222: Amazing Opportunities Are Through Open Doors



The amazing opportunities are through open doors. I am constantly encouraged and energized by watching the people around me and how they get to grow. Amazing opportunities and platforms and through all the different things they’re doing through books, memberships, communities, podcasts, all those different things. And almost every time I talk to successful people about what they’re doing, I am constantly encouraged by how they walked through open doors, how they took opportunities not knowing where it was going to take them, but just trusting themselves, trusting God, trusting the situation, and just knowing that it was the door they should walk through.

Taking opportunities

On today’s episode, I share a story about a friend of mine who has been podcasting for several years with no monetization on his shows, and suddenly was approached by one of the biggest networks. He is now making $300,000 a year for doing what he was already doing for free!

I asked, “What were the numbers like at the beginning? And he told me, “Oh, you know, I had a couple downloads on each episode, and it usually was me making sure the episode posted or a family member trying to support me.”

He could have gotten discouraged those few years ago that no one was listening and stopped, but instead they remained consistent and continued walking through open doors. So this person now has more than a full-time income from it. Almost all of us would be super happy with $300,000 a year and would have no complaints.

I just started doing things, walking through open doors, and who knows where it goes? Will it be a $300,000 a year thing? Probably not. Will it be a $100,000 a year thing? Probably not, but I won’t know that until I walk through those open doors.

Take chances and try things.

If you are out there doubting yourself, I just need you to hear this. I don’t care whether you’re five years old or 50 or a hundred, I don’t care if you. Or a realtor or a writer or a construction worker or a police officer. I don’t care what it is. What I know is that there’s opportunities through open doors to build successful. Again, platforms, memberships, podcast, books, et cetera.

All of those things come through walking through open doors and taking those opportunities. Just start taking steps, stepping out in faith, and beginning to build something. You have the wisdom and knowledge to build something unique and special, where you can really serve people and help people and wake up excited every day.
