It’s important to not become impatient when you find yourself in a period of waiting. Whether it’s waiting for a job promotion or waiting for a certain milestone in your life. The waiting period is not just wasted time; it can be a great learning experience. Good things take time and it’s important for you to remember these three things when you find yourself in a period of waiting:
Waiting Isn’t A Punishment
Waiting can be preparation or protection in some cases. If you are waiting for a job promotion like I said above, maybe the waiting period is your time to grow as a businessperson and become more prepared for your new responsibilities. Waiting can serve as protection in a lot of ways. Even when you are waiting in traffic, it could serve as the way for you to get home safely because if there hadn’t been traffic you could have ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time. There is a purpose behind each waiting period so rather than being frustrated with it, you should think about the positive that could come from it.
The Waiting Won’t Last Forever
No matter how long you wait, there is always a solution. It’s as simple as that. You might not be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel just yet but it is there and your waiting period is the time you need to take to figure that solution out. You have to have faith in yourself and believe that the best is yet to come.
You Don’t Have To Sit And Do Nothing
Use your waiting period as a time to grow as a person. Don’t just spend your time doing nothing. There is always something new to learn that can benefit you and your future. It’s also the perfect time to try something different or step out of your comfort zone a little. So whatever you might be waiting on, just embrace it.
