3. Love Needs: Humans have a desire to belong to groups such as clubs, work groups, religious groups, families, or gangs. We need to feel non-sexual love by others and to be accepted by others---we need to be needed.

4. Esteem Needs: There isrepparttar self-esteem that results from competence or mastery of a task andrepparttar 126275 self-esteem fromrepparttar 126276 attention and recognition that comes from others. This is similar torepparttar 126277 belongingness level; however,repparttar 126278 desire for admiration has to do withrepparttar 126279 need for power.

5. Self-Actualization: Self-actualization isrepparttar 126280 desire to ultimately become everything that you are capable of becoming. When you reach this point, you literally have everything. Once everything is secure and satisfying, you can then begin to seek knowledge, peace, aesthetic experiences, and self-fulfillment. This isrepparttar 126281 point at which you can achieve your personal goals and go after your vision.

--- Satisfying your needs. ---

Before you can chase your desires, achieving self-actualization, you must first satisfyrepparttar 126282 basic needs. But, to satisfy your basic needs, you must evaluate your position inrepparttar 126283 list of basic needs and determine how to satisfy them. Satisfying your needs can be anything from physical relocation to finding a new job or changing mates.

Satisfying your needs can occur in many different ways. Sometimes you're forced into it and, other times, you simply resolve them under your own control. It takes some evaluation of your current situation to accept and realize how to resolve these basic needs to move up in your levels of life. In my experiences, all of my basic needs were constantly shaken. Betweenrepparttar 126284 death of my parents torepparttar 126285 destruction of my home by fire, I continued to find ways to resolverepparttar 126286 problems that plagued my security and safety. Once I was able to become strong enough to overcome and achieve, only then was I able to feelrepparttar 126287 satisfaction that my basic needs were met.

--- What's next? ---

The reason so many people are stuck in one place in their life has to do withrepparttar 126288 fact that they have not satisfiedrepparttar 126289 basic requirements ofrepparttar 126290 hierarchy of needs. People who are in bad jobs, making barely enough money to make ends meet, are unable to move intorepparttar 126291 next level of love or self-esteem. They are stuck because they have not made it to a level that they can pursue their own desires.

Call it "rights of passage" or simply "getting out ofrepparttar 126292 muck." Whatever you call it, you must be able to determine how to satisfy your most basic needs before you can ever reach a level to pursue your own, personal desires. Once you have satisfiedrepparttar 126293 basic levels of existence and risen torepparttar 126294 top ofrepparttar 126295 ladder, you are able to move out into other areas of life that are important to you.

It is important to be able to satisfy your "needs" before you can acquire your "wants." Don't give up as there is a way to dig out and get torepparttar 126296 top. You just have to evaluate your situation, make a plan, and determine how to make it happen for yourself.
