17 Qualities of Self-Actualizing People According to Maslow

According to Abraham Maslow, known for creating Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, a theory of self-actualization, self-actualizing people share the 17 qualities of truth, goodness, beauty, wholeness, dichotomy-transcendence, aliveness, unique, perfection, necessity, completion, justice, order, simplicity, richness, effortlessness, playfulness, and self-sufficiency.

The Four Agreements by don Miquel Ruiz Continues to Resonate with Me and Beyond Motivation

The THE FOUR AGREEMENTS by don Miguel Ruiz continues to resonate with me and helps me to connect on a deeper level with BEYOND MOTIVATION.

don Miguel shows us how to work with our own energy and his approach ties in well with the fact that in BEYOND MOTIVATION James McCay delivers usable techniques for personal and group development that helps individuals and groups increase their productivity by recognizing that exchange of energy.

The Four Agreements

The Four Agreements are:

  1. Be impeccable with your word.
  2. Don’t take anything personally.
  3. Don’t make assumptions.
  4. Always do your best.

Be impeccable with your word.

Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

Don’t take anything personally.

Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

Don’t make assumptions.

Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

Always do your best.

Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are tired as opposed to well-rested. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

What Are Your Thoughts

If you have read BEYOND MOTIVATION and THE FOUR AGREEMENTS please comment and let me know how you connected, or didn’t connect, with both books and their approach to working with our energy and the energy of others.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
