According to Wikipedia…

Deferred gratification or delayed gratification is the ability to wait in order to obtain something that one wants.

Conventional wisdom considered good impulse control to be a personality trait important for life success.

The marshmallow experiment is a well known test of this concept conducted by Walter Mischel at Stanford University. In the 1960s, a group of four-year-olds were given a marshmallow and promised another, only if they could wait 20 minutes before eating the first one. Some children could wait and others could not.


The researchers then followed the progress of each child into adolescence and demonstrated that those with the ability to wait were better adjusted and more dependable (determined via surveys of their parents and teachers), and scored significantly higher on the Scholastic Aptitude Test years later. Notably, Mischel later found that easily explained tactics allowed children who had waited very short periods to wait for quite long periods.

Okay, okay, I know what you are thinking… there is definitely a relationship between delayed gratification and success in network marketing – for that matter – in any business.

Short term are you prepared to make sacrifices? Are you prepared to delay gratification in order to make your networking business successful?

That choice is of course yours!

Here’s to YOUR success!
