Closed Doors, Open Opportunities

“Realize that if a door closed, it’s because what was behind it wasn’t meant for you.” -Mandy Hale

You didn’t get that job.  Revamp the resume, sharpen your interview skills, and go get a better one.

Your crush said no.  There is a better fit out there for you.

A dozen rejection letters from agents for your book?  From “Gone With The Wind” to “Harry Potter”, it happens over and over until the right one says yes.

Bands that have success with their first album rarely succeed long range.  Same with authors that hit #1 with their first book or athletes that never fail early: they don’t learn to pick themselves up, dust themselves off and improve their game on multiple levels.  They don’t get a chance to develop their guts if things are too easy, so they never challenge their capabilities and unlock their full abilities. 

Those who walk through the first door settle for those low hanging fruits and never build the ability to keep knocking on doors until the right one opens with The Grand Prize.  Keep knocking until the right one opens for you.
