If someone lacks patience, the way he perceives the root cause is a key factor in how he will approach seeking a solution. Looking at a lack of patience as being rooted in factors over which one has no present control is not the most effective and efficient way to find a solution.
Consider this: "I'm not patient because I haven't yet mastered this mental skill." This attitude will motivate you to gain mastery.
(from Rabbi Pliskin's book "Patience," published by ArtScroll - www.artscroll.com)
