“The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it.”
People nowadays expect immediate results without having faith in the process. Patience in business or in life does not imply inaction. It entails not becoming frustrated or angry if your desires are not met immediately. Success does not happen overnight; it takes time. Impatience causes stress, bad decisions, and a loss of control. Be composed and calm as you go about your life and achieve your goals. We must comprehend things that take time. We must trust the process.
