Delayed Gratificaton


Successful people invest in themselves. This investment takes three forms:

  1. Taking a risk with their time and money, with a very uncertain outcome.
  2. Devoting time, every day, to learning and perfecting a marketable skill.
  3. Creating something of value to society.

These investments take time to bear fruit and often requires dedicating time every day toward this investment. This may come at the expense of doing pleasurable things in the short-term, but in the long-term the payoff means having more time and more money to enjoy life. Delaying gratification until their efforts pay off is a cost successful people are willing to bear for a better life down the road.
