With the new year approaching, I have been reflecting on the current year and setting new goals. If you have been reading my blog or know me, often I have a problem with waiting. It’s ironic how I can have all the patience in the world with my clients and customers, but when it comes to my own circumstance I have close to none. How can this be possible?
I realized through readings from author, Rick Warren and words from a business and life coach, I am not trusting the process. My impatience is not a sign of immaturity but rather an ability to see the outcome before I take one step. Read that again.
It is easier to be patient with my clients and customers because the process is the same. The story or problem might the same but it is presented to me from different people over and over again. It is my job to fix it and make things right.
When it comes to my business or personal growth, the process is foreign to me. I don’t have all the steps figured out quite yet. I am learning as I go along, which may be a good or bad thing — I’m not sure yet. With this revelation, I am determined to stick with it. I need to trust more, doubt less, and eventually I’ll learn to love the process.
How did you develop a process for yourself?
