What is Self Actualisation?

"What human beings can be, they must be." Abraham Maslow described the process of self-actualisation as the desire to become the most that one can be. In the current age where the focus seems to be pathological mental health issues and medication, it becomes ever more important to understand self actualisation and the process of living fully. Once we understand the process of self actualisation, we may use negative emotions as a catalyst for change.
