Show notes

The irony of instant gratification is that if we are so fixated on seeing results now instead of working toward them and trusting the process, it’s likely we’ll burn out or give up before we have a chance to see the results we’re after.

Today’s episode is all about the instant gratification trap and how you and I can avoid it as we manifest our desires. If you take anything away from this episode, let it be this: everything is unfolding in the perfect timing the Universe has planned. Trust it!
