“No more Mr. Nice Guy.”

angry-smiley-mdWe do something virtuous, and we expect the result right away. We become impatient. When it does not happen immediately, we become frustrated and decide that virtue is not so desirable after all.

We become tired of being good, and we say “No more Mr. Nice Guy.” That means that we have given up on waiting for the results of our merit. However, that phrase does not erase the merit we have already accumulated. Sooner or later, our good karma will manifest.
