Who knew “opening doors” could be so difficult? What doors are you trying to open? The one to help you feel better about yourself? Or perhaps a better home for you and your family? Those would be the doors of self determination! A better job, or career … looks like you’re still at the door of self-determination. Your own business? Self determination! Making positive things happen for yourself and others? Yes, still the same door of self determination!
Do you notice a theme going on here? The secret to opening doors that will lead you to your success in bringing about the changes you desire – is to tell yourself you can do it. And then make it happen through repeated persistence, cultivating a – never give up, some way – some how, attitude!
Is it easy? Of course not! Nothing worthwhile comes easy. Self determination doesn’t just happen. There’s more than just a bit of work required. Is it doable? Yes – if you think you can (and you can)! Is it worth it? Absolutely!
When opportunity knocks at your door,
remember you’re the one who needs to open it!”

Thanks for your visit today. In the coming weeks I’ll be sharing a few specific “how-to’s” on what and how you can achieve a strong self determining attitude. In the meantime, Remember to keep taking care of you. If you don’t secure your own health and well-being first, anything you are striving towards becomes much more difficult.

That image looks rather creepy at first glance, but it conveys an important message. Sometimes, you have to open doors of opportunity yourself!
Hello, Alejandro. Yes we do. I though the photo was a good illustration for that, although, as you say, rather creepy in appearance, lol!
Words of wisdom! Hugs to you my dear and have a wonderful day! ^..^ B

Your words are very true Penny and they remind me of something I heard elsewhere by Harvey Mackay
“Nobody ever said life would be easy, they just said it would be worth it”. You give the same kind of inspiration my friend. Thank you

Hi Sue! Thanks. I find I need to reaffirm my own self determination almost every day. I look forward to, hopefully passing on some of the things that work for me!
