Forward To Opportunity
“There will always be a door to the light.” ― Shiro Amano
There will be days go by when all we do is contemplate and worry over that which we have or has been done in our life. We will obsess over what might have been or what our current lot is in life.
Looking backwards constantly in our lives is one thing we must change in order to move ahead in our life.
Yes, knowing and understanding the history of where we have been is a good thing. We use it to study and reflect upon what we have previously done to place us where we are now.
To move ahead, we must look forward for opportunities that await us.
The key thing is to move forward and not stay chained to what has already occurred. In the physical sense, our eyes are in the front of our head...looking forward, not backwards. We walk forward and not backward.
Alexander Graham Bell said, "sometimes we stare so long at a door that is closing that we see too late the one that is open." If we continue to look backwards never seeing the open door, we will never see the open door. We will never see new opportunity opening before us. We could drown in the fading light of history, wondering if things could have been different.
Keep your dreams in front of you, looking for new doors to change; for new opportunity that is presenting itself to you.
One door may close but another is always opening if we simply look for it. History and current circumstance will be your support, but forward momentum will be your future. Keep your eyes open and looking for that open door of opportunity.
Stay inspired in 2015 my friends!
