A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of ‘Patience’.
Mary Pierce, the noted tennis player had once wisely said, “Sometimes things aren’t clear right away. That’s where you need to be patient and persevere and see where things lead.”
What exactly is this patience?
Google defines the term ‘patience’ to be “the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.”
Patience, simply put, is the ability to possess the capacity to wait, be it for a person or waiting for a goal, dream, aspiration, or ambition to actualize.
It is often confused with the word ‘patients’ due to the similarity in pronunciation between the two tems. However, these two are vastly different in nature wherein patience is considered to be a ‘virtue’ one ought to uphold.
Jean Jacques Rousseau, the eminent philosopher had said, “Patience is bitter but its fruit is sweet.”
