I've learned that self control is one of the key factors in our lives in order to be successful. Having self control teaches us patience and we often receive positive outcomes. While viewing the lectures I saw a video of children being given a marshmallow. The children were told if they wait and do not eat the first marshmallow they will be given a second one as a reward. This video goes to show that having self control often ends in rewards. The children who controlled themselves and did not eat the marshmallow were rewarded with a second marshmallow. Another example of having self control is the amount of time we speed on our phones or on social media. When we put our phones down we tend to be more productive compared to when we sit on our phones all day. We have to control ourselves in order to get things done.
