PATIENCE is a Virtue
With Enough Patience
We can Achieve Our Goals and Live Our Dreams
Ask Yourself These Questions
To Decide For Yourself If
Lack of Patience Is Controlling You
- Do I have the PATIENCE to allow my relationships to develop and change over time?
- Do I have the fortitude to persevere when my relationship struggles seem insurmountable?
- Can I tolerate and endure circumstances and interactions that are unloving and even hostile on the way to building long-lasting and fulfilling relationships?
- Do I have the unflappable, unswerving stamina to persist until the end, to not give up and to not give in to impatience?
If your goal is to improve the health of your body, it may take quite a while before you are finally eating healthy food, exercising regularly, getting adequate rest and sleep and maintaining a positive outlook. The key is to be patient with yourself and with well-meaning friends and family who sometimes sabotage your efforts to change into healthy eating habits. If your goals is to build a successful business, you may take many false steps that seem to set you back and cause you to start all over. With patience and a student/learning attitude you can learn from each setback and eventually reach your desired goals. And if your goal is to find and develop new relationships or to improve and even transform your current relationships, having patience will help you to see more clearly what is happening and make the most appropriate choices in each moment.
If You Decide You DO Have Patience
And You ARE Willing to Persist Against All Odds
Then You Must Ask Yourself Another Very Important Question
At What Point Does Being Patient Become Unhealthy
A Detriment to Your Own Health, Success and Well-being?
How long does your patience need to last? When is it that enough is enough and you need to move on? How many times must you forgive and overlook actions and behaviors of others that disturb your equilibrium? At what point are you sabotaging your own efforts to succeed in life by tolerating situations and emotional upsets that could be avoided?
There is not one answer that fits all people and all situations. Sometimes, patience over the long haul leads to an awakening at a much later point in time that could not have been predicted early on. And sometimes, many years later, your patience wears thin and you finally decide to break off a relationship that has not changed for months or years or even decades.

YOUR Patience has Reached Its Limit
And Enough is Enough?
