“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” – Alexander Graham Bell
Fact of life: things won’t always go as planned. No matter how hard we work, or how much we plan ahead, or how “ready” we are, many times things don’t always meet our expectations. Life will continually challenge, push, frustrate, and inspire you, and when one opportunity seems to disappear into thin air, we sometimes feel stuck.
But look again.
Many times our lost opportunity is really an opening for something else. You lost your job? Well, now you can concentrate on building your business or finding a job you love. Broke up with your boyfriend? Perhaps this leaves you free to meet someone who’s really right for you.
While we will certainly suffer setbacks, life’s too short to dwell on them. Instead, focus on the positives and the opportunities that are sure to come your way.
