Think back to a time when you were determined to make something happen and were successful. There is no greater feeling than to finally see all of your good work pay off. You had been consistently, constantly, the same in working on that project. No matter what it felt like or if people agreed or disagreed, you continued on. Even when it looked as if it wasn't possible, you kept going. That my friends is patience. For years I was taught that patience was to put up with something, to just go with the flow until the change comes. " One day it will change. I'm just going to stay here and endure until it does." No, my friends, patience is not being stuck. Not only that, but, that very statement goes against your very being. You are the change. You are the hands and feet of your spirit being. You were created to be a strong, powerful, creative, being. When we find ourselves in a state of stuck it is because we are allowing a situation to keep us from being our true selves, our strong, powerful, creative selves.
Let me tell you what patience looks like:
I really want to start my consulting business. (desire) - I'm going to stay on this job that I have no passion for (and my pay reflects it) and maybe one day it will change for me. (stuck) - I'm going to start my business where I am and with what I have and it will grow as I evolve as a woman. (patience)
I'd love to be able to take my family on a vacation this year. (desire) - I barely have enough to pay the bills this month. One day I'm going to make enough to go on that vacation. (stuck) - I'm going to start charging what I'm worth, giving my best in my work, so I can make the money I need on a monthly basis and cover the cost of the vacation. (patience)
I would really love to lose 15-lbs and have a fit body. (desire) - All of the women in my family are big, we just have big bones. (stuck) - I'm going to start adding more healthy foods and activity into my lifestyle, and eat the things I love in moderation. (patience)
Take a look at the situations in your life where you are mistaking patience for being stuck. Tap into your creative power and begin to make the changes to bring the fulfillment you so desperately desire.
