From a Stanford study in the ’60s – researchers found that children who chose to delay gratification for the purpose of greater incentive were broadly more successful later in life. This was later revisited by researchers to determine why. The later researchers found significant links between innate discipline and that which is trained or taught. Training, diet, and overall success in life is largely related to habitually making yourself choose the more difficult and rewarding path. This can be developed and trained, just like any muscle or movement, it gets better with repetition. Every time you set your mind to getting to the box and follow through on it you are trimming the path to success and after a while it becomes a well groomed trail. We are certainly about strong bodies but even more about strong minds and strong lives, it’s the whole picture that matters.
