When asked to consider their personal heroes, many people list inspirational figures who overcame tremendous odds to achieve success. We place these people on pedestals because they share a common human strength: self control. Learn how self-control relies on a limited energy resource that becomes depleted after prior use and the interplay between self-control and personality, biological, and social processes. Receive useful activities to reconsider factors that contribute to their academic, personal, and relationship success.
