The Power of Delayed Gratification


  • Delayed gratification is the practice of denial, detachment, or removal from something that you want.
  • Waiting to eat cookies until after dinner is a simple example of delayed gratification.
  • ‘Waiting to achieve’ is another form of delayed gratification when other priorities take precedent.
  • Delayed gratification is important because it’s a form of discipline.
  • Accomplishing a dream or a goal requires discipline to achieve. Keep in mind that part of that discipline is delayed gratification.
  • Practicing delayed gratification allows for a better life, a better lifestyle, peace and harmony.
