Patience Affirmations

sun rising meditationIt’s human nature to want tomorrow to be today and our dreams to manifest right now. We want fast and slow discourages us. Keep the faith! Today and fast does not always create the best result.

Ralph Waldo Emerson counseled, “Adopt the pace of nature. Her secret is patience.”

These are challenging words for our productivity-driven world of instant gratification. Yet, the wisdom is as sound as when the words were first written. Even more ancient encouragement along these lines comes from the Tao Te Ching. “Tao invariably does nothing, yet nothing is left undone.”

I am not saying we abandon your push to your dreams. Only that in certain parts of our journey patience is a valuable ally. Rush can create error and unhappiness. It can stress out and burn us out. Sometimes, wisdom calls for us to be patient like river wearing away the rock.

Here are some affirmations to help. Some will resonate with you, others won’t. Take what you need.

  1. With patience and an empowered mindset, even my wrong turns can lead to right roads!
  2. This stream flows to my dreams. Today I am content to be the leaf gently floating down the stream.
  3. I am ready for today to be the day, but I’m with my dreams for the long haul.
  4. Today’s patience pays tomorrow’s dividends.
  5. When pushing is wisdom, I push. When waiting is wisdom, I wait.
  6. My long-term dreams are bigger than my short-term needs.
  7. Breathing in, I accept nature’s pace. Breathing out, I see my dreams manifesting in the journey.
  8. I am strong enough to be patient.
  9. I accept what is, even as I work to change it.
  10.  My WHAT is more important than my WHEN!
  11. Today’s disappointments are the fertilizer for tomorrow’s achievements.

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
