The Two Basic Principles of Self-control
Everyone actually goes through moments to where they wonder that they could have handled a situation in a better way. There are some times where we lose our self-control and also seems that have no idea as to how it happened or with why we have done what we have done. Self-control actually is an important ingredient for us to achieving success in whatever society we are taking part in. This also could mean the difference in making good impressions or in making one that’s terrible. This also could change on how people perceives you, which likewise depends with how you could handle self-control.
Self-control is actually about two principles where the first principle would be observation. One of the best ways in understanding anything in our life is through observations. The moment that we start observing is the time to where we start to understand on how it really works. We mostly like observing other people , but we mostly don’t pay enough attention in observing our own selves.
Every morning after waking up, one of the things that we do would be to look in the mirror. We then observe ourselves in order for us to be better prepared in interacting with society. This would be the same principle which we need in observing our own character, actions and also our beliefs in order for us to be sure that we are prepared to have self-control.
Listening is also another principle. For a lot of times, we mostly want people to actually listen to us, but we tend to forget that we also should listen not just to other people, but likewise to ourselves. We actually feel and think of something at any point in time. Through the process of listening, we will then be able to understand on what constitutes to something. If we listen on half of what we really think and say, we could understand whether we are making sense or not. Self-control is not only on how you handle the outside world, but it is also on how you handle the inside of it. Anything that really needs control should be understood. We cannot say that a person requires self-control without the person understanding what truly needs self-control.
Every people has the ability to achieve great self-control which will be able to push us towards greatness. You simply cannot copyright greatness. It all comes down to us to see the greatness that’s present in us and that self-control also the initial procedure for any individual for us to achieve it. Our capabilities in regulating impulsivity and also reactivity to different life events contribute in lending strength towards our self-control.
