You face the same decision all day long.
It may look a thousand different ways, but it is the same decision over and over again.
What is it?
The choice between the short and the long term.
It pays to take the long-term view in most situations.
The road may be hard and painful, but it is worth it in the end.
So much of what you desire in life comes down to how often you take the long-term view.
How often can you endure short-term discomfort, and pain to achieve lasting results?
How often can you set aside your personal feelings and do the right thing?
How often can you say, “No” to sugary lies and choose healthier foods?
Long-term thinking takes what is immediately seen as the hard road knowing that it will one day pay off in better health, better relationships, better finances, a stronger body, a better life.
