“All the evidence that we have indicates that it is reasonable to assume in practically every human being, and certainly in almost every newborn baby, that there is an active will toward health, an impulse towards growth, or towards the actualization.” – Abraham Maslow

I am a huge Maslow fan. His hierarchy of needs struck me from first sight a decade ago and I have found his theory to be consistently true.  It is very difficult to move onto another level of needs if the one’s below are unmet. Sadly, too many of us our just fighting for survival at the most basic level. Read the link below if interested in a synopsis of Maslow’s thoughts.
