If you can’t see your front door from the street because something is blocking the view then that something is literally blocking you from all the good opportunities waiting to find you. Plus it blocks good energy from entering your home to help and support you.
Now how can opportunities knock if they can’t find your door?
Typically, it is a tree planted smack dab in front of the front door like this picture but there are other culprits such as shrubs, boulders and decorative walls. It is best to have a clear and smooth path all the way from your front door to the street. This goes for homes as well as businesses.
Doors are often overlooked and not maintained but this blog could make you look at your doors differently. Doors create change. You open and close them to get from one room to another, changing your environment. Here are some tips to maintaining your doors.
Refresh/maintain your front door to boost your Career.
Clean all your door handles w/1 part vinegar and 2 part water to create change.
Grease any squeaky door hinges to reduce whining or arguments.
Make sure all the hardware is in good working order (hinges, handles, locks, etc.). If your front door has parts that are not working then your Career is not working or you are literally not working.
An ill maintained landscape of your home or business conveys that the people inside are ill maintained and for a business it conveys that clients are ill maintained. A poorly maintained landscape says the below about your business so before your clients even enter your building you are imprinting negativity on them which could be the source of not having repeat customers or high staff turnover, both affecting your reputation negatively.
* Flower beds are crowded with weeds, other plants taking root or overgrown shrubs = money and clients will have trouble finding your business or will just turn away
* Flower beds and sidewalks are not edged = boundaries will be crossed
* Trash not picked up on a daily bases = conveys that you don’t care enough about your business so how can you begin to care about your clients
All of this will cause similar issues with homes, just replace "clients" with "opportunities" and look what you could be missing out on!
Maintain or care for your lawn/landscaping and you will give your reputation an instant boost!
Many use the door to their home that is closest to their garage more than their actual front door. I even heard someone say that their front door was only for guests - not so!
Your front door is the Career section of your home and when you neglect your door, your Career will neglect you. Overlook your front door and you will be overlooked at work.
The element for the Career section is water. Some examples are: actual water (fountain or vase), art depicting water, glass or plastic.
So go use your front door and add a water element to give your Career a boost!
