Able To Adapt





“The measure of a person’s strength is not his muscular power or strength, but it is his flexibility and adaptability.”
Debasish Mridha

The ability to adapt to changing circumstances while maintaining a positive, optimistic outlook is a hugely important. Sooner or later everything in life changes. If we struggle with or constantly resist change, we will always be behind the curve trying to regain something that does not exist anymore.

High flexibility is characterised by these five attributes: confidence, tolerance, empathy, positiveness and respect for others. The first attribute, confidence, means that you believe in yourself; you trust your own judgement and resourcefulness. Tolerance means you are open to accepting opinions and practices different from your own. Empathy is a term for deep feeling. It means, “I feel what you feel. I can put myself in your shoes.”

Our perspective has a lot to do with our ability to adapt. If your perception is that you like your life just the way it is and you do not want anything to change, then change represents pain and you will try to avoid it. However if you embrace the changes you face in your life….look for opportunities to grow, to develop,


And remember, doing nothing requires effort. Over time, that effort is greater than the effort necessary to improve, or move somewhere better. The trick is to redirect energy. Come up with new thoughts and new ideas as you adapt to win.

Look for ways to take advantage and to use your talents to deal with any new situation you find yourself in today.

It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change.”
Leon C. Megginson
