Virtuous Qualities – Patience

Patience is enduring a delay or troublesome situation without complaining. When you are patient you remain calm and tolerant when difficult things happen. When you are impatient your irritability doesn’t hurry things along, in fact it just makes people feel uncomfortable.

Accept that some things take time. Acceptance will help you to feel peaceful as you are waiting. Be gentle with yourself and others when you make a mistake. Mistakes only mean that you are still learning. As long as remain learning you are a developing human being and you are planting the seeds of success.

You know you are patient when:

· You remain calm during an inevitable delay

· You create goals for yourself and see them through

· You are gentle with others and yourself when you make a mistake

· You have faith that things will turn out alright in the end.

I like this Chinese quote:

If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.
