The Step-By-Step Guide To Bringing Your Enormous Potential To Life

maslow

We are all a bunch of geniuses.

We all have enormous potential to do incredible things.

Some people live their dreams and some sort of idle or get stuck along the way and some have no idea where to begin and can’t even approach the enormity of the task.

I’ve been all three people at one point of another.

Now I just think about climbing the pyramid above.  And you will too!

Today, let’s talk about becoming your highest and most amazing you.  Right now.  You may have gotten stuck, you may feel like your backsliding, you might not know wat to do next…

The good news is that there’s an actual series of steps to live your dreams.  It’s the coolest science. It’s the most sane and basic principles.  It can light your life up with clarity.  It’s self-actualization.  

What does it mean to reach the state of self-actualization?

This term was coined by Abraham Maslow when he discovered that people can become their highest self by means of motivators. He developed a model of necessities that we’re all motivated by in order to exist.

Self Actualized people:

Maslow turned the data of his studies of these self-actualized people into a pyramid. Our most basic needs such as food, water, air, sexual intimacy and shelter are at the very bottom, and our highest needs such as realizing our personal potential and actually seeking to manifest that potential into a reality are at the very top.

The trick to Maslow’s theory, is that if you can not fulfill the most basic of needs, you can not move on to the next level, and therefore cannot ultimately become your highest self.  You have to fulfill each level of the pyramid to move to the next level.

Maslow’s Five-Stage Model:

  1. Biological and Physiological needs – air, food, drink, shelter, warmth, sex, sleep, etc.
  2. Safety needs – protection from elements, security, order, law, limits, stability, etc.
  3. Belongingness and Love needs – work group, family, affection, relationships, etc.
  4. Esteem needs – self-esteem, achievement, mastery, independence, status, dominance, prestige, managerial responsibility, etc.
  5. Self-Actualization needs – realizing personal potential, self-fulfillment, seeking personal growth and peak experiences.

 

Although Maslow’s model,of self-actualization is logical and concise, there can be many bumps along the way.  Life carries with it many surprises that can easily disrupt our stability. People lose their jobs, some get divorced, lose their loved ones… and this can mean getting stuck on a level or vacillating between levels. In order to achieve complete self-actualization, all previous levels need to attained and be stable.   The pyramid shows us clearly: always go back to basics when in doubt, crisis, confusion, or otherwise want to move higher in life. 

Eat well, sleep, love, breathe… Take care of your body.  Move around….

Take care of your home, too!

Clutter, mess, disorder and stagnation disrupt the feeling of safety and security and thriving that lives at the bottom of the pyramid.   When you clean up, you make the space to thrive and thrive in a very solid, very stable way!

Here’s to creating solid foundations to build the kind of empires that are rock-solid!
