Learn about the psychology of unlocking your highest potential.
“What a man can be, he must be. This need we may call self-actualisation” – Abraham Maslow, 1943
In 1943, Abraham Maslow put forward his theory of Self Actualisation.
In a nutshell, Maslow’s theory suggests that when human beings’ most basic needs are met, we have an innate tendency towards growth.
In the same way that it is in the nature of plants to grow towards sunlight or for an acorn to become an oak tree, it is in the nature of human beings to grow towards our highest potential.
Carl Rogers referred to this as the ‘Actualising Tendency’.
Yet, often our attempts toward self actualisation are ineffective. We read all of the books, attend the seminars, and follow the latest ‘gurus’; only to find that things remain the same as before we started.
And this can very easily lead to feelings of frustration and the sense of being ‘stuck’.
But what if this May, you took a different approach?
What if you took the latest evidence-based approaches from the psychology of self actualisation, and applied them in your own life? Might you get different results?
