As humans, we are wired to seek pleasure and to avoid pain.
Cookies; Nutella; and Netflix.
Soft couches; sleeping in; and social media.
Push-ups; Lettuce; and Cardio.
Reading books; rising early; and writing blogs.
When given the choice, instinctually speaking, we will choose cookies over push-ups.
Or Netflix over cardio.
Or social media over writing blogs.
Unless we learn learn the power of delaying gratification.

Then on a cold wintry evening, go back through your journal, the ideas that changed your life, the ideas that saved your marriage, the ideas that bailed you out of bankruptcy, the ideas that helped you become successful, the ideas that made you millions. What a good review–going back over the collection of ideas that you gathered over the years. So be a collector of good ideas for your business, for your relationships, for your future.” ~ Jim Rohn
