Letter James:12-17 shows how you find whether you're planted by God or others. It begins in the part of "Trials and Temptations".

'Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;
but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.
Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.'

You should surely bloom where God puts you; the place is where you can stand His trial. Meanwhile, when you're planted in the other place that you have dragged yourself down to by your own weakness; it is the place of temptations. It comes from Evil One. You are easy to see which place you belong to by the fruits from there. Some good and "perfect" gifts are always brought to you from above, from The Almighty Father. Therefore, you feel peaceful joy in the place where He plants you. However, in the place of temptations you would never enjoy such a feeling. What ever success or applaud shall never have you satisfied. Even on the top of a mountain, you always get afraid of losing something on a next step. It's not a place to be for you, because you face a temptation therein.

Bloom where God puts you; it is His gift for you to be mature. However, Move away from where you're planted for temptations; you can see the fruits from there.
