Success and Patience

To succeed you must have patience.



According to Wikipedia, Patience (or forbearing) is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance/anger in a negative way; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is the level of endurance one can take before negativity. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast.

Patience is waiting. Not passively waiting. That is laziness. But to keep going when the going is hard and slow that is patience. – Unknown

There is a proverb that goes “all good things come to those who wait.” BUT I must add, waiting alone is not enough. Good things do not come to those who just wait. Good things come to those who wait, but who also actively do something about their situation while they are waiting.

Patience is not passive; on the contrary, it is active; it is concentrated strength. – Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

It has never been easy to be patient, but it’s probably harder now than at any time in history.We are able to send and receive messages instantly, we start a motor by just pushing a button, we have information available only with a few clicks of a mouse (and complain already when it takes 2 seconds instead of three LOL).

The keys to patience are acceptance and faith. Accept things as they are, and look realistically at the world around you. Have faith in yourself and in the direction you have chosen. – Ralph Marsdon

Anything worthwhile takes time to grow and mature. So, our patience is required to succeed. It is the nature of things and the law of time that you cannot immediately reap what and where you have sown.
Patience is the companion of wisdom. – St. Augustine



We all have to learn to be patient with ourselves. We are not perfect and we will make mistakes along the way. Understand that you are on the right track and headed in the right direction, however many mistakes and setbacks you may encounter on the way. And remember; don’t just look forward to and anticipate reaching your destination. Enjoy the journey too.

This is to YOUR Success!
