Being Flexable




‘Be Clear About Your Goals But Be Flexible About The Steps Necessary To Achieve Them.’
Brian Tracy

Being flexible and versatile is an advantage if we have the desire to succeed at anything we do. We all experience day to day difficulties, delays and frustrations in our demanding work and life and when dealing with people. There are times when we have to deal with situations that do not fit in or interrupt our schedules.

One of the most frustrating things for me is when I have done my best to reach a goal, yet things still go wrong or I do not get what I have aimed for. Here is when the importance of flexibility comes in. Flexibility or adaptability is being responsive to change, the ability to fit in a changed situation or to alter and modify accordingly.

Being rigid and inflexible causes undue stress. There is a popular saying that ‘nothing is set in stone‘. It should apply to your mindset. Whatever it is that you have chosen to believe and assume can be challenged and is changeable. Develop a sense of curiosity, shift your views and look at yourself, things and people in new ways.

You do not have to stay rigid to the old you and the things that you have done in the past. Change is absolutely necessary for growth and success especially if what you have done have not worked out. When you improve yourself, your world will change for the better.

If we are flexible, we are able to adapt and to adjust. How can you adapt and adjust to enable you to succeed today?

If you’re not stubborn, you’ll give up on experiments too soon. And if you’re not flexible, you’ll pound your head against the wall and you won’t see a different solution to a problem you’re trying to solve.”
Jeff Bezos
