Your flourishing is never just about you.  It is a "so that" kind of condition. God designed you to flourish "so that" you could be part of his redemptive project in ways that you otherwise could not. He wants you to flourish "so that" people can be encouraged, gardens can be planted, music can be written, sick people can be helped, or companies can thrive in ways that they otherwise would not. When you fail to become the person God designed, all the rest of us miss out on the gift you were made to give. - John Ortberg, The Me I Want to Be, Ch 2
