Sometimes we assume that if a door is closed, that it was meant to be. We tend to brush them off, and begin our next venture to another door. And granted sometimes those doors should very much be closed. But, what about those doors that we really want? Those closed doors just mean another opportunity to try again, and again, and again. To learn and to build perseverance because we see the goodness of what it holds. Some of those who saw goodness, worked hard, and persevered with an idea kept knocking on that door: Dr. Suess was rejected by 27 publishers for his first book, Harrison Ford was told he wouldn’t be a successful actor after his first small movie, Steve Jobs was fired from his own company, and Abraham Lincoln was defeated in 8 elections. While these are very recognizable names now, they all started somewhere and believed in an idea. So here’s to those doors that may seem all too familiar to us, we just might be surprised at when they open. Maybe we wait, and come back knocking again and again. Or maybe we even build a house with our own door. Who knows, but it all depends on one thing, and that’s if you really want it.
