Patience is the attitude that keeps you focused as you move toward your goal. One of the greatest enemies to success is distraction, which is a tendency to leave the lane because you maybe bored with the journey. Patience keeps you in the lane.
When your internals voices are screaming for you to quit Patience is the voice that tells you to stay and wait. Reaching success is a great event, many will celebrate with you when you get there. But the journey can be lonely and boring. And the tendency to end it is always present and so is patience. Patience is the attitude that motivates you to be consistent.

Now I want to challenge you to develop patience. Where do you see yourself in exactly one year from today? Patience moves toward vision. Once you get a vision for the next twelve months now plan your journey to get there. Set goals for every month for the next twelve months and then everyday make sure that you are doing and reaching your goals. By sticking with daily and weekly goals you’ll reach your monthly goals and eventually your one year vision will be accomplished. Don’t rush the process though, be patient. Have a long attitude.
Benjamin Franklin said, “He that can have patience can have what he will.”
Be patient. You’ll get there.
