Take the path of most resistance - Deepstash

Take the path of most resistance

“There is no failure except in no longer trying.” - Chris Bradford

Every second you're making a choice. It's a hidden choice to live your best life or live a life of mediocracy. 

The best life is doing things over short-term pleasure or just taking the path of more pleasure. However, by taking resistant paths more and more, you elevate to a higher state. 

Time inconsistency is the fact that we as humans like to value short term gratification over long term benefits. It's a natural part of us. However by learning to suppress it we can accomplish everything we've ever wanted for our future self.
