Suffer Now or Later
Everything has a price.
Being lazy and watching TV instead of working on a business, has a price…
You accomplish nothing, get lazy, and possibly become overweight.
The reverse also has a price.
Working on a business now instead of being lazy on the couch, requires hard work.
So now, let’s compare the two.
Again, they both have a price.
One brings you pain now and unlimited freedom and pleasure in the future.
The other brings you pleasure now but unlimited pain later.
Do you see what’s going on here?
We often pick “instant” gratification over “long term” gratification.
Instant: Watching TV
Long term: Building a business
What’s interesting is that they both have the same price: PAIN
However, the price of one is due a lot sooner.
…but has WAY more rewards and pleasures than the other.
No matter which route you choose…
You’ll be uncomfortable.
You’ll work hard.
It’s up to you if you want a little pleasure now and a lot of pain later…
Become overweight, work at a job you hate, not learning anything new.
Or if you want pain now…
Hard work, sacrifice going out with friends, and save money.
Which will grant you a lot of please later…
Money, freedom, being your own boss.
You and I will suffer no matter which option we choose.
I have chosen to work hard now and suffer a lot less later.
I have chosen to delay gratification now in order to have bigger rewards later.
Will you join me?
