This is Entrepreneurs of Faith, a Sunday episode of Monetization Nation. I’m Nathan Gwilliam, your host. In today’s episode, we’re going to discuss the attribute of patience based on a sermon given by American scholar, educator, and religious leader Neal Maxwell.

Maxwell explained, “Patience is not indifference. Actually, it means caring very much but being willing, nevertheless, to submit to the Lord and to what the scriptures call the ‘process of time.’”

As entrepreneurs, we often have to be patient for success. According to Freshbooks.com, most small businesses take at least two to three years to become profitable and only become truly successful once they’ve hit the seven to the 10-year mark.

Seven years is a long time to wait for success. We may get discouraged and want to quit. However, we should trust in the Lord’s timing. “When we are unduly impatient we are suggesting that we know what is best—better than [God does]. Or, at least, we are asserting that our timetable is better than His,” Maxwell said.
