Killer called Impatience
A Killer Called Impatience -A Winner called Patience
Many situations arise in one's life ( moreso in work-life) which have the potential to drive a person justifiably mad....and most people do go mad and make the greatest blunders of their lives in such moments of impatience.
The wise therefore define patience as one's discreet reaction of calm & understanding when the situation has potential to burst and explode but the reaction is that of calm poise, calculated composure and fortitude.
Most mistake patience for waiting. Actually , it not throwing your position, attitude and connections whilst you are waiting.
Not that one cannot get angry but that one chooses not to get angry. That is patience. That is a virtue of inspirational leadership.
The common man prays - "I want the cookie right now". That is impatience.
