Self-actualization is the full realization of your potential. You have a desire to become something. There is an unction in your spirit to fulfill your calling. Without me really explaining too much beyond that I suspect you know what I mean. You are a spiritual being having a physical experience. The world did not give you your wants and desires, the world is the platform with which we get to express those divine inheritances.
The word “de-sire” means “of the father.” What is placed in you is your call. Your call is a divine impression on your spirit. Your call is what wants to manifest itself through your life. The manifestation thereof is your self-actualization. This is described as an essential life need. To achieve purpose you must self-actualize. The process of self-actualization is multifaceted and can have many approaches. A couple barriers to self-actualization are your satisfaction of the hierarchy of needs and your depth of self-awareness.
