There are two big enemies of success, happiness and personal fulfillment.
The first is “The Path of Least Resistance”. This is what causes people to take the easy way in almost every situation and seek shortcuts.
The second is “The Expediency Factor” which says that people invariably seek the fastest and easiest way to get the things they want, right now, with little or no concern for the long-term consequences of their behaviors.
In other words, people do what is fun and easy rather than what is necessary for success. In many ways, this is even worse as far as leading people to underachievement.
Successful people make it a habit to do things that other people don’t like to do. Successful people are also more concerned with “pleasing results” whereas unsuccessful people are more concerned with “pleasing methods”.
How can you practice delayed gratification, the ability to put off satisfaction in the short term in order to enjoy greater rewards in the long term?
