Patience and Persistence Are Part of the Formula For Success
I have often wondered why some people are successful and others are not. Patience is a key ingredient of success. Being patient does not mean standing back and waiting for things to happen by themselves. Being patient is analyzing the situation and making an educated decision on what move to make next.
Do not make an abrupt decision.
Do not make an abrupt decision without first looking at the big picture. Take in the facts, analyze them make your decision. There has to be a decision made so do not keep putting it off. Patience is a key not procrastination.
Once the decision is made stick with it and see it through. Be persistent in attaining your goal. You may sway a bit back and forth but get back on track with your initial decision. Remember, you made the decision for a reason. Trust your instinct and forge ahead. Do not second guess yourself after the decision is made.
As you forge ahead fine tune your actions, do not deviate too far from the path. You will be bombarded by external pressures, forces and differing opinions. Keep the focus and be persistent. Others will always question you and be ready for it. Do not feel you have to justify what you are doing to everyone. Yes, you do need support but remember you made the decision for a reason. The outside forces do not know your reasoning as you know something others do not know.
Trust your own judgment, be confident in the process and most of see the project through. Do not stop halfway, unless of course you have uncovered some additional information. The path is a process and sometimes the process has to be adjusted. Be sure you have a good reason if you are going to deviate.
Be patient in the process and you will reach your goal. Enjoy the journey, have some fun and you will reap the benefit of success. Success does not have to be financial but could simply be self satisfaction. There is nothing like gaining self confidence, self esteem and most of all finish with a smile on your face.
Be a leader and not the follower.
Success will follow and people will want to follow you. Be a leader and not the follower. Good luck in your journey and may patience be with you. Good things do not come by easy and by being persistent you will reach the point of satisfaction.
