Delayed Gratification

Sigmund Freud said that a momentary pleasure, uncertain in its results, is given up, but only in order to gain in the new way an assured pleasure coming later.  Delayed Gratification is an important factor of success, as well as the forerunner of achievement and fulfillment.

Joachim de Posada, in this TED talk here, explains how delayed gratification was a good predictor of future success.
