The other day, at an office party, a colleague asked me
“All through this fund raising process, when things were not going our way, how did you remain so patient?”
Inside of me, I was like, “patient? Me?”
I am nothing like patience.
Yes, I am calm on the outside. Tolerant.
But inside, I am fucking impatient.
Here is something that I am though
Determined to achieve my target and continue to sign up on the process.
Show up every day, irrespective of how bad it is.
And if i feel like quitting today, I tell myself, let’s it tomorrow! And I say that tomorrow as well.
Patience is a virtue. But it’s inaction. It’s enduring pain. It’s tolerance.
Perseverance is action. It’s determination. It’s continuing despite everything.
What would you much rather be, if you only be one?
