The crave for self-actualization is naturally ingrained in human beings. Every individual is branded by a distinctive thought-pattern and behavior-pattern, corroborated by his or her personal definition of life and success. Normally, people tend to designate their goals and ambitions – academic and professional, short-term and long-term – with respect to their talent, personality, and environment/background. Success is defined as the achievement of goal(s). Upon accomplishing certain goals, people devise new aims and commence their journey afresh.
Likening human struggle to a ladder, each step can be perceived as a destination or success. The propensity for progressing and moving forward, destination after destination, is inborn in human nature. That being so, we may regard an achievement or success not as an end point, rather a journey in itself, leading towards a chain of aspiring achievements. The true or ultimate achievement is reaching the station of self-actualization/self-realization throughout the lifespan.
