Show Notes

The secret to educational success is quite simple! DG!

The secret to a close relationship with Jesus is simple and includes DG!

The secret to having a happy marriage one day: DG!

The secret to financial success is another simple plan! It is two little words that pack a big punch. The secret to financial success is….delayed gratification.

Delayed Gratification? What is that? Well, it means to postpone what you want, to wait and work for what you desire to obtain.

In Our Imagination

Example of the Airline Owner.

But we live as if our little scenario is possible because we want a successful life, but we sabotage ourselves with instant gratification.

What We Do To Shoot Ourselves in the Foot

See, here is what we do. We want something right now! We have to have it so we take what we have and spend it all on something we kind of want.


Delayed Gratification in a Nutshell

SO basically, in a nutshell, delayed gratified is doing the hard work first and the fun stuff we long for second.


Let’s meet some people who took delayed gratification seriously.

Hall of Fame for Delayed Gratification

Hebrews 11:13-16

Relating DG to Trusting God’s Goodness and heart to bless us.

Have We Prayed?

Examples of Waiting on God and Praying.

There are so many “quick and easy” ways out for us to take.

How difficult it is to set our eyes on the Lord and wait. This act of waiting is delaying gratification.

We experience delays in what we desire, building self-control and godly character in our life.

While We Wait on God

What do we do while we wait? We cry out to God, listing our petitions with Him, knowing that His heart is to provide our needs and bless us with our desires too.


Building the Delayed Gratification Muscle

Ways to build that delayed-gratification muscle.

The bottom line is this: Now you know the secret to success in every area of life. What will you do next?
