Waiting feels terrible. But when we wait well, magic happens.
Growing, improving, changing doesn’t happen quickly. We know that.
But for some reason, we still get impatient and disappointed when it doesn’t happen when we want it to, which often means yesterday.
And we know that we must wait. But what we often fail to understand is that we mustn’t just wait.
For how we wait is what really matters.
Waiting well is key.
“Waiting” usually means we get antsy, we fidget, we get impatient. Then we start to wonder if this is worth it, and we begin to stray. And wondering becomes wandering. Before you know it, we’re completely off the path.
Instead, waiting well gives us poise as we do our daily routines, form new habits, learn new lessons. It knows that transformation doesn’t occur in a moment, but rather moment by moment by moment. It’s gradual, incremental.
Waiting well means resisting looking at the results but revels in the process. You’re not looking to make quick gains but gain a life long practice.
And thinking like that will transform your life.
Waiting well plays the long game.
And if you do that, you will win.
