STEP #4: The Self-Actualization Secret

Do you ever get tired of everyone talking about self-improvement?   Self-actualization and self-improvement are quite different.  The most significant difference is that self-improvement focuses on growing yourself and improving knowledge or status by way of one’s efforts.  Self-actualization focuses on specific areas to achieve your most excellent you.  It is a process that involves relationships that help you define and become aware of areas of untapped potential.  We all have a desire to become the most that we can be.  It does not matter whether you are already a business owner, or your goal is to become one. The self-actualization process is necessary if you wish to succeed. Years of slow growth and non-productivity can be swept away during the process.  Success will come much sooner.  Self-actualization is not a goal; it is a journey; a desire.  On your way there, you will begin to see yourself quite differently.  You will uncover obstacles that are getting in your way.  There are a few of the steps to be mastered along the way. 

#1. Understanding your core strengths and what drives you

#2. Learning the process of operating within the lanes of your strength 

#3. Re-engineering your unique vision model 

#4. Understanding time-value

#5. Charting your course by use of waypoints and timelines

#6. Staying on course (your unique path)

Understanding what is happening in this fast pace world, it is essential to know why so many business owners and entrepreneurs have drifted in a dangerous direction.  Today’s world consists of a time when the word “ghosting” has become a part of everyday language.  Why?  Because people are throwing out too big of a net, and they are only catching the small fish.  They say, “sorry, I have been so busy.”  Come on; everyone is busy!  Personally, I want to do business with successful people. However, you do not have to be busy to be successful.  Think about it.  If you are feeding your family, what would be easier and more efficient, to catch and clean twenty bream or to catch a five-pound bass?  Think about the time you would have to spend with your family if you focused on finding the big fish.  


I have spent a lifetime as a business owner, and one thing is for sure, I do not have it all figured out.  What I can tell you is that my journey will never end, and I am enjoying every minute of it.  I began early at the age of twenty-five.  I read numerous self-help books.  Over the last forty years, I spent many weeks and days in seminars.  Every chance I had I poured into self-improvement.  However, it was not until the last few years that I ultimately began the process of self-actualization.  The method of self-actualization is not accomplished on your own.  For the process to work you must spend time with other business owners and entrepreneurs that push you to the pinnacle of success.  If your wish is to be the best that you can be you must associate with people having the same vision.  Modeling other business owners will take years of struggling off your career.


I went through this process, and over the course of three years, I learned to transform my business by changing the way I think.  It is ONLY through this process that you can move up the top level in Maslow’s pyramid.  It is ONLY through this process that you can learn to earn more money while spending less time on the things that are frustrating you.  I know because I was there.  If you are interested in knowing more about this process and how to qualify for one of our masterminds send us an email.
