No need to change...
Abraham Maslow is best know for creating Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. I remember first studying Maslow in my Business 101 class during my freshman year in college. I was enamored with his positive views of people opposing traditional psychological views.
"What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself, " Maslow has been quoted as saying. It's true. We need to change our awareness of ourselves to be our best Self. How do I see myself? The answer to this question is very important. The way we see ourselves shows through to others. More importantly, we act, think, speak and live according to this view of ourselves. This is not about pumping ourselves up psychologically, but about recognizing our true nature which is that we were created with purpose, divine in nature and gifted with abilities and talents.
I believe that rather than struggle to be better, the idea here is to let go, release, simplify and just be. There is a wonderful being within that is hidden behind complicated views. Aware of who we are, we being to act more confidently with no thoughts of doubt, limitation or lack. A shift in self-awareness brings to light our best Self. There's really no need to change ourselves, just the way we see ourselves.
Our thoughts of ourselves and the world we live in shape our days, our decisions, what we attract into our lives and the energy around us. Today is a good day to change the way you see yourself. Take a new look at what's been there all along. With this new awareness of yourself, life will be more exciting, inspiring, loving, honest, prosperous, beautiful, harmonious and enjoyable because this is what you are.
