The Importance of Patience
Definition of Patience :the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious
Just recently I discovered myself how important and vital patience is to success. I am sure you have at times felt frustrated and found it difficult to know what to do and how to behave in certain situations and at certain times.
I had a very important decision to make over the last week, one which could be potentially life changing for me. I was presented with a new business venture which initially I was very excited about but as I, researched more I discovered a few flaws.
I spoke to trusted friends about the problems I was encountering and asked the universe for guidance with this. I could get no answers from either source. I realised then that I must be patient and wait for the answer to come and this was for me the biggest challenge, I am not usually very patient at all and want everything now .. but one must learn I know that.
The frustration grew in me and I became upset and had no idea which way I should take this. I knew the pressure was on me to make a decision but I was unable to come to one. I had a strong intuitive feeling that I should back out and that was worrying me as my intuition is not usually wrong. So I waited and waited until I could bear it no more. I decided to go out and think of something else completely different and see some friends. That night I went to bed and asked again for help with this and in the morning I was speaking to a dear friend and they showed me how to find the answer. I followed what they had said and within three hours of more research I had my decision and my answer.
From then on everything began to flow again and things began to move forward for me.
Sometimes when things feel stuck and progress seems thwarted we need to surrender to it and allow things to manifest in their own time, this in turn allows the information to come to us and in the correct format and manner too.
I just wanted to share that with you as I know we all go through similar things like this and it can be very challenging. I cannot stand to feel helpless and that is precisely how this situation made me feel.
Looking back over the last few days I can now see the importance of waiting and acting at the correct time. We always speak of ‘Diving Timing’ and this was a perfect example of that. If I had acted too soon I would have never reached the conclusion I came to, and I may have missed out on a great opportunity. By the way, the answer that I received was not a ‘yes or a ‘no’ , I was simply shown a different way of dealing with it and I was guided to take a different approach.
I say to you all out there who are going through difficult times or have challenging decisions to make, try as much as you can to firstly surrender to the outcome, ask for help and do not stop searching yourself as the universe needs to see you are also taking some action towards finding your answers. If they are not coming, just wait, and have faith and trust that you will be shown the correct way forward for you, do not rush it. The universe is never wrong and timing is never out. It is our human impatience which forces us at times to make incorrect and rash choices and decisions.
