Have you ever tried something new and you expected immediate results that didn’t come? This is tough, so tough to handle! It’s like all the patience in the world disappeared and all the emotions overwhelm you. You want so much the outcome to be good that you want to do anything to make that happen, except for waiting.
I’m wondering why we don’t have any patience. Is it because we’re used to getting things almost instantly? For example, when you order something online you’ll probably receive that item next day. When you want to watch a movie, you search for in on the internet. When you want to talk to someone, you can instantly reach to that person with that magic box called phone. That wasn’t possible 100 years ago. People used to send letters to each other and it took weeks for that letter to go from one place to another. Were they as anxious as we are today? Were they anxious instantly or their patience ran out after a few weeks?
The hardest part for me was to wait for the results. I know what I have to do from a conscious point of view, but the anxiety is killing me. I want to see the results NOW, even though I know it can take months and lots of effort until that might happen. Maybe that’s the human nature, or maybe that’s how human nature is now. Or maybe that’s just me, but the waiting is… I hope you don’t know.
We’re getting used to instant and it reflects in almost any area of our lives. We want to be there before we even start the journey. We want NOW yesterday. And that’s not good because we’ll tend to quit before the results will show up. It’s like getting out of the oven a dish that hasn’t been cooked yet. That cannot be a good dish.
How do you deal with the lack of patience?
