Crushing your goals with the secret weapon of Self-control!
Self-control is about controlling your desires and impulses while staying focused on what needs to get done to achieve your goal.
The Thrive Mini-guide: Self-control helps us understand that self-control gives us freedom!
Nope, that’s not a typo.
Self-control is all about taking control of our desires so that we can achieve happiness in our lives and meet our goals. Amazing things really do happen when we learn how to order our desires towards legitimate good and a well-balanced life. It’s not about complete self-denial, but rather about living our lives in such a way that we are free to say “yes” to the good because we are well-versed in saying “no” to the bad.
The goal in helping our children become “self-controlled” or “moderate” is reached when they can decide for themselves a dream to pursue and then have enough of the habit of moderation to say “yes” to the enjoyment of some fun when it is legitimate and “no” to it when it interferes with their goal. The result—kids who grow to become joyful, productive, successful, and live in greater unity.
LEARN. ASSESS. LIVE.
