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 that has opened for us.

~Alexander Graham Bell

Throughout life, you will discover that, although you might want something really bad, you have to realize that it simply might not be for you at that moment. It could very well be somebody else’s blessing. You cannot spend too much time reflecting on that closed door. You are so “captivated” by what went wrong that you will miss the next opportunity.

As a businessowner, we have our ups and downs, good and bad. We do not win every contract that we bid on. That is just wishful thinking, to say the least. However, upon notice that we did not win a contract, we will give a brief pause to what we could have done differently, if anything, and then we simply move on. We can’t go through the days wondering why, how come and what for. It is a time-waster and holds no value.

Learn to put things in perspective. What is for you will be there for you. You do not have to force it, push it, or coerce it. One thing about a closed door is that it will definitely teach you patience…patience to learn to wait for the next door to open. Are you going to be ready? Focus on preparing and stop waddling in what was.
