Having the patience to simply wait for what one wants is the habit of a seldom few in today's world.
It's not easy to be patient since all of us tend to be in a great hurry to get to where we want to go in our life spans.
There is no shortcut to the mountain top.
Those mountain climbers looking to climb Mount Everest must start right at the bottom and then make their way to the top day by day.
They cannot simply fly to the top and claim that they climbed the mountain.
Patience is indeed a great virtue to possess in modern life.
Great things happen to those prudent and wise enough to sit down and calmly wait for it to come right into one's arms.
Don't confuse the patience I talk about here with laziness.
Both are very different things.
Laziness is purely sitting down and doing nothing. Which often leads to the habit of putting off doable things till tomorrow.
Patience on the other hand is the wisdom of waiting for the good things to come your way after having done whatever was needed to be done on your part.
For example, a patient farmer plants the seeds, adds the manure, waters the plants and then simply waits for the crops to grow.
This is patience.
Good things always tend to come to those who have the power to wait for it to come their way.
Let things happen in your life, go with the flow, don't be in a great big hurry to get somewhere.
Go through the needed steps, do what's needed, put your dreams into action, and then just wait for the fruits of your efforts to bloom.
