Patience Is Power

My dad used to say, “Be patient son”. I guess every father has said that to every son, many times. It took me many years to understand it. I first learned what he meant when I tried to fish in a hurry. I found that it doesn’t work that way. To catch fish, you have to have bait. Then carefully bait the hook and patiently wait for the fish to take the bait. To be successful at fishing, you have to keep fishing.

An old man trying to explain to me years later used to say that he didn’t mean “sittin patience”, he meant “work’in patience”. In other words, what ever your goal, don’t sit and wait, keep working at it.
