Proverbs 25:28
Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control.

Self-control —-the ability to exercise restraint or control over one's feelings, emotions, reactions and your impulses.
Self control begins with what you believe and is maintained by what you trust. Life begins by believing what important people tell us about life and the way we live. It starts with setting a standard for a foundation of how we see life. Every person and then parents have a basic philosophy they live and teach by to maintain order in their world. They past these on to children to help them to maintain the life style in their world as well as to set order in the child world to come. They control their order by how they view their thoughts. Their feeling come from how they view things around in relationship to themselves. Their emotions come from past relationship with a thought or expectation of pain or pleasure. The way we react to a thing depends on our outlook for that thing and the way we response to things are according to how we preparation to encounter those things. When it come to self control and impulses, impulses choices come from usually thinking that this is a right now choice that I have to make for me.
Self control is a matter of making a choice about yourself that you want to improve on for you. You see, nobody can make a choice for you unless you agree to choice to follow the choices of someone make to fulfill their desire or use for you. As Russell W. Davenport said ,
“Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done.”
You are in control of what on the inside of you, what you decide to do with that is up to you.
