The Trick To Patience

“Patience Is Bitter, But It’s Fruit Is Sweet”*

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 books 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.

“The Two Most Powerful Warriors Are Patience And Time”*

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

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

It’s power is twofold. First of all, you take your mind off of what you’re waiting for. 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 wise use of your energy while you’re waiting for whatever you’re trying to be patient about to resolve.

“How People Treat You Is Their Karma; How You React Is Yours”*

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’re 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 Infinite Intelligence through The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind{<Free Copy} by Joseph Murphy, and a solution to your problems will come to you out of the blue.

Meditate and pray for help and guidance. Then peace, tranquility, and patience will be yours. Time will ease your pain while you wait for what took Edison over ten thousand attempts to harness, then …the light will come on.

Quotes – *Jean-Jacques Rousseau, *Leo Tolstoy, *Wayne Dyer

All the best, – Herb.
