Success Requires Patience

Nothing great was ever created quickly.

To develop a great scientific discovery, to paint a masterpiece, to write an immortal poem, to become a minister, to start a business or become a Navy S.E.A.L.--to do anything significant requires time, patience, and perseverance.

Baby Steps At First

Success is achieved by degrees, little by little, one step at a time.

Michelangelo did not paint the Sistine Chapel ceiling in a day. Mozart did not compose Don Giovanni in a day, Milton did not write Paradise Lost at one sitting, nor did Shakespeare create Hamlet in a day.

Just as the most famous musicians begin with basic musical notes and artists first draw with Crayons, the greatest writer who ever lived began with the alphabet. With words. If you want to write a book, you too must start there.

Be patient with yourself and with the process as you take the first steps to achieve your dream.
