Delayed gratification

Delayed gratification reveals the character of people.

People will reveal their true selves when you delay the gratification they feel is due to them.

Some will handle it gracefully, and remain committed to you.
Others will handle it violently, and actively try to undermine you.

The story of “The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs” is played out daily.

Even when you give of yourself daily, people will be dissatisfied until you give yourself up.

They want to celebrate your life at the graveside, not while you walk.

Stop rushing to gratify the desires of others. Let delayed gratification help you separate those that really need help, from the entitled.
