EP 224 – How Delayed Gratification Is Key To The Success Of Young Athletes


August 8, 2018 by Tola

Delay gratification might not be term you’re used to but its key in sports. In this chapter of Athlete Maestro, I break down how delayed gratification is key to the success of young athletes.

The art of delayed gratification and the consequences faced if you do not learn early is something every athlete should be weary about.

Athletes must learn to sacrifice in order to achieve.

Listen to this episode to find out why kids who delayed eating their marshmallows did better on the SAT’s and how a catastrophic construction mistake was avoided.

Learn how to start small in regard to trainings and diets. Also remember to remind yourself of the consequences of your actions.

Lastly, I expose why I record this show weeks in advance and how it fits into todays lesson!

This episode is all about teaching how to apply delayed gratification and how delayed gratification is key to the success of young athletes. Listen in.

Remember, knowing is not enough you must apply, willing is not enough you must do.
