Do you have the power to tame the wild best inside of you? It’ll take self-control.

Key Points:

  • Self control is choosing what’s right when you’re tempted not to do the right thing.
  • Without self-control, you’ll make bad choices and head down the wrong path.
  • Grow in self-control by: Taking a time out, look at the bigger picture and practice self control in the little things so you’re ready when the big things come along.

Quote This:

“Self-control – what lies in our power to do, it lies in our power not to do.” – Aristotle
