Power. People really get caught with this on different levels
Power controls your life

from A Tribe Called Quest (Ft. Consequence) – Word Play Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Some people don’t know how to control their power, and in the end it controls them.

Ex:

Abraham Lincoln is quoted on saying, “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”
