Weekly Meditation: Self- Control

Self Control 
> Galatians 5:22 CSB

"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control."

Brian Tracy
"Your ability to achieve your own happiness is the measure of success in life. Nothing is more important. Nothing can replace it. If you accomplish everything of a material nature, but you are not happy, you have actually failed at fulfilling your potential as a human being.
Human beings are purposeful, striving toward achieving goals and end results. However, behind each goal lies another goal, and then still another goal, until you finally arrive at the “prmium movum,” or first-moving force, in human life. This always turns out to be the desire to be happy. You can only truly be happy when you practice self-discipline, self-mastery, and self-control.
It is only when you feel that you are in complete control of your life that you are truly content.
You feel happy to the degree to which you feel you are in control of your own life. You feel unhappy to the degree to which you feel you are not in control, or controlled by other factors or people." (From the book No Excuses!, p. 213 -214)

2 Peter 1:3 CSB
"His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness."
