Patience is a virtue. Patience is also a practice. Some people naturally have more of it. Everyone has more or less, in different circumstances or settings.
Are you practicing patience?
For years I taught preschool and people would say to me, “I could never do that. You must have so much patience.” I just adored the kids I worked with. I light up when I’m around kiddos. I get them and they get me. But ask me to stand in line for a museum, a concert, the bathroom, or anything really, and I become a full-fledged four-year-old myself!
I have recently been practicing stillness, quietness, and tuning in through yoga, meditation, coloring, and breathing.
Do you have a practice or routine that helps you relax, reflect and build patience?
Being in business requires patience. It also requires perseverance and tenacity, and resilience. These are in their own way all forms of patience or require patience as well.
Building a successful company doesn’t happen overnight. Even if someone appears to be an overnight success, rest assured that years of planning, preparation, and hard work went into getting them there.
In that period of preparing and honing your craft, learning and growing through studying, personal development, and mistakes made, there are moments where the only thing you can do is be patient. When you’ve done all there is to do. Like the night before a big talk, or a launch.
There may be a sense of excitement, or uncertainty, discomfort, anxiety, or ambiguity in these moments. Sometimes, if we don’t realize this is a period of waiting and practicing being patient, we may frantically search for what we should be doing or think something is wrong. Some will even scrap their whole project or worse, their whole business, deeming it a failure.
If, on the other hand, you do identify these periods for what they are, you may find it’s a good time to step away and rest, relax, have fun, do something creative, or connect with friends and family. Play and enjoy this time! It can open up your mindset to next steps and energize you for what will be required of you when the time for waiting patiently inevitably comes to an end.
Finding your own natural rhythm, following the flow of each season and moment, and tuning into feminine intuition will help you to maximize your energy and efficiency, create sustainability and prevent burnout.
Do you know when it’s time to work and time to rest?
Do you go, go, go or feel guilt when your rest?
Maybe resting is something you only do once you’re exhausted and depleted.
