In order to deal with life’s challenges. In order to become the person you want to be. You must first create an environment which promotes and stimulates growth. If you were trying to grow a plant from a seed, you would need to plant it in nutrient rich soil. Make sure it has enough sunlight and water. In ideal conditions it will flourish and grow. If it were neglected or not given a suitable environment, it would surely perish and wither. You are like the seed. In order to flourish you must give yourself the best possible set of circumstances in which to do so. You must look after yourself physically, emotionally and spiritually.
