Yay! January payday is finally here! It's been one long old month 😂😂😂 last night, i finally sat down and put together a spreadsheet for my outgoings and savings... I'm not sure how i feel about pretty much every penny being accounted for at the moment, but i have to keep reminding myself that it's all going to be worthwhile to be able to continue studying... I'm loving the pots I've set up on my Monzo account where i can set goals and track the progress. Last night, i reached my goal for books and I'm almost half way for the course fees... i feel so blessed to have the income I do and the freedoms this affords me... #homeopathy #homoeopathy #money #finance #budget #delayedgratification #saving #spending #freedom #selfdiscipline #student #student #monzo #progress

Did you know that the main reason it’s hard to eat healthy is because feeling healthy is a long way away but the cinnamon bun is so very close!

Wow Google sent me these reminders of our sick little boy last year at 3 months old. Look how far he has come in 12 months! I got a shock looking at these photos - they're not easy for me to see. How quickly we can forget pain we lived if we look for joy. Some people might think we are silly for our choices, or even irresponsible, they say. They say they couldn't have a sick baby it would be too hard - and it was hard! But what a reward he is to us and there is *no way* he wasn't worth every moment. There are two paths we can take in any given situation: one is the path of avoiding pain in the moment, and the other is the more difficult path of delaying pleasure for a bigger purpose. Our cultural norms encourage us to seek quick solutions and temporary comforts—simply, whatever it takes to ease our discomfort. In doing so we fail to see that delayed gratification is where the real joy happens and solutions to our problems lie. There is always light at the end of the tunnel and we are never left alone 🌄💕 . . . #delayedgratification #theluckyfew #wouldntchangeathing #forwantofwonder #upsyndrome #chromosomallyenhanced #homiewithanextrachromie #nothingdownaboutit #morealikethandifferent #blessedwiththebest #theupsideofdowns #thisiswhyweadvocate #Heartwarrior #downsyndromebaby #specialneeds #downrightcute #downrightperfect #downsyndromelife #downsyndromecutie #downsyndromepride #downsyndromemum #dsdn #DS #DSfamilylife#trisomy21 #t21 #downsyndrome

At what point does a pampered child become spoiled? At what point are we, as adults pampering ourselves until we've overdone it and become spoilt? A simple message, with some thoughts hopefully stir awoke. To me, reflecting on this brings me to the answer, it is the the moment gratitude goes missing. NEVER get used to the good things. NEVER get used to the love, to the wealth, to the success. The only way to remain grounded or pampered, and never arrogant or spoiled, is to know the IMPERMANENT nature of life. As for kids, simpler messages like saying please and thank you, are a part of the training for delayed gratification. Happy rest of your day! ✨

Someone very wise told me to focus on myself, my training, my education, and my craft until opportunities arise so once they present themselves I would be ready to receive and excel in them. He teaches me the importance of delayed gratification. The hard work occurs now so I can reap the fruits of my labor later. I am constantly training my mind and my body daily so I am prepared at all times. I advise you all to do the same. Respect the process. #delayedgratification #thinkpositive #speakit #thinkit #doit #motivation #inspiration #growth #growthmindset #mindset #positivity #positivevibes #positivemind #positivemindset #believeinyourself #believeinyourself #health #wealth #fitness #lifestyle #fit #getfitjaz

His school #Fresh-Ed measures kids on their independence level. I love this approach because kids are able to work to be more independent rather than smarter than other kids. Every child has a different level of understanding. How good someone is in academics doesn't necessarily mean they are better than anyone else. I believe that all children and adults can master a skill if they put their mind to it. Studies have shown that having grit is more valuable than having talent. Let's teach our children to never give up when things get tough. Delayed gratification will benefit them in the future. #children #delayedgratification #independence #kids #school #homeschool #hardwork #nevergiveup #selfgratification #learning #growthmindset

STUPID MONEY MISTAKES! Do your #employees also make them?😳 Here's one of the most painful, stupid money mistakes I made as an employee. Looking back, I can declare, IMHCO, that the chief cause of employee poverty is financial stupidity, not lack of opportunity. #prudence is the first of the four Cardinal Virtues! If you fail in this virtue, the rest are compromised. As part of my leadership work with companies, I can completely disrupt and rewire the thinking of your employees through my Four Cardinal Virtues Coaching Program.

