Remember: No problems, no profits. No problems, no intimacy. No problems, no trophy's. Nothing of value has no obstacles in its path.
A good sign of how secure you are is what it takes to "offend" you. The more secure we are, the less we take offense.
There is a difference in patience and avoidance. Patience is waiting for a good reason....avoidance is waiting out of fear.
People who are happy know that their happiness does not depend on external factors, but internal ones. They know that if they are not happy in a small town, they won’t be happy in a big one until they resolve whatever inside is making them unhappy. As we’ve noted before, they know that unhappy single people become unhappy married people. They know that if they have not found their passion and meaning, no future job can “give” it to them. They know that if they cannot be intimate in their current relationship, they would repeat the same pattern in another one. They know that more money will not make them happy and will not fill the emptiness of their life. So, they do not give in to fantasy and move somewhere in a search of a “new life.” Instead, they get healthy. They make an internal life change, not an external one. They own that even if they move, even if they get rich, even if they get married, they will still need to work on their issues. Successful people, in all of those categories, know that only as they get healthy will they thrive and find the external life they desire. They know that trying to move forward without aligning the internal life is folly.
