Quick Tip for Building Self Control

Quick Tip for Building Self Control

Just had to get it out quickly… when you catch yourself seconds from doing something other than what you know you should be doing…


Just ask yourself: “What do I really want to do right now?”

You see, many times, especially when we’re tired or “week” (because we’re stressed, angry, hungry etc) we tend to surrender to our “lower self” and (at least) waste time and be unproductive…

So do your best to catch yourself in those moments and ask yourself that question (above). Often you’ll find out that what you really want is to eat, drink some water or sit down for a few minutes and relax… or something else…

You don’t really want to turn on the TV or browse the web or eat that chocolate or have that 4th cup of coffee … you get the idea.

Once you have the right answer – go ahead and do that thing immediately, without waiting for the ‘self defeating inner dialog’ (that is likely) to begin!
