Self actualization is something that not many people achieve. Perhaps the difficulty with achieving self actualization is the fact that most people have a difficult time achieving self esteem. In the society we live in today we are constantly told we are not good enough which makes having self esteem difficult. If we can not reach this level then reaching self actualization which comes after self esteem is impossible. People who are totally self actualized are usually people we would admire because they are steadfast in their beliefs and know what they want out of life and where they want to go. Someone I think is self actualized is my Aunt. She knows her life, she understands where she wants to be and go. She believes in herself which means she has realized her self esteem and self worth. I hope that one day I will be self actualized and know what I want to do with my life.
