Lux Coaching: Who are we?
We have finally joined the ranks and created a blog. This is our first post, just to let you know a bit more about us and what we do. Here’s to many more posts to come!
Our basic instincts, as humans, encourage us to continually better ourselves, to be the best that we can be. And, as we reach one level, there’s another one to climb to. Our progress is, ultimately, what determines how happy we are in ourselves and in our lives.
Here is our Goal Ladder (based on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs):
For us to be the happiest we can be, we need to reach the top level, self-actualisation. In order for us to get there we need to have climbed every single other rung on the ladder.
How do we do this?
By ensuring that all of our needs are met at each level. If some of these needs have not yet been fulfilled, we must work on them before we can climb to the next rung.
What are the needs at each level?
Physiological: These are our basic survival needs- food, water, warmth and shelter.
Security: This refers to personal security, financial security, health and well-being, and general safety and protection.
Importance: This is the need to feel loved and a sense of belonging, including friendship, family and intimacy.
Esteem: This refers to our need to have self-esteem and sef-respect, but also includes having the respect of others and a good reputation/status.
Self-Actualisation: This refers to personal growth and fulfilment, and differs for every person, but centres on the desire to reach your full potential in life.
Which level are you at now?
Which level would you like to be at?
Our job is to help you climb your own ladder and become the person you’ve always wanted to be. But we only work with people who are committed to helping themselves. No half-hearted attempts please!
