The thing is, patience definitely has it's good points. No one wants to be a whiny, impatient person who wants everything NOW! But patience can have it's down side as well. If all you are doing is waiting for something to happen - someone to pick you, winning the lottery, getting on Oprah's show - you are setting yourself up for disappointment.
Think of it this way: you can be active or passive and patient or impatient. That's leaves you four possibilities:
Impatient & Active - Now you want something and will do anything to make it happen. This ambition is better. You might make friends but they will probably be opportunistic and more interested in what you can do for them.
Patience & Passive - You're waiting patiently for all the good things to happen, but you're really hiding behind your fears. Now sitting around serves as a handy excuse to not facing your uncertainty.
Patient & Active - Patience combined with disciplined action, and it's looks much different. You're putting in the hard work and moving towards a purpose. Now people might go out of their way to help you out.
The best things come to those who choose themselves, stick with the work, and patiently keep getting better over time.
Stop waiting - it's not doing you any favors. Make sense of what's going on and decide on what you can take action on TODAY. Then, go and do that, TODAY! Keep taking purposeful action, patiently, and you'll be far better off than those who are still waiting for their best things to come.
