Self-dobeing is based on the originally term introduced by the organismic theorist Kurt Goldstein for the motive to realize one's full potential: self-actualization. Self-realization is to know oneself. The term can be traced to Advaita Vedanta which means to realize the truth of one's existence. Nir Golan, Educational & Leadership expert, suggests using Self-dobeing instead of these two terms.
Self-dobeing is the heart of three cycles: Passion, Capabilities and Uniqueness.
Self-realization is identifying Passion, Capabilities and Uniqueness.
Passion: The things I like to do most and excite me.
Capabilities: Skills I'm good at and I do the best.
Uniqueness: My significant behavior and added value to those around me.
Self-dobeing is realizing one's full potential according to these three cycles.
Self-dobeing is a combination between Self-realization and self-actualization.
In Goldstein's view, it is the organism's master motive, the only real motive: "the tendency to actualize itself as fully as possible is the basic drive... the drive of self-actualization."uniqueness similarly wrote of "the curative force in psychotherapy - man's tendency to actualize himself, to become his potentialities... to express and activate all the capacities of the organism."
Self-dobeing is a combination of doing and being, therefore it is a new term. Golan assumes that these two modes should be fused and not use as a conflict term. Self-dobeing is to express and activate all the passion, Capabilities and Uniqueness of the organism.
