How to be more patient

self talk matters

Let’s talk about being more patient. We’ve already discussed how success takes time. That generally deals with financial success.

But it also includes health and relationships. You can’t expect to get the body you want overnight. You have to put time into your health.

The same goes with relationships since you build the best relationships with quality time. You want to be a good parent? Spend quality time with your kids because that’s what they’ll talk about at your funeral. You want to be a good lover? Spend quality time with your lover because that’s what they’ll remember.

“What does this have to do with being more patient?”

Everything. You’ll end up turning these good qualities into habits so you don’t even notice you’re doing them. Eating right is a habit. Remembering to exercise is a habit. Routinely taking money out of your pay and putting it into investments is a habit.

Develop the right habits and you won’t even notice that you’re becoming more patient. I know that may sound weird to you now, but it’s very much true.

On the flip side

If you start developing the wrong habits, you’ll become less patient. Constantly giving in to your hunger will ruin your health. You’ll look in the mirror and become frustrated with the results because there will be no positive results.

Constantly spending money on stupid shit will ruin your net worth. That’s money that should have gone to the future you, not some stupid impulse. Then, you’ll become more impatient. You may even be that guy who lashes out at successful people because how come they’ve got money and you don’t, despite you making more money than they do?

You see what I mean? Develop the right habits and you’ll be more patient. Develop the wrong habits and you’ll get impatient and possibly angry and bitter.

About the featured image

I shot this on the coast in Marin County, California. Take your lover on a day trip and slow down, and just walk and appreciate the world’s beauty. Don’t have a lover? Go with good friends instead.

If you have kids, by all means take them because they’ll talk about those magical moments at your funeral. It may not seem like a big deal at the time, but I’ve been to enough funerals to know what the kids talk about.
