Patience is the big play

Men are born to succeed not fail. Henry David Thoreau
Many of us have it backwards we look at the glass as half full. We look for failure rather than success. We are conditioned to see what is wrong rather than what is right. But winners see opportunity in everything that is wrong. Winners expect problems but they always turn them around into an advantage, their advantage. This is why we need to keep the big picture in mind.
Remember patience is the big play! We simply do not know what is heading our way disguised in adversity. Winners stay composed and patient. They are focused and determined to build their law firm. They are focused and determined to win the blockbuster case. They expect the challenges and are prepared for battle. They have a knack for being lucky. Lucky? Yes, when opportunity meets preparedness. Yes they work their way into the luck.
We all know that Rome wasn’t built in a day. We all know that time and determination is what it takes to win. We all know that fortitude is the key to success. The people we look up to in history are the ones that out worked and outlasted the others. Their success came from an attitude of never give in, never give up and never, never, never quit!
