As one goes through life, at some time or another, he or she can be faced with many challenges ~ especially when it comes to marketing and sales.
Some challenges are solvable; some are in the process of been resolved; yet, others may cause him or her to become bewildered and/or at times, discouraged.
“There is a sort of gratification in doing good which makes us rejoice in ourselves.” ~ Michel De Montaigne
One is pleased when he or she finds resolution to a crisis; but, is this gratification true fulfillment?
"By continually pushing the message that we have the right to gratification now, consumerism at its most expansive encouraged a demand for fulfillment that could not so easily be contained by products." ~ Ellen Willis
If one plays the lottery and keeps losing, he or she will not want to keep taking chances, knowing that they will only end up deeper in debt; they would even change their way of playing and try different methods to see if they can win; or even cutting back, on the amount they would normally play.
“The gratification of wealth is not found in mere possession or in lavish expenditure, but in its wise application.” ~ Miguel de Cervantes
One becomes appreciative after showing kindness to, or helping another in need. It’s always a pleasure to serve and been appreciated for ones service.
“As we get past our superficial material wants and instant gratification we connect to a deeper part of ourselves, as well as to others, and the universe.” ~ Judith Wright
