“I can’t wait … ”
“I don’t have time for … ”
Catch these phrases as you say them.
These phrases indirectly contribute to impatience.
Impatience is one of the from’s we are working on.
Remember: You have nothing but time!
Patience is a skill-it will NOT come naturally.
Everything good WILL happen IF you give it time:
The grass WILL grow again.
You WILL be the first in line.
She WILL have sex.
The red-light WILL turn green.
Your money WILL be together … again.
That person WILL shut up.
GIVE IT TIME!
Think of yourself as a Prisoner Of Patience.
Think before you speak.
Next time you are on the verge of saying one of those phrases, catch it and re-word it:
“I will not tolerate … ”
“I’m a busy man.”
Patience will also improve your foresight.
Often misquoted and it is no exception here: “If you build it (improve the from’s impatience and living for the moment), they will come (the to’s patience and foresight).”
