The Way of Personal Development

Ian Parkin is the verified author of this post.

I've created the Way of Personal Development by bringing together the far-reaching psychology of Abraham H Maslow (1908 – 1970) and the timeless spirituality of Lao-Tzu’s (600 BC) ‘Tao Te Ching’.

I have created a master personal development plan that is simple to follow and magnanimous in its results.

Abraham Maslow pointed out that “only a few of us reach Self Actualization (being your true self – fully human). This is because so many people get stuck in striving for their lower needs and never get to realize their exalted realms of purpose and meaning”.

The Way of Personal Development

I feel as if the game of life has been rather like playing a subconscious game of Snakes and Ladders (Chutes and Ladders for my American friends) within Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. It seems to me that too many climb and fall in the three lower levels of the hierarchy. Those between basic physiological survival, foundational safety in health, work, finances and family matters, and the mid-level striving for love and belongingness.

The Way of Personal Development helps us play the game of life in a new way – one where we climb the ladders in the hierarchy of needs without chuting down the snakes.

Maslow was right in identifying that not enough of us rise up to feel self-confidence, worth, and strength. Or find the capability and adequacy of being useful and necessary in the world. Very few aspire to find the ultimate happiness of self-actualization. Even less go beyond our ordinary human level of consciousness and experience oneness with the greater whole, the higher truth in self-transcendence, whatever that may be to each of us individually. For me the ultimate goal in personal development.

The thing to do seems to be to find out what you are really like inside, deep down, as a member of the human species and as a particular individual. - A. Maslow

In my opinion the ancient wisdom of the Tao-Te-Ching (Book of the Way and Virtue) has long taught, what Maslow called, the Being Values or Metaneeds and his Self-Actualizing characteristics.

By self-assessing against the Maslow Hierarchy of Needs and adopting Maslow’s Self-Actualizing characteristics I have devised my Personal Development blueprint to guide others, across the stepping stones of destiny, towards realizing lives of purpose and meaning too.
