What I’m afraid of right now is not actualizing my potential.
When I was 16, I self-studied psychology and learned that on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, that “self-actualization” was at the top.
I suppose to a subscriber to Maslow though, you could say that self-actualization is the meaning to life.
In a nutshell, self-actualization is achieving one’s full potential. Whatever that may be.
To achieve our potential, every decision we make needs to somehow push us forward. Even the failures. Even the missteps.
There is no such thing as “right” steps towards your transcendence.
There is only just living life in the aura of transcendence. That way, everything you do fulfills your potential.
