Try to be calm
The wise man readily exercises patience because he realizes its benefits, and knows that he will be rewarded for his fortitude

"All good things come to those who wait." I've found that to be true so many times in my life. However, I have also realised that going out there and getting, achieving and travelling never hurt either. I learned that patience is a virtue, but waiting too long for something is commonly referred to as laziness. If you realise this simple fact from the beginning, you can make patience your best friend. If not, then patience can become your nemesis.
Every person has to exercise patience in order to face difficulties, whether he does so willingly or not. The wise man readily exercises patience because he realises its benefits, and knows that he will be rewarded for his fortitude. He is aware that if he is impatient, panicking and impatience, he will miss everything.
Fate also has a small, but important, role to play. In most cases where patience is required, a situation is inevitably out of your control. A wise man once said, "Whatever is decreed cannot be prevented from happening, and whatever is decreed not to happen can’t be made to happen." So an attitude of impatience and panic actually causes harm in such instances. Take an example of being stuck in a traffic jam; it is time when you should exercise patience, although it might seem difficult at first.
We've all had the unpleasant experience of being stuck in traffic, sometimes for hours, impatiently waiting for the car in front of us to speed up so that we can go home as soon as possible and enjoy a nice, mouth-watering meal that we've been craving all day long. Sound familiar?
The best thing you could do in a situation like this is to simply accept the inevitable: you're going to be late.
