Once my father says, “God is with those who are patients.” I ask him what the word “patient” means. He replied, “A man is patient (tolerant) if he tries three aspects.” One is persistence, the capacity to keep in touch with his works ceaselessly unless he sees the result he expects. It keeps you moving toward your goal and thus helps you make your dreams come true. Another is acceptance. Accept whatever is happening right now it will reward you best. Another is the calmness or serenity will be revealed in the face of what is. The following image carries the importance of patience. Everybody is standing here with patient.

When you blurt out the first thought that comes into your head without considering the consequences, it may hurt another man to make him furious. As a result, this man will hurt you causing mentally impatience. If you’re patient, pause and go over what you want to say, you can avoid hurting or offending others.
