Patience, perseverance, and persistence. Power words for success in life and peace overall. In fact, there is no peace without patience which is a big reason why it's an important concept in budo. Patience is the ballast of the soul and good things come to those who wait but it does not imply that one does nothing while waiting. Just pause daily to allow those things you are working hard for to catch up to you. Nothing in nature that lasts for a long time is rushed into existence. Following this example is a good idea for us; so if you are delayed in any way from getting something or getting somewhere it might be happening for good reason. Best not to force it, let things unfold as they should and at the right time.
