The Slovenian joined Cardiff on a four-year contract in the summer from Maribor, but has appeared just twice as a substitute.
The striker has not featured in over two months and concedes he is not happy to be out of manager Malky Mackay's plans.
However, he believes he has a bright future in South Wales and the 23-year-old is prepared to bide his time before making the breakthrough.
"It is true that I have played less than I expected," Velikonja told Sportal.
"When I arrived in Cardiff, it was all excellent. I played in all the matches before the start of the season, I scored a goal at Newcastle United, but then it all changed.
"When I got back from Slovenia duty, I moved to the bench. I cannot be satisfied but my position is not alarming yet.
"I'm training good and I'm progressing. The club says that they are happy with me.
"I believe that I will soon get a chance. When I get it, I'll take it. It is not always the way you want it, but I do not lack self-confidence. I know that I will succeed."
