TD Jakes – Motivation: Good Things Take Time.
Be patient. Good things take time. All things come to those who wait. Better things are coming. somethings are worth waiting for.
If you ask me, where humans go wrong is with their lack of patience. That, and their recent acquired taste for instant gratification. The reality is that things take time. Richard Branson didn’t become a millionaire overnight. Madonna was not an overnight success. David Beckham was not born a superstar footballer. Understand that there are certain pleasures in life one should never rush. Be inspired by all these successful people.
I’m impatient. I move fast and love things done now. I have a dream and wish it came true last weekend. I get an idea and want it realized tomorrow. But life’s not like that, is it? So, through my inner work, I’ve learned to slow down (a little). Because Good Things Take Time.
We live in a world that adores speed. But the nature of business and life is more organic. A gorgeous wine takes time to mature. A precious garden takes time to bloom. A breathtaking mountain needed time to form. And – great businesses and world-class lives are not created in a day. It’s more about evolution than revolution. Those small daily improvements that, over time, lead to stunning results. It’s the small steps that matter most.
So today, I invite you to be patient. Focus more on consistent and steady improvements in the way you work and in the way you live. Slow and steady does win the race.
