Patience doesn't always come easily. It takes practice.

"Patience cannot be acquired overnight. It is just like building up a muscle. Every day you need to work on it." ~ Eknath Easwaran

What would more patience do for you? For your family? For your business results?

Now is the best time of year to remind yourself of the value of patience. Practice while you're hung up in traffic, waiting in the check out line, or waiting for a table at a restaurant. Use your waiting time wisely.

When in traffic, revel in music or listen to self-development audio. When in the check out line or at a restaurant, why not network a little? Your next client might be waiting in line just ahead of you!

"Patience and tenacity are worth twice the weight of cleverness." ~ Thomas Huxley


Next time you find your patience waning, why not try a smile? What better time than the holidays to practice your smile. It's your opportunity to pass on your good cheer to a total stranger. When you're smiling, the whole world does smile with you!

"If we could look into each others' hearts and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care."~ Marvin J. Ashton
