Sweetness of success is in the bitterness of patience-Imam Ali (as)

Here is a story of a farmer that lends credence to what Imam Ali (as) has said. A small farmer lived in a village with a small not so fertile piece of land.  He was a kind hearted man and believed in simple living. He was a contented man having no excessive desires.
on the piece of land that he owned he was not able to grow enough crops. He being a man of positive thoughts, always believed and never gave up on his belief that   one day he would surely be able to grow sufficient quantity of   of crops on his dry and infertile land. His neighbors and his friends always discouraged him to do anything on this piece of land; instead   everybody   asked him to try growing crops on some other land but he stuck to his belief; kept patience and continued trying various methods to make the land fertile.

His patience paid him good rewards and one day he successfully raised crops on his dryland. It shows that being patient always leads you to the way of success.  
Sweet are the fruits of patience so said Mahatma Gandhi the architect  of our freedom, and   global symbol of Stubborn courage and patience.  He won freedom with tremendous amount of patience. His steadfastness in pursuing the path of truth (Satyagrah)and non-violence (Ahimsa) won admiration from all over the world.  He remained adamant about his principles of Non-Violence and Satyagraha. He didn't bow before anyone, but at    the same time, remained non-violent. He said, you can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy my  body, but you can never imprison my mind. There can't be a better example of patience is a virtue that leads to success than the father of land Mahatma Gandhi. The key to success is Patience, as reflected in Mahatma Gandhi's success in liberating India.

This shows people who showed patience became successful. 
So when you want to do something completely new, you need to have patience.  Everything is not going to happen overnight. Make a plan. Visualize the outcome and think of the obstacles and challenges you will face.  Think of the blocking stones and then chalk out the strategy to tackle them. Your energy, your motivation and the drive will take you to your desired destination.  The day you plant the seed is not the day you get to eat the fruit, so be realistic, be patient and aim to do just one thing at a time.

A young man asked Tolstoy, How long to be patient. Can water ever hold in a sieve? Tolstoy replied, It will hold, be patient. When water turns into ice it will be held even within a sieve.?

Patience is a virtue .It requires resolve to develop and nurture it, All great achievers had this virtue. Patience makes you experience calmness, Success comes with a clam mind .Patience is a very great mantra to success .I have seen that those who remained patient have gone far ahead in life. Those who were impatient and restless got left behind and lost. Practice patience. Don't give up. You will break through. I promise you, the principle always Works
As  American author and speaker  Joyce Meyer has put it. Patience is not simply the ability to wait. It is how we behave while we are waiting?

If you are impatient, then your work will yield unripe fruits that will be sour. A fruit comes to fruition only when it is fully ripe. A ripe mango tastes many times sweeter than a raw one. So whatever you do, be patient with yourself and watch success smiling at you. A patient person will never be restless
-Imam Ali (a.s) says I will be patient until patience tires of my patience. Patience is the ability not only to wait but the ability to keep good attitude.  One who practices patience will never be deprived of success, even though it may take a long time to reach him.