Hands up if you’re guilty of wishing Spring would hurry up already? 🙋🏼‍♀️ Super hypocritical of me, as I must tell Prim, “don’t wish your life away” at least once a week when she talks about summer holidays, starting school or ‘being older so I can stay up late’. So I empathise fully with both Miyuki *and* her grandfather, in today’s book. 🌺🌷🌸 On the first day of spring, Miyuki is eager to see a peony - still tightly in bud - open. Her grandfather gently reminds her to be patient; the flower needs the purest water to help it bloom. Impatient, she visits a well, bringing up a large toad, who advises her to wait for rain. She simply cannot wait, and climbs up into the clouds herself, armed with a bucket. Again, no joy. The waterfall advises her to wait until nightfall, which is simply too long! When a little boy shares some water with her, she is so keen to get back to the flower that she trips and spills the water. Soon, the first day of Spring has passed and Miyuki sleeps, exhausted by her labours. The following day, her grandfather reminds her again to be patient; she doesn’t want to waste another day. Finally, she sits with him and waits. Her patience is duly rewarded when the peony opens, in all its ruffled, resplendent glory. 🌸🌷🌺 My love for this book is STRONG. The messages about delayed gratification, learning from our elders and the splendour of nature are beautifully presented, and the story itself, partnered with the most exquisite Japanese-inspired illustrations are breathtaking. But the icing on the cake for me is having a book dedicated to the magnificence of the peony, my favourite flower and the main reason we chose to get married when we did, in the six-week window of peony season! 🌸🌷🌺 Children will recognise themselves in Miyuki, and parents empathise with her grandfather. This one is a real art and I’m now on the lookout for Time For Bed, Miyuki. Thank you Hannah at @abramschronicle for this @papress beauty. . #PatienceMiyuki #roxanemariegalliez @sengsounratanavanh #japanesestyle #delayedgratification #firstdayofspring #newbeginnings #peonies #intergenerational

Portrait of a scientist with an attitude. Doing research definitely cultivates endurance. Working on the tedious (and sometimes extremely frustrating) task of cloning and sequencing cell lines that I’ve genetically modified with CRISPR, to prove that the edits I want are there. Once I validate that my gene of interest is deleted, I can start doing some really cool experiments I’m super excited about! Until then, you can find me somewhere under a stack of 8,000 LB plates 😬 Staying focused on the end goal keeps me grounded and positive while trudging through responsibilities, experiments, and classes I’m not exactly thrilled about. What strategies do you use to build up your endurance? Also, currently accepting prayers, affirmations, and positive vibes ✨

❇️ In a day and age where instant gratification is all around us, it’s more important than ever to understand and implement the process of delayed gratification. - ✅ All successful people at some point in their life are required to make a sacrifice in order to reap the rewards in the future. - ✅ If you’re in your 20s it may mean working hard now to escape the 9-5 when you have a family. - ✅If you’re in your 30-40s it may mean that you’re putting the blocks in place to have a fulfilling (and early) retirement. - ❇️Whatever your ‘why’ is, understand it, stick to your goal and play the long game. #propertyinvestor #investing #delayedgratification #earlyretirement #familytime #freedom

There are two things that financial success requires: ✨patience & delayed gratification.✨⁠ ⁠ ⁠ The wealth you dream of building won’t happen overnight. It will come from years of making small but mighty decisions on behalf of your future self.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ Having the income or the net worth you desire means being willing to make little sacrifices now, for a greater enjoyment down the road.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ...And don’t worry: that definitely doesn’t mean having nothing to enjoy now! You can still live a satisfying lifestyle, while still delaying some (not all!) gratification.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ The best part? Knowing that the best is always yet to come! 🤩⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #attractabundance #abundancemindset #wealthmindset #moneytips #moneygoals #moneymindset #moneymagnet #moneyinspiration #moneymentor #savvybusinessowners #9tothrive #womeninbusiness #financialplanner #financialindependence #financialcoach #masteryourmindset #liveyourbestlife #starttoday #gratefulliving #selfdevelopment #personaldevelopment #patience #buildingwealth #delayedgratification #moneylessons #moneyhacks #liveyourbestlife #liveyourdreamlife

