Introduction: The Key to a Magnificent Life
Learn Patience From the Impatient


Patience is the key to a magnificent life. It is the foundation for reaching goals. With it, one can learn, accomplish, develop one's character, and interact harmoniously with other people.

The more we increase our patience, the more we benefit.

Chronic impatience destroys one's life. Even milder forms cause much pain. Impatience causes stress. It breeds anger and limits what one will learn and accomplish.

But unlike your height or the color of your eyes, patience is a skill that everyone can learn. The effective formulas, interesting stories, and insightful comments presented here are designed to help you master this skill. The easy-to-read format will upgrade your own patience, as earlier volumes in this successful series have done for Happiness, Kindness, and Courage.

Do yourself a favor. Be patient. Read and reread this book.

The inner calm and persistence you gain will be valuable resources in every area of your life.
