FRIEND, was there ever a time in your life when you felt stuck?
When your life was bogged down with no way to move forward?
What did you do?
Well, most of us respond with frustration and anger, whether it's a car in the mud, a life put on hold or a relationship on the rocks.
When we get frustrated, most of us reduce our options to one: force.
So we jam our foot on the accelerator and lunge ahead with all our might. And succeed only in digging a deeper hole.
However, there is another way to handle the obstacles in our lives, and that is to have the patience to keep trying something different.
Friend, patience involves courage ‹ the courage to back off, to keep looking for a more creative solution to the problem.
Patience means you can, and you will, endure whatever you must to accomplish your task.
Patience means you will not allow any frustration to deprive you of reaching your goal.
One day, an assistant came to Thomas Edison, discouraged at his lack of progress on a research problem.
"How often have you tried?" asked Edison.
"At least two thousand times," the assistant explained.
"Well, don't give up now," said Edison. "You have already found two thousand ways in which it cannot be done."
Comte de Buffon said "Never think that God's delays are God's denials. Hold on; hold fast; hold out. Patience is genius."
