June 19, 2015


In 1960 Walter Mischel a Stanford Psychologist instituted the marshmallow test. In today’s echo I talk about the powerful principle we can each learn from this. Regardless of if you or I would have failed or passed the test when we were 4, we can still implement it’s meaning NOW in our lives. We live in a age where instant gratification is everywhere. Why do you think our country is so far in Debt? Why are so many living paycheck to paycheck while driving escalades and each child of the family has the latest iPhone? Why do we have to have it now? What can we do to stop this behavior? It really is quite simple. DELAY GRATIFICATION….. Watch to learn more.
