Unconscious motivation

I’ve been reading the wiki at https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Motivation_and_emotion/Textbook/Motivation/Unconscious_motivation#The_History_Behind_the_Unconscious_Motivation_Concept , and as I come to ¬†understand it I’m correcting little grammar mistakes of tense, and trying to make things a little clearer.

“The Esteem Needs- Esteem needs are the last of the basic needs and are divided into two types of needs. The first is based on our need to see ourselves as competent, achieving individuals. The second is the need for esteem based on the evaluation of others. This is the need for respect and admiration from other people around us (Maslow, 1968).
The Need for Self-Actualisation – The highest level of needs is for self-actualisation. Maslow believes once an individual’s basic motivation needs are met then they start to focus on what they want from life. He suggests the needs of self-actualisers are qualitatively different; he describes them as metaneeds (Maslow, 1968). Metaneeds are, being concerned with higher aesthetic and moral values such as beauty, truth, justice, and ethics. Maslow also states, that not many individuals will achieve self-actualisation but many will strive to do so (Maslow, 1968).
