Hierarchy of Needs

about conscious living - coffee and a good book

Personal Development - About Conscious LivingHierarchy of Needs: I believe that building a life is very similar to building a house. We must pour good solid foundations first before we move on to the walls etc If we take the basics of Health,Wealth, Relationships and Completion into account, we are well on our way

Hierarchy of Needs

I have structured this site to address these needs. At their simplest they are:

  • Health
  • Wealth
  • Relationships
  • Completion

Now before you jump on me from a great height – we need to break things up to more easily digest them – this is my approach.

The original concept for the Hierarchy of Needs was developed by a man called Abraham Harold Maslow in 1958.

There is a level below health dealing with immediate needs for air, food and water etc. I have not addressed this as anyone suffocating in a desert is not likely to be interested in the web.
The next level to address is health. If our health is challenged, we are unable to perform our best at any endeavour – so – we need to fix that first!

Obviously, we need to address each level fully before we can move to the levels above.

This concept is quite useful as it provides a structure for us to work with when it can all seem too much. We really do need to address the lower needs first. This provides a simple priority list of Hierarchy of Needs.


Health is a fundamental limiting component of our life. If it is challenged, we are unable to properly address any other aspect of our existence.


Happiness does not just contain the mood – in my thinking it contains most of the non-physical aspects of our lives such as:

As without these being suitably addressed, we are not happy.


Whilst I address wealth as the accumulation of material goods, it is not.

A better definition would be abundance, as abundance includes increased opportunity and the attraction of fulfilling events into our life.

I break Wealth into the following topics:

  • Financial Planning
  • Investing 101
  • Mindset

The most important here is Mindset as without the investor’s mindset, the other parts are as nothing. They will never be realised.

Conscious Living

Conscious Living is a process whereby we can improve each of the aspects of our life. It provides both direction and feedback to assist our progress.
