The Power of Patience

How to Slow the Rush and Enjoy More Happiness, Success and Peace of Mind Every Day

By M.J. Ryan

From the internationally bestselling author and co-creator of the Random Acts of Kindness movement comes a unique and timely guide to an old-fashioned virtue we need now more than ever.

These days we work harder and play less. We expect everything to happen instantly and become aggravated when it doesn’t: the computer that takes too long to boot up, endless queues, meetings that run on forever. The result is that we often feel stressed, overworked and unhappy. The time for patience has come.

M. J. Ryan shows how patience can help us siow the rush and bring more light and love into our lives. It’s not enough just to try to be more patient.

Full of inspiring stories and the wisdom of those who have been there before, The Power of Patience reveals the secrets to reclaiming this forgotten virtue and shows how doing so will help you feel better about yourself every day.
