I often took my children fishing when they were young. It is a wonderful way to teach children about patience. Adults can learn a thing or two as well. When you are fishing, you cast your line, and then wait. The fish bite in their own time. There isn’t one thing you can do to speed up the process. You wait or quit.
Waiting is hard especially when you are experiencing a difficult situation. Sometimes we find ourselves wanting to do something when the situation calls for patience and perseverance.
Often, being forced to wait can be beneficial if we use it to meditate, contemplate, and reflect. Time is a wonderful ally to those who have the kind of inner strength that empowers them to quietly work within themselves, while sticking to the path they have charted.
There will be times when others think you are literally bat shit crazy for not giving up and doing something that may yield faster results. I know all about that. I set out on this path many years ago. There have been times when I didn’t know where my next meal would come from.
All I have ever really known was that I was called to the path and couldn’t leave it. I knew that no matter how hard things got I would make it because it is what I was ordained to do. All the hardships are simply a part of the process, a special kind of on the job training.
No, I did not come into this world, “TalibahAset: The Money Metaphysician.” I did come into the world with all the gifts, talents, and abilities that would eventually become “The Money Metaphysician.”
They were so deeply hidden at one point; you wouldn’t have even seen a glimpse of what I am today. The Money Metaphysician was born from hardships and patience. I had to learn to persevere, to bend time, and keep a positive attitude.
If you also learn to persevere, bend time, and keep a positive attitude you will find that even the toughest obstacles must give way to time.Tweet
If you also learn to persevere, bend time, and keep a positive attitude you will find that even the toughest obstacles must give way to time. When we rush a thing, impatiently forcing the results, we stimulate resistance and cause the very setbacks we are trying to avoid. At best you will succeed on the surface, and at worst have the whole project blow up in your face.
It is steadfastness, holding to your integrity in the face of obstacles, criticisms, loss, or whatever life might toss your way that will lead you to the permanent improvements you truly desire. In the end, it’s patience that will bring to you the fruition of your greatness. Be focused. Be determined. And BE PATIENT.
Peace, Power, and Prosperity
