My father says for leading a successful and happy life it is important to inculcate certain virtues among us since our childhood. These virtues not only help us to lead a good social life but also benefits us in gaining success in our academic and professional endeavors. There goes a proverb ‘Haste makes waste’. This means a hasty person makes lots of mistake in his life. So it is important to realize the value of patience by every individual in the society and cultivate it. Daddy says being patient can help us to reach out the stars. With patience, we can avoid making hasty decisions.

Patience, An Essential Moral Quality

In today’s world, most of us lack patience and get irritated at very small things such as losing a football match, waiting for our turn for something. Patience is an essential moral quality which makes us a better person. In order to shape our talents and inborn abilities into real achievements, it is important for us to have patience. If we want to master any art or enhance our talents we need to make a continuous effort for a long time. For achieving our dreams, one must have the zeal to overcome challenges and the strength to overcome blockades which comes only through patience. Our teachers in school always emphasize the habit of developing patience among us. When we engage in various activities in our school we learn the valuable qualities of co-operation, sharing, caring, and patience.

Patience Helps in The Development of Positive Attitudes

Many times, things around us do not turn the way we want. In such situations instead of getting frustrated, we should learn to be patient. Mamma says it is necessary to see things and circumstances in a positive light for making our life happier. And patience helps us to develop positivity. My mother always insists that if we face a situation which is challenging or difficult to bear then we should try to re-frame the situation and see the positive side of it.

Patience Helps Us to Stay Healthy

Often it is said that anger and stress are two things which can ruin our mental and physical health. Whereas patience acts as an antidote to these. A patient man can overcome any challenging circumstances with more ease and flexibility. We can lead a healthy life by being stress-free and happy. One who is patient is sure about his goal and puts his desired efforts in the right direction.

Patience makes us tolerant and builds empathy towards others. It acts as an important tool for overcoming frustrations. I have seen my parents taking things patiently they have an open mind and always face difficulties calmly. My parents are a great source of inspiration to me.
