"The Consequences of impatience"

As most of you know, I have been an entrepreneur and self-employed businessman since March 1971 (46-PLUS years) and one of the many lessons that I have learned from that experience is the need to have patience in your business-life. Patience has been one of my virtues, and it has served me well. Patience is also something that you can develop and it is a necessity if you intend to stay in business. The consequences of impatience includes broken promises and dreams, troubled relationships, compromised integrity, stunted character growth and loss of the ultimate best in the pursuit of an immediate pleasure (like closing the deal). These traits along with the lessons of impatience as identified in the Discovery Series booklet What Does the Bible Say About Patience concludes with the adage "Don't sacrifice the permanent on the altar of the immediate".

I invite you to join the members of the Chapel Hill Leads Group this Wednesday morning and to witness for yourself the positive attitude that has made us the longest-lasting (19 + years) business referral group throughout the Triangle Region.

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
