Don’t remember where I came across this at, but I like it.
Most people are too attached to the past, to what they are familiar with, and therefore, miss opportunities that stand right in front of them.
Doors may close, but there are always other unlimited number of doors – new opportunities. The world is full of opportunities, if we could only see them. The Infinite Power is boundless, and so the possibilities are without number.
Not every plan works out. Sometimes, there are losses and failures. Sometimes, there are problems in relationships. Sometimes, people lose their money or job, or meet other unpleasant things.
We don’t always have control over these events, but we can exercise control over our mind and attitude. When one of these things happens, and we focus our attention on the loss – the closed door, we see only a closed door with the resultant frustration and unhappiness.
If we could only move our sight and attention away from the closed door, we might be surprised to discover new, open doors.
It might not be so easy to move our eyes elsewhere, due to attachment to the old and familiar, and fear of the new and the unknown.
