Never End Up saying It is "A Door to Nowhere"- My Response to Billybuc's Writing Challenge

Updated on March 27, 2015

Venkatachari is a spiritual minded Hindu, aged 63 years. He values morals, ethics, traditions and believes in God. A positive minded person.

Responding to a challenge

I have been asked to respond to the challenge with following conditions.

  • I have to start the hub with a sentence provided by my great hubber friend " Was it really only yesterday."
  • I have to use the picture prompt provided by him 'an image depicting A door to Nowhere'.

I can write whatever I want using the above two prompts leading to a good article with some reasonable sense about the subject matter of the Door leading to Nowhere.

Don't sit depressed- There is always Hope

Be positive. Think positive and tell yourself: You are Stronger, You Can Do it, There is always A Door Open

What I want to tell here

I want to make people realize the need for seeing optimism and a ray of hope even in the most vulnerable situations. I want to say that there can be nothing like "The door to Nowhere". It is only a part of our negative thinking attitude and visualization of a one sided perception of the real circumstances or objects.

So, let me now start my presentation in proving that every door has many options and paths to follow and it depends on your choice and will power. Please bear with me in going through it and express your views on my presentation. Your views are of great value to me in increasing my writing styles.

Here I Go

Was it really only yesterday?

Was it really only yesterday, that I came across phrases like this - The Door to Nowhere? No, it can't be. I have been hearing things like this since days, months and years long. I remember hearing it at my childhood. I remember hearing it at my teenage, even at my adolescence and all through my adulthood. And, even now, I often come across sayings like these: 'A Door to Nowhere' and 'A Path to Nowhere'.

Your Door to Happiness: Open it

"The Door to Nowhere"- they say. But, I tell you "Open the Door" and see how it  can lead you to a Happier Life.

Do you believe in a Door to Nowhere?

See results

They say it is The Door to Nowhere

See "that is the Door to Nowhere" - they pinpoint to the door and say. But, how can there be a door and then, also at the same time, that which leads to nowhere? This perception itself is wrong and absurd. We say it is a Door. And then we are saying it leads to Nowhere. Is there any sense in this? Door always takes you somewhere. It may lead you into a beautiful room or it can land you into a place full of filth and shit. But it takes you somewhere. Is it wrong? Then how can we say it is A Door to Nowhere? So, the perception of 'The Door to Nowhere' itself is wrong.

It depends upon our perceptions

When we see some objects or incidents, we often frame conclusions according to our perceptions,beliefs and understanding capacities. We might have already experienced some similar circumstances or heard about similar occurrences taken place and our mental perception has been habituated to perceive and understand them in a particular way. So, it is most likely that whenever we come across such objects or events, we see them from that particular angle only. We may not feel the need to go into the depth of it and mostly begin to frame conclusions spontaneously.

Need to mend our attitudes

We need to mend and mold our thinking attitudes. If we see only the dark part of it, we will end up in saying that it is a door to Nowhere. But, who knows what is there on the other side of it? If we take some pains and strive with some patience to look into the depth of it, we may find it out to be a completely different thing or something better than that we have been perceiving till now.

For example, if we take some pain in opening the door and stepping out through the narrow lanes of darkness, removing the filth and hurdles with a little bit of patience and a sense of responsibility, then we may find ourselves standing in a beautiful path that the same door has lead us to. So, here with a little bit of effort, we are able to change the whole situation. The Door to Nowhere has now become a door to some beautiful path.

If we can think a little bit more positively and travel from the same door, making our path beautiful all through the time and for a little more distance, we may find our environment and experiences to be even more pleasant and can end up in a state of eternal bliss and happiness.

Here is a link to a blog by Doctor Kavitha on 5 tips to mend your thinking process towards Positive Thoughts which can be of much help to us.

Find yourself in a beautiful Path from that Door

Never Give Up

  • Never end up in hopelessness.
  • There are no such doors leading nowhere.
  • Open your Door and step out.
  • Always keep moving. Clear up the hurdles while moving.
  • Never say there is no way.
  • Always think positively.
  • Rely on your hope.
  • Strive to your last moment.

A small Ray of Light is sufficient to Dispel all the Darkness.

Similarly a little Hope is enough to achieve Success in Life.

So don't be afraid of Darkness or Failures.

Be Positive and it will lead you to Happiness.

Here's a story

There is a story in the video linked here.

The story of a tiger and a baby bear. The tiger finds the baby bear alone in a deserted valley and runs to catch and kill it. The cub spots the tiger and runs as fast as he can to escape from the tiger through the hills, valleys and by climbing on to trees to reach safer places during which act, the tree breaks and it fells into the deep waters of a dreadful running stream. Even then the cub does not lose hope and struggles hard to escape from the clutches of the tiger. See how the cub in the end finds her path to safety because of her continuous efforts and gets saved by her mother's presence there at the end of that utter hopeless destination.

From this story, we can learn how even the worst of all the worst circumstances can turn out to be blessings in disguise for us.

So, we should never lose hope till our last moment. Instead, we should strive hard and mend things and turn even the most dreadful circumstance also into favourable means of attaining blissful joy and happiness.

Never Give Up and end up in hopelessness

      You are right there is no such thing as a door to nowhere. Though I do believe there are some doors that open onto nowhere that I would like to go places. I also think like you that having the right attitude makes all the difference to how we experience life :D

      Hi Venkata. I also believe in being positive, and you took an idea that could be so negative and gave it happiness and hope. More folks need to do that to make our world a better place. Thanks for sharing, and will pin. Blessings. Audrey

      I knew that it would be worth reading, but it surpassed my expectations. Thank you Venkatachari M, for being brave in the face of opposition. You have vanquished the negative Nay sayers. The paragraph with the bullet points says it all. Well done, and of course voted up. Great pleasure reading it.

      Very happy to see your comparing it with one more inspirational thought, Eric. It's true. We must always try to see the better side of it. Instead of saying that it is half empty, we must say it is half full. Very good recollection and citing. Thank you very much for this nice comment.
