Why is it so hard to make myself do the right thing?

 

In our kids taekwondo and cubs (pre school) taekwondo classes we teach the meaning of self-control in a fun way, complete with hand motions.  I will make myself (thumbs pointing to ourselves) do the right thing.  (Finger pointing out pumping, like a mom, saying “do the right thing”)  =) But we all know kids don’t always want to do the right thing, because they would rather talk to their neighbors in class than listen to the teacher or would rather wiggle than sit still.  It’s hard to make yourself do the right thing.  But as adults doing the right thing takes on a different meaning.  We want to sit still and Facebook or read or watch TV or what ever rather than getting up and playing.  Playing takes the self-control rather than the sitting still.
