Even woman I see in their late 20's andearly 30's are convinced that their time is up and must have a child thismoment. This stress, brought on by their impatience, is the best contraceptiveI know. So often, the moment I suggest her and her husband take a vacation, shecomes back pregnant.
I have a friend who is extremely successful inseveral areas of his life. Yet, because he is not a millionaire, he feels he isa failure and is pushed by this fear created by his impatience and therefore,is blinded by this anxiety and restlessness. In turn, he is constantly makinghurried (and often wrong) business decisions, which, set him back further thanwhen he started.
