A Positive Valence of Role-sustainment in the Relationship between Active-life and Successful-life
Keywords:life engagement, health condition, success, needs, environmental supplies
Actualization of the developmental needs into practice of the behaviors enacted during the daily living is desirable for human beings from all over the world. In this study, we focus the examination on the conditions that may significantly contribute to this desiderate. Precisely, we construct the hypotheses model according to which role-sustainment, more than leisure-ethics, has a positive mediator role in the relationship between active-life, a composite-variable of socio-demographic indicators and successful-life, a back-translated, scalar measure. The multi-cultural, convenient sample had 261 participants, aged between 18 to 78 years old, having an almost symmetrical distribution of gender. The values of the paths obtained from structural equations proved full support of the hypotheses. Furthermore, the properties of this model had a satisfactory fit into the data (AGFI = .99; CMIN = .26, p =.61, RMSEA = .000). We consider that these results are important for the social organization struggling for the maintenance of well-being of young and elder populations.
