Maslow's heirarchy is really interesting, it kind of lists out the tools you need to maximize your health and your life.

But it is a pyramid and it has this built in assumption that you're starting from a blank slate.

What if you aren't starting from a blank slate?

I think of working towards health is like peeling an onion, addressing each item as you work down towards the center, addressing the outside layer unlocks the next layer. From the outside in it might look something like this:

  • hopelessness
  • victim mentality
  • independence
  • boundaries
  • self respect
  • self esteem
  • authenticity
  • ego

I think that's a basic outline towards a positive, secure, highly aware, egoless person. It would be a platform for building towards things like care, liberation, wisdom, moral character, inner strength, balance, harmony and ultimately your life's purpose.
