I was told during childhood that the patient dog eats the fattest bone in life and so I understand that one will get nowhere without patience. But growing up, I came to meet a people who believed that the patient dog eats no bone at all, so everyone of them had to get on the fast lane in life and that is how they miss out of opportunities, and experiences they expected to see at the end of the tunnel because it was waiting for them along the way but they were too fast, so they could not recognize them even when they saw it. A lot of people are stranded in life, some are suffering, others are managing when they should be enjoying in life, because what they wanted they don’t have and what they needed they don’t have, so they are now in a situation they should not have been if they were a little more patient with things.
Patience will remain one of the greatest virtues in life, because it will take patience plus any other stuff to get what you want in life. In order words the ability to wait is the price you must pay to get anything you want from life. However, waiting is one big problem in life, people either don’t want to wait or they end up waiting for too long. But the truth remains, waiting is part of living that has come to stay because everything in life takes time. So you have to wait for your time and still wait for your turn. There is time for everything, but when you refuse to wait for it and move when you should have waited you may still get a consolation prize you don’t need or when you wait when you should have moved, you may have to wait for another chance. So if you cannot wait for something, you are only rushing for problems or wait too long you will be waiting for problems. But, the question is how long do we need to wait?
If it takes patience to get what you want from life, so you will have to wait for as long as it will take you to get what you want and as long as you need to get where you want to. However, it is what you do while you are waiting that determines what you will get at the end of the day. To some people it is time to sleep, others just remained idle and few other are just busy doing nothing, all of them without any anticipation of what they want because it is at the point of anticipation that you determine your next move because there is no point waiting or rushing for something you can’t have, that is not coming and that is not real.
Therefore, if you must move, it should be when it is time and not in a hurry. And if you must wait it should be for your time and your turn but it should not be for too long yet as long as it will take because true success and greatness are among the fattest bone in life and it takes a great deal of patience to attain them. So life will not give it to the fastest, the most beautiful, the strongest or the smartest but to the patient.
