Make the Almighty's Will Your Will

The ultimate formula for mastering patience is: "Make the Almighty's will your will."

Those who internalize this will automatically and spontaneously be patient. Repeat this message to yourself over and over again. "I will make the Almighty's will my will."

-- "If it's the Almighty's will that I need to wait for someone, that too is my will."

-- "If it's the Almighty's will that I need to repeat myself, that too is my will."

-- "If it's the Almighty's will that I need to wait until I find out some information, that too is my will."

(From Rabbi Pliskin's book, "Patience")
