There is more than one inning; you have to be in it for the long haul. It’s all about the long game, don’t be in such a hurry…

All these sayings about patience, and while they all make sense, it’s still frustrating.

When is it your turn at bat?

The correct answer is who knows. All my mentors, (people whom I deem successful, while contrasting on many things, such as industry, things they do for leisure and varying backgrounds, political views and ethnicity) have something in common. (run on, lost me on who you were talking about)

They practice patience!

You have to be patient. Well easy for you to say I mean I’m past the age of getting a Lamborghini with my first piece of success but I am ready to make some move. If not for the money then just for the simple fact of building a legacy by helping and adding value to people. I’m just ready to be a playmaker.

Reminds me of the story of the old bull and the young bull which goes something like

High on top of a mountain there stood an old bull and a young bull.Both of them were leering at the young heifers down in the valley quite a distance away.The young bull was snorting, huffing and puffing, pacing back and forth, etc.Finally, after a while, the young bull said…“Say, why don’t we run down this mountain and have our way with one of them?”The old bull pondered for a moment, smiled, leaned over, and calmly said…“Why don’t we walk down the mountain and have our way with all of them!”

Alas, it’s all about the long game. We should wait we should wait, and humbly at that.

I think the overall strategy should be that we stay ready for our opportunity and be prepared. Impatience comes from being young and ambitious. We should allow ourselves this time to be prepared from the stress of the opportunity when it presents itself so that we can maximize our effort with the urgency and intensity that is called for.

What do you think?
