Our subconscious mind operates on our deficiency needs and growth needs.
Based on our hierarchy of human needs, we are constantly focused on making sure our deficiency needs(basic needs and psychological needs) are being met.
▫️basic needs such as food, water, shelter, safety, security of employment and health
▫️psychological needs such as love, friendship, and belonging
Because these needs are a must for our survival, it is our main focus.
Our growth needs (psychological esteem needs and self fulfillment needs) often go neglected.
▫️psychological esteem needs such as confidence, achievement and self esteem
▫️self fulfillment needs such as achieving one’s full potential
This means that we must work to correct feelings and behaviors of unworthiness and low self confidence before we can actually be successfully on track to achieve our goals.
This is why you can get really excited and set goals only to lose focus soon after. Our deficiency needs begin to overshadow our growth needs.
