“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”

Think of times in your life when you did not get an opportunity that you wanted, an important goal or plan did not come through, or you were hurt or rejected by someone.

Now look at the months and years following the “closed door.” What were the positive opportunities, accomplishments, or relationships that occurred? Would these have been possible if the “closed door” had not happened first?

Consider a door that closed on you. Where in your life were doors opened?

When one door closes, another one almost always opens.
