I am thinking back in my life for when I first attended management training that included a discussion on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. I believe it was in the late 1980’s. I remember being fascinated about Maslow’s “theory” that all human beings move through a growth process to achieve their five core needs:
- Basic human survival needs (i.e., physiological needs),
- Protection-stability-& health and financial security (i.e., safety needs),
- Relationships (i.e., love and belonging),
- Recognition and acknowledgment from others (i.e., esteem needs), and
- Gifts and talent development (i.e., self-actualization needs).
Maybe you can relate.… It’s only been recently that I’ve found people that live their lives from the inside out … listening for the quiet urgings of their own inner truth and wisdom. A deeply reflective way of living. One in which the authentic nature is used to design and create. Living inside out one’s internal dialogue may urge:
“I desire to learn about…” or
“I choose to do this …” or
“I’d love to…”
It’s from this place of your unique inner wisdom that a life can be designed from one’s highest values. I call this my journey to authenticity. It’s a path that I love to share with others whether in deep conversation or through personalized life coaching. Contact me if any of this resonates with you. I have heard it said that our life force energy is urging us toward our green growing edge of self-expression. Embrace your greatness, tap deeply into your inner wisdom, and design your next chapter. Reach out if I can be of any service to your growth.
