Too often we pray to be Patient but we want it ‘right now’! –Robert D. Hales
Imagine if somebody decides to bake a cake. He knows that it will take him, say 30 minutes, for it to get baked. He constantly keeps opening the oven to see if it baked or not and thinks why isn't it getting baked. He knows that this won’t quicken the process but impatience makes him do that over and over again. The baking takes more time and also the cake does not turn out to be like he desired.
The impatience of these people does not let them wait for tomorrow to come. They cannot wait for the things that tomorrow will bring along with it. It worries them and makes them anxious when they have to wait for anything. Hence they are always in a hurry.
Impatience comes when a person is not in the present and is trying to move ahead of time. These people quickly start moving towards the future, the moment they even think of doing something. They start thinking about the consequences of any situation quickly. In their head they have already been through it, and as a matter of fact, they are yet to face it!
Uncertainty of the future makes them restless. This leads them to making unnecessary judgments and conclusions. They always have lots of things going on in their mind.
You must be familiar with the story of Akbar and Birbal in which Birbal found the thief with his witty mind. A robbery had taken place in the house of a rich merchant. The case went in Akbar’s court and he called all the servants of the merchant to find the thief. All of them denied having done it. Birbal thought for a moment and then handed over sticks of the same size to all the suspects and said that the stick of the real thief would grow by two inches overnight. The next day when Birbal asked all of them to show their sticks, the stick of one of them was smaller by two inches and Birbal declared that he was the thief.
How did this happen?
When the real thief heard that the stick will increase in length, he cut the stick shorter to avoid getting caught upon having a longer stick. It was his impatience that made him conclude and take the hasty action which exposed his deed.
These people are very opportunistic but at the same time they might take hasty decisions out of impatience and end up taking wrong decisions many a times.
They are exactly like that thief who felt that he could not afford to wait and watch. As rightly described by American psychologist Carl Pickhardt, "impatience results when expectation of what you want a lot, and believe should happen soon or now, is delayed or denied. Impatience is always in a hurry for something to start or stop. Impatience reduces tolerance for the time something takes, creating urgency for what is desired or against what is not."
Plucking a bud before it blooms won't let you enjoy the beauty of the flower. Be patient and let nature nurture it, for having the best, for your senses to perceive.
Impatience is seen in the 't' crossbars moving towards the right of the stem instead of the stem itself.
