Words of advice from one of my mentors..."Stop hoping for things to change in your life if you don't believe that they will! If you reaffirm that you will be successful by doing everything in your power to achieve said success, you will be successful. It won't happen overnight, but if you persevere it will eventually. You have to first believe that it will happen, then keep working to make it happen!"

Overnight success isn't really a thing. Dig into the stories of the “overnight successes” you know and you discover what you heard was an abbreviated version of the “full” story. The night was many years or decades in the making.
It can take YEARS to achieve your dreams, goals, or aspirations. Believe me, after serving 30 years...THREE DECADES in the United States Air Force, I look back and reflect on the good, bad, and ugly parts. All of which took grit, perseverance, failures, setbacks, and a lot of hard work.
So what was my strategy...so like many of us, I started using patience instead of frustration to help me move forward. So now in this next chapter of my life, I'm relearning to be more patient and not rush to my desired successes.
I'm also relearning that FRUSTRATION, ANXIETY & OVERWHELM will not help me with making smart decisions, being more relaxed, or increasing my confidence, so have to choose to be more patient and just enjoy the journey.
With this renewed mindset, I'm thinking about myself more than I did when I was in the military, establishing a new self-care routine, networking and joining different local groups, learning new skills, rededicating myself to my hobbies, and spending time with the people that I love.
This is all part of my "patience" plan✌🏾
So if anyone is transitioning into the next chapter of your life or stepping into a new thing, believe in the POWER OF PATIENCE.
