Self-control refers to the ability to regulate and manage one's own thoughts, emotions, impulses, and behaviors. Self-control is essential for achieving personal and academic success, maintaining healthy relationships, and navigating various life challenges. Cultivating self-control can contribute to better decision-making, improved emotional well-being, and overall self-development. This study investigates the intricate constructs of self-control among higher education students in Malaysia. A focus group discussion was conducted to investigate lecturers’ perception on the constructs of self-control that are essential to predict better academic performance among higher education students. There are 25 university lecturers participated in this study which includes from various types of education field and types of universities all over Malaysia. Through rigorous focus group discussions, four pivotal themes emerged—motivation, concentration, self-awareness, and emotion regulation. The findings illuminate the nuanced interplay of these elements in shaping students' self-control, offering valuable implications for educators, policymakers, and stakeholders in enhancing academic and personal development in the Malaysian higher education context.
