Patience and Persistence
Practice patience in all things. If the object that you want is good for you then it will come in due time. You may take methodical steps to position yourself well to receive this. But do not get too hung up on the item or it will destroy the other pleasures in life. Remember that life is made up of the yin and yang. Reasonable balance with your desires is the healthy way to make forward progress in life and to enjoy life as well. With that being said, all significant achievements take a slow methodical march to complete. Set out to move forward a little each day and then eventually, you will look back and see you've walked miles.
