  • Hello there, and welcome.

  • You know, we hear patience is a virtue.

  • I suppose it probably is.

  • But I think patience, real patience, is an expression of deep understanding.

  • You see, everything happens when it's supposed to happen.

  • Everything in this universe happens by law.

  • We set targets, and we need things to happen.

  • We need something to come or someone to do something.

  • And frequently we get frustrated because it isn't happening when we think it should happen.

  • Our problem is we're not thinking.

  • We believe we're in charge.

  • We are not in charge.

  • We are in charge of building the idea and holding the idea.

  • Everything else happens automatic.

  • It happens by law.

  • All ideas have a gestation or an incubation period.

  • I am told, when we plant a carrot in the area of the world that I live, it takes approximately 70 days for that carrot to grow, and manifest in form.

  • When the seed for the baby is planted, it takes approximately 280 days.

  • And we're usually patient, we will wait the 280 days.

  • Why?

  • Because we know it's going to take approximately 280 days.

  • Well, just because we don't know how long it's going to take doesn't mean that it isn't operating by the same laws.

  • Everything operates by law.

  • So, if we gain an understanding that all of the ideas in our mind will ultimately move into form - that's what Andrew Carnegie taught Napoleon Hill.

  • Carnegie was Hill's mentor.

  • He said, "Any idea that's held in the mind, that's emphasized, that's either feared or revered, will begin at once to clothe itself in the most convenient and appropriate form available."

  • You might want to listen to that two or three times.

  • Burn it into your mind.

  • Gain an understanding of it.

  • And you will know that whatever you're working on, takes a period of time.

  • No one knows what the gestation period is for an idea.

  • We only know we can shorten it through concentration, through focus.

  • And when you understand that, you will become more patient.

  • And when you're more patient, you're living in a much more beautiful vibration.

  • You'll be a more pleasant person to be around.

  • You will enjoy yourself more.

  • Patience is the result of understanding.

Hello there, and welcome.
