We reap only by first sowing and constructive and conscious effort is required every moment as nothing in life is obtained without effort. We must remember to lay the foundations well and “leave no stone unturned” if we truly wish to fulfill our ambitions. Nature goes through phases of seeding, nurturing much before the fruition occurs. We must never forget ancient wisdom that says, “As you sow so shall you reap” . The Yogic concept of SWADHARMA or ‘self responsibility’ and the psychological concept of Self-actualization have many similarities. Self actualization is a term originally introduced by Kurt Goldstein for the motive to realize one's full potential. In his view, it is the organism's master motive, the only real motive. However, the concept was brought most fully to prominence in Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs theory as the final level of psychological development that can be achieved when all basic and mental needs are fulfilled and the "actualization" of the full personal potential takes place. The great minds of our Indian culture have given us thoughts about responsibility in such a lovely poetic manner. One such example is the Purananuru that is a Tamil poetic work belonging to the Sangam period corresponding to between 200 BCE – 100 CE.
