Do you really think good things happen to those who wait?

I realize this is a statement about patience and perseverance. But is it really true? Sometimes nothing happens to those who wait. Sometimes by waiting too long, you will have missed the boat to an opportunity. It's possible that something bad could happen if you just wait. I am of the opinion that better things happen to those who are productive. You can't just sit and wait for people to come knocking on your door because it may never happen . . . you have to work on it and make things happen for yourself. What would you say about this?