🦋 T H E : M E T H O D 🦋 - Learning to go through the pressure is all part of what it takes to becoming the people we are created to become. Regardless of how heavy it may be, God has a master plan ahead of all of us and HIS will for our lives is what will always stand. How you handle the pressure will determine the manifestation of the treasures in you and ahead of you. I am learning everyday, that the battle strategy of God to accomplish what He has planned for my life is different from the battle strategy I may have for myself. As painful as it may be, I have to adhere and not question. Sometimes in the early hours of the morning when it's just me and God, I find myself crying. But I have resolved within myself that my confession will always be..."Nevertheless, not my will but your will be done". It all comes down to faith and trust. BE SENSITIVE TO THE METHOD OF YOUR BATTLE. What has God asked you to do that you've neglected because it didn't sound good in your ears? Sometimes, it could be to just "Be Still"! Who are we to question God. It is well! Caption @lucymambu #Sensitivity #Obedience #DelayedGratification #Assignment #Instagram

The Marshmallow Test is a test for delayed gratification. Do children prefer to delay getting 1 treat now to have 2 treats later? Turns out many do, and follow-up studies show better stress management and greater success by delaying things that satisfy you. However, the other side looks at living in the moment. We often are always tied up in feeling the past or the future. But if we were to live every moment, we would feel more present with our senses at their fullest. What is your style of gratification? Do you celebrate small accomplishments every step of the way or wait for 1 big reward? #voiceyouropinion

I appreciate the acknowledgment, the key takeaway from this email for me is one word, #Commitment I've been on this financial elevation journey consistently for 4 YEARS! None of my success and progress has come from spectating on the sidelines. I literally had to be about it and take action. I started 33K in debt with a credit score of 458 and I was sick when I found that out. When I was ready to make a positive change I went in head first, one step at a time. I didn't necessarily know how I was going to do it all the time, I only knew I was going to do it! When I say "if Q can make it happen, you can make it happen" it's not just a cool catch phrase (even though it is lol) it has meaning behind it and I truly believe it! 🙏🏁 . . . . . #QMakesItHappen #BeAboutIt #DebtFreeCommunity #DebtFreeJourney #DelayedGratification #FinancialFreedom #FinancialLiteracy #FinancialIndependence #MinorityMindset #CreditMatters #BlackExcellence #SelfImprovement #BetOnYourself #Commitment #HustleAndMotivate #DoTheWork

• worth the effort • We live in a world that’s driven by instant gratification. If I want organic, healthy food, I can use a website that drops it off for me at my door in two days. We can literally order anything online, and get it in two days using amazon. But the stuff that really matters, the things that can affect your life long term, they take time. It takes time to create a solid relationship with your significant other. It takes time to be an amazing parent to your child. It takes time to put in the work and lose x amount of weight. We always eyeroll about how long it takes to get those things. But we all know, the life we really want takes time to build. So why are we so resistant to putting in the effort when there’s proof around us that it will always pay off? You deserve it to yourself. #putinWORK #instantgratification #delayedgratification #worthit #pushyourself

