Trust the process.

The phrase “trust the process” came with a lot of ridicule a few years ago when the Philadelphia 76ers began to “tank” to get high draft picks and then proceeded to “red shirt” young players to develop them. When they were losing, people scoffed at their “process”. Now they are an exciting young team that has upgraded a once-derided phrase to a now respected one that other teams emulate. It takes discipline to play the long game because there is pressure from others who don’t understand delayed gratification. The “process” is simply taking the time to develop people without the sense of urgency everyone else feels. Training takes time and eventually pays off if you can resist the pressure to rush.
