Why you need to use the sunflower of life
We created the sunflower of life for people running their own businesses because most wheels of life which people use to score how well they are doing do not reflect the concerns of solopreneurs.
The reality is that life and business intertwine so it is ignoring a major element if you do not score yourself against how you feel your business is doing as well as all the other personal stuff.
But why a sunflower? Well it has been around for over 3000 years and has always been associated with positivity, power, focus, flexibility, strength and happiness like the sun. In China it’s very auspicious, symbolic of long life and a good luck charm for new businesses.
It is not passive, its phototropism means it follows the sun seeking out what it needs to thrive like any successful person. It is long lasting blooming for many months and stands tall with a strong stem, important characteristics for success. And it produces useful lifechanging products in the form of seeds which can be eaten or converted into healthy oil. Lastly its vibrant colour is inspiring and uplifting and its petals “rays” as they are known are perfect for a design where you want to score yourself.
Have a go and see whether your sunflower has lots of long petals or some that need some nourishment and care and attention.
