A lack of self-control manifests itself in a number of ways in a person’s life. “Many people try drugs, hypnosis, and even surgery in their desperate flight from facing responsibility and difficult tasks, but seldom do these methods bring lasting results or the happiness so passionately sought.” It is far easier to place blame on other people, circumstances, or even our Lord for our challenges. Excuses fill their heart and people choose to do nothing about their problems. They are left feeling discontent and an absence of self-confidence.
