I recently had a great conversation on the value of continually cultivating personal mastery in the pursuit of longer term goals.
Check this perspective from Mischel.
“Self-control is crucial for the successful pursuit of long-term goals. It is equally essential for developing the self-restraint and empathy needed to build caring and mutually supportive relationships. It can help people avoid becoming impervious to consequences, or getting stuck in jobs they hate. It is the ‘master aptitude’ underlying emotional intelligence, essential for constructing a fulfilling life.”
Where do you already demonstrate self – control?
How did you get to that point with those areas already developed?
What’s one area where you’d value having more self – control?
P.s build it up over time. It ain’t an overnight radical transformation process.
