Welcome to our motivational Quote of the day for Thursday October 7 2021, and today we are going to review and explain a quote from ‘Stephen Covey‘.

Quote of the day

“Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender; it’s holy ground. There’s no greater investment.” 

Stephen Covey.


According to our quote for today, the result of patience is growth, or rather self-growth.

But we don’t have to take this word literally. Because age and growth are two different things.

Someone might be 50 years old and still act like a 10 year-old.

‘Maturity is of the mind, and not of age’

I guess that’s the best way to put it.

And a matured mind always lies in wait for the right opportunity; to execute the plan, to strike and then to win.

And what else keeps him company during the wait, except patience.

That patient dog lying down there watching Jack trying to finish the bone, has perfected it’s plan of taking it.

And just a mere second of Jack looking away, the dog and the bone is gone.

If the wait was not in vogue, or if the dog had rushed it; Jack would have prevented it from getting the bone.

But all thanks to perfect timing, made possible by patience.

Maybe that’s how the patient dog always eat the fattest bone.


Dear friend, life is no rush because you might be prevented by things or men from getting what you desire.

But if you always learn how to be patient, and ensure the coast is clear before you strike.

You will always come out triumphant.

And that is self-growth, the best investment you will ever make for yourself today.

Have a nice day!

Hope you don’t mind also reading our morning quote for today below.
