From the Inside Out

On the Proper Order of Things

Beliefs shape values.
Values shape behavior.
Behavior shapes the world.
The world impacts us.

This is no tautology. Rather it demonstrates the burden of beliefs. To be impacted by the world is not to be determined by it. After a certain stage in life, say young adulthood, everyone learns to live from the inside out. Getting this order out of order invites irresponsibility of all stripes and gives rise to misplaced blame. If you disagree, just ask the parent of any young adult!
