“Self-conquest is the greatest of victories. Mighty is he who conquers himself.” – Bruce Lee
Self-control is the most difficult habit to develop as well as Self-decipline. It requires more patience or some gone through sacrifice. But if mastered, it is the greatest of qualities one posses. It takes overtime to master it – but great!
Most great men or I say some Holy men successfuly conquered themselves. They are those silent type and wise. They know how, when or what to react. They are proactive!

In my journey of self-conquest, I am still on progress. I’ve done lots of mistakes and sometimes doubts. But thankful to those people whom I learned with. Those are my: family, friends and colleagues. But most of all I learned from those good books I read and those inspirational speakers I heard. These can influence a lot. 👍🏻 Of course reading thoughts from blogs as well.
I hope all of you are well and blessed! Happy Thursday everyone!
