Why you should delay pleasure!
Wait, isn’t pleasure a good thing?
Why are you telling us to withhold it Zac?
Well guys, I’m glad you asked,
Instant gratification is EVERYWHERE.
No great achievement was ever built on instant gratification, the cornerstone of anything worthwhile was molded from DELAYED PLEASURE.
We are often SLAVES to addiction. ⛓
Imagine a world where we got instant pleasure for anything we wanted.
We wouldn’t feel the need to grow, create or do all that much would we?
What a crazy world that would be right?
In today’s society, it’s so easy,
Smart phones, smart tv’s, fast food, porn..
That’s why every now and then it is ESSENTIAL to take a break from your phone to reset dopamine levels.
I make it a goal once a week to spend time off my phone in the real world.
And if I can’t do that, to have cap off times where my device goes into airplane mode.
It really helps to reset my focus on what lies ahead, in the real world, not the virtual one. 🌎
Save those dopamine hits for things that matter!
🏽 Like hitting PR’s in the gym,
Spending time with family
Building a new business
🥘 Breaking your fast with clean food.
🌲 Going for nature walks
Don’t be afraid to go without for a couple hours, hell even a couple DAYS. To really become present with where you are.
To look at how far you’ve come.
Look at how far you’ve BEEN.
Realize how lucky you are to be given the opportunities you have.
You’re alive, you’re breathing and you have the ability to envision what the future will bring.
You have the ability to TAKE ACTION 🏽
THAT is power.
THAT is reassurance.
THAT is all you need to succeed.
What do you do to help you stay focused, to help you keep your eyes on the prize?
