The Importance of Patience and Faith

I’m truly not a very patient person. I like to get things done and I like to see the results right away. Life just doesn't work that way, unfortunately. As a result, I’ve had to learn to have a whole lot more patience, especially with myself. Some of the projects that...

How to Stay Focused
