*Inspirational Podcast Excerpt* : Patience means more than being able to stick to a task until it is finished. It means having a philosophy that makes one understand that it is continuous, well-directed efforts that win. Furthermore, patience must have an imaginative eye that sees the completed task and pronounces it well done.
A mule can plod up and down the field. It makes no difference to the mule whether cotton or weeds are being plowed, but the farmer would have little patience if they did not feel that they would harvest more than a crop of weeds.
To be patient, to keep plugging along, to keep climbing the hill, you must be inspired by, and buoyed up with, the hope of reaching the top. It is not patience, but hopelessness that keeps one working at a task that holds out absolutely no promise of ultimate successful completion. The patience that helps carry one up the hill is the cheerful, hopeful kind. It is the kind that realizes the necessity of well-directed, intelligent, continuous effort.
