PATIENT IS REQUIRED IN BUSINESS
None of the big businesses around became what it is today in just one day. Like every other process, the growth, expansion and profit-making potential of a business are in stages, which need time to occur.
Do not be in a hurry to make money/profit when you have just started the business. Instead, see to the perfection of your business first, and profit will come subsequently. Be patient as you strive to maintain the quality of your products/services in line with the demands of the consumers. Granted, profit is the ultimate goal of every business venture. However, there are a lot of things that must be put in place, and actively so, to guarantee sustainability of profit. For instance, you need to strive to be ahead of your competitors on all fronts; you need to win the hearts and patronage of the larger volume of consumers/clients; you need to make long-term forecast and plans, among other considerations, all of which require a lot of patience. Being overambitious, greedy and hasty in your business operations may yield short-term benefits, but a patient approach sets your business on a more proper pedestal to stand the test of time. Rome, they say, was not built in a day. Neither is business/profit!
If you have a firm belief and work hard, you will succeed in your business. But you must apply patience to it, for faith without patience has no substance. Most times people may have the faith in their business after having invested all that seems to be needed into it, but lack patience. Then after a while, the business begins to collapse.
With patience come endurance, perseverance and even tolerance. In the sphere of life, you have to be patient and enduring. When you plant a seed, it does not grow immediately; it needs to be watered and tended in order to germinate. Then the sun does its part to stimulate the growth of the seed. So it is with business. It needs to be given time. Success in business often likes to keep people waiting. Learn to persevere until you succeed in business.
