Before we proceed, let it be clear that this entry has nothing to do with the concept of patience, far from it. Rather, it is due to the misunderstanding of the word ‘patience’ that has gotten majority of the people on this unfortunate state of not achieving their desired success. Since young, we have been told that we need to study hard and be good at what we do then opportunities will eventually open up or magically present itself. The catch is that we have to be patient about it. How inaccurate that was, especially in this time and age.
True, we have to work hard and be very good at what we do. That never went away. However, the part where we should be waiting around to be ‘lucky’ enough to get chosen out of the countless people who like many, have done everything that they possibly could to be very good at what they do, needs a lot of rethinking. Scratch that. It is not applicable anymore and has been like so for a while now.
If you want something, you need to go ask for it. You could either do it subtly or bluntly. Most importantly, you need to let your intention be known to the right people. Only then can you have a fighting chance of ever getting closer to whatever it is that you want. So stop waiting around to get picked on. Get up and go get it.
