Patience.  Yeah, we know the definition of it but most of us have VERY little of it.  Why is Patience a virtue?  Why do good things come to those that wait?  To answer this you have to understand what patience is and why its good.  The definition of Patience is the "bearing of misfortune, annoyance, pain or provocation without complaint, loss of temper, anger or alike."  If you go the "virtue" route, then it's a morally sound and nice thing to not get annoyed with people or incidents that aren't working in your favor or working in a timely manner.  Even though I don't believe that "good things come to those who wait (mostly because I am a believer of "he who hesitates is lost"), but there's something about not expecting everything to happen or work in your favor immediately.  When we work on a skill in the gym, we want it to work and happen RIGHT NOW.  How many of you have your pull-up or your muscle up?  Are you close?  Does that irritate the HELL out of you?  Well, then you aren't being patient LOL!  Where patience becomes important is when you are learning a new skill, or are trying to improve your strength. Not because you need to wait for the sake of waiting but rather because you need this time to build the foundation of whatever it is that you are doing.  ALL activities NEED to have this learning time to build that solid and broad foundation.  The broader the foundation the higher the skill and ability that can be built on it. Time can NOT be the determining factor of whether you are close or not to achieving the goal.  Its whether you can actually do it and have you taken enough of the appropriate steps to make it.  Being pateint isn't about waiting.  Patience is about maximizing everything to be the best you can, and then when the time is right......crushing it!!!:)
