On sweets

What is impressive about someone indulging in dessert? Who, faced with sweets, wouldn’t eat them? Anyone has the power to listen to their compulsion to eat more, but few can ignore it. That is the power you should aim to have. It applies to all sorts of indulgence, too. Is it hard to refuse to lose your temper? Yes, challenge yourself to do so, because it will set you apart from the rest who have no thought of keeping themselves under control. Is it hard to not indulge in gossip and be distracted by today’s fleeting news? It must be, considering the people around you can’t take their eyes and ears off it. Again, challenge yourself to control your impulses. It’s difficult, but don’t eat the sweets.
