Thoughtful Possibility, Emotional Hope, Behavioral Direction, & Environmental Success

Aug 17, 2007
What defines human life? Does thought, emotion, behavior, or environment define human life? Perhaps all of these factors? Are any of these factors related to success? If so, how?

Thoughts, Emotions, Behavior, & Environment

According to physics, a light beam consists of particles (photons) and waves. If you observe a light beam in a certain way, it appears to consist of particles. If observed in another way, it appears to consist of waves. Which observation is correct? They both are. Similarly, a human life consists of thoughts, emotions, behavior, and environment. Your specific observation of a human life yields thoughts by what is said, emotions by facial expression, behavior by activities, or environment by surroundings. Your focus determines your observation - and any one of your observations is correct.

Thoughts: By what is said, a person reveals his thoughts. His thoughts may be positive or negative, moral or immoral, rational or irrational, etc. If you completely understand a person's thoughts, then you completely understand the person.

Emotions: By facial expression, body posture, and voice tone, a person reveals his emotions. His emotions may be sad or happy, fearful or confident, angry or calm, etc. If you completely understand a person's emotions, then you completely understand the person.

Behavior: By activities, a person reveals his behavior. His behavior may be hardworking or lazy, sociable or isolating, safe or risky, etc. If you completely understand a person's behavior, then you completely understand the person.

Environment: By work and home surroundings, a person reveals his environment. His environment may be luxurious or slummy, ordered or chaotic, quiet or noisy, etc. If you completely understand a person's environment, then you completely understand the person.

How can observing thoughts, emotions, behavior, or environment yield enough information to completely understand a person? Our light beam example answers this question. Not only does a light beam consists of particles and waves - but the particles and waves are one and the same. Not only does a human life consists of thoughts, emotions, behavior, and environment - but the thoughts, emotions, behavior, and environment are one and the same.

Thoughts express as emotions, expressing as behavior, expressing as environment. For example, thinking positively expresses as feeling confidently, expressing as behaving motivationally, expressing as living luxuriously.

Possibility, Hope, Direction, & Success

The Anchor and Ark, a Masonic symbol, means having a well-grounded hope and a well-spent life.

A well-grounded hope is assuring yourself of a possibility; a well-spent life is a successful life. To have a successful life, you must assure yourself of this possibility. Assuring yourself of possibly having a successful life moves you in this direction. Just as gasoline is car fuel, hope is behavioral fuel. The stronger the hope, the stronger the fuel. Stronger behavioral fuel leads to faster success.

No matter how dark your present circumstance is - hope, the behavioral fuel, gets you through it. However, if you run out of behavioral fuel, you emotionally depress, behaviorally quitting. So you must regularly fill yourself up with hope. Filling up at the hope station, choose premium instead of regular.


Generally, we see that thought, emotion, behavior, or environment defines human life. And not only do these factors define human life, but they relate to each other - in fact they are one and the same. More specifically, we see that thoughtful possibility, emotional hope, behavioral direction, or environmental success defines human success - that these factors relate to each other - that they are one and the same!
