Reginald Nash I loved reading your response. And I appreciate the intellectual challenge! For your first question- short answer, no. One of the most confounding parts of life is when we do everything in right and we perceive as if we did not succeed. I think the big difference I want to point out is, it’s not always about “winning” the battle. It’s about winning the war. Patience helps us persevere through change. But patience is always a long-term strategy. It’s about discipline, persistence, perseverance and maintaining long-term patience. If you don’t get what you want, even when you feel you did everything, so what? Are you gonna quit? Or are you going to accept the result and work your darnedest to get better and achieve your desired outcome next time? That’s the mindset I want to live with.

On a case-by-case basis, we can’t “wait” forever. Patience to me is not about waiting. It’s a long-term strategy. It’s discipline, mixed with poise and executed with precision. Thank you for reading!!
