The connection between a life's work and well-being

The path that you choose determines the way that you reach your destination. This is why the way you respond to different situations will bring about a certain outcome, and effect how you will view the world. A mindset is gained through habits. The consecutive steps which will take on a pattern is assessable through a set of circumstances.

This can be compared to walking up a staircase and being aware that you are able to walk up a different staircase – the process is the same, but each circumstance has a different arrangement. We as human being use what we learn in the ways we decide.

Individual choice

As people, we go through a process of weighing options. When deciding on what to adjust we do it according to our preferences. Then we make up our minds on what we are willing to tolerate within the measurements of our endurance. This includes what we choose to discard and when we decide to let go of an issue in order to move on.

Pattern of behavior

A learned behavior is something a person becomes familiar with. People make personal decisions to allow certain actions to become acceptable. Repeating a pattern of behavior conforms to a shape of standard. What is gathered from previous situations is often used in current situations because of the scope of what we know. As we continue to learn more possibilities become available. Paths then begin to open up more options providing opportunities in the expansion. Being able to make informed decisions you gain the ability to select a suitable path that feels right, and one possible to achieve.

The positive outlook

Certainty develops when secure steps confirms a choice that you have made. This is supported by evidence of information that you've become aware of.
