This can happen to any of us, a problem, a setback or a failure often encounters us in our lives, and we think it’s the end of our lives, and keep thinking of it so much and so often, we are unable to see the other door openers. When one door shuts, another one opens. Failures are the stepping stones to success, there is nothing called failures, we must start looking at failures as learnings, every failure has something to teach us, if we are open and wise we will start thanking for these experiences, which has enabled us to become who we are today!
Be Blessed & Be Happy !
