What is the Life Purpose Pyramid?

Purpose: The pyramid guides individuals to use their inner talents to help themselves, others, their community, society, and the world, while experiencing meaning and purpose, and ultimately reaching their full potential.

Why does the pyramid exist: The development of the pyramid was inspired by Abraham Maslow's work of the Hierarchy of Needs Pyramid, as self-actualization is the highest human need. However, there is no clear model on how to help individuals reach self-actualization. Dr. Tran created the Life Purpose Pyramid to guide individuals to reach self-actualization.

What is self-actualization: A process where individuals go on an ongoing quest to learn, grow, and use their inner talents and creativity to discover who they are and contribute to society. They will become the best versions of themselves in the process.
