For those of you who didn't see the Stanford Marshmallow Experiment Video in Relief Society last year
you can view it here: 

The Stanford marshmallow experiment was a study on deferred gratification conducted in 1972 by psychologist Walter Mischel of Stanford University. A marshmallow was offered to each child. If the child could resist eating the marshmallow, he was promised two instead of one.  The scientists analyzed how long each child resisted the temptation of eating the marshmallow, and whether or not doing so had an effect on their future success.

President Uchtdorf used this example in his conference talk 'Continue in Patience', April 2010
