Webster's dictionary defines behavior as, "The manner in which one behaves, or the manner of conducting oneself."
The behavior of an adolescent is a key factor in the overall productivity, or lack thereof, of a teen’s lifestyle. If a teen chooses to act on fruitful, self-promoting behaviors, they are likely to develop into a successful, fully-functional, young adult. Contrariwise, teens who act on negative, self-indulgent behaviors, are likely to live an unproductive, chaotic lifestyle, and therefore, less apt in developing characteristics needed in meeting their personal potential.
The behavior in which one chooses to conduct themselves, is the single-most important factor in living a successful, happy lifestyle. Consequently, those who fail to realize the importance of behaving in a productive manner, will live a life of poor stature, and ultimately, a life of regret.
