Let's take all that money you earned by shoveling snow this winter. Did you.... A) save it for something really special and fantastic?! or B) spend it the minute you got it on candy and soda? If you chose option A then you not only are probably playing with a great new X-box (or something even cooler), but you should also feel very proud of yourself! In the scientific world, they call this waiting- delayed gratification. Basically, delay of gratification refers to the ability to put off getting an immediate reward in order to gain a better reward later.
|That marshmallow looks sooooo good!|
Don't get caught up in just the immediate "marshmallows" in front of you now. Wait for the bigger prize!
Enjoy the talk and don't eat the marshmallow!!!
