Achieving Success Requires Patience

Last Update: January 17, 2017

What is patience? Basically, patience is waiting with difficulties. It's confidence in yourself, with a good feeling of hope. It takes place during some difficult circumstances.

Being patient is a necessity to a life of achievement because it is the nature of things and the law of time that you cannot immediately reap where you have sown.

Anything worthwhile takes time to grow and mature. So your dreams too require this time of nurturing and growth. It is during this time, when the fruits of your labour may not be evident, that your patience is most required.

Do not judge your success based on other peoples success. One of the things that make people impatient is seeing other people getting ahead faster than they are

Most of all learn to be patient with yourself. You are not perfect and you will make mistakes along the way. But understand that you are on the right track and headed in the right direction, however many mistakes and setbacks you may encounter on the way. And remember; don’t just look forward to reaching the destination. Enjoy the journey too.

“Patience can’t be acquired overnight. It is just like building up a muscle. Every day you need to work on it.” ~ Eknath Easwaran -

I am very new at this so yes, I am feeling impatient. While watching the training videos, it was stated that if you create your own .com site you would do a lot better. So, I did. Paid for the domain name, etc . That was a huge mistake. I am not getting support from the people I paid. Thinking I will put that one on hold and create a new one with their siterubix and see what happens. I am just at a stand still. Patience is one thing. Standing still is another matter.

Patience is everything. But I have to be honest mine sometimes wares a little thin. I was really motivated in the beginning and then I took ill starting to feel better and put more work in to my site
butt still not really seeing any results. I did get involved with the community that has motivated me a bit. I'm giving my self a year . I'll see where I'm at after that. If I make it it's on me and the community and if I fail it's all on me. I learnt a long time ago I am responsible for the choices I take.

While great advice....let's face it we have all heard the stories where a "student" is making 1000 bucks a month 3 months after the starting A course...I have been through this before and I am sure most will agree it is not typical nor the Norm...it takes Years to build up a proper set of sites that you can use to build future sites and so on...
That said the work starts on getting a site that gets traffic and in turn the clicks that get sales....wash rinse repeat. it is easier if you have the best content(that google likes) which is not easy/cheap...but as one site grows the capital can fund that for others and the cycle begins...Staying the course will get you there you just have to push through the bad and fix what can be and not over invest in things that will not work...

I think being realistic is paramount to what we are tempting to do...people start out all gung ho and find out that their site gets little traffic for months is Frustrating...without a sale some cannot afford to maintain a site hosting
