Getting Our Foot In The Door


Oftentimes, what we pray for isn’t success, rather opportunities.

Getting our foot in the door isn’t easy, unlocking a closed door is the hardest part of the entire process. Although it is inevitable to run into other problems as we move along the corridor; however, an insider’s insecurities and worries tend to be more manageable than an outsider’s fear of the unknown and of the uncontrollable eagerness of the anticipation.

I remember watching a New York Times interview, given by the famed fashion model and businesswoman, Tyra Banks. At the start of her modeling career, she had countless doors slammed in her face, due to the fact that she didn’t fit the stereotypical mainstream beauty ideal. Her mom gave her a sounding advice. She told her that if the front door was closed, got in from the back door. I want to believe that there is a back door available to all of us, under every circumstance. We just have to figure out where it is.
