Watch enough of the World Cup games and you will see the winning teams play till the last minute, the last second. The players show a nice combination of patience and perseverance, never giving up. For many of us watching we all want them to go harder, to push more for a goal. But in fact patience, in this context, gives them a much better chance of winning. Either they drive to the winning goal or they make sure the competition does not score. Remember, patience is not about waiting; it’s the ability to keep a positive attitude while working hard for what you believe in (or your objective is). It’s the willingness to stay focused, confidently taking one step at a time, knowing that the way you improve performance (or win a game in this instance) comes one step, one shot at a time. Every step that you take, no matter how small, is progress.
Herein, the THPL message is strong and thus we can apply this (patience) approach to all that we do. The question is can we dig deep enough to make sure that patience becomes our ally, our secret weapon. It really is up to us to see how this plays out. Best of luck with your patience……
Loving life, and being ok waiting.
