Patience is a separator. It separates the person that is unwilling to win and the person who is willing to do anything to achieve their goals. A lack of patience is why people take shortcuts. Be it steroids, theft, speeding, or other damaging compromises, it all leads to a lack of patience. If you find yourself always looking for the best hack to avoid the long grind, you lack the patience for lasting change and success. One might say that an athlete that is willing to do anything would take steroids to win. Not so. That athlete is avoiding the hard work and effort of a true hall-of-famer and therefore should never be counted among them. It’s not votes that separate them but their own lack of patience.
