Recently, I had the pleasure of engaging in a fascinating conversation with a group of individuals at a retreat, delving into the rich subject of human needs and the pursuit of happiness. 

Our discussion led us to explore the interplay between financial wealth and true happiness, as well as the concept of self-transcendence. In this episode I’ll shed some light on the complexities of human needs and the profound impact of self-transcendence on our overall well-being.

While many believe that money and financial success bring happiness, it often falls short of fulfilling our deepest needs for connection, personal development, and contribution. 

We explore Maslow's hierarchy of needs, which highlights the different levels of fulfillment necessary for true happiness. We also discuss the concept of self-transcendence and the importance of giving back to society. 

As we navigate through these uncertain times, it becomes clear that happiness cannot be achieved solely through wealth, but rather through a sense of purpose and meaningful contribution.

Some of the things you’ll learn from the episode:

  • Happiness is not just about money, but about fulfilling our psychological needs for connection, personal growth, and contribution.

  • Maslow's hierarchy of needs explains the order in which these needs must be met for true happiness.

  • Self-transcendence, or giving back to others, is a key element in achieving lasting happiness.

To learn more about these concepts and uncover the secrets to true happiness, tune in to this week’s episode of "Inside The Comfort Zone With Adam Kawalec."
