IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
When you want to learn skills and do good work, impatience is one of your biggest enemies.
There’s nothing wrong with wanting things to happen fast. In fact, that’s one of the main reasons people and companies innovate. But we have to realize there’s a difference between a desire to achieve things and impatience. The former helps you, the latter harms you, especially your creativity.
Big splashes don’t happen. We have to remind ourselves of that whenever we’re impatient.
When you’re trying to achieve your goals, improve yourself, and live a better life, there are moments you want to speed things up. It happens to every ambitious person. People who never do anything with their lives don’t suffer from this.

You can’t change an emotion you don’t own.
Accept responsibility for its existence. Because an external event always precedes your experience of an emotion, it’s easy to assume that the event caused it. But as long as you believe it was externally caused, you are going to be a victim to your emotions.
Emotions are the result of both what happens, and of the story you tell yourself about what happened.
