The ART of SELF-CONTROL


self control

Can you control yourself?  Can you control on minimize your emotional bond something on command or after relative factors?  How well do you know yourself?  These are a few questions people in control of their lives and abilities can answer easily.  We as people should work on discipline and teach our children the art of self-control.  It’s a very useful tool that can help you within your life.  Having self-control helps in many factors in our lives such as quitting a habit, ending relationships, knowing what your values are in situations, staying focus, motivation and much more.  When you are in control you can always dictate your outcome more towards your liking.  In life somethings are unavoidable, but wouldn’t it be a strength and great value to have when you can turn on or off your actions to various situations that includes your involvement?

Definition:
Self-control is the ability to control one’s emotionsbehavior, and desires in order to obtain some reward, or avoid some punishment. Presumably, some (smaller) reward or punishment is operating in the short-term which precludes, or reduces, the later reward or punishment. In psychology it is sometimes called self-regulation.

  1. the ability to control one’s self is a lifelong ordeal. there will be areas and situations where self control is easy. on the flip side, when something is enjoyable, exercising self control can be a challenge. learning to control yourself, I feel, is just another facet of evolution. it’s ongoing and so very necessary.

    1. Thanks for that. You are right, it’s an on ongoing challenge. We learn based on trial and error at times. Mostly we learn when we change and not make the same mistakes. I learn by reading, observing and asking questions of situations I not in to prepare a outcome I could control. Thanks for the comment. 🙂
