To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself.

Have a little patience

What you gain in an instant can be lost in an instant. Have a little patience, invest in the long term, and create real value that lasts.

Be thankful that the good things take time to build. The time and energy you give are what make the good things worth having.

When you demand to have every desire met immediately, you end up with a whole lot of anxiety and frustration. Have a little patience, allow life to unfold at a rich and sustainable pace, and enjoy fulfillment as it is created.

Hurrying deprives you of living. The point of life is to live it fully, not to rush through every little part.

Take a deep, slow breath, and remind yourself how fortunate you are already. Remind yourself too that being patient and composed is much more effective than being nervous and restless.

Today, in these circumstances, and every day, in every circumstance, have a little patience. And enjoy a rich, rewarding life.

— Ralph Marston
