Welcome to this edition of your Weekly Winning Resource all about the word flourish. Dr. Seligman, a founding father of positive psychology, writes, “The gold standard for measuring well-being is flourishing.”  If true, our ultimate goal is to increase flourishing because flourishing is the fruit of our over all well-being. When you think of flourishing, using a flower is a perfect analogy. If your plant blooms, it’s flourishing. If the leaves are turning brown and withering, the plant is not flourishing. It’s the same with humans. If we are emotionally well, we will flourish. If not, our lives will show it. We will be sad, short tempered, and exhausted. Here’s the great news, you don’t have to always have a sunny disposition to flourish. In fact, some of the most successful people suffer with depression, and have days of feeling overwhelmed or anxious. It’s about having the right environment. Think about the plant. For it to grow and develop blooms, it needs to be in a favorable environment for what it needs. The proper soil, hydration, fertilizer, pruning, and so on. If weeds grow, you must get rid of them. Every plant can flourish and so can every human being. You were created to flourish. To flourish doesn’t mean your life is without pain, or that you never have any bad thoughts or unpleasant feelings. It simply means you decide to put strategies in place to provide you with the right environment to continue to grow and develop.
