“If you genuinely want something, don’t wait for it – teach yourself to be impatient.” - Gurbaksh Chahal
Now typically, most of us have been told to be patient as we have grown up. I know this was challenging for me at times. I'm sure you heard the same types of sayings from your parents, family, and teachers. 'Patience is a virtue.' or 'Good things come to those who wait.' Ever heard these before or even said these yourself to someone else?
This is just one more way your mindset can affect your results. The programming you have received from others teaches you to wait to get the benefits you want. It's being programmed into us at an early age. While this can serve another's agenda in having you wait for a result without taking any action to make it happen, it definitely slows your results.
As an entrepreneur, teaching yourself to be impatient is a way to motivate yourself to take massive action NOW! Just think for a minute. When you have a deadline coming, does it move you faster to make sure the goal gets completed. I know I work much better against a deadline. It's how I have always worked. When I have a short deadline, my focus is increased. I take more action steps in this smaller time frame to make sure I'm successful. The larger number of action steps in a shorter time helps me reach my goals much quicker.
Now this can also work with your team. I set aggressive deadlines with my team all the time. When I create short timelines on projects, it drives them to finish sooner. When we finish one task sooner, we are able to get to the next one earlier. Since I use my impatience to set aggressive principle targets, myself and my companies get to more opportunities faster. Getting to more opportunities adds to the overall success of my companies.
Do you want more results faster in your life? Get impatient. Take more actions now. You have a great message, service or solution to help out the world. The only thing you are doing by being patient is cheating them out of the opportunity to realize the benefits of what you offer. Use your impatience to help drive your business.
