Self control a person’s ability to manage their emotions, impulses and behaviors, so that he/she can focus on their long-term goals instead of giving in to momentary temptations that they regret later.

So self control acts like the executive mechanism essential for the fulfillment of individual goals. It is a cognitive mechanism, mainly rooted in the prefrontal cortex, which is larger for humans than other animals and filled with nerve connections. It is the seat for planning, evaluating options, and making decisions. This sophisticated executive process helps human beings to suppress impulsive reactions by favouring a more acceptable form of context-specific behavior.

Self control is a valuable trait to cultivate- especially for those who think that their dreams and goals are slipping away. A person who lacks self-control can react in a number of impulsive ways; including frustration, physical aggression, or turning to unhealthful coping mechanisms
