Harry Houdini was a famous twentieth-century escape artist. He claimed he could quickly free himself from any confining enclosure.
A group of people offered Houdini a challenge. They locked him up in a rural
jail cell and challenged him to escape.
Once in the cell, Houdini removed a strong but flexible piece of metal from
under his belt. Using the piece of metal he worked hard for 90 minutes to free
himself, with no positive results. Frustrated, he labored another 90 minutes,
with no success. By now he was soaked in sweat. Totally exhausted, Houdini fell
against the door. To his utter surprise, the door opened. It was never locked -
except in his mind.
There are some barriers in life that strain and stress cannot remove. Try
believing that all the doors in life you will need to open will open for you.
