24 Self-Mastery

This car is a Maserati GranCabrio. To buy one new costs over £98,000 (as much as a house!) It has a top speed of 175 miles per hour or 171 miles per hour with the roof down and does 0-60mph in 5.4 seconds! In a couple of weeks I will have the chance to take one of these cars out on the road for a drive.

Would you like to go for a spin in a car like this?

BUT...

What if it had no brakes? Would you still like to go for a ride in it?

Self mastery is like the brakes on a car - we need it in order to control the power within us!

This video is used in this week's lesson. As you watch, think about the consequences of the choices the man has. What will happen if he does this or that?
