You can tell a lot about a person with just a simple marshmallow.
How smart they’re going to be, how successful they’re going to be.
Even how happy they’re going to be.
All with a simple Marshmallow. 2 Actually.
More than 40 years ago, a psychologist called Walter Mischel explored the concept of self-control in children with a simple test, which came to be known as ‘The Marshmallow Test’.
Mischel and his colleagues presented children with a plate on which lay 1 marshmallow.
The child was then told that the researcher had to leave the
room for 15 minutes, but not before giving the child a simple choice:
Wait until the researcher returned, without eating the marshmallow, and when they did, they would receive 2 marshmallows.
Or, if the child simply couldn’t wait, she could ring a bell and the researcher would come back immediately, but they would only be allowed one marshmallow.
These experiments were groundbreaking at the time and laid a foundation into the research on self-control, or how it is otherwise known as,
Willpower can be thought of as a basic ability to delay gratification.
The children in this experiment that displayed good self-control, sacrificed the immediate pleasure of a chewy marshmallow in order to enjoy the indulgence of two marshmallows at some later point.
Ex-smokers forfeit the enjoyment of a cigarette in order to experience good health and avoid an increased risk of lung cancer in the future.
But what if you’re one of those that chooses to take what’s on offer instead of investing in later?
Well, in the Marshmallow Test experiment, those that chose to delay gratification had better health, better academic achievements, higher salaries and happier lives than those that chose to take the immediate pleasure.
You see, when you use the temporary pleasure of things to mask what you truly want, it’s just burying a small ‘pain seed’ in the back yard.
Everytime you feel the pinch of reality surfacing, you bury it and hide it under a shiny new toy, ignoring the inevitability of what’s to come.
Sooner or later you run out of burying room, and now those small ‘pain seeds’ have grown into a big ‘f*%king’ tree for you to deal with!
You can choose to enjoy the 1-dimensional pleasure of temporary things, shiny things that allow you to stay ignorant
You can become a 5-Dimensional Man, INVEST seeds of a different kind and enjoy the rich pickings that a happier, more energy, time & sex filled existence can bring you!
