Words of Wisdom | More on Patience

patience quote

We are focused on patience so much lately (you may remember our last 'Words of Wisdom' post here was also on patience) because it has been a challenge. To have more patience we must practice being patient. It's like a muscle, the more you use it the stronger it gets. There is no way around it. It takes time and effort and plenty of determination. Often times it seems that those left standing are those that kept at it year-in and year-out. Becoming an eminence in your field is more about patience and determination than about intelligence. We sure learn from this wise and patient elephant.  I just wonder, what does he want to do with that ant? Eat it? It's so small.....hmmm....Prove that he could do it? Why?

What virtues are you battling with?
