Your Most Important Career Move - Move Towards the Light

I have a plant in my family room that is a most unusual shape.

The pot is about 4 feet away from the top of the plant.

Because the plant can’t help itself.

It must move towards the spot that allows it the most access to the light.

The light that gives it the nutrients it needs to grow and be its best version of itself.
I believe we too need to move towards the light so we can receive all we need to be the best versions of ourselves. To be all we are capable of being.

3 Steps to Being the Best Version of Yourself 

Plants needs are fairly simple:
  1. Healthy soil
  2. Clean water
  3. Sunshine
Your needs are just as simple.

Ask Yourself These Questions

What does your healthy soil look like?
  • Where do you plant your roots?
  • Are you fed regularly?

What is your water?
  • What quenches your thirst?
  • What leaves you feeling sated?

What is your sunshine?
  • What nourishes you?
  • What warms your soul?


Try This:

Spend some time this week answering these questions and see where you might be able to add more nutrients to your day so that you are firmly in the light. Post your answers here.
