Self-Control    Character Trait for April

Being able to manage your words, actions and emotions properly, by your own initiative, and without supervision, is a way to display self-control.

Greek philosopher, Plato, once said: “The first and best victory is to conquer self.”

Spartans can practice self-control by:

  • Winning and losing with dignity and pride;
  • Congratulating classmates when they are successful;
  • Learning from their mistakes and moving on;
  • Being patient with themselves;
  • And by finding the positives in life.

According to Aristotle, “We are what we repeatedly do, excellence then is not an act, but a habit.”
