The Waiting Game

I am not a patient person. It is something I struggle with on a daily basis. Good things come to those who wait, right? So I should just wait until right moment to hit me? I don't think so.

I had this revelation a couple of weeks ago -- I heard a woman speak who ran a very successful auto dealership group/ movie theater / sports team / race car track with her husband. (FYI, loaded!) Anyway, she talked about patience and she said something that will never leave me.

"Patience is not just about waiting. It's about actively moving your life in the direction you want it to go and putting off your immediate desire to reach that goal."

Now, that's not an exact quote because I didn't have a tape recorder, but that's what I wrote down. The point is, the old saying about good things coming to those who wait should be changed to. 'Good things come to those who work hard for their dreams and have the patience to fulfill them.'

Hang in there! (*notes to self*) Keep working at it and eventually all that patience will pay off. It's worth it!
