LifestyleMotivationalPracticing Patience Can Help You Be SuccessfulBy Harman Posted on April 12, 20185 min read00242Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on Google+Share on LinkedinSometimes we see the nature around us and we observe that there are many lessons that we can learn from nature. One of the key lessons is patience. We see it everywhere in nature. Right from the river slowly cutting its way through rocks to the trees patiently growing to their mighty statures, patience can be seen everywhere in nature. This patience can be very rewarding and we can see that with the example of the tree itself. From a sapling needing care, a plant can grow into a mighty, selfless tree within a span of a few months. We also see this trait in butterflies. If their patience in the cocoon is interrupted, the larva of the butterfly is not able to survive the harsh environment and its wings are never able to have that strength.Source“Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is ‘timing’, it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles, and in the right way,” said Fulton J. Sheen and his words echo through the times and still hold weight in today’s times. Another proverb says that ‘all good things come to those who wait.’ While another one says that ‘Rome was not built in a day.’ There must have been some experience by some wise men that backs up all these proverbs. A little patience can help you go a long way and the little patience inside you can prove itself to be greater than any obstacle on the outside.1. Take One Step at a Time:SourcePatience is not some divine quality that you have to possess. It is just taking one step at a time and it can be developed and honed with hard work if practiced with perseverance and consistence. Keep an eye on the big goals and never lose focus of what you want to achieve but go through the process with a little patience and watch the magic unfold into success.2. Quiet your Mind:SourceA cluster of thoughts all going through your mind at the same time can not only confuse you but can also make you lose focus. Practice meditation and take control of your thoughts. Do not over think any small thing and make a big issue out of it. Impatience with small things can make you go off-track and make all your hard work a futile effort.3. Accept things you can’t change:SourceThere are many things in life that you will come across and there will be situations that you have no control over. Accept them as they are instead of fretting over them or losing your mind over them. Mould your lifestyle to your situations and adapt to the change. After all, the species that adapts the most survives the longest.
