A.A. Milne On Why You Should Be Patient.

“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.” – A.A. Milne,

As long as you keep on moving on, you shall get there some day.

As long as you resist the pressure to be like others and be yourself and, work at you own pace, you shall get there some day.

For some people around you, time has stopped because they have started making your business theirs. They are busy telling you what you should have had by now, where you should have been and who you should have or ought to be by now. Ignore them, don’t let the pressure get to you. Keep working hard, keep believing in your abilities and be patient, you shall get there some day.

According to Molière,

“Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.”

You really want to bear the best fruit? Then be patient. Being patient has nothing to do with laziness. It is living above frustrations and depressions; consequences of disappointments. It is having a positive mindset. It is taking your time to attend to details. It is knowing that not every effort is going to yield a positive outcome. It is knowing that no matter the outcome, you shall get there some day.
