Nowadays, we all want instant gratification and don’t have patience.  We want everything to happen this instant and we don’t always understand the value of patience, of being ready when the proper time comes.

As we set out to find our path, there should be no time limit.  We are looking for change over the long haul, change that is going to be with us for the rest of our lives.  In order to make these changes, we must be aware of our strengths and weaknesses, because we all have them.

The key is not only knowing which ones are which, but also knowing how to manage them.  Our job is to define our new role in life – a role that maximizes our strengths and minimizes our weaknesses.  Our strategy should be to leverage a skill we already have and build up our confidence so we can stand tall as we face these dramatic changes.
