Does this make sense?

It needs to be patient to achieve your goals.

No because the dummy subject it doesn't apply here.


Patience is a human trait.
You need to be patient to achieve your goals.


That is a bit odd though - patience is good but on its own it doesn't achieve much. It is not the solution - in order 'to achieve'. If you are talking about achieving your goals then waiting for something is not enough on its own. Unless you believe in some predestination! Or you are a Bond villain.

Years of practice are required to become an accomplished classical guitarist. Much patience is required to reach this goal, since a few weeks or months of practice won't get you what you want. Keep practicing and be patient.

No, it works with "patience" but not with "to be patient".

It needs/requires/takes patience to achieve your goals.
