What is it that you know you should do?
Doing what you know you should do is almost never easy but it’s often worth it.
We live in a world enamored with getting instant gratification. Likes on Instagram, the feeling of buying a new car, you name it. However, my favorite type of gratification is delayed gratification.
Why Delayed Gratification Is Important
Delayed gratification is the ability to resist the temptation of an immediate reward in favor of a larger or more meaningful reward later on. It is an important skill for personal and professional success, as it enables individuals to set and achieve long-term goals. It also improves decision making and reduces impulsivity.
People who are able to delay gratification are generally more successful in life, as they are better able to resist temptation, overcome obstacles, and persist in the face of adversity. Additionally, studies have shown that the ability to delay gratification is a strong predictor of mental health, self-control, and resilience. It also can be helpful for children development too. It is a key part of emotional intelligence, which is essential for effective communication, leadership, and teamwork.
For me, the littlest habits were challenging to do consistently so the habit journal below helped.
