Introduction:  Hope can make individuals loyal, despite obstacles to their ambitious goals, many psychologists consider hope a factor of psychological well-being, and on the other hand, self-control affects the psychological well-being.
Objective: The amin of this study was to investigate the role of hope in predicting psychological well-being of soldiers with self-control mediation.
Material and Methods: The present study was a descriptive-correlational study. The statistical population consisted of all soldiers of the garrison of type 277 in Ghuchan during 2017-18. Using a multi-stage random sampling method, 200 soldiers with the inclusion  criteria were selected as the sample group. Data were collected using questionnaires of Miller’s Hope, Tangji self-control and psychological well-being of Riff. Descriptive statistics (frequency, mean and standard deviation) and inferential statistics (correlation coefficient and regression analysis) were analyzed using SPSS 20 (P <0.01).
Results: The results showed a positive and significant relationship between hope /self-control and psychological well-being (P <0.001). The results from regression analysis of hope prediction showed a significant relationship (β = 0.13, R2 = 0.02, F = 65.65, P = 0.01), and the results from regression analysis of self-control prediction indicated a statistically significant relationship (β = 0.56, R2 = 0.22, F = 0.65, P = 0.001).
Discussion and Conclusion: According to results, self-control and hope were two predictors of psychological well-being of soldiers. self-control is a stronger variable than hope in the prediction of psychological well-being, so it is recommended to offer courses to help them increase the level of hope and self-control and subsequently improvepsychological well-being.
