The 6 Paradoxical Human Needs

Anthony Robbins suggests there are 6 human core needs. He divides these needs into personality needs and spiritual needs. Within the personality ones, he identifies the needs for certainty and uncertainty, the need for significance, and the need for love and connection. As for spiritual needs, Anthony talks about the need for growth and the need for grounding. Although it’s not an extensive categorization of human needs, this framework makes sense to me and it is a simple way to start to get to know ourselves a little bit more.

This framework or way to categorise our human needs makes sense to me. Of course, it’s not an extensive categorisation of our needs as human beings but it’s a simple way to start to get to know ourselves a little bit more. Using Anthony’s suggestion with a twist, I think these are indeed 6 paradoxical human needs.

Delayed Gratification: A Self-Discipline Strategy For Digital Creatives

I believe that as a digital creative I can benefit from a more organised and thoughtful publishing experience. If I create a weekly commitment of writing down a blog post, I will surely be more prepared and ready to just sit down and write. That will help me with being more consistent and more present as a writer but also more available to those who read me. Instead of having a spur of a moment kind of relationship with writing and publishing, I can have a reliable and more respectful bond not only with my own creative process but also with my readers. I just have to delay the instant gratification I get from writing and publishing.
