The Key Difference Between Successful and Unsuccessful People
“Most of the challenges that we have in our personal lives come from a short-term focus” - Tony Robbins

The Stanford marshmallow experiment was a series of studies conducted by psychologist Walter Mischel in the late 1960s and early 1970s. In these studies, a child had to choose between receiving a small reward immediately or two small rewards if they waited for a short period, during which the tester left the room and then returned.

Pretty much a study on delayed gratification.

Do you want it now, or are you willing to suffer and wait for it?

The results are interesting, to say the least. Those who delayed gratification scored significantly higher in every area of human competency imaginable. Higher SATs, higher income, better lives.

Pleasure-seeking or being happiness-oriented?

Which one do you choose?

Do you want moderate enjoyment or fulfillment?

Genuine satisfaction or the illusion of it?

How do you think people usually go through life?
