Some Really Easy Steps To Develop More Patience
You can improve your life as well as the lives of the people around you when you gain the wisdom of patience, Not only that, you’ll also become a calmer and peaceful person.
You might find that you’re patient in some areas, and not so patient in others. No matter where you stand, you can always further develop the skill of patience.
Do you accept yourself and accept others?
Its important to remember that everyone is different. It’s quite difficult to avoid comparing yourself to others, and when you do compare, you might be setting yourself up for disappointment.
For example, if you’re attempting to learn a new skill, it might take you longer to become an expert and so accept that it’s okay. If you have the patience to see it through to the end, you’ll eventually get there and feel so much better for having completed it.
Accept the situation you’ve been given.
There may be certain situations that you don’t have any control over, it may be that you have to display quite a bit more patience than someone else in the same situation. You will have an easier time of it if you accept the situation without battling it.
Teach others instead of resorting to anger and frustration!
Do you sometimes find yourself in situations where you become easily frustrated with others? Perhaps they haven’t done as good a job as you think you could do.
Lend a helping hand in order to help them develop their skill. Rather than letting those negative emotions fester inside you, take action to fix the situation instead.
Helping others benefits everyone involved in the long run, and all it takes is the patience to help others with the little tasks.
Stop, Think, Breathe and Act Rather Than React
Tell yourself that no matter what, you can’t react immediately to a situation. Sometimes you may feel like you’re at the end of your rope and fear that you may react inappropriately because of a lack of patience.
Take a deep breath and slowly count to ten. These brief moments may be all it takes to get you to act calmly and rationally.
Alternatively if you keep yourself busy, there won’t be any time to let the frustration show.
When a lack of patience starts to bring out your frustrations, there’s probably something you can do besides just thinking about the situation.
Just tell yourself that you do have choice:
You can either take action to fix the situation, or occupy your time with something more beneficial to you.
If you find yourself in a position where you have to wait, maybe there’s something else you can do that’s enjoyable, like read a book. Or you can even just take joy in experiencing the present moment and relax.
View From Another Point Of View
Get into the habit of putting yourself into another person’s shoes and broaden your outlook.
Seeing the same situation through the eyes of others may be enough to bring you wisdom and patience. Understand that everyone is not like you; they don’t have the same thoughts, opinions, or abilities.
By incorporating these easy steps into your daily life, rather than facing the frustration of impatience, you'll feel the joy that more patience and understanding brings!
