A delay in achieving success shouldn't be a cause for disappointment and instead should be viewed as an opportunity to regain focus, expand one's skillset and reach out to new networking prospects, John Frenaye writes. A slow path to success also helps teach patience, Frenaye writes. "Patience is one of the critical traits every travel professional must have. Think about the time spent on hold and the countless changes made by clients. Take this delay in your success and use it to your advantage," Frenaye writes.
