No matter what anyone else says, it is up to you in succeeding. Patience is a virtue we all have a big challenge with, however when your time comes to hit, it will be bigger then you expect. Ask yourself where can I put the highest value with the current and future relationships? Learn to ask questions with honest intent. People can see clearly behind your actions. Sincerely care about them and show knowledge in what you have to offer. Make it special and show you are highly valuable. It is time for a shift for the better.
