They say patience is a virtue!
Let’s see here is what the dictionary says, Patient: content to wait if necessary. Now lets see what they have to say about impatience: lack of patience.
So I guess impatience more or less means you are not content waiting, Right?
Let me explain why I bring this subject up here today.
First off if you know me you then know I have been concentrating most of my time working with my team.
I have been doing all I can to help them all get their foundations set up as well as their websites built, yet a few team members still feel some restraint so to say in moving forward.
I have always been a pretty patient person, yet I still have always wanted things done like yesterday and most of my team members are not conforming to my expectations.
Does this make sense?
Waiting for things to materialize had never been my strong suite.
Impatience About The Little Things
Yes I believe it is the little things that bothered me the most.
I did put together some training video’s for everyone to follow to try to free up some of my time,yet I still feel the need to go over everything with each of them personally.
I feel this is just good practice so they know the drill when they start building their teams.
Well I have done this multiple times over the past few months and impatience is setting in and I am starting to get frustrated.
What am I learning is that I have no control over what others will or will not do, my expectations are often out of sync with reality.
We cannot build for others. We can help but we cannot make others do what they do not want to do.
I cannot control everything! Impatience is not the answer.
Impatience Started A Thought Process And This Triggered Action
You see impatience wasn’t the reason at all!
I came to the realization that this unpleasant feeling just motivated me to change the way I respond to these people that are not ready to move forward at the pace I set for them.
There is no need to get frustrated about anything, I just needed to take control of the situation and let others go at their own pace on their own time.
I had to let go of my need to control everything and just focus on what I need to do and take the necessary steps to keep moving forward.
Remember the next time you see that impatience is setting in and you find yourself getting frustrated just remember that this is simply an indication that you have a conflict with something that is going on.
All you really need to do is to think it over and then to come up with a solution on what you can do about it.
Yep this is just a thought, your belief that you have to wait to get to the next level, don’t let this stop you, keep moving forward.
Believe in yourself and change your thought process, start looking at things with a different perception, this is going to make you feel better and you will be on your way to getting exactly what you want.
As I am writing this another thought just came to me.
Could this impatience of mine be yet another fear?
Perhaps I had this fear of failing once again.
Yes Perhaps, but I have learned we cannot let our fears come into play with our goals. Don’t Let Fear Stop You From Reaching Your Goals
This was one of my last posts in case you missed this, you can click over and check it out here.
What are your thoughts on impatience?
Is it a bad thing?
Or perhaps this just makes us stronger because it makes us take a deeper look with in ourselves.
Please let me know what your views on this subject.
Once again I am learning, learning. learning more about myself and therefore I will better able to help serve others.
Get clear on what it is you want to do and do not let impatience stop you from reaching your goals! You need to be content with where you are Period!
I Wish You All A Great Easter Sunday!
