You need time to achieve goals, especially big goals, and this requires patience. If you are too impatient, desiring to have immediate results, you might be disappointed and quit your goal.
You have to study, improve yourself, change your mindset, and work toward your goal. You have to water your goal with ambition, motivation and effort, so that it will come true.
Patience is very closely related to self-discipline. If you possess self-discipline, you also have patience, and vice versa. If you strengthen your self-discipline, you also strengthen your patience.
Persistence is a sign of inner strength and of strong character. Without it, you cannot make any progress. It is ability that makes a person a winner against all odds. It is the person who keeps going that wins. Success could be just so close, and just a little more time and effort are required.
