Are you in control of your life? There’s things you can’t control, like your environment. But are you in control of your actions?
Self-Control is key to a life actualized.
If you don’t have self-control, you are a slave to your past habits and conditioning. I think few people actually mindfully choose their conditioning or habits.
They get their habits from their parents, family, friends, environment. Do you ever look within yourself and ask, “Who do I want to be?”, “How do I want to act?”.
Sadly most people do not, they think they are powerless… they think it’s of no use.
If you aren’t in control of yourself, you are simply letting your environment and other people control you.
