Self- actualization may cause anxiety and our frustration,(ArgosyOnline2010). Maslow defines self- Actualization to be thedesire for self-fulfillment, (ArgosyOnline2010). Positive attributesneed to be a part of Childs everyday goals.Based on lectures and required chapter readings, every individual reaches his or her self-actualization the best way they know how.Humans need love, respect and a general self
concept to grow.Thos will help an individual reach his or her goals.Barack Obama stated early in his election, that he was his
mother’s life. He knew he was loved. He always wanted to please
her. He understood at an early age, the sacrifices she made for him.This had to be a positive antecedent in his self-actualization.
Based on Maslow’s Self
-Actualization, Barack Obama had a positive role model that allowed him to explore and enjoy life. Healso knew he wanted to prove to his family that he would not let them down. Barack Obama pushed through life and he met diversity in his education.Nevertheless, he pushed through his difficult times and reached his highest potential. Empathy for humanity has been one of his remarkable attributes. A need for positive regard can make or break a nonprofessional, (Argosy Online2010).
