Self-control is a double-edged force: when it's strong it builds confidence; when it's weak it builds fear.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

When we exhibit self-control we build our own confidence and this can be contagious, with confidence spreading from one person to the next.

When we exhibit lack of self-control our confidence shrinks..and this too tends to be contagious.

Battles require people; People require battles.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We all have heard it takes two to tango. Tango requires people...two. Battles require people...at least one.

Battles are a fact of human nature.

The question is: Do you back into battles or do you pick them well?

Is logic in action when you select your battles?

Does self-control determine your battles and how you fight them? Do your battles align with your strengths?

Like Beauty, Fairness is in the eye of the beholder.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Fairness - an admirable motive...but, one that has a really difficult time surviving both delivery and receipt.

Fairness - a thing that tends to be torn between biased perspectives.

The rest of the world will treat me unfairly...OK...I will live with that.

I will treat others unfairly...OK...I will live with that too.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We human beings have a curious habit. We tend to express problems in ways that conceal the real sources of our 'pain'. I suppose our egos make us play word and mind games...prettying up our real problems with make-up so other people will view us in [what our egos hope will be] a better light.
