Diamond Consulting Reviews “How to Build Self-Control”
“Self-control is a quality that everyone needs. It’s something that’ll shape you into being strong, controlled, and confident individuals. Those without self-control end up in adverse situations that could’ve been prevented had they had self-control,” says Ram Dharma, managing director of Diamond Consulting. In an article on success.com, “How to Build Self-Control” the writer, John Addison talks about how leadership and prominent roles depend on an individual’s ability to have self-control. Self-control in every industry and field is crucial. Not only will it help you focus in on yourself but it will make sure you understand that you’re capable of much more if you know how to hold yourself back in certain situations and/or go fully on towards an individual situation. “In any case, self-control is something to value as a quality, and once you develop it, it’s something beneficial for a lifelong journey,” says Ram Dharma of Diamond Consulting.
Addison writes, “It takes time and effort for the bigger gear to make a full rotation. For that reason, the bigger gear needs to continue turning in the same direction. If it’s constantly changing directions, the little gears waste energy starting and stopping. Eventually, the gear teeth wear down, and the machine doesn’t move as quickly or efficiently as it once did. The same goes for leadership. It takes self-control to stay consistent in your direction and focus. If you’re shifting based on that day’s mood or an enticing short-term solution, your team will waste precious time and energy that could lead to long-term growth.” “At Diamond Consulting, we wholeheartedly agree with this concept. Eventually, things will fall into place but sometimes all a particular situation requires is your patience and consistency,” says Ram Dharma of Diamond Consulting.
Addison also states “I recently read an article about self-control in Harvard Business Review. It explained how many of us view self-control as a “gritting of the teeth” against temptation. Although self-control is a vital part of growth and development, the author wrote that we’re thinking about it the wrong way: If you’re struggling with self-control, don’t spend your energy pretending you’re not struggling. “Energy is the fuel for self-control. We each have one reservoir of energy to get things done. Each act that requires self-control progressively depletes this energy reservoir, whether it’s when you use it to resist a piece of cake, or focus single-mindedly on a difficult problem, or stay calm when you feel provoked.” When my fleeting emotions are in control, I’m stealing energy from more meaningful tasks, such as strategizing the organization’s next move or making time for an employee struggling with a difficult task. We must be careful to expend our limited energy resources on things that matter.”
