The Need is Real! Self-Actualization at its Best

Your desire to be your best, to realize your dreams, to be successful, happy, and fulfilled- it’s NOT just a luxury, or a “want.”

Rather, that desire, that yearning to be all that you can be, to fulfill your potential, and to live your best, most joyous, meaningful, and fulfilling life, it’s a real, actual, universal, basic human NEED!!!!   

In wellness terms (including your soul’s wellness, in addition to your psychological, emotional, and physical wellness), a “need” is defined as something that if goes unmet, creates a pathology (meaning a disease or sickness, as in the opposite of wellness) or a pathological problem.

The most concrete example is your need for food. If that need goes unmet, it creates a pathological problem in your body.

Our need for love is the same, though not as obvious in a tangible way. If your need for love goes unmet, it creates a pathological problem (meaning, a lack of wellness) in your life.

(And by the way, that’s as true for doing what you love and being who you love – which is essentially giving yourself love – as it is for receiving love from others! They’re both equally vital to your wellness!!!. Because LOVE is everything! And everything starts with YOU! But I digress…..)   

So too is it with your need to self-actualize!!!  Your hunger, drive, and desire to achieve and attain success, happiness, meaning, purpose, fulfillment, to be your best, to fulfill your potential, and to realize your dreams – that’s something to embrace, nourish, cultivate, develop, and maximize – NOT from a place of ego-driven entitlement or selfish want, but from a place of soul wellness and real, basic, human need!!!

And I think it’s important to remember that. To remember and be reminded that your need for self-actualization is a beautiful and pure essential part of YOU, your being, and your wellness!

It’s not something to shove away, bury, minimize, or be ashamed of in any way whatsoever (which I think is something we all tend to do sometimes – we think, who am I to want such grand dreams, or who am I to think I can achieve such success, or whatever form of beating yourself up you tend to go to).

You NEED to Self-Actualize – to strive to become your best, realize your dreams, grow, evolve, and live your best life possible with meaning, purpose, passion and fulfillment – just as you need food, and just as you need love. :-)))   

As always, Do More of What You Love and Be More of Who You Love!

Seize Your Passion!!!!

Every email that I get from Sepoya is so inspiring. I am currently training to become an actor, and your words keep me moving, knowing that anything is possible.
