Fear masquerading as loyalty

Don’t confuse patience with loyalty.

Some of the best decisions I made in my life was when I had the patience to hang on.

The best outcomes have been when the fundamentals were strong, my gut and brain were aligned, and I’ve stayed on the case even when times got tough. Without patience and the courage to stick with it, I would have flaked and lost out in the long run.

Some of the worst decisions I’ve made in life are when I’ve hung on too long because of loyalty. The truth is that that the underlying reason for the loyalty was my fear of the unknown.

Ask yourself what you would do if you weren’t afraid. If the answer is to continue, then that’s fine…onward. But if it’s move on, then maybe it’s time.
