Life is a journey! I’m sure we’ve all heard that one before, right? Sadly, though, sometimes this journey has some disappointments and sometimes doors slam in our face. I’m sure we’ve all experienced disappointments in our lives from time to time, right? But don’t sweat it because just like winter has its opposite in summer, and night has its opposite in day, a door closing on our hopes, ambitions, and dreams has its opposite in the form of another door opening that promises us even better hopes, ambitions, and dreams.

Now what happens when we just outright get rejected and hurt by a door slamming violently in our faces? Believe it or not, same success and leadership principle from above is still at work! That violent door brutally slamming on us and even hurting us has its opposite too. Passing through that painful slamming door just wasn’t meant to be. There is a better door right down the road for us if we’d only be brave enough to pick ourselves up, brush ourselves off, and journey down the road a bit further. If we find the courage, will, and wisdom to travel further, I’m sure we’ll find an even better future door opening for us that we couldn’t see from way back there in our past.

Still not sure… Think back to a time when you had an old boyfriend or girlfriend that broke your heart and you worried that you may never find another one… What happened? Yup! You found another one. What about that old job you were worried about leaving? You found another one of those too, didn’t you? See… It really works, doesn’t it?

Now please share with the rest of us how you plan to use Granddaddy’s secret of,  ”When One Door Closes, Another Opens!”
