CREDOS: Tying loose ends — I
The final step toward putting your past behind so you can reach for what’s possible is tying up your loose ends. Loose ends are the unresolved relationships that keep you from sleeping worry free at night. Skeletons are hard to keep buried because they always have a bone to pick.
You have a loose end, if there’s someone you don’t want to see at the grocery store or movie theater. You have a loose end, if there’s someone you don’t want to run into on a first date or at work. You have a loose end, if there’s someone you don’t want to sit next to at a holiday dinner. Loose ends are distracting and have an amazing way of biting you in the butt at the worst times.
When loose ends are lurking in the back of your mind, they take your focus off doing what it takes to succeed. Loose ends bring you back to a place where you don’t want or need to go. Loose ends must be tied up so they cannot run free to steal your confidence and concentration. Tying up loose ends allows you to totally focus on doing what you need to do to get where you want to go.
Identify the five people with whom you have the most unresolved issues. These could be past relationships, employers, business partners, friends, family, or co-workers.
These are people you avoid talking with and running into. Contact each of these five loose ends as soon as you can. Invite each separately to a coffee shop or some other non-threatening, non-alcohol environment. — Beliefnet.com
