Move beyond your past into the future God has for you.  Jesus said, “I have come that you may have life and have it more abundantly.” But one of the things that can prevent you from living this abundant life today is yesterday’s unfinished business.  As much as we may want to live in the present, the past often influences us in ways we don’t even realize.

Unfinished Business helps you identify the areas in your life where you’ve become stuck and then overcome the issues that are keeping you there, including attitudes and thought patterns such as:
  • Anger, resentment, hurt feelings, stereotypes, and prejudices
  • Failures, poor decisions, and mistakes
  • Perfectionism, poor self-image, and feelings of inadequacy
  • Disappointment and unfulfilled dreams
  • Worry, fear, and anxiety
You will never be ready for a new experience if you are dragging your old feelings around with you.  It’s time to move forward and experience the life that God has waiting for you.

A key to successful living is learning from the past but leaving the past in the past.  Jesus taught us to shake off the dust, and Dr. David Cooper gives us great insight and specific instruction in his wonderful book, teaching us how to be released from areas that hold us captive.
Dave Ramsey, #1 New York Times Best-Selling Author

None of us are exempt from the difficulties and painful experiences of life.  But in order to move forward and embrace new opportunities, we have to push past the pain and keep it moving.  This book is a dynamic and compelling book that reveals how to do just that.  Dr. David C. Cooper candidly explains how to recognize when you’re carrying “dust” or residue that may be hindering your progress in life.  Then he masterfully exposes how to “shake it off” and refuse to be a victim of anything, including repressed memories, your past, regrets, fear, disappointment, rejection, anger, resentment, and failure.

Unfinished Business is a must-read for those who are stagnant in life and don’t know how to confront the negative, excess baggage that has them weighted down.  This thought-provoking masterpiece by Dr. Cooper demonstrates how to “shake off the dust” of the past, move forward toward your divine destiny, and embrace all the wonderful blessings God has in store for your future!
