By Malka Fisher Sara wanted to go on a diet to lose weight. She decided to only eat 1 junk food a day. On the 1st day she succeeded and only ate 1 junk food. However, on the 2nd day she couldn’t control herself and ate 3. Eventually her entire diet fell apart. When you set a goal for yourself that requires a lot of self control, never set the goal too high. Do it little by little and, eventually, you’ll get control over your life and you won’t be a slave to your desires.
