Episode #224: Cultivating Patience

Mar 09, 2023

Patience may be a virtue, but it doesn’t come easily to all of us. In fact, I count myself as an impatient person. But one thing that I’ve learned over my years of helping others grow their businesses (as well as growing my own!), is that patience is an absolutely essential entrepreneurial skill.

The key is that, as business owners, we need to learn to blend our patience with proactivity — this potent combination is what helps us to take action, and to give ourselves grace when our actions don’t always lead to the results that we desire!

When we hit the right balance between patience and productivity, we are less likely to fall victim to frustration, anger, resentment, and other negative emotions that can distract us from pursuing our real goals. As a bonus, hitting this balance can also help us to become the type of leader (and human being) that we want to be!

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • 3 areas in your business that make you feel impatient — and why waiting can be good for you
  • Why cultivating patience in regards to money in particular is crucial (and how to deal with dry spells!)
  • A real-life example of the need to blend patience and proactivity — and what can happen when you rush to react
