Life and patience

Indeed, patience matters in life. Without patience, one cannot achieve their dreams. The importance of patience should be realized by every individual. Patience in life can make them reach out for the successes. Although life is not about living in the future or in the past, life is all about accepting the present moment. 

Whenever we are in any sort of trouble, people often advise us to have patience. Instead of advising about fine solutions, do they ask us to stay calm and be patient? In this techno-savvy world, most of us have forgotten to be patient but get irritated very quickly over minor things like a traffic jam, stock market ups and downs, and babies crying. Ideally, patience is the real virtue that everybody must possess because it makes us better human beings when it comes to living a deep meaningful life. 

Personally, when I go through the flashback memory of my life, I come across some of the good and bad experiences. Above all, I had patience in those days. To be sure, sometimes waiting for the right moment is important. So, this young generation needs to learn that patience matters in relationships, job fulfillment, self confidence and for a skillset because these things take some time when it comes to developing, nurturing, bonding, learning, and recognizing. To quote Edmund Burke, “Our patience will achieve more than our force.” Therefore, we should live with patience in life. 

Interestingly, if we are impatient to get what we want, we can easily make bad decisions in order to get the desirable goals quicker, right? However, the interesting fact is that our life does not moved ahead as per our wishes. After all, we need to see things and situations in a positive light to make our life happier. And, to get that positivity, we need to be patient. If you find any life situation challenging or find it difficult to bear, try to re-frame that situation and try to see its positive aspects. 

We should be patient if we need clear knowledge about our goals. To the best of my knowledge, there are many ways to achieve anything. The only trick is to stick to our action plans when others seem to be getting ahead much faster than us. Of course, they may be enjoying more successes than us, but we should believe in ourselves. 
Finally, patience is an important tool in overcoming hindrance. Patience allows us to suspend judgments long enough to make informed decisions, thus paving the path to a happy and peaceful life.
