Don't Eat The Marshmallow
I was listening to Dr. Kevin Elko's "Monday Morning Cup of Inspiration.
He reminded me of the famous marshmallow story.
Children who could wait fifteen minutes and not eat the marshmallow in front of them,
Did well in Life, Relationships, School, Money, Accomplishment.
Those who gobbled it right up in less than 90 seconds,
Continued that slave to your impulses life style,
Were eaten up by life's tragic results, bad, bad, bad, you name it it went South.
Those who waited more than ninety seconds but less than fifteen minutes?
Average, to mediocre.
We are too old for the marshmallow test, yet eat day how do we do with our impulses?
