Remember when you would were a kid and wanted something really really bad?
Like so bad you needed it now? Temper tantrum in the middle of a supermarket over a candy bar bad?
I’m guessing we were all like that in some way or another.
Whether we wanted a new toy in a store, food, being held, or whatever it might have been, we all probably threw a temper tantrum a few times. Whatever we wanted at the moment, it was probably worth crying over.
Think about the present or even in the past where you wanted something so bad. Maybe not throw a tantrum in a toy store bad, but you wanted this thing bad.
It might be a better job, boat, house, computer, or whatever. Wanting stuff is great, don’t get me wrong I want new stuff all the time.
But here’s the thing, great things especially the really great things in life, takes time.
The truly great things which appear in our lives take some time to come fruition.
Whatever it is you want right now probably isn’t going to be a reality in a day, month, year, or even possibly a few years.
It’s all about being patient.
Now it’s not sit and stare at the wall type of patient, but daily progress towards your dream or goal type of patient.
And let me tell you, I’m not a patient person. When I want something, especially something like a a big goal I set for myself, I want it now.
I don’t want to wait.
But, that’s when it gets so much better.
Because if we just got everything we wanted right away, there would be no real satisfaction towards the thing we want.
The journey, tough lessons, all the wins and losses mixed into our life and one day we eventually achieve our goal is what makes it all so worth it.
I’ve been learning to become more patient about what it is I want. Really not expecting a lot to happen right away.
Most things just need time added to the equation and one day the thing you’ve always wanted will be there at your doorstep.
Anything we want will take time. Nothing great happens overnight.
Thanks and Be Great,
