“Two things define you: Your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything.”
– Imam Ali

At work and elsewhere, at different times and in different ways, we all sometimes feel unfortunate for what we don’t have. And, too, at certain times and in certain ways, we all sometimes feel quite fortunate, as if blessed even more than we deserve. Surely, you’ve noticed this in others, but have you considered how others perceive you? As the Imam says, that is how you can define yourself . . . and you should understand that so many others will do so, too, without your knowing it. Recall that patience is a true virtue, and arrogance is close to a sin, and no-one – including you, or me – is purely perfect. Remember, too, that we are all “poor” and “rich” in different ways.
Susan B. of Windsor, Connecticut sent us this very useful thought. I thank her for doing so, and will keep the thought in mind, as I hope you will, as well. Thanks, again, Susan.
