will inevitably experience fear which, rather than being a bad sign, is actually positive as it indicates we are growing and advancing. The trick is to feel the fear and do it anyway! When I first sat down to do a life audit it was a very scary experience. For the first time I was confronting the reality of my life rather than doing anything I could to deny what a state it was in. In order for my life audit to be effective I had to brutally honest, I had to face what I feared the most – I had to accept that my life in need of a renovation.
But then something amazing happened, I started thinking about what I wanted my life to look like and I began to see the limitless possibilities in front of me. If, like me, you are hesitant to do a life audit take heart – the aim is not to dwell in self-pity but to envisage your life afresh, for without knowing where you are, you can’t move forward to where you want to be.
