Waiting can be called patience in disguise;
waiting is not an easy thing because we are all in a
hurry to greatness. Greatness cannot be achieved in
a day, it takes patience, perseverance, will, prayer and
determination to get to our desired destination.
One of the things I have learnt within this period of staying at home is that ones ability
to exercise patience is very important in life. It is my nature to have things done at a fast
pace and I get impatient when things
are not going the way I want it. I have no doubt that everything
will take shape in due season and time.

determination. Determination means different things
to different people, to some it means to excel and to
others it means to succeed, but let look at the
dictionary meaning of the word determination: the act

with determination and will, you can reach whatever
height you want to achieve in life.

diligence and prayers and this will lead one to his/her

she counselled me and charged me not to
allow anything frustrate me, instead I should look
for a positive way to channel my energy. That, yes
this government has a lot to be blamed for with regard to our present
economy, however, we will be the one to suffer if we don’t
pick ourselves up when we fall. she buttressed her points with a verse in the
bible that states that “the race is not to the swift”, so
also, when we fall we should pick ourselves up, dust
our cloths and start the race all over again, that is
how to be successful in life.
