A patient man has never seen one of these.

Patience. It’s a virtue … right? Fuck patience.

“But Chris, I have big goals, they’ll take time. I have to be patient.”

Fuck patience.

Patience: the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.

Did you read that? Accept or tolerate — fuck no. I’m a firm believer that the language we use shapes the world around us. I like to choose my words carefully ( I sprinkle plenty of fucks in between). Patience is about suffering and I don’t like to suffer. So fuck patience.

You may have big lofty goals and it will take you years — maybe even decades — to get to where you want to go. That’s fine and I would never suggest being delusional and imagining you can go from 0 — multi millionaire in 2 weeks. With that being said — if you want to achieve those goals you need to move like your pants are on fucking fire more often than not.

This means understanding it might take years to park that Ferrari in your driveway but taking action each day like your going to fucking implode if you don’t get it by tonight. It means knowing that you aren’t going to wake up with abs after 1 workout but doing crunches like you’re Gym Shark sponsorship starts tomorrow.

I want you to understand things take time but act like you have to get it TODAY. Because the present is all we have … so make it fucking count. Fuck patience.
