The Skill That Separates Those Who Succeed From Those Who Fail

Do you ever have a sudden urge to do something, even if it might turn out to be a bad choice in the long run?

Maybe you’ve bought gear using debt (damn that retailer and their credit card offers)…

Two years later, not only do you regret buying the gear, but you’re still paying for it every month!

When making a decision, thinking about delayed gratification is key across many different aspects of your life.

Maybe it’s a donut, maybe it’s a relationship, maybe it’s your business, or maybe it’s your mental health…

But most of the time, making the hard choice now will be better in the long run.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Why most successful entrepreneurs have extremely good self-control
  • How practicing delayed gratification can boost your business, career, and personal life 10x
  • Why your physical and mental health are not to be taken lightly
  • What the 10/10/10 framework will do to make your life easier
  • Why you should avoid debt in almost every situation you could face
  • When a degree from Soul Fail University might actually be good for you (it’s not the right path if you want to run a music studio)
  • How hiring a business coach could potentially launch your business into the stratosphere
  • Why finding some form of accountability is a huge step to making responsible choices
  • Why you need to choose hard/easy over easy/hard when facing a decision
