“If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.”
~ Joseph Campbell


Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.

Musicians must make music, artists must paint, poets must write if they are to be ultimately at peace with themselves. What human beings can be, they must be. They must be true to their own nature. This need we may call self-actualization.
~ Abraham Maslow


Many people dedicate their lives to actualizing a concept of what they should be like, rather than actualizing themselves. This difference between self-actualization and self-image actualization is very important. Most people live only for their image
~ Bruce Lee


Finding happiness is like finding yourself. You don't find happiness, you make happiness. You choose happiness. Self-actualization is a process of discovering who you are, who you want to be and paving the way to happiness by doing what brings you the most meaning and contentment to your life over the long run.
~ David Leonhardt


“Know your own happiness. You want nothing but patience- or give it a more fascinating name, call it hope.”

~ Abraham Maslow


Housework is work directly opposed to the possibility of human self-actualization.
~ Ann Oakley


It looks as if there were a single ultimate goal for mankind, a far goal toward which all persons strive. This is called variously by different authors self-actualization, self-realization, integration, psychological health, individuation, autonomy, creativity, productivity, but they all agree that this amounts to realizing the potentialities of the person, that is to say, becoming fully human, everything that person can be.
~ Abraham Maslow


It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.
~ Nelson Mandela


There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.
~ Nelson Mandela


We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?
~ Nelson Mandela


I was not a messiah, but an ordinary man who had become a leader because of extraordinary circumstances.
~ Nelson Mandela


Live life as though nobody is watching, and express yourself as though everyone is listening.

~ Bruce Lee


Intimacy requires courage because risk is inescapable. We cannot know at the outset how the relationship will affect us.
~ Rollo May


I was awfully curious to find out why I didn't go insane.
~ Abraham Maslow


Intimacy requires courage because risk is inescapable. We cannot know at the outset how the relationship will affect us. Like a chemical mixture, if one of us is changed, both of us will be. Will we grow in self-actualization, or will it destroy us? The one thing we can be certain of is that if we let ourselves fully into the relationship for good or evil, we will not come out unaffected.
~ Rollo May


Let there be justice for all. Let there be peace for all. Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all. Let each know that for each the body, the mind and the soul have been freed to fulfill themselves.
~ Nelson Mandela


To be happy we must not be too concerned with others.
~ Albert Camus


It was psychobabbler Abraham Maslow who wrote of the phenomena of self-actualization. What Maslow failed to grasp is that reaching true self-actualization can only be ultimately achieved when you have your own brand of ammunition.
~ Ted Nugent


To achieve self actualization, do good things for other people that you would want to be done onto yourself
~ Meg Cabot


The person in peak-experiences feels himself, more than other times, to be the responsible, active, creating center of his activities and of his perceptions. He feels more like a prime-mover, more self-determined (rather than caused, determined, helpless, dependent, passive, weak, bossed). He feels himself to be his own boss, fully responsible, fully volitional, with more "free-will" than at other times, master of his fate, an agent.
~ Abraham Maslow


The more one forgets imself - by giving himself to a cause to serve or another person to love - the more human he is and the more he actualizes himself.
~ Viktor E. Frankl


Your playing small does not serve the world. Who are you not to be great?
~ Marianne Williamson


...being human always points, and is directed, to something, or someone, other than oneself—be it meaning to fulfill or another human being to encounter. The more one forgets himself—by giving himself to a cause to serve or another person to love—the more human he is and the more he actualizes himself.... What is called self-actualization is not an attainable aim at all, for the simple reason that the more one would strive for it, the more he would miss it. In other words, self-actualization is possible only as a side-effect of self-transcendence.
~ Viktor E. Frankl


It is not where you start but how high you aim that matters for success.
~ Nelson Mandela


Do your own thing on your own terms and get what you came here for
~ Oliver James


What a man can be, he must be. This need we call self-actualizat ion.
~ Abraham Maslow


When people appear to be something other than good and decent, it is only because they are reacting to stress, pain, or the deprivation of basic human needs such as security, love, and self-esteem.

(Some people) have a wonderful capacity to appreciate again and again, freshly and naively, the basic goods of life, with awe, pleasure, wonder, and even ecstasy.

A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself.
~ Abraham Maslow


Intimacy requires courage because risk is inescapable.
~ Rollo May


No matter who you are, no matter what you did, no matter where you've come from, you can always change, become a better version of yourself.
~ Madonna Ciccone


If you follow your bliss...the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living.

Follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and door will open where you didn't know they were going to be.
~ Joseph Campbell


You don't find happiness, you make happiness.
~ David Leonhardt


I have retired, but if there's anything that would kill me it is to wake up in the morning not knowing what to do.
~ Nelson Mandela


Self-actualization is what educated existence is all about. For members of the educated class, life is one long graduate school. When they die, God meets them at the gates of heaven, totes up how many fields of self-expression they have mastered, and then hands them a divine diploma and lets them in.
~ David Brooks


My mom says you only need three people you can rely on to achieve self-actualization.
~ Cassandra Clare

Concepts vs. self-actualization. - Instead of dedicating your life to actualize a concept of what you should be like, ACTUALIZE YOURSELF. The process of maturing does not mean to become a captive of conceptualization. It is to come to the realization of what lies in our innermost selves.
