We all have a different recipe that allows us to grow and thrive. A part of Purposescaping – just like landscaping – is getting clear on what growing conditions YOU specifically need to be your best.
Just like plants come with care instructions – one may need full sunlight and regular water, while another requires moderate shade and for you to keep the soil dry – if you fail to follow the instructions you notice the plant starts to talk back to you.
It may wilt or droop, its colors may fade, and eventually, it may wither and die.
Yet when a plant’s optimal growing conditions are met, it thrives and you almost have to prune it back to contain the growth.
Why would we be any different? Human beings as living things, all have a unique imprint we came to earth with – one unlike anyone else’s. We all have an optimal set of growing conditions that, when met, allow us to thrive. Yet many of us fail to examine our own ideal growing criteria and assume we need the same thing as the next person.
How can you understand your own optimal growing criteria?
Here are a few questions to help you figure it out.
Is there a practice you used to have earlier in your life that you really enjoyed? What happened to it?
What season of the year do you blossom in?
What ingredients do you need to be your best?
What’s your rhythm for productivity?
How can you tell you need to rest?
How much engagement do you need? How much solitude?
When you feel most at peace, what have you generally been doing?
When you feel most productive, what have you been doing? What are the common denominators?
When you find yourself least susceptible to stress, what supports do you have in place?
When you feel most joyful, what is usually always involved?
Purposescaping – the art of clearing a path to your purpose – is about radical self-discovery. You probably study the needs of others who you care about the most. Now it’s time to do a deep dive on yourself and what you need to be your absolute best.
