4 Smart Reasons to Resolve Things Which Are Holding You Back

Let me first start off by saying that absolutely none of us are perfect. We all have things in life that are weighing us down that we haven’t quite resolved.  I truly believe that in order for each one of us to soar in life, we must resolve the things that are holding us back.  They are the things that at some level keep creeping up in our life. They are the things that keep an emotional, negative affect on us. We may not always think they are affecting us, but they really are at some level. For myself, I always explore if there are some unresolved things in my life prior to taking on a big goal because I want to ensure I am focused and have the positive energy I need to make the greatest impact. The things that we need to resolve are unique to ourselves. The key is to find out what things need to be resolved in your own life so you can commit to taking care of them and move positively forward from them.

This is not an all-inclusive list of some things you might need to resolve, but perhaps this will help you think about what might be weighing you down:

  • Do you need to try to repair a relationship?
  • Do you need to commit to paying off debt?
  • Do need to apologize to someone that you’ve been putting off way too long?
  • Do you need to find a way to stop being so hard on yourself?
  • Do you need to forgive someone right now?
  • Do you need to clean out the physical clutter somewhere in your office or home?
  • Do you need to resolve some anger issues or sadness that has been holding you back for way too long?

If you want to soar in life, you must unload what's weighing you down. Click To Tweet

You deserve great happiness and success but in order to be your best, you need to take care of what is weighing you down! Here are 4 smart reasons you should resolve things that are holding you back!

4 Smart Reasons to Resolve Things Which Are Holding You Back

  1. To Be Your Best You Must Be Focused – I think we all know that going for our big goals takes a lot of energy and it must be positive, focused energy.  But you can’t do it if you have unresolved things that are holding you back. Resolve those nagging things in your life and you’ll see yourself focused towards huge success and happiness.
  2. You Will Have a Much More Positive Mindset – There is never enough positivity in your life. Each day, I think we all would love to have a little more energy! When you resolve what has been holding you back, you’ll feel lighter, much more inspired and have a much more positive mindset!
  3. Live Life With No Regrets – Have you ever known someone that has had regrets in their life? I sure have and it’s not a great thing to hear.  When you commit to taking action and resolving those things that are holding you back, you ensure that you are living a life with absolutely no regrets! 
  4. You Deserve Daily Happiness – Life is way too short to be weighed down with negative things. It is imperative to not wait to take care of the things that are holding you back. You deserve great happiness. Commit to going for happiness right now!

Are there things that you want and need to resolve so that you can really soar? Have you done the work already? I’d love to hear from you!

    Cynthia, I loved this. A lot of times we don’t think that certain things are weighing us down when they actually are. Something simple as cleaning out clutter is a weight! We’ve got to remember to examine ourselves to see what is stopping us from progressing! I loved what you said about how you explore to see if you have any unresolved things prior to taking on big goals. I think that is powerful!
