In this world success is key and just by checking out this blog post, we all want to be our best selves in every way. So are these standards possible? Yes! God created us to be filled up with his fruits daily, this way we may reach our highest potential. Granted, in order to do so you have to get real tight with Jesus. This means to have a relationship with Him and to let Jesus be your success in life.
First and for most, it is all about doing what is best for God. Doing what is best goes from spending time with God daily to eating a healthy meal. Even your environment can do a lot to your mental and physical health. When your environment is bad it will deprive and stress you out. By being in this destructive state you are not properly getting refilled with God’s fruits. Furthermore, what is happening to you is that you are giving out all of what you have and leaving yourself empty. To stress the importance of a good environment, having nothing left inside of you means you cannot give much more to work, family members, friends, and even yourself. This can lead to depression and feeling helpless.
Here is a simple way to find/create an environment you can thrive in! The first step is knowing what kind of environment you are in by observing your surroundings.
Some questions to ask yourself to see if you are in nurturing environment:
- Is it a place you can rest?
- Is it place flourishing with energy to liven you up?
- Do you feel like your settings are inspiring you?
- Do you feel like you can put out your best work right now?
- Do you feel comfortable praying to God here?
If the answers to these questions are no, then it is an unhealthy environment. You might feel limited and not able to express what is truly you.
The next step is to do some more observation of yourself or jog your memory to the times you worked/felt at your best and write down why you think it is. It could be as simple to having plants in the room, being by the window, having music on, or even the kind of people around you. Once we all find the environment that we thrive in, we should try our best to be able to go there during our day. You deserve it!