Fresh off Saturday’s board game night, here are some top adulting tips you can learn from board games: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Diversify: Never put all your eggs in one basket. Never shoot all your shots at the same person. Likewise in investing, never put all your money in one stock. If you work in the energy space, invest more in non-energy companies especially if you have employee stock options. Spread your risk to minimize your risk of loss. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Multiple income streams: Millennials and side hustles go hand in hand like Jim & Pam, or Shaq & Kobe, or Cap & Bucky. Not having your income tied to a single source is beneficial especially during economic downturns. A side hustle is also a great way to pursue your passions! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Negotiate: For the next car purchase, mortgage application or new job, be patient and reasonable when negotiating. Compromise and be willing to give something up to get something else. Most importantly, be prepared to walk away from the deal if you don’t feel comfortable. Sometimes, the best deals are the deals not done. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4. Location: In real estate, location creates desirability. Desirability leads to an increase in demand, which in turn increase real estate prices. A property in a strategic location sells easier throughout the market cycle. Proximity to your office, major roads, amenities and your boo are all factors to consider! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5. Think long term & adapt accordingly: Everyone should have a financial plan that covers short, medium and long-term financial goals. It’s true, we only live once but strive to live in moderation. The more you spend lavishly today, the longer you’ll be working towards retirement. Also, financial plans change when life changes. When (not if) the unexpected happens, adapt, keep calm and carry on with your plan.

So I really wanted to fuck everything off yesterday and max out, I wanted to angry lift tbf.... But I didn't, I stuck to the plan. Why? (apart from the fact I respect my coach/the program) Over 40 years ago, Walter Mischel, PhD, a psychologist, explored self-control in children with a simple but effective test. His experiments using the “marshmallow test,” , laid the groundwork for the modern study of self-control. The experiment - a child was given 2 choices wait for the researcher to come in and have 2 marshmallows or ring the bell, the researcher will come back but you only get 1 marshmallow. Not only is this an experiment of will power/self control but also delaying gratification. Especially within strength sports we have to learn and understand to delay all forms of gratification (self and from others), it's something seen alot especially with powerlifter, going off program, maxing out, whether it be because we haven't PBed in months, emotional, we're in an environment which where we want to "hype up and go big" or even just because we want a big lift or pb so we feel the program is working. All forms of gratification and validation. I think it is vital in strength sports we learn and understand to delay gratification. Learning the art of delaying gratification I think has alot of positive impacts, it learns us that the process is far more important than initial impulses, learns us to be humble, to wait for the right moment where we can truely benefit, to trust the process and also not to get caught up with whats happening either around us or on social media, to stay the course, I think those that understand and practise delayed gratification will go a lot further and I think it shows a true athlete. #thoughtsoftheday #selfcontrol #delayedgratification #psychology

Instant pleasure vs. delayed greater pleasure (“the marshmallow test”) . Many may have heard of the following experiment since it is one of the most famous in the history of psychology. Today I will proceed to describe it in order to explore its implications in future posts (sorry if it feels too technical). . In the 1960’s Walter Mischel and his team decided to put a group of 4 to 6 year old children in a very difficult situation: they would have to take a pick between a small but instant reward (e.g.one Oreo) and a larger reward (two Oreos) which would be given to them after a pretty tough 15 minutes. They had to stay alone in a room in front of a desk with two sole objects: a single cookie and a bell (that they could use to express their surrender). Keep in mind there were no toys, books or any other possible distractions (don’t worry about the ethics of the study, the experimenter was someone the child would trust, they first played together and did return to the room when a child showed any signs of distress, so.. all good). . Results: about half the children made it through the 15 minutes. Why? How? 🤔 Well, they used various strategies but one that was very recurrent was keeping their attention away from the sweet treat (doesn’t matter where: their shoes, hands,a wall or a doorknob, some kids would ever cover their eyes with their hands). Over a decade later, the follow up studies showed a greater gap between the kids who waited and those who gave up. The patient ones measured higher IQ tests and had more ability to relocate their attention efficiently. This has as a result a much lower probability of engaging in high risk behavior (such as drugs intake) and higher ability to cope with stress and so on. Note: We do not intend to portrait these results as deterministic, they give a whole lot information about a group but very little or non about individuals (not all kids went the same trajectory in follow up studies) . Think about all this as you wait for the next post with conclusions, tips and more.. let’s test your own ability to delay gratification 😄 . #marshmalloweffect #selfcontrol #masteringselfcontrol #waltermischel #delayedgratification
