One of the most important lessons
I teach my prosperity students is to
never assume a door is closed
based on outer appearances. Stated in the positive, always assume the
door is open.
One of my private students had a wonderful example of
this. Barbara is an attorney but instead of continuing to practice law,
she chose to work in attorney placement (recruiting).
She had a perfect candidate for a certain type of law firm and
everything seemed to be completely synchronistic until the day she
called to set up the appointment for her candidate's interview. When
she called, the firm informed her that they had decided to use another
I explained to her that she must never assume that the door is closed -
that anything can happen and she should not be "hypnotized" by
appearances. Always leave the door open in your consciousness. Don't
assume a result is final.
Well, only a week went by and the firm called her to tell her that the
other recruiting firm didn't work out after all, so they were still
looking and needed her services. She called her candidate to make sure
he was still available, and found out that he was. But again, when she
called to arrange the interview, the firm thanked her but told her they
had just hired an attorney to fill the position. She congratulated the
client and told him to feel free to call her in the
future if they needed her help.
She was disappointed but I reminded her again to always assume that the
door is open. She bounced back.
A few days went by, and the client called her again. Apparently the
attorney they hired did not accept the position after all.
By this time, she had come up with
two perfect candidates for the firm
and after all that had transpired, the preferred scenario would be for
the client to decide which candidate to hire.
I was delighted when Barbara told me that she had consummated the
placement for that firm. Delighted, but not surprised.
So you see, we must never consider an opportunity "lost" or gone. Based
on our faith in the divine order of things, the Universe will create
all manner of adjustments to bring to us what is rightfully ours. And
often there must be adjustments in circumstances and timing to allow
all of the right elements to come together in a situation.
secret is to relax and trust.
It can make a profound
difference in your ability to manifest.
You have everything to gain and
nothing to lose from assuming that the door is open. You are in fact
putting your trust in the divine instead of your own preconceived
But you have everything to lose
if you push the door closed while it may just be ajar.
