Opportunity cost –

the benefits you could have received by taking an alternative action 

Whether to reap the comfort and benefits of the moment,

thus gambling the future,

or postponing the temporarily enjoyment to invest

in ensuing days for pleasure exemplify the mental struggle

initiated in every teenager’s mind.

Success is an underlying goal every human possesses

“Patience, persistence, and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.”

Contradicting perspective views success as present virtue -

"You only live once. That's the motto, YOLO."

True success,

and unintended consequences are not a factor in life
