Impatience is the one quality in myself that I would most like to "erase". It pushes me to be intolerant and unkind. When I consider soul development, it might be the lesson I came here to work on! I do agree with owl that discipline would be helpful in realizing past life goals. I possess a sort of dogged persistence that most people lack. It keeps me coming back to problems and puzzles that are hard to solve. If that qualifies as patience, it can be a help in unraveling past life issues.
