When the bite of a crisis first enters our minds, the temptation is to immediately deal with the challenge. It is important to remember that remaining patient in these “tests” is a form of wisdom.
Pause before acting to set your best course, there may come yet another wrinkle or even a series of immediate challenges. Be patient, thinking of what might be next. Pause.
“Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen at once.” — Paulo Coehlo —
