Watching acorns grow by the hour

Watching acorns grow by the hour

This is most people’s strategy for growth.

Most people don’t lack talent or skill.

Or a good idea.

They lack patience.

They want results NOW.

Or sooner.

Eventually, a lack of progress leads them to quit.

In the battle between PATIENCE V IMPATIENCE, you know who wins most.

The seeds of discouragement are planted by impatience.

  1. What you watch for.
  2. What you read.
  3. What you listen to.
  4. Who you surround yourself with.
  5. How you talk to yourself.
  6. How you use your imagination.

Most people can have exactly what they want in the future if they are willing to pay the price today asks: Do the work.
