Patience helps us persevere, reduce stress, and overcome challenges. Self control is being able to control our emotions, impulses, desires and actions. Both patience and self control are vital for your health and well-being.
Patience And Self-Control Are Super Powers
We've all heard the phrase "patience is a virtue." But how many people take the time to deeply consider why patience is important? Patience is a moral virtue, a moral excellence that conforms to ethical principals, rectitude, and good conduct and behavior. Self-control is the mother of all virtues. Both are vitally important for your integrity and well-being.
Being patient and remaining self-controlled is difficult for many of us. Having the ability to wait for something that you want, or to not lash out and become annoyed or upset when someone angers you can be one of the hardest things for us humans to accomplish.
If you are a patient and self-controled person, you are able to stay calm and not get annoyed or lose your temper and become hostile, belittle or yell at someone that has upset you. Patience and Self Control is a mark of a mature person.
These 2 Superpowers are essential for growth, your physical and mental health, and your overall well being.
Being impatient causes stress, and chronic stress has detrimental effects on physical well-being.
In order to control ourselves and have dominance over our desires, we need to practice patience without which self control will avail nothing.
"A man without self control is like a city broken into and left without walls" (Proverbs 25:28).
Self-control is really significant. To not have self-control is to expose your life to all kinds of trouble and danger and could cost you dearly.
It is important to remember that patience can help you in so many ways and it helps everyone, everywhere.
