Discipline and delaying gratification are two major keys to creating success and abundance. Learning to resist temptation keeps us focused on the goal and trains the mind to manage impulses. Sometimes avoiding pain and discomfort is the most beneficial move, other times the best course of action is to walk head on into it.
We will encounter obstacles that grow if left unchecked. Either because the degree of difficulty compounds, or because we become more discouraged and psychologically defeated the longer we ignore the problem.
Cultivating discipline allows us to approach these situations with confidence. Delaying gratification teaches us to side step temporary comfort in favor of a deep satisfaction that is attached to longevity.
Anyone who can successfully root these two principles into their daily operation will exponentially multiply opportunity and favorable results.
