I have been very impatient many times in my career. I knew I had the talent or skills to do the “next” thing. However, I had not yet proven myself. It took work to methodically earn the trust of my superiors and my team until they saw I was capable. By that time, I had grown more in my skills and built strong bonds of trust that they gave me opportunities to prove myself…and I was now prepared. Don’t be afraid to be patient.
