Doors to growth

A closed door. Either the end of a road or just a concealed passage to a secret world of prospect.

It is not so much the door, but the promises beyond. The mystic of a closed door provides the stuff for infinite dreams of hidden treasures and unknown opportunities.  It just depends on your attitude towards challenges. Do you accept the perceived limits or do you test them to your potential?

So often we encounter closed doors on our journey towards our set goal and often we take it as an indication to alter direction.  Yet if you only pause, consider the “might be’s” you could discover the passage to unimagined options. Think beyond the door; dream up a vision of new, undiscovered rooms filled with interesting challenges. It could provide you with choices you have not yet considered. Closed doors are just dream generators to help you multiplying your options. So, stop, dream, go for it!

    Confucius – the wise old man – said: The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

    Yip… I have to open a few doors and step into my dreams. I have to move on! My challenge for 2012

    Life is a series of pathways and doorways.

    The doorway to life is always open; with welcoming arms she calls you in.
    Some doors are large and some are small, but no matter the size they have one thing in common.
    To let you in to a room or a garden, a new slant on life that’s sure to be different.
    A door to a church where we go to pray, a door to a heart where we long to stay.
    Red doors or brown doors, tin ones or wooden, some with bars and padlocks to form a prison.
    I remember a door in a small town in Cornwall with a porch made of wood, surrounded by creepers,
    so quaint, so welcoming, so olde world charming.
    A door to a cottage built long long ago.
    Doorways to pubs and doorways to schools;
    No matter our age, our gender or colour, we all go through doors on our way to our goals.
    We have to enter new doors each fresh day to take us forever onwards;
    To open new chapters in life’s endless search for avenues of learning.
