Why Patience Is Highly Underrated Today

I went to a restaurant last week and I ordered from the menu and waited to be seated. I saw a group of people come in after me and ordered from the menu as well. While I was waiting in the dinning area the group that had ordered their food after me received their food before me. The one thing that I could not understand was how did I order before this group and how are they eating before me. At this time I was getting frustrated and angry. So I asked the waitress why is the group that ordered after me, eating before me? She said with a kind gentle voice, Sir the food you ordered is special and it will take sometime to prepare, but the group after you had ordered something simple and it was ready. When I finally received my food, it was everything that I had asked for. 


The notion of this story enlightened me to share it with you. We have become creatures of impatience today and we are all looking for short cuts. Could it be that what ever you want out of life is as special as the dinner I ordered from the menu? If so that will take time to prepare and receive. If you look around you and see people receiving what they want before you do, could it be what they wanted from their life was simple. We never look at our lives like this instead we work on something for 4 months and throw in the towel. We tell people that we tried it and it never worked out. While another person puts up a YouTube channel and only has 5 to 10 subscribers for 1 to 2 years and now has a million subscribers is told that luck was on their side. My question is why didn’t this person quit after the first year of not having any progress. The reason why most people break through obscurity is because they are willing to take the long route while most people want to take the short route.


So how can you and I learn from this type of patience? If we plan on starting anything worth while we must respect the process through patience and persistence. If there were 2 qualities I had to choose for my success it would be patience and persistence. Keep throwing something at the wall until something sticks. Give all of your valid effort to your ideas and actions and one day you will be the one with luck on your side. As always thank you for your time.
