Happiness now, or happiness later?
Delayed gratification is the ability to give up a smaller but immediate reward in exchange for a larger, more enduring reward later. And studies have linked a person’s ability to delay gratification to how successful they will turn out in life.
In this video, I teach on how and why to develop this skill by examining the life of a Bible character who was willing to sacrifice the present in order to win a future beyond his wildest dreams.
In this episode, you will hear:
- The link between your thought life and your choices
- How to safeguard yourself from making hasty and costly decisions
- Why being a “taker” rather than a “trader” will significantly hinder your progress
- Three powerful strategies that will help you build a habit of delaying gratification and invest in your future
I shared so much more life lessons in this Bible study. It is certainly worth watching in full.
