The conscious leader practices patience.
She knows that nothing lasts forever, and that good things come to those who wait.
She has learned that the whole universe, from its tiniest vibrating quantum particles to its pulsating galaxies, moves in waves. She has observed, for herself, that waves ride on tides.
She has seen that pain, like joy, comes in waves. Similarly, success, achieving targets, being organized, being on top of things, feeling connected, feeling inspired, all of these things come in waves, and tides.
When any of these things are not present, she does not grow impatient, or panic and decide that something is wrong. She also does not slack off or give up. She continues as normal, knowing that the tide is just out—and she waits. She knows that good times and hard times are seasons that will pass.
The conscious leader knows that patience is her best friend, especially in hard times.
