Good things come to those who wait. And that is the problem. Because you know something good awards you for your patience, you develop the impatient desire of an eager beaver. If good things come to those who wait, the reverse is equal: Only bad things can come to those who are impatient. So, the trick, is to play The Waiting Game. You play The Waiting Game when you think the opposite of the phrase: Only bad things can come to those who wait. The next time you put yourself in a position testing your patience, think negative of the response, don’t expect nothing in return, then take your mind off the process of waiting with a nice distraction. Then when you are finally rewarded you will be pleasantly surprised.
