Self Regulation is What Makes Self-Control Possible

Understanding and learning the difference and relationship between self-control and self-regulation.

"Self-control is about inhibiting impulses; self-regulation is about identifying the causes and reducing the intensity of impulses and, when necessary, having the energy to resist... [Self-regulation] is what makes acts of self-control possible... Self-control is important but not the central organizing feature of a strong, healthy mind, and life success. Self-regulation is."
