So how did Samsung get to where it is today?

Are you patient? How patient are you? Do you know that patience is an invaluable coping skill? Have you spent some time cultivating patience? Do you recognize the healing power of patience?

How can your patience be strengthened?

It is not easy to be patient because it is in human nature to expect certain things in life in a certain way and when sometimes life delivers these things late of doesn’t deliver these things at all, a human is bound to lose their mind and act out.

The road to achievement is a long one, and those without patience—who want to see results immediately—may not be willing to walk it. Patience is linked to self-control, and consciously trying to regulate our emotions can help us train our self-control muscles.

Patience is the quality which enables a person to accept the delays or shortcomings in life with calm and composed persona. Patience is the quality that makes a person level headed. Patience is not easy to be patient but it is not completely impossible either.

Having patience means being able to wait calmly in the face of frustration or adversity, so anywhere there is frustration or adversity—i.e., nearly everywhere—we have the opportunity to practice it. Patience doesn’t mean passivity or resignation, but power.

Patience can mean vastly different things to different people. At home with our kids, at work with our colleagues, patience can make the difference between annoyance & equanimity, between worry & tranquility.

So how did Samsung get to where it is today? 

We took a look at the company's history, starting way back in 1938 when it was a company that exported dried fish to China.

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Samsung was founded by Byung-Chull Lee in 1938 in Taegu, Korea. The company started as a food exporter in Korea and shipped items like dried fish and flour to China.

Samsung got into other businesses throughout the 1950s and 1960s, including life insurance and textiles.

Samsung Electronics started in 1969. That division mostly made TVs. Samsung's first black and white TV went on sale in 1970.

Keep pushing on. Keep trying new things.

One of Samsung's first mobile phones did not work when it came out in 1995. When Samsung's chairman Kun-Hee Lee found out, he visited the factory where the phones were made and reportedly had the entire inventory burned.
