Money Secrets of the Amish

There were a lot of great “take aways” in this book, but the one principle that hit home was the marshmallow test. In this test, a child was presented with the opportunity to receive an immediate reward or to wait to receive a better reward if they ate the marshmallow or waited until they were given the opportunity to eat the food. Those that waited concentrated on other thoughts rather than focus on the joy of eating the fluffy marshmallow.

The result: those that waited reaped best results in their lives. The results ranged from making better decisions, to achieving higher academic scores and the list goes on and on. The Amish teach their children, very early in age, the importance of delayed self-gratification and have more fulfilling lives, according to the author. I think all of us can use a little more delayed gratification in our lives and hold off on making so many impetuous decisions that can alter our success.
