Have you ever had a door of opportunity slam in your face? A job application…that you did not get; a loan…that was turned down; a friendship or relationship…that ended; a proposal…where the answer was no.
When this happens in pursuit of your dream, do not focus on the closed door. Crawl through a window or tear a hole in the roof! Step back and do an assessment. What happened? What did you discover about yourself? What do you need to do? Who must you become to move forward in your life?
Whatever you do…do not give up simply because it becomes challenging. Do not ask for life to make it easier for you to reach your goals. Make the decision to become a better person in order to accomplish your goals. Believe this – there will be other doors and more opportunities. Know that you will be stronger, wiser, more capable and better prepared to take advantage of them, because of what you have discovered about yourself, and how you have changed in the process.
