Holistic Ways to Open New Doors of Opportunity
Doors of opportunity are open to those that actively seek them. Luck happens for those that seek it. Therefore, in order to attract it, your mind is what you’ll need to take you there. When it’s all said and done, we are only a product of our thoughts.
Everything we seek is right before us all. It is only up to us to know what to do with it once it arrives. But if you are to increase your chances, there are a few things you might want to keep in mind.
Dwell with Those of Like Minds
Everyone you allow in your circle has the ability to influence you in some way. As the great book puts it, “Iron sharpens iron.” Therefore, everything I am, and everything I want must align in some way with the ones I keep. The doors of opportunity we seek lie within the places we dwell. In order words, if your current affiliations aren’t any support to your life, they’re no good to you.
That doesn’t mean they’re horrible people. Nor does it mean that you’re better than they are. It just means that these people don’t currently align with the path you’re looking to take. Be not judgmental. But rather, be focused on where you’re looking to be.
Be Intentional About the Doors of Opportunity You Seek
One thing that I find very important is the doors of opportunity that align with your mission. That is why your mission must be clear. If you’re sincere, along your journey of living, many new ‘opportunities’ will arise. The key to taking an opportunity is taking the right one. It doesn’t matter how big it may be, if it isn’t the right one, it’ll never feel right.
Be mindful as to where you’re going, so that it’s clear to see what you’re looking for. What that intent, you will always know what to do when that time comes. It will be as clear as something you’ve seen before. So familiar with it, you will have known that your time has come.
How do you present yourself to the world? Are you truly your favorite person? There was a time in my life when I truly understand why someone wouldn’t like me. I knew what my favorite person looked like, therefore I already knew who I was looking to be. Along with being a great person is being kind. There’s no greater feeling, whether it be giving it or receiving it. Nothing feels greater.
Despite the doors of opportunity you seek, remain humble. What you know you’ve taken, and what you’ve taken isn’t for you to keep. With that, you understand that everything you’ve attained is a result of the world’s cycle of generosity. Only through humility could one acknowledge it, and live accordingly. So be humble about the blessings you receive. Be open, be kind, be giving to those in need.
Try not to be so self-focused that you seek yourself in everything you do. It creates a miserable life and life only begins when you start to see the depths of it beyond you.
So leave a note at the door of opportunity that you seek. Let it know that whatever you seek, you are open to. And for whatever it is you are open to, the gratitude to have noticed it in the first place. So be present, intentional, kind, and humble. A blessing is always something to be cherished indeed.
