This proverb, speaks a lot of truth. Good Teachers are important to us. They can help shape our lives. They can also be detrimental to our lives, like any authority figure.
They teach us! They instruct us! They guide us!
Teachers open the doors, but you must enter by yourself. — Chinese Proverb
But, They Don’t Do Stuff for Us. Nor should they. It is up to use to enter the doors they open for us.
This Quote of the Day is part of the Opportunity Theme shared by Richard Branson. What do teachers opening doors have to do with opportunity? Haven’t you ever heard the saying, “Opportunity Knocks”?
There are thousands of quotes and sayings about what to do when opportunity knocks. But this quote doesn’t talk about opportunity coming to knock at your door, or you knocking at opportunity’s door. This quote is telling you that Teachers OPEN THE DOOR FOR YOU! It also let’s you know that you must enter by yourself. Know one can make you cross the threshold.Teachers open the doors, but you must enter by yourself. -- Chinese Proverb Click To Tweet
I’ve had many teachers through the years, in elementary, high school, college, martial arts and other areas. All have taught me great things. However, none of them have taken me through the door. I had to enter on my own and with the lessons I learned, apply them to get to where I am today.
Do you go through the doors that your teachers have open? Or do you just sit on the couch and look out the open door and wonder what it would be like to walk through the door
