We all understand the concept of patience but it can be difficult to define. In essence, patience is the ability to control your emotions, to wait without becoming anxious, annoyed or frustrated. It is recognizing that waiting is not always a negative but that patience, is, as we all know, a virtue.
It is the ability to visualize the larger picture and understand that the results you are hoping to achieve will materialize if you discard the urge to rush in. Choose to practice well-conditioned restraint.
Learning to harness the power of patience can be an important step in self-motivation.
