SimchaMinute by Rabbi Avigdor Miller
By doing mitzvos we become better. In general when a person doesn’t yield to his inclinations, to his passions, to his yetzer hara, but his seichel, his reason overcomes everything and he does only according to the command of Hashem, it’s a great perfection.
When you gain control over your character and over your desires, then you’re a superior personality. — The Axis of the Torah (#839)
