Therefore, we started upon a personal inventory. This was Step Four. A business which takes no regular inventory usually goes broke. Taking a commercial inventory is a fact-finding and a fat-facing process. It is an effort to discover the truth about the stock-in-trade. One object is to disclose damaged or unsalable goods, to get rid of of them promptly and without regret. If the owner of the business is to be successful, he cannot fool himself with values.

We did exactly the same thing with our lives. We took stock honestly. First, we searched out the flaws in our make-up which caused our failure. Being convinced that self, manifested in various ways, was what had defeated us, we considered its common manifestations.

Now for some people this was a scary step to take.  But did find that it was something that had to be done.  Some of spent weeks on it tying to do it right.  But trying to do it right the first time is not important, you can always go back in revise it and add things that you may have forgotten.  The important thing is that you have started it.

Topic:  Was coming to the Fourth Step a frightening experience to you. And when you finished how much of a help was it doing it?

Have a good meeting. 
Have a good day,
