If there was one virtue that could alter the quality of your life, it might be patience. It has become the norm of our fast-paced world to expect everything to happen instantaneously and for us to become immediately aggravated when it doesn't. The restult is that we feel frantic and rushed, stressed and unhappy. Now, in The Power of Patience, Mary Jane Ryan teaches us how to reclaim the forgotten virtue of patience on a daily basis, and demonstrates how doing so allows us to make better decisions and to feel more positive about ourselves every day. The Power of Patience follows the classic format of short chapters built around a quotation, a story and a lesson. Ryan explores the Gifts of Patience, the Beliefs that Foster Patience, The Attitudes of Patience and the Practices of Patience. You'll learn that Patience Creates Excellence, and that Being Here Now can lower your anxiety and can help you to decide whether it is really necessary to act out of a sense of urgency.

From the Back Cover:
If there is one virtue that could alter the quality of your life, it is patience. In this high-pressured, fast-paced world, it has become the norm to expect things to happen instantaneously and for us to become immediately irritated when they don't. The result is that we lose sight of the truly important things in life and feel frantic, rushed, stressed and unhappy.

Now, in The Power of Patience, help is at hand as bestselling author M. J. Ryan reveals the inner attitudes and practices that will help to foster this forgotten virtue. Recognizing that it's not enough simply to try to be more patient, she reveals how your happiness in love, your joy in the moment and your satisfaction with yourself will soar if you:

Put the situation into perspective...
See the value in working at something to achieve excellence...
Acknowledge that there is more than one right way...

Ryan shares the best practices of those who have harnessed the enduring power of patience - from test pilots working under extreme emergency conditions, to athletes struggling to maximize their performance - and offers a range of impressive techniques that will allow you to discover the simple truth that yes, you have all the time you need.

Practical, inspiring, and complete with motivational stories, The Power of Patience is a wonderful gift of wisdom we can give ourselves today - a gift that will unlock the door to a more fulfilling and positive future.
