I met an acquaintance once who had just been on a weekend seminar and was now pumped up and ready to take on the world.
Hot off the starting blocks she started to launch an ‘overnight success’ approach.
When the first ‘no’ arrived she gave up and switched to something else, only to repeat the same pattern.
We all come up against hurdles and we’ve also all got bigger pictures we want to actualize.
Yet how patient are we at playing the long game?
You working on something long term right now, like a degree, business, project, investment etc?
“Do not be impatient with your seemingly slow progress. Do not try to run faster than you presently can. If you are studying, reflecting and trying, you are making progress whether you are aware of it or not. A traveler walking the road in the darkness of night is still going forward. Someday, some way, everything will break open, like the natural unfolding of a rosebud.” (Howard)
What progress have you already made over time?
There is more to come.
