The conscious leader practices patience.

She knows that nothing lasts forever; that everything moves in waves. The whole universe, from its tiniest quantum particles to its pulsating galaxies, moves in waves. In human terms 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.

When they are not present she does not panic and decide that something is wrong. She also does not slack off or give up. She continues as if they are present – and waits. She knows that hard times will pass and that the feeling – and the reality – of success, just like the summer, will return in its own time.
