I kind of trained my brain from an early age to know that sometimes doors are closed for a reason. You just have to be brave to accept it, and you may not know why but at some point you'll know why. And I think that if you believe that, and I do believe, that if you try and stay positive there's something out there for everyone. You just have to believe that, and otherwise this business is going to kill you and you won't sleep at night!
