Aggressive Patience – Again.

I have written about this before, but I personally need to hear it so I am going to write about it again.

I have written about this before, but I personally need to hear it so I am going to write about it again.

Aggressive patience.

Working your butt off each and every day like you will receive the benefit before you lay your head down to go to bed, but understanding that the best rewards are the ones you have to wait for.

Instant gratification does nothing for anybody. It tricks us.

However, when you are able to accept the fact that you will gain the most from that which you have to wait the longest, you will increase your chances of achieving what it is you wish to achieve.

Work urgently. Be patient.

Work like you have to get everything done today – but expect it in a month.

Construction sites are a great example of this. At a construction site the workers begin by laying a single brick – or propping up that first frame made by 2×4’s.

They know on the first day of construction that when they leave the job site, it won’t resemble anything close to what the final projection looks like. It won’t resemble the final product at all.

How often is there a construction site on your daily drive to work that you pass by twice – sometimes more – each day?

You play games in your head for a couple of months trying to guess what it will be before the building finally takes shape, right?

I know I personally do this.

Now think about the workers. They know the entire time what the project will look like when it is completed, don’t they?

Yet they are still content with leaving the construction site without so much as a brick laid on top of another. Why is this? It is because they practice such great patience. They know that the fruits of their labor will hardly be soon received. Yet they build, build, build, every single day – like they will leave the site with it complete.

It should be no different in your personal life.

*Again, I personally need to hear this, which is why I am writing about it – but I hope you enjoy it and get something from it as well.

You should attack every day like you are going to achieve all of your goals that very day.

Work like you are going to sign that 5 figure contract that day. Workout like you are going to lose 30 lbs that day. Write like you are going to finish the book that day. Paint like you are going to finish the portrait that day.

Keep all of this in mind.

Work urgently. Be patient.

Thanks.
