The On Purpose Growth Plan: Architecting a High Performance Life by Kirsten K. Oelrich is a book about personal growth systems. It shares insights that the author has gathered from her mentors and the high-performance systems and methodologies she has developed from her experiences. Think of it as a compass that will help you heal emotionally, build stronger relationships, and improve your overall well-being. It begins by teaching you how to develop a high-performance growth mindset and walks you through positive strategies while identifying roadblocks. It concludes with your growth transformation moment where you implement a growth plan that you can complete in a matter of hours.

The On Purpose Growth Plan lives up to its assertion that you are the architect of your destiny. Kirsten K. Oelrich is the mentor who will help you plan, design, and oversee your development program. Of course, this transformational work is not the ultimate go-to reference when it comes to personal growth systems. The great thing about this work is that it pinpoints the principles that should form part of any plan we create for our lives. In doing so we gain much-needed clarity about what we want to achieve and where we want to be. In following the strategies outlined in this book, you must choose to be courageous and open to change. Oelrich will open your eyes to the reality of living your life with brilliant design and not the default you have been embracing. If you want to be committed to having the life you want, then this book is an absolute must-read.

You will be able to discover what makes you unique, your drive, and the value you bring to others. Oelrich discusses how to identify your growth style, build your accountability framework, and apply positive growth mindset strategies. The chapters are insightful and interactive, making it enjoyable for you to learn as you experience this life-changing process. I loved the chapter on achieving a positive growth mindset the most. From that chapter, I learned a few techniques, such as resolving to gain a positive growth mindset, becoming disciplined in your thought management, being patient, and exercising perseverance during the journey.

What I liked about Kirsten Oelrich's The On-Purpose Growth Plan were the captivating quotes at the beginning of every chapter. Not only did they add some intertextual variety to the story, but they also set up the next topic for discussion. Nelson Mandela's quote was my favorite, which stated, "It always seems impossible until it's done." I also liked the review questions at the end of every chapter about what impacted me and why. They made it easy for me to reflect on my comprehension of the author’s narration and whether I resonated with her reasoning. I recommend this book to readers struggling to develop a high-performance life purpose for themselves. It will help them establish what is stopping them from reaching their goals and how to make and stick to new objectives so they can live the successful life that they desire.

As I read, I felt encouraged to improve myself not just in my professional achievements, but also in terms of my physical and mental well-being. This is the first self-help book I have read that focused on all elements of a person’s life: personal, professional, physical, and mental. I found this approach to be highly motivating and it made me feel that changing myself in one area would have a carryover effect that would help me to improve in the other ways as well. This book left me determined to start implementing changes to achieve a high-performance life for myself.
