Short term pain for long term gain

Short term pain for long term gain

💡  To maximize long term growth, we need to sacrifice short term pain. It is not possible to have long term growth with short term profitability.

And this applies to both our individual lifestyle and the businesses we run… Science shows, there is a reason behind our struggle between short-term rewards and long-term goals.

✅ The “emotional part” of our brain responds positively to instant gratification, whilst the “logical part” of our brain, tries to reason with us.

✅ As an example, if we were given the choice of cake now or broccoli later (or a short term cashflow deal vs a long-term investment in a strategy that grows our business over a sustained period), our emotional part of the brain is likely to push us towards choosing instant gratification.

So how does one then overcome such a scenario

✅ Tie an emotion to the decision - Our emotions overpower our logic, and so the next time the obvious towards instant gratification arises, ask – “Is this really in my benefit in the long run❓”

When we play better games, we win better prizes

When we play better games, we win better prizes

💡  There are two kinds of people we can choose to be in the world — those who play to win short term rewards and those who play the long game and aim for incremental wins. Studies have shown that successful people play the long game.

Similarly, entrepreneurship (and life) itself is all about our actions that are dictated by the vision one has of their future self. This focus is all about amplifying consistent rewards.

✅ Psychologists call this the difference between a performance approach and a performance avoidance mindset.

✅ When we adopt a performance-approach mindset, we are playing to win with a long term strategy in mind knowing the potential rewards of success.

✅ When we adopt a performance-avoidance mindset, our focus is on avoiding mistakes and circumventing danger, and so instant gratification and short-term benefits hang low.

✅ In other words, do we “strive to thrive” OR “strive to survive” ❓

💎 Success in life is not for those who run fast, but for those who keep running and always on the move 💎
