What it Means to “Be Patient”

Whoever told you to “be patient” is lying. Patience gets confused with inaction.

The only reason people are successful is because they put in the work and let their expertise build up over time. No one achieves mastery sitting on the couch.

Patience is really just practice. Success is an accumulation of patient effort. Luck results from the pursuit of preparedness. It’s the impatient that give up.
