What are the Benefits of Patience?

I came across this quote this morning.  It is another great quote about the benefits of developing and having patience.

“Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success.” ~ Brian Adams

What has developing patience done for you?  I would love to hear your thoughts.
