Self / Internal Control
No! Nooo!! That is disastrous !!!
Any car travelling on the highway without a steering to control its direction and brakes to control its speed, is a disaster about to happen.

  Also, every individual travels on the highway of life must embrace self control at ensuring the success of the journey.
Effective 'Internal / Self Control'  is essential for attainment of personal aspirations,  goals and life desires.

 'Internal / Self Control for an individual implies 'self police', 'self governance', 'self management', 'self supervision' and 'self regulation'.

Essentially, every individual needs to control his or her thought, words, actions, habits, attitudes, appetite, taste and body.
 Effective self control is essential for a glorious,  enviable, successful, amiable and fulfilled life.

 God will help us in this regard.

Be yourself always.
Beware and Caution !!!

 Unnecessary 'Public Impression' something results in Unwarranted & Avoidable 'Private Depression'.

Also, Over Concentration on 'Public Image' can result in 'Personal Damage'.
Be your real self and live your real size per time.

Public Impression and Public Image are not sustainable as what impresses people today may not impress them tomorrow.

Just be yourself always.

 See you at the top.

Virus called 'Unforgiveness'
It is a known fact that virus,  either in computer, phone or human body, is deadly.  As the case with EBOLA and HIV, Virus is only out to destroy. Unforgiveness in Human life is a form of unsuspected, innocent but deadly virus. Unforgiveness leads to bitterness, hatred, Anger, strife ETC. The simple vaccine against this kind of virus is genuine LOVE and TOLERANCE.
