Patience vs Wisdom


I love how memes can paint the perfect picture!!!

A little patience will take you far in life. In this 'must have it now mindset,' a lack of patience can often lead to our greatest demise. True "Success" does not happen overnight. It takes discipline, work ethic, and diligence. What is gained along the way with the patience of maturing in a venture is wisdom.

Jump in and learn as much as you can when beginning a new adventure but also listen to the wisdom of those who've travelled before you. Allow time for your growth and greater understanding. Learn from the masters in your field to enable your path to be just a little bit straighter.


Success can be defined in many ways but for me nothing spells success more than setting a personal vision and accomplishing it.

It is personal and not communal. It is a reward from the inside out rather than acclaim and fortune. However you decide may you achieve the success you seek. 💝

This is from my devotional this morning and how appropriate to this post:

“Henry Ford went broke five times before he succeeded in business. Albert Einstein didn’t speak until he was four, didn’t read until he was seven, and was considered “mentally slow” by his teacher.

“The famous sculptor, Rodin, was thought to be an idiot by his father. Walt Disney was fired for a lack of creativity. Lombardi was accused of a lack of motivation [seriously?!]. Winston Churchill failed the sixth grade. Abraham Lincoln’s resume is one long trail of failures and disappointment. Fred Astaire was considered an average dancer and screen test failure. Rocky Marciano couldn’t make it in baseball.

IBM passed when first offered the photocopier (so did Kodak and RCA). Cheese, penicillin, paper towels, and aspirin were all by-products of mistakes [yellow sticky notes too!].

“History proves time and time again the number one qualifier for outstanding achievement is failure.

“We all fall down, but we mustn’t stay down. Every failure is an opportunity to begin again in a wiser fashion. We have more going for us than the formidable than the human spirit. We have the help of the Holy Spirit.

“Get up! Get moving! Quit whining! Seek guidance, and live your life to exceed every ody’s expectations.”



Our language is powerful! And none greater than our self-talk. Our language tells us much of what’s going on within our own minds.

The more aware you are of the thoughts and words you use, the better you understand “you” on a daily basis.

Some of the greatest influence we have is with the young.

Be mindful of your words and actions for the subconscious mind of the child is being programmed directly by what you feed it.

During the imprinting years (roughly 0-7) there is a direct connection to the subconscious mind.

It is direct access without any filters. It's like being on the world wide web with no firewall, anti-virus, malware protection of any kind.
