Self-Esteem and Self-Actualization.

The theory of motivation

The theory of motivation
The theory of Maslow represents itself as a pyramid that explains the levels of needs.
  • The lowest and first one is physical needs such as water, food, and air. 
  • Second, come safety and security needs. 
  • Third comes the need for relationships, friendships, and love. 
  • Last, self-esteem and self-actualization.

Those who have fulfilled their needs at the lower level will try to level up and also fulfill their needs in the upper levels.

The theory of motivation

The theory of Maslow represents itself as a pyramid that explains the levels of needs.
  • The lowest and first one is physical needs such as water, food, and air. 
  • Second, come safety and security needs. 
  • Third comes the need for relationships, friendships, and love. 
  • Last, self-esteem and self-actualization.

Those who have fulfilled their needs at the lower level will try to level up and also fulfill their needs in the upper levels. 

Self-esteem

Self-esteem is the subjective evaluation of your own worth. There are two sources to fulfill this need:

  1. The need for respect from others that is obtained from recognition and admiration.
  2. The need for self-respect in the form of self-love, skill or aptitude. If you buy things because you want to prove yourself, you will fulfill your need for self-love.

    Self-actualization

    Self-actualization is the realization of one's uniquely creative, intellectual, or social potential. It is a very personal experience.

    When their need for self-esteem is fulfilled, where they have accepted themselves for the good and the bad, people move on to self-actualization.

    Self-Actualization

    It implies acknowledging and respecting the sacredness and uniqueness of each kind of person. Self-Actualization also necessitates full access to information, full knowledge of the truth, and being able to choose without fear or social pressure.

    The one thing left out of this theory is social psychology, as all the needs of a human being cannot be understood in isolation and social conditions are also necessary for personal growth.

    Self-Transcendence

    It involves advancing a cause greater and beyond the self, experiencing a drastic shift in perspective, beyond the confines of the self through the highest level of experience.

    Self-transcenders have a completely selfless value system and are leaning towards serving humanity, with an eventual goal of transcending their ego.

    The cultural shift

    • Before the 1950s, there were well-defined expectations for how people should behave. Women were supposed to be nurturing, but not too assertive. Men were supposed to be assertive but not really nurturing.
    • Around the 1960s, we rebelled as a society against the norms and preferred humanistic psychology with ideas about human potential and the possibility of living a more authentic life.

    Fulfillment of goals

    The changing nature of our expectations of marriage has made more marriages fall short and disappoint us. But the fulfillment of a new set of goals is now within reach.

    We can have a beautiful set of experiences with our spouse. We can have a particularly satisfying marriage, but we can’t do it if we’re not spending the time and the emotional energy to understand each other and help promote each other’s personal growth.

    Don't Chase Happiness

    Understandably, pain, pleasure, and loneliness can make us unhappy, and pleasures can provide us with momentary happiness.

    A certain dissatisfaction, want and frustration, is, strangely enough, providing a background towards being happy. Fulfillment of all desires, and having nothing to pursue, paradoxically makes us unhappy.

    It can be said that happiness is intended pleasure, and absence of pain, but if we are trying too hard to be happy, we cease to be so.

    You Cannot Bottle Happiness

    All of us, no matter what is our state of affairs, experience dissatisfaction, frustration and other unpleasant emotions. These emotions are as essential as one's feeling of euphoria when good things happen.

    Happiness is a journey, a never-ending quest, which cannot be simply captured, bought or sold.
