for Positive Leaders--The Profit Power of Patience: What You Say Is What You Get(R)

Hello, Positive Leaders!
From Dr. Linne for Positive Leaders:  The Positive Profit Power of Patience
Benjamin Franklin said  "S/He that can have patience can have what s/he will." (updated pronouns)

How patient are you?  Is your patience/impatience adding to or subtracting from your bottom line? Are you rushing from meeting to meeting, just skimming the surface?  This is Old Power.  New Power stops and listens for deeper layers and better solutions.

In our fast world it is easy to forget the benefits of patience, and indeed this has been a challenge for me as a future visionary..I can see it done and wonder why it takes so long for others to see it and implement!  
Yet I have also learned to slow downand think more deeply, ask deeper questions, take time to understand more deeply...and from that, larger business projects and deals
show up for me...and clients and colleagues who are willing to do the same.

As I say, "Only depth gives you freedom."  Dr Linne's Power Quote

Many believe they don't have the time for depth...but they have time to incur the costs of "hurry up and do it over"!
Sadly I have seen many examples of CEOs trying to rush through a deal without the foundation built, only to see them lose hugely.

One did not feel he could afford the few thousand dollars to hire me to evaluate and help choose his executive team.  Cost: three years of lost revenue, many millions of dollars, a very poor business plan written by an unqualified financial person, legal costs and losses, and huge amounts of stress and the British say, penny wise, pound foolish.

Another did not stay in touch during crucial periods in his business and lost most of his business...I could have told him one of his deals was much too risky, but he did not return phone calls or emails....was in a crunch, did not feel like he had time to talk.  Very expensive mistake.

What is hurried impatience costing you?

Taking time to communicate...with patience...can prevent and resolve many issues which would otherwise be deal-breakers.
Working on a large and wonderful project, we have had much back and forth about the documents needed, and delays.
Had I not worked on my impatience for many years and achieved more patience within, I would be frustrated and nervous...but I held to our positive vision and the CEO called and assured me again that he wants very much to work together and documents will meet everyone's needs. 

Having more patience gives me with my patience,  and gives you with your patience, these powerful benefits:

1.  The joy of the project and all the good it can do for so many.
2.  The joy of future projects together...he has more than this one.
3.  The joy of building the relationship, both on the same positive leadership page!
4.  More confidence that this will work out for project and financial good for all of us.
5.  More inner space to experience that this is a great benefit for me as well as for the client.
6.  Much less worry about whether this will come to fruition, and much less stress on my body.
7.  More relaxed mental space to add more layers of value to the client and others involved in every communication.
8.  More relazed mental space to track the details of the documents required and ensure accuracy/protection, so we all have a great foundation.
9.  More creative mental space to reach out to more possible clients with positive energy and programs, and enjoy the process!

Can you list more???

How well do you give your business the benefits of patience?  Do you take time to go deeper or are you rushing from meeting to conference call?

How do you rate on patience?  1=low, 10=High...what is your score?

Can you claim patience as a strength?  If not, work on it every day...this takes focus and practice but is worth it.

Wishing you peace, patience and prosperity!
