January More Than Words: Self-Control

This month, we are talking about SELF-CONTROL: Choosing to do what you should even when you don’t want to.

From a rational perspective, it’s kind of obvious that we need self-control, but it’s less so when we are in the heat of the moment. When your kids are fighting, when an employee calls in sick again, when your car won’t start, when a cupcake stares at you from the bakery counter…all of these are difficult situations in which to show self-control, even though we know we should.
