Are you convinced that the key reason of failure is rather the rushing, pushing, and running decisions we can make? Most of the heart hurting problem of this world could be solved if we excise patience in accomplishing our dreams. “The key to everything is patience; you get the chicken by hatching the egg—not by smashing it” [Arnold Glasgow]. Nathan Watson mused, “Trust your mind to think with time; patience is the key.”
A Dutch Proverb declares, “An ounce of patience is worth a pound of brains.” Jackie Sagner wrote, “It just goes to show that if you don’t fine success in one area, have patience and you will find it in another!” You will get no where if you are in the habit of speeding without considering the patience you need to do a perfect job. Sir. Isaac Newton said, “If I have made any valuable discoveries, it has been owing more to patient attention than to any other talent.”
The true achievements of a person can be seen by how careful they are not by hurry you can get things to be done. A Chinese Proverb asserts, “One moment of patience may ward off great disaster. One moment of impatience may ruin a whole life.” John Quincy Adams said, “Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.” Bump up the speed of your life, what ever speed you taught was better of promoting your mental picture, add patience to help attain a good result.
Edmund Burke said, “Our patience will achieve more than our force.” The greater trouble you can cause for yourself is to ultimately give yourself a speed that will provide you no excellent result. In a Ghanaian magazine, The Cry, April – May edition 2007, Page 9, I read: “A Frenchman sent 4,872 letters to a woman asking her to marry him. She finally accepted his proposal but they got divorced after 11 months.” Is this what happens when you do not apply patience to a life time investment? If you escape one moment to apply patience, 100% of disaster awaits you.
Barbara Johnson said, “Patience is the ability to idle your motor when you feel like stripping your gear.” After inventing the light bulb, Albert Einstein was bold to confess by saying, “It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problem longer.” Take this advise, “The more patience we are, the more understanding we become” [William Arthur Word, from Trust for Living].
