Imagine you’re facing a door, and on the other side of that door is change. In order to move forward you have to open the door without really knowing what’s on the other side. The change is invisible to you from where you’re standing, and the only way to see it is by opening the door. Will you open it?
Often, doors to change become visible to us at times when we’re ready for them. They’re not always there, but when they appear they challenge us to make the next move of turning the knob and stepping through the threshold. When the door’s there, it’s hard to ignore it. It won’t let you forget that there’s something you have to face on the other side.
It can be tempting to ignore the unknown and stick to the familiarity of your side of the door. Besides, nothing’s forcing you to make the change. However, by pretending the door isn’t there, you can miss out on good opp0rtunities and learning experiences. Even though you have no idea what’s on the other side, that’s okay. Important doors often lead to places where we’ve never been before.
Do you see a door you can open toward change? It could be in any area of your life such as personal growth, career, relationships, family, or health. If you’re standing there contemplating whether to make a move, remember it’s okay that you’re not sure what’s on the other side. But the door is there for a reason. Open the door to the invisible.
