Whatever we call it, it’s powerful.
Eric Maisel, PhD writes in a sample from his Meaning Solution Program:
“Self-actualization is a lovely word that stands for our desire to make the most of our talents.
“Instead of using only a small portion of your total being, just enough to get by, you make the conscious decision to employ your full intelligence, your emotional capital, and your best personality qualities in the service of growth and good works.
“We know that we’d love to make use of our potential and make ourselves proud. Self-actualization is the way you become your real self and your best self.
“You will do yourself a great service if you treat self-actualization as one of your most important meaning opportunities.”

It isn’t only our best personality qualities that can help us actualize. Using all our resources, even those we may discount as less than noble, might bring even more energy to our growth and creative expression.
