How To Be Patient

The Trick To Patience

Everyone nowadays seems to be in a hurry. This age of computers has spoiled us because when we want something, we want it now. But it is through patience that the war is won, the skills are mastered, and the book gets written.

Taking immediate action can be a powerful force indeed, but when you don’t think something through, it often leaves you with regrets, and gives an advantage to those who do their due diligence.

In business, we want the contracts signed, the deals closed, and the work done now. The faster, the better. Yet, like Benjamin Franklin said, “He that can have patience, can have what he will.”

In the investment world, time and time again, the markets have crashed under the weight of the herd mentality. Panicked, the masses sell their stocks at a loss. But those with a long term mentality ride through the storm on the road to wealth.

Patience demands a certain type of courage. Its strength lies in the perseverance that comes with dedication to an ideal or goal.

As Robert Browning put it, “Patience is the courage to change the things you can, the willingness to accept the things you cannot, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

But the trick to patience lies in taking action rather than passively killing time. To truly master patience, you must do something else that’s positive while you wait for time to pass.

In other words, if you’re waiting for a resolution in one area of your life that must take time to unfold, then work on improving another area of your life while you’re waiting.

It’s power is twofold. First of all, you take your mind off of what you’re waiting for to resolve. And second, you improve in other ways instead of just killing time worrying.

Fixate upon some worthy goals. Read some self-help books. Exercise and eat healthy. All of these are worthy of your energy and help you through life as you wait for whatever it is that you’re trying to be patient about.

How To Get Revenge

Ironically, this is also the best way to get vengeance, and deal with ignorant, frustrating people. Sometimes, we can’t just cut people or relatives out of our lives, so we must have faith that their time will come. The law of cause and effect will get them, and until it does, we can rise above them by improving ourselves.

Knowing where you are going in life greatly increases your tolerance level towards the annoying people and setbacks that stand between you and your goals. Just know that you are going to win the war eventually, even though others may win a battle or two along the way.

Remain positive as best you can, and the losers will fall by the way side long before your determination ever does.

Rise Above The Storm

Get in tune with the Infinite Intelligence through The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind*{<Free Copy} and a solution to your problems will just come to you out of the blue, so to speak.

Learn how to pray properly then peace, tranquility, and patience will follow. And time will ease the pain of life as you wait for what took Edison over ten thousand attempts to harness and …the light will come on.
