Poor Decisions – a Key Enemy to Human Happiness

All the actions we take and the results that we generate are a direct result of the following chain of behavior:


Unhappiness comes from poor decisions in each of the steps from Stimulus to Response. Unhappiness is engendered by poor habits of thought and behavior and the unconscious choices we make from moment to moment in the chain from stimulus to response, from desire to the eventual results we generate in our world.
By learning how to take control of the steps of this chain, and installing new responses, you can learn to master your emotional responses and build the skills of happiness.
