The 21st century is an era of instant gratification. It’s difficult for most people to be patient and wait for good things to happen to them as a result of their hard work. Instead, people tend to spend their downtime trying to seek purpose through social media or online shopping.
However, fitness will have the exact opposite effect on you. It will teach you that good things can only come through hard work and dedication, whereas the little satisfaction that’s attained by making pointless purchases is short lived. When your time and energy is so focused on fitness, you’ll forget all about that gold-plated watch you’ve been looking at online.
