Komphela: South Africans Are Not A Patient Nation
Steve Komphela Has Highlighted How Impatient South Africans Are
Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela went on to explain how one needs time to see success.
The 50-year-old is yet to win a piece of domestic silverware since joining up with Amakhosi, however, with his contract coming to an end on June 30, this year, it seems that there could not be any time given for him try and salvage success at the club.
However, Chiefs still have the Nedbank Cup up for grabs and are set to battle it out this weekend for a spot in the final of the competition.
Speaking to the media, Komphela gave an in-depth explanation about how in order to see success, things need to take time.
“South Africans are not a patient nation, I don’t know whether I don’t know the whole world is in a culture… everything is instant, instant gratification. That’s why people don’t want to go to school. 'My man, I’m going to spend 12 years after finishing that I must do in 3 years', people say 'no, why should I go to school when I can do a tender and rich', but there is no quality in that person. The best quality is in the time and investment you make in knowledge and people don’t have that. The quality of success is in the principles where you root in the pillars strongly so,” he said.
“When I make an example of a bamboo tree again, they will say to me, but this guy! Five years this tree, the seed is underneath the ground for five years but in 8 months as soon as it breaks, the ground it goes 80 metres. That’s God, has (a) vision, even yourself. The process of success you don’t just, you are not born and become a man with teeth and everything and when you go through the principles of nature, it’s all about patience,” he added.
Chiefs will do battle with Free State Stars this weekend for a place in the final of the Nedbank Cup.
