One day you’re going to arrive at a door in your life. It’s not just any door. It’s a door that holds a very specific set of rules and can only be opened when those rules are followed.⁠

This isn’t just any door, it’s a door that leads you to the next stage of your life. You might arrive at that door and spend some time trying to open it but it remains locked. Some people turn away. Some try to go around it. And then there’s the few who sit by it and learn everything they can about it.⁠

Each door that we come across is made differently. They are beautiful in their own way. No two doors are the same and you can’t use the exact same knowledge to open the new one. They also hold completely different aspects of your story and take you on a path that you are meant to travel.⁠

the lessons will repeat themselves endlessly until you finally decide to change. evan sanders. the better man project. quote.

You can decide to ignore the door if you wish, but it won’t take you to where you need to be. It will take you off course for as long as you wish and you’ll experience many different things. But it will never be what you’ve known deep down in your soul that you were supposed to do.⁠

So eventually, if we allow ourselves, we arrive back at the foot of the door reflecting on what it took for us to arrive at this point in time. Sitting. Thinking. Remembering. Questioning.⁠

Then, when you’ve finally committed to moving forward in a different way, the door swings open and you’re exposed to an entirely new world. But that door only opens when you’ve made the decision with every ounce of your being. That’s when you’re granted access.⁠

The key to every door is faith. Without it, you can’t go where you need to. You spin your wheels and reject your path. But with it, anything is possible. All doors open. All paths can be realized. All journeys taken.⁠

Don’t ever stop believing.
