On this journey of living a happier and positive peaceful life, I’ve learned that the key component to stay focus and grounded in knowing and obtaining what you want is SELF CONTROL. Yes self control has a lot to do with living positive. You have to figure out what control means and how you use it or react to it. We can sometimes confuse different ways of control when most of the time we don’t have self control to control anything else in our lives, so we must take the necessary steps to gain self control so we can be a bit more peaceful.
WHAT DOES SELF CONTROL MEAN
The meanings of Self Control are: CONTROL OR RESTRAINT OF ONESELF OR ONE’S ACTIONS, FEELINGS, ETC SELF-DISCIPLINE, SELF-RESTRAINT, WILL POWER, LEVEL HEADNESS.
You must not only know the meaning of having self control you must also understand it fully and know when and how to use it.
HOW TO GAIN SELF CONTROL
Most of us already know how to practice self control but we don’t usually use it at the right times or with people we need to use it with. For instance, We all have been in situations were someone or something brings us out of our natural character, like maybe when you felt that you were losing control or power of a situation and you became angry and reacted in a negative or even violent manner, instead of showing that you are completely in control of yourself to handle the things and reactions, only you can handle these feelings and situations for yourself. Practicing self control takes a lot of work because there can be a lot around you that can be going wrong or just going a bit off track that need a reaction from you.
My advice is to CONFRONT the situation or the people that maybe touching on the nerve to steal your control, REMAIN CALM, most people don’t know how to react to calmness so they have no choice but to remain calm themselves, MAKE SURE TO THINK about what you’re going to do or say so that nothing is miscommunicated wrong, STAND FIRM in what your doing or saying and WALK AWAY to keep your calm so you won’t react in a negative way for yourself not the other person.
Bottom line the only person you can control is yourself and having self control shows just how much you care and love yourself so that no one or nothing can get the best out of you because you value things differently. Practice self control daily start by telling yourself that CONTROL BEGINS WITH ME!. You control the things you allow in your life but if you allow something or someone else to steal that power then you lack self control.
