Patience and persistence

If you need something tomorrow your choices are starkly limited. If you desire something in ten years it can be pretty much anything you imagine.

The most desirable results are not immediate results. The most desirable results ask for patience and persistence in return.

Are you disappointed by the choices you have right now? Step back and consider how much better your choices would be if you were to add some patience and persistence.

Patience gives you the serenity of knowing that good things take time. Persistence gives you the energy to continue putting forth effort until you reach your objective.

You cannot instantly jump over to the other side of the mountain. Yet with patience and persistence you can climb up, then climb down, and arrive on the other side.

What particular forms of goodness do you wish to add to life? With patience and persistence they are well within your reach.

— Ralph Marston
