To Increase Self Control

  • Recognize resistance
  • Every effort to change encounters resistance
  • It is easy and natural to change your mind and behaviors when you are young
  • A toddler rarely resists learning to walk instead of crawling, to run instead of walking
  • As we age, we develop strong views and perspectives that are resistant to change
  • Any effort to exert self control must consider resistance
