The only real control in life is self-control.
Read context here.
Omgosh, soooooo true! No matter what it is, the power lies within us, but we have to have the courage to exercise self-control. People who do this don’t make excuses for themselves, but instead take full responsibilities for their lives, including any mistakes they may make. Know what else people with self-control can take responsibility for? Their successes. Self-control enables you to have success in (almost!) any and all areas that you could desire. That’s the power of it. Pretty awesome, I’d say.
Elder Holland pretty much hit the nail on the head with that quote, huh? Oh, and even if you think Mormonism is weird/crazy, you should know that Jeffrey Holland has his PhD. from Yale, so it’s 99% guaranteed that he’s smarter than you.
No offense (he’s waaaay smarter than me!)

Is there something concerning which YOU need to exercise better self-control? (ex: sleep, internet use, what you eat, exercise, personal habits, moral cleanliness, finances, etc.) How can you make sure you ARE in control?
