Hello, RT Supporters! Today, we’re going to talk about the significant benefits of delaying one’s gratification.

As time goes by, it is now easier to earn money in this modern generation because of the help of social media.
However, just because someone is already earning doesn’t necessarily mean there’s no need to delay one’s desire.
We are all created equal and the same. We only became separated with each other because of our current status in life.
But the truth is, nobody lives in a perfect world. Everyone has problems and no one is ever been exempted in that situation.
Without further ado, let’s discuss and enumerate what makes the delay truly worth the wait!
Since there’s a lot to mention, I’ll be focusing only on 3 factors.
Peace Of Mind
First of all, when you delay something it gives you peace of mind. Simply because you are not stuck in situation where in, you are still not capable of resolving problems on your own.
Say for example, becoming a mother at the age of 13 is not an easy role. And in general, most teenage moms often ask an assistance either from their family, relatives or to whom they could at least get a support or guidance.
Second is the fact that you delay things give you an ample time to make healthy and better decisions.
As what I remembered and learned from Netflix’s Documentary Film, “The Minimalist” being simple is hard to achieve compared to being easy.
That’s because being easy means you just go with the flow. Whereas, being simple requires a lot of planning and hard work and that’s similar in making life choices.
It’s way easier to follow the norm than to plan things on your own.
But I want to tell you that once you delay your desire…you are not only making your life free from any trauma or stress, but you are reducing the probability of facing such difficulty in life.
Getting pregnant at the age of 13 is not and will never be a wise decision to make.
Not only that you are underage, but that can still be considered as child sexual abuse even though it is not by force and with your consent.
Simply because you are still young and innocent which means that you are prone to being gullible and vulnerable.
Whoever is reading this that is still a minor, I hope and pray that there is someone who will look after you even if you already reached your legal age.
So many people make unwise decisions in life because of the lack of support from their parents or guardians.
One thing I’ve learned from Mom is the fact that I am curious doesn’t mean I have to try it. Experience is not always the best teacher. If it could be prevented, then it could lead to a positive outcome such as by graduating on time, be able to focus on your growth first, and lastly being being able to savor whatever you currently have today.
Last but not the least, when you delay what you desire prepares you enough for greater responsibility in the future.
People will always have problems. However, better things happen to those who delay things because not only that they mature over time, but they become more equipped in solving problems on their own.
They are not just physically, mentally, and socially prepared, but they, too are now spiritually and financially prepared.
Whatever life throws at them, they are now strong and can endure the pain of hardships in life.
Money is not really the cause of evil. If use wisely, it can be a solution to anyone’s problem.
Now, let me ask you a question.
Are you the type of person who delays gratification or consume whatever resources you have right now?
Say for example, instead of saving money for your business, you spend all your money in building a house.
Well, there is nothing wrong in owning a house, however you don’t earn from it. Not unless you both have enough passive and active income to sustain it.
Whereas, owning a business helps you to cover your rent expense, pay for electricity and water bill, and so on and so forth.
Similar to becoming a Mom, it is better to delay the baby first. Rather than having a baby you are not yet ready to shoulder responsibilities with.
So, can you now delay gratification or you still haven’t change your mind?
