“Maturity is achieved when a person postpones immediate pleasures for long-term values.”
~ Joshua L. Liebman
You can’t grow into a wise, admirable and capable person if you’re not willing to invest in the time and energy it takes to learn the necessary requirements to become a mature being. As we travel along life’s path, we encounter situations and circumstances that allow us to mature. Sometimes, we are faced with making choices that involve doing something that would mature us over doing something that would bring us instant gratification and/or some reward. If you accept the instant pleasures, then you are short-changing yourself. Choose to grow through maturity, which is always more rewarding, more inspirational, and more fulfilling.
