Resisting Impulses: A Crucial Skill For Everyone!


“There is perhaps no psychological skill more fundamental than resisting impulse. It is the root of all emotional self-control, since all emotions, by their very nature, lead to one or another impulse to act. The root meaning of the word emotion, remember, is “to move.”

–Daniel Goleman (American Psychologist, Journalist, Author and Consultant, 1946-)
