Delayed Gratification for Improving Long Term Self-Worth

October 15, 2015, Jon Boldireff

I’m guilty. I tirelessly use my iPhone to get updates on the score of the Blue Jays game. I check Facebook for updates on things I don’t even care about. I eat a delicious chocolate chip cookie 5 seconds removed from the oven. Why? Because I want it NOW. (The scalding hot milk chocolate chips burnt my mouth).

Technology in today’s society has given us the ability to have everything we want at our finger tips. It can be useful, but it robs us of the satisfaction of delayed gratification. We don’t have to work as hard to get things. This makes the world of fitness extra tricky because that magical weight loss pill hasn’t been invented yet. You have to work hard and remain dedicated for months (or years) to get the results you want. Check out this video from Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, Jurassic World):

Inspiring, right? What were you doing May 15th, 2015? What if I told you, if you had started a fitness regimen with me training 3 days a week, while making healthier food choices until October 15, 2015 you could have:

  • Lost 20-25lbs
  • Decreased your body fat %
  • Increased your total body strength
  • Would need to go shopping for a new wardrobe (hidden cost of changing your life)

If you started today, you’d be a new person by April 15th, 2016. It’s not instant, but feeling accomplishment you’ll get from this journey will make you feel like you can achieve anything.
