I came across this quote a few weeks ago. I had seen it before but I had forgotten what a powerful message it contains:
“True wellbeing comes from learning how to tolerate momentary discomfort for long term satisfaction.”
Think about that for a minute… see if you can think of a moment in the last day or so when you chose to eat something you didn’t intend to or skip a workout that you had planned on – all in the name of a momentary reward — or to avoid a moment of discomfort.
Being able to see which momentary discomforts are worth pushing through in our life can really allow us to flourish and meet our goals = long term satisfaction.
