Self Control

People with self control:

Master their moods - a lot of the things that gets done in the world is accomplished by people who do the right thing even though they don't feel like it!

"A person without self control is like a city with broken down walls - Proverbs 25:28"

Watch their words - they put their mouths in gear before taking off.

"Be careful what you say and protect your life. A careless talker destroys himself - Proverbs 13: 3"

Restrain their reactions - can you withstand a lot without losing your cool?

"If you are sensible, you will control your temper. When someone wrongs you, it is a great virtue to ignore it - Proverbs 19:11"

Stick to their schedule

- determine how you'll spend your time or else others will spend it for you. "be very careful, then, how you live - not as unwise but as wise -making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil - Ephesians 5:15-16"

Manage their money - they learn to live on less than they make and invest the difference. your budget should tell your money where to go rather than you wondering where it went!

"In the house of the wise are stores of choice foods and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has- Proverbs 21:20"

Maintain their health - with healthy body, you can attain greater heights and live to enjoy your achievements. "Learn to appreciate and give dignity to your body - 1 Thessalonians 4:4"

...It takes more than just will power to have long lasting self control; It takes a power greater than yourself... "God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and self-control - 2 Timothy 1:7"

.."All things are possible with God." - Mark 10:27
