How my students exhibit self control.
Self control is working on my anger and not to hit or kick my friends when I’m mad. My self control is to have responsibility for my actions. My self control is how to learn to calm myself down when I’m upset.
Self control is to practice on my karate moves. Self control is to listen to my teachers and what they are telling me. Also, self control is telling someone I’m sorry if I did something I shouldn’t have done to my friends.
Self control on my emotions and feelings. To talk to someone if something is bothering me and also let someone know if someone is giving me problems or are picking on me.
I learn self control in the things I do. I’m in control of doing the right choices and of my actions and not making bad choices. I’m in self control on working hard and practicing, so I can get better.
Also being responsible control. Controlling our emotions when we are very upset with someone that we don’t do something that we shouldn’t do and control words we should not use, especially b ad words when we’re mad at someone. Also working out tough situations we deal with at school and home.
I think it means not getting irritated when things don’t go my way. Letting someone else go first when I really want to. Not yelling or talking back when I’m angry. Staying and listening when I get upset and want to leave. Doing stuff I don’t want to do, calmly.
I have exhibited self control at school. While playing soccer during recess, someone got ran over. I told him to be careful and he shoved me to the ground. Instead of returning the favor, I walked away and told the teacher on duty what happened.
Another place I have exhibited self control is at taekwondo practice when my sister Noelle and I are sparring. We get caught up in it and it could easily go too far, but we have to use self control to keep it from getting too aggressive.
Self control isn’t always used to prevent something negative from happening, it can also be used to help people do positive things. For example, when I am playing basketball, I use self control when using the proper form to shoot, instead of just just throwing it up there and hope it goes in.
All over the community I witness self control. Some use it well, but other don’t Be the bigger person and use self control wisely.
Self-control is an extremely essential attribute to have. The definition of self control is ‘the ability to control oneself, in particular one’s emotions and desires or the expression of them in one’s behavior, especially in difficult situations.’ In my own words, that means being able to control your feelings and actions whenever and wherever you are. However, this is easier said done.
When you exhibit self control, it is always important to realize no one is perfect. Also, making a plan of what to do in any situation helps a lot. Self control can be shown anywhere you are; whether it be at church events, at school, weightlifting, at youth group, playing sports, or even at your local Walmart! Though it may seem like it is a useless quality that you will find anywhere you go, self control is vital; and like every characteristic is that is vital, it is not always easy to exhibit.
Yes, using self control can be extremely hard, but an attempt should always be made to exercise self control, no matter what situation you find yourself in. Here are a few examples of when it would be a good time to exhibit self control from my personal experiences.
* At school, rather than talking to my friends (which seems much more appealing to me) I use self control during class to pay attention to the teacher(s) and do my assigned homework.
* At home, when I’m working on my homework and my brothers begin to annoy me, rather than yelling at them and letting myself get aggravated, I do my best to keep cool and exhibit self control. Though I’m not often successful, trying to calm down is always one of the most important steps. (Failure leads to success.)
* When I’m playing sports, (any sport, actually) I can use self control by keeping my temper in check when it seems the referees are making unfair calls against our team. Self control is not always used to keep something bad from happening, though. Sometimes (for example, when I’m about to serve in volleyball) I must use self control to properly serve the ball and concentrate while I’m doing so.
* When weightlifting, self control is crucial because if you lift without the proper form, you can easily damage your back and/or other muscles. Also, some people, if they’re hurt, need, when they’re weightlifting, to reduce the weights for awhile. You should never overload yourself; self control applies to very many things.
* You can even use self control at Walmart! When you are going shopping and are hungry, usually, you tend to buy more food than if you hadn’t been. If you are shopping at Walmart and see those Little Debbie treats down the aisle, self control will help you to turn away from the treats and buy more healthy/useful items. When I go sopping anywhere, I always find myself longing to have something that’s on sale. Then I ask for it and that usually drive my parents crazy. In order to ignore the temptation, I have to use self control. It really does help!
When you’re exhibiting self control, it doesn’t matter the place or the time. Self control applies to everything – from good thoughts to bad, tempting thoughts! However it is not self control if it’s somebody else controlling you. Self control is all on you; it’s your choice to make; it’s your own self control. When you exhibit self control, you can’t expect someone else to keep you calm. Self control is all about you controlling your own self: you emotions, your actions, your words, etc.
Self control. We all long to live in a life without temptation, but sin has entered our hearts and we fail to see the big picture. God gave us a gift that we can use to withstand temptation. Now all we need to do is use it.
I think good self control is keeping your hands to yourself and not getting in other’s space. I think I do good with self control at class by sitting still and not messing around while other students are breaking boards or testing. I also have been trying to do better at standing at attention during the bow in. I also think eating healthy is a good way to show self control. I always eat fruits, vegetables, and meat for lunch and supper to make me healthy. I can have candy, cookies, ice cream once in awhile but not too much. I like chocolate and candy and it can be hard sometimes to not eat too much. Also if someone is making me upset, I try to ask them to stop nicely even if I want to punch them in the nose. I don’t want to get in trouble too, just because they are being naughty. I want to keep practicing and training hard to get my black belt.
In my line of work, I have to exhibit self control all of the time. I can’t throw a fit or argue with inmates when they don’t do what I ask. I have to control my frustration to diffuse the situation. In school, I have to have self control by making myself write extra or do extra research instead of the bare minimum. I have to have self control when eating as well. As much as I may want to eat a whole cheesecake, I limit myself and have control over my impulses.
You have control of yourself, meaning you do what you know you should when you don’t want to, even though you want to do something else and give up on your assignment and do the other thing instead, like if you can do soccer, or play football, if you like, or lacrosse if you like lacrosse, or even karate, if you like karate, but self control is when you know the right thing to do and do it, even if you still want to do something else, you still do the right thing even if you still don’t want to, you still do the right thing anyway.
