    to be heard

    Each one of us has a deep sense of connect.

    we want to be heard not only on things that are important to us, but also by people who we value.  the yearning to communicate, participate, share one's views, get acknowledged based on those views is important.

    we also like to know that we can put our point across.  when we feel prosecuted, wronged or plain simple angry or cheated, there has to be an outlet, a listening post.


    to be loved

    the 7 want are not in any particular order, but if it were on the basis of importance, then maybe I would rank this up there.

    we all need to be loved, to be adored, to be wooed and most importantly to be secure in the knowledge that for someone, somewhere we are more than just a being.  that being with them, for them being with us, is life itself.



    to be successful

    success is has been said to have 10 dimensions or to put it another way, there are said to be 10 different types of successes

    to be successful is a need that maybe as basic as the need to exist.

    Success could be Material, Emotional, Intellectual, Spiritual, Physical, commercial, Evangelical, Environmental, Time, Collective 

    to be appreciated

    nothing like an appreciation to lift up our spirits.

    it is also how a child learns, how an individual begins to accept & trust and most importantly, how someone knows they are doing the right thing and hence living the right way.


    to leave a legacy

    the term is from steven covey, but i think its something every human works towards.

    what am I going to be known by, for?

    what is it that others will remember me with?

    to leave a legacy, to leave a stamp on the world we once inhabited and called ours, that is a need!

    to be part of a larger whole

    not that this negates the need to be independent, but people want to know what is the larger purpose their actions serve.

    what am I doing that is adds value to the larger consciousness?

    to create

    the need to create (procreate is a part of it) drives men to greater, better, bigger things.

    the need to see something form out of nothing, to be master of that one action, building, thought, art work, installation, anything will spur men to unbelievable heights!
