Patience multiplies your efforts

You’re eager to get it now, finish it now, know it now. Yet there’s a very good chance you could benefit from a little patience.

It’s great you’re so enthusiastic, and have such a powerful sense of urgency. Just remember though, that good things can take time.

Give the good things in your life the time they deserve. Allow for the time that will make those good things far better than anything you could achieve in an instant.

Take a breath, slow your racing mind and hyped-up expectations. Savor what you’re doing, sink peacefully into the moment that is, and avoid speeding ahead too fast.

Don’t compromise the quality of your entire future just to get what you want right now. Give the goodness you seek the time it needs to be the best it can be.

Patience multiplies your efforts far beyond what they could otherwise achieve. Give yourself, and your patience, plenty of time and space to bring new richness to life.
