Take Time to Create a Life Balance Sheet for Success

By Joy Fisher-Sykes

It's important from time to time that we sit down and honestly assess our lives. Doing so allows us to make an honest determination about where we are now and where we want to be in the future. When we're assessing our finances, we prepare a financial balance sheet. On it we list our debits and credits so that we can determine our bottom line. What if you wanted to determine the state of the life you lead? How is it, or is it not, serving you? The answer is simple - prepare a Life Balance Sheet. Much like a financial balance sheet, list all of your lifestyle debits (choices that detract from balance) such as the following:

  • Maintaining relationships that drain you

  • Constantly whining, griping, or complaining

  • Inability to say no

  • Always expecting the worse

  • Being ungrateful

  • Unwilling to listen effectively

  • Forgetting to mind your manners

  • Taking others for granted

Next list your credits - ways you live your life that support and honor you. Anything positive you count as a credit - no action is too big or too small. Below are a few credits that add to your life's bottom line.

  1. Smile - not just at people you know, but especially at those you don't

  2. Give to others without expecting anything in return

  3. Do one thing outside of your comfort zone that improves the quality of your life

  4. Allow someone to merge into traffic - even if they didn't wait their turn

  5. Compliment a salesperson/clerk on a job well done

  6. Use the good crystal and china other than for a holiday

  7. Be honest about what you need to be happy

  8. Read to a child

  9. Dance to your favorite music

  10. Place your neighbors newspaper right outside their door

  11. Call someone just to say "hello and to see how they are doing

  12. Buy a co-worker a cup of coffee or ice cream cone

  13. Walk barefoot in the grass

  14. Tell someone "I love you"

  15. Learn one new thing every week

  16. Every day acknowledge at least one thing in life for which you are grateful

At least once a month, create a Life Balance Sheet. Take a look at your Life Balance Sheet at least once a day. This will empower you, at a glance, to realize how wonderful life can be and allow you to make lifestyle adjustments as necessary. Remember, a great life is yours to create. Go create a fabulous life!

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
