Two Main Principles of Self-control
Everyone goes through moments where they wonder whether they could have handled the situation much better. There in fact are times where we lose our self-control and seems that we don’t have any idea on how it had happened and on why we have done it. 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 in fact is about two principles to where the first one is in observation. One of the best ways in understanding anything in our life is through observations. During the time that we start observing, it’s also the time that we start to understand on how it works. We usually like to observe other people, but we don’t pay enough attention to observe ourselves.
Every morning after waking up, one of the things that we do would be to look in the mirror. We later then observe ourselves so that we become better prepared in interacting with society. This also is the same principle that we need to observe our own character, actions and beliefs so that we could become sure that we will be prepared in having self-control.
Listening is also another principle. For most of the times, we tend to want people to listen to us, but we usually forget that we also need to listen not just to others, but also to ourselves. We actually feel and think of something at any point in time. By listening, we could then understand what really constitutes to something. When we listen to half on what we think and on what we say, we then could understand if we are really making sense or not. Self-control in fact is not about on how you handle the outside world, but it actually on how you handle the inside of it. Anything that really needs control should be understood. We simply just cannot say that a person will need self-control without the individual understanding what 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. With the capability to regulate impulsivity and reactivity to various life events, it contributes to lending strength to self-control.
