You must have definitely heard the term patience is a virtue ? This wise proverb means you have the ability to wait for something without frustration. It is a useful skill and a good aspect of one’s personality. Patience is a quality of the heart. Practice patience deliberately to bring quality to your relationships. Moreover, it helps you and the people around you. Although some people are naturally patient (if you are into zodiac, Taurus), some people are naturally impatient (me, an Aries).

Patience is a virtue in 2021

A large part of my life in 2021 is filled with stimuli. I have realized that patience is one of those successful qualities where success feeds on itself. Being patient allows me to keep perspective with people around me. I can remember, even in the midst of a difficult situation, or a confrontation, that the challenge that lies before me isn’t “life or death” but a minor obstacle that is to be dealt with.

Building Patience allows you to truly connect

With patience, you can truly listen. You can express your thoughts with clarity. Feel your emotions with depth. Meet decisions with certainty. This allows you to become emotionally intelligent to you and the people around you. That sense of calm allows people around you to connect truly with you. And not to mention, all the unnecessary yelling, frustration, and disagreement helps you flow with ease with people.

It needs patience to build patience. Truly, patience is a virtue

No not the chicken egg problem here, but it really helps to intentionally and consciously be patient to develop patience. Although I am still learning to be more patient, and having patience as a virtue in my life in 2021, here are three ways that are helping me:

  • Creating patience practice periods: You can start with as little as five minutes and build up your capacity for patience, over time. Say to yourself “Cool, for the next five minutes I won’t allow myself to be bothered by anything. I’ll be patient.” Your intention to be patient, even for a short while, immediately strengthens your capacity for patience.
  • Driving with patience: This is something that has really helped. I now drive 5-10 units of speed lesser than what is permissible on the roads. In addition, I allow a 2 car distance between me and my car in front of me. This not only helps me to develop tolerance, but also clears traffic much quickly 😉
  • Treating relationships as Gold to build patience: I now look forward to talking to everyone around me with intentional patience. When I notice something getting on my nerve, that’s when I really build myself up to be patient and a little more understanding. This practice is Gold.
