Inner Peace and Joy Tip #45 : Self-Control

Inner Peace and Joy Daily Meditation Tip: The Book of Proverbs is loaded with wisdom nuggets. Read Proverbs 14, pull out the wisdom nuggets and apply them to your life.

Self-Control is going to be key for maintaining your mental state of peace and living a life full of joy because when you have self-control you are able to decide in advance that you are going to have positive thoughts, positive emotions and positive actions regardless of your circumstances.

In order to have self-control you must use wisdom and be disciplined. A wise person has foresight and is able to weigh out the results of their actions beforehand.
If I do this then this will happen and If I take this course then this will happen.

When you are disciplined you are able to refrain from acting on impulse and you are also able to control your emotions and actions. A disciplined person does not get angry when they are in a trigger situation nor do respond negative when in a negative situation. They are prepared to respond with love in all situations.
