What is the quickest way to rise in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs levels in life?

13 posts in this topic

Hi I am 22 years old from India. And I am  just starting to earn money and commit to a career. No romantic relationships yet. No physical possessions. 
How do I grow through the Maslow’s hierarchy of needs in the fastest way possible ?

I am asking this because I see wise people in this forum writing and I am unable to understand anything. 
 

If I could grow through the hierarchy,maybe I could understand they and Leo’s wisdom.

Study intuition. That is the answer.


The same strength, the same level of desire it takes to change your life, is the same strength, the same level of desire it takes to end your life. Notice you are headed towards one or the other. - Razard86

Consciously pursue your needs and desires until you are no longer very attached to outcomes. Doesn't mean you don't care when you reach that point, but internally you can reach a point of letting everything go for "yourself". ;) 


Truth is love. Truth is beauty. Every frame is a painting. ❣ Nothing but love.

80% action , 20% theory 

Use a journal and track your progress... You will see patterns quickly across 4 short entries 

 

Look for mentor at the level above you.

Accountability - tell your friend $20 for each day you fail

 

Might search out barriers to next levels , sticking points common to your level.

 

Challenge yourself and have fun! Aka Flow States 

 

S.M.A.R.T daily goal setting

 

Practice teaching it, when you can teach it like to a 5 yr old, u really got it.

 

And definitely shift your self-image to see yourself as the person you mean to be

100% commitment , not 99%

 

Pump your emotional state 10/10 , like jump around cheering like your team won the tournament and your dream girl said yes to marrying and get that dopamine jacked up to max, peak emotional state  (emotion = motion) 

Go to sleep and remember your day as if everything you wished for had come true , like instead of imagining your perfect day,  remember it as if you experienced it earlier in the day

 

 

Various techniques , don't overload yourself, (general rule of thumb is 2 habits per 30 days or so)

I don't understand that. Are there books dedicated to studying intuition?

Thanks @puporing . I will keep that in mind.

All of the above.

Also focus on process, not on speed.

Very interesting. I am bad at focusing on the process. I have to learn to do it better.

I journal almost everyday but never read them back for introspection. I also suck at SMART goal setting. I love the pumping your emotional state part but it will be super uncomfortable. Negative thinking always stops me from working on my self image. Thanks @KoryKat !

Raise your consciousness by studying LOC by Dawkins. Don't waste your time with effects but rather go to the causes of things.

@StarStruck What is LOC? And what's the full name of its author Dawkins?

I love this! I was gonna say plunge headlong into debauchery and either die or emerge free. Please understand that I am saying this somewhat as a joke, but it really was my path. Not to say that I am completely liberated, but it was the road that got me where I am (which is much more healthy and adjusted than I started).

Focus on one area at a time.

It sounds like you have your psysiological & safety needs met (the first two levels of the pyramid).

Now focus on the third level, belongingness & love needs. This means you should focus on your relationships.

That could be your relationship with your parents, friend group and intimate partner. Sounds like getting into dating would be a good place for you to start.

After a couple years of focusing on your relationships, then you move to the next level on the hierarchy which is esteem needs.

You want to make sure you feel a sense of higher purpose & that your career is deeply fulfilling. You feel good about who you are and are grounded in authenticity.

Then you move to self actualization which is taking all the lower levels and getting them into a harmonic balance where you’re operating at your highest capacity.

But for now, sounds like your next step is focusing on relationships. 


The game of survival cannot be won.
