... and you will win the game eventually!
I really like the concept of Stockdale Paradox from the book "Good to Great" by Jim Collins. It says: "Face the most brutal facts of your current reality. And retain faith that you will prevail in the endgame."
Patience is that ever-important asset which helps you to accept your situation, realize your reality, stay focused on your goals and keep forever optimistic about the future. Yes, this can be very challenging, but it's definitely worth it and strive for. So today is the day to start being patient.....try to, it can only help.
