There are many things’ people do, or attempt doing, to try changing their lives. Some people grind themselves to the bone while others take classes on how to improve their lives. The real question is what drives us to be better, to become the ultimate versions of ourselves?
Abraham Maslow spun his theories about human nature and needs in a positive direction. His theory was defined in 1943, though some aspects have not been entirely proven. Each step in his theory must be completed before someone can move on to the next, higher, level.
In some cases, it’s been shown that the levels don’t necessarily have to be reached in order to get to the next level. However, in the majority of samples examined, there is a strong basis for Maslow’s theory and it’s still widely accepted, taught and understood.
