Imagine that you’re walking down a long hallway. You have no idea which key fits into which door or which door to try. The only thing you know is that opportunity could be on the other side, and any key in hand could be the right one.
Although possibilities are endless, real success is hard to come by. How do you figure out which key to use and which door is right?
Your first task is to determine which keys to focus on and which to leave behind. The wall is lined with many, and you have to select those that you feel will open the most doors. Nothing is guaranteed, but some are more promising than others. Several open only one, while others open many.
The selection of keys is quite extensive; consistency, dedication, determination, persistence and purpose to name a few. While others are shinier and more attractive, the brightest keys don’t necessarily open the most doors. So, you decide to leave those behind.
Keys in hand, you try to open as many doors as possible. Opportunity is all around. A right mindset is what you need. If you find the right door, you’re confident that you have what it takes to succeed.
Uncertainty and doubt creep in with every attempt, but one thing is sure. Success is on the other side. Consistency, determination and persistence prompt you to try every door. Although several doors open, they aren’t necessarily the right ones. Dedication, hope and positivity inspire you to keep going. Faith, focus and purpose remind you of the reasons why.
Opportunity is everywhere. Mindset is key. If the right door opens, make sure you have the key. If willing to try every key, you’ll eventually find one that opens the right door.
