The Power of Patience
This story I am about to share with you will show you the power of patience.
Central to the story is a chilling conversation between Cao Shuang (a descendant of infamous Cao Cao) and Sima Yi (an assistant clerk under Cao Cao who quietly rose to power).
Cao Shuang: "Three ages of our Cao clan destroyed in one day??!!"
Sima Yi: "I may have wield my sword only once in my life but I have spent the last ten years honing its blade."
That my friend is THE POWER OF PATIENCE.
Under Cao Cao reign, Sima Yi was bullied. He was sidelined. He was undermined. He was even accused falsely by his enemies that nearly led to his execution. But instead of giving up, he dug in and wait it out. And a few decades later, an opportunity presents itself and he took it.
The rest was history.
Sima Clan not only destroyed Cao Clan but became the ruling dynasty.
Here's what I have learnt.
Patience gives you inner strength to overcome all odds.
