How to develop patience?
Here are some suggestions for you to develop patience. Just go through these simple suggestions and try to imbibe them in your daily life. Treat them as important principles to be followed so that you are able to practice patience.
Treat every work you do with equal importance. Always remember "work is worship". The more importance you give to a particular task, the more you get involved in it and you are able to do it with more precision. Be patient and you will complete any work with less efforts.
Remind yourself every time about the goals you want to achieve in your life. Be very strict about following certain strategies to achieve the goals in your life. When the question is about your career think seriously and stick to your goals.
Take any decision without hurrying. Take opinions of a few people before arriving at any final decision.
Follow examples of great people like Mahatma Gandhi, Gautam Buddha etc. Remember that they possessed lot of courage and patience to become what today they are recognized for today.
Do not do things which are unnecessary. For example some people have a habit of going out for shopping or eating without any reason. Think that rather wasting money on extra cheese in meals or an extra pair of shoes or dresses save that money for a rainy day.
Remember that God is always testing your patience in difficult times. So do not lose patience in any situation. Stay calm.
Even a small thing like standing in a queue requires patience. If you can do at least that you will be able to develop lots of patience within yourself. Think of pregnant women, how much patience they would require during nine months to give birth to a baby.
Many times in life we come across situations big and small that require us to be patient. Patience is the mother of all virtues. If you can be patient you can do anything.
