Maslow's hierarchy of needs

Each and everyone of us is is motivated by needs. According to Abraham Maslow 1943 paper A Theory of Human Motivation, our needs are categorized into Physiological, Safety, Love/Belonging, Esteem, and Self-actualization needs. Our most basic needs are inborn and have been with us many centuries. Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs helps to explain how these needs motivate us all.

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs states that we must first satisfy each need in turn, starting with the lowest level, which deals with the most obvious needs for survival itself.

Only when the lower order needs of physical and emotional well-being are satisfied are we concerned with the higher order needs of influence and personal development.

The converse is true in this case. If lower order needs are longer not satisfied, we will no longer be concerned about the maintenance of our higher order needs.

I totally agree with Maslow's theory.
