A Summary Of The Questions To Ask To Get Closure On Regrets & Lost Goals

Today’s post continues with inspirational quotes to trigger reflective thoughts, here finalizing the posts about finding motivation in regrets:

“The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.” Harriet Beecher Stowe

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” Alexander Graham Bell

Here are all the questions you can ask yourself about your regrets and failed goals that you have not been able to leave behind with the aim to get emotional closure:

1) Which are your top 3 regrets? Have you been able to move on?

2) Do you have an important goal that you have failed to achieve and that you still consider?

3) Why is this goal or regret still important? What is the value or dream behind?

4) What could you do to get emotional closure on this? Are there actions you are yearning to take or someone you would like to talk to?

5) When could you do it?

6) Write or record a film where you share your regret and your renewed goal as well as the related value or dream – the reason why it still matters.

7) Talk to at least one person close to you about this.

After having done these steps, you can ask yourself:

How did it feel to reflect upon regrets?

Where there any resistance? What is driving the resistance?

How can you give yourself the opportunity to learn from your life more frequently?

How and when can you make this a routine?
