The lack of patience is an impediment to attaining success.

Good Things take time

Lack of patience is an impediment to success| It’s not only the number of those achieving success rising, it is the need to achieve it that is on the rise. The ‘competition’ is massive. Yet sometimes to achieve greater things in life you need not to compete but simply beat them. Patience is staying out of the competition but also striving to be a better you, beat what you were a second ago, and, therefore, beat them by accident.

It’s not only patience required when results are not showing up in time but when results show up on their time as a failure. Patience is when time is moving and you do not care whether you are hitting the gold or the rubble. That lack of care about the results is a basic maker of success because successful people are highly likely to be people with a lot of failures in the past but also ahead. We live in an environment with a multiplicity of patience erasers. The lack of patience is rife. It must be.

But without patience, there is no waiting for an uncertain season of harvest. Shortcuts are not the dream. The dream itself can never wake you up before its time. Where patience is lacking the actual dream is replaced by shortcuts.

Patience is functionally staying where you are not wanted, welcoming the unwelcomeable and hoping for the best without hoping for the best in the next second or the next year. If you don’t stay where you are not wanted but where you should stay to bring out something you desire you don’t get what you desire. Since success is for the few who only deserve it, why should it be given to dudes who want clean results like yesterday? The lack of patience erases all that you must put to the surface to claim victory. Where you are required to feel the pain you just run away.

I’d rather feel the hate in what I love. Than feel the love in what I hate…

Feeling the hate in what you love. If you take that as your only option; It means there are no conditions to stay but you are simply staying because you love it. This becomes patience working in harmony with passion. Feeling the love in what you hate is simply welcoming stakes with high and immediate rewards but them being anything you don’t really love. In this case, you are only willing to welcome anything welcomeable and not punishing. But anything of such kind creeps in as one of the things your heart don’t beat for.

Why would we want things in our hands that are exclusive to the few that easy? Why? Because patience is hard to incorporate into anyone’s system. It doesn’t keep the beholder happy it can only keep him/her enduring what most are not ready to endure, and therefore, it is a rare commodity. It doesn’t beg anyone to allow it in his system and it doesn’t force to get in. This nature of patience is by design to keep itself in the systems of the few. The lack of patience remains one of the biggest impediments to success.

Where society meets, a narrative of achievements without patience is indirectly created and maintained. We love “automatic success” especially the one that is judged by what each one among us can buy and show and followers you can have, and it rarely exists. Social networks carry images that do not reveal anything patience or even true success but they trigger a lot, including confusion, among the youth who are aiming to achieve. An athlete is already in the tracks, says an image posted. However, years of work behind are hidden, and the image goes viral missing its reality.

Patience, despite causing you to stay where the pain is, can take away some of the pain and ready yourself to endure the pain. It is patient in having you take no shortcuts and start again when the long way doesn’t lead to the results desired. Patience is patient in having you take a long way again and again without any results. It also faces the verge of extinction all the time; both in the long-term and the short-term. A minor failure causes patience to die. Seven days of visiting the same office without getting the answer erase the possibility of visiting it the eighth. Yes, there are times when you can be pointlessly patient. But patience when it is pointless it’s less pointless than the opposite of it.

Sacrifices happen in a sea of patience. In patience, you wait for what you have been not promised, and only you are sure that it is going to come out right or not, then right after more trying. Sacrifices happen in the same manner apart from the fact that there is no hint of waiting. Yet both can produce the same results. You can sacrifice and still fail but git it right after many costly sacrifices.

Unique results are less likely to come overnight. Interesting results must come overnight. But there is a difference between the results that you wish to get and interesting results. The results you wish to get require patience. Patience is harder to live in and maintain. Patience, the lack thereof, is the biggest impediment to the attainment of success.

Without the power to be to face total starvation without determination changed. Without the power to stand for ages without your needs addressed. Without the lust to stand for ages without your needs addressed. The amount of distance in light-years from achieving success is only higher.

Catching and not having it in your hands

Informativus avatar

29Apr2021-Thu. During this time of the year, the distance increases between the sun and the southern hemisphere, where my home is located, resulting in the temperatures going cooler there. After casting my nets for the night’s catch on 28 April on a deep site which is what catching fishermen do when the river gets colder (the fish occupies deeper pools to bask in stock of some warmer layers of water and this may allow them to keep feeding).

I felt the season’s chill punishing. The following day when I went to the river to check if my nets had achieved something, my decision was to pull the nets straight from the water while standing outside and pack them for the home where I would pluck the fish from them. All was haste until the unexpected slowed it down not only for the moment but for the day. While I dragged the nets off the water in the manner stated, a fish (Labeo forskalii/Plain Shark) that was reported by a database of fish species, Fishbase, to reach a documented maximum length 36 cm), was in for the drag and it was around 36cms in length. It could have become my personal record but it didn’t because it slipped from the nets; it being caught partially through its dorsal fin and its fleshy lips that makes it a labeo.

The call, one not to be resisted, ‘is come again, and come again next time not only knowing this but ready to do what you know if you are to succeed’.

The frustration of losing what would have become my personal trophy led me into kicking stones enraged. It was a great personal loss a fisherman could not wish to come across because those personal records can make one fisherman feel like a fisherman for sure. As for me, the whole village could have gathered around to see it and I imagined myself placing a ruler aside it and photograph it. But I lost it before that could happen.

I didn’t lose. I won something. Next time, so I learned, if I am to have something of this magnitude in my hands, I must be in the water not on the river banks, I must be in the cold not in my jacket, taking the unpleasant cold not the warmth because those few minutes are what gives records or shatter them; compensate fairly the fisherman’s patience or dispirits him/her. I caught a fish, in a big size not documented before in the river as a fisherman, I lost it before none could witness it. Such happen in real life when you get so close to something and have nothing in the final end. The call, one not to be resisted, ‘is come again, and come again next time not only knowing this but ready to do what you know if you are to succeed’.

The best opportunity available to me was me. I lost it because I couldn’t push myself further to get what was mine. Because I couldn’t be in the water, worrying about catching a cold what was mine ceased to be.

That best opportunity available, if it is to be available to oneself, requires oneself to push him/herself further if it is to be realised. You the best opportunity. Prove that you’re there for you.

In the darkest moments of my life, I open up my diary which is greatly digital now, and read for solutions. My diary is quite a big one, and I had to find means to share its little scraps with you.

The Impact edition of Socien’s personal diary shorten things for anyone without the need to read the full version of the diary, SubjectMe. You are never alone in the extremes, and you, me, him, her, can find a way out.

What they say you are sometimes is not, but it is their information concerning you (never take it as advice). Sometimes they can go ahead and give you an advice when they are wrongly misinformed. In this Impact section you will learn from first hand experience.

Finding my passion

I caught a fish. My personal record, the biggest of its type I have ever seen coming out of our river. Stating why I couldn’t quite end up with it I picked a motivational offence.
