Adapt 2 Change

The Art of Adapting to Change



One of the main reasons that may hinder us from reaching our

innermost goals and desires is our inability to be flexible.


This fact may be hard to swallow, but it's true.  We do

everything we can to eliminate any type of suffering in our

lives, yet challenges and pressures can bring out the best

in us.


If you have been burdened by mistakes in the past, learn from

them, forget about them, and move on.  Some people tend to

focus on how bad their lives have been due to these mistakes.

As a result, they remained stuck in their miserable lives.


Treat your mistakes as lessons, and apply them as learning

references in your future endeavors.


So what if you invested in a business and you lose a ton of

money?  In this situation, some people would remain deeply

discouraged for a long time that their personal lives are

being affected negatively.  They can't eat well and they

just stare at the ceiling all night long, thinking how this

bad incident happened.  Furthermore, they would probably vow

not to venture into new opportunities again.


You don't have to be like them.  If you're afraid to fail,

then you risk all your chances to achieve your goals in life.

Try again; but this time, be more careful and use your past

mistakes as guide maps.


Look at it this way.  If you try, at least you get a 50%

chance of getting what you want.  But if you did not try

at all, you have absolutely no chance of attaining your

desires in life.  It's a no-brainer.


But when you try, make sure you follow through.  I've met

so many people who have accepted my proposal to write

reports for me, but most of them would stop right in the

middle of their work and quit.  They have the drive to

start, but they lack the motivation to go through all the

difficulties.  Yes, this is another fact of life.  Those

who persist may have some hell of a time at present, but

they shall have the last laugh.


Let's fast forward into the future.  Let's say you did try,

you followed through, and you succeeded. Congratulations.

So you became wealthy by reaping the fruits of your labor.

This does not mean you'll stay in that situation for good.

Problems may rise again, so always be ready to adjust to

the current situation.  The only thing permanent in this

world is change.


If you need to sacrifice something for a better cause,

then do it.  If you have to miss your favorite show on

TV or if you have to deny your friends' invitation to go

out on a Saturday night so that you can devote more time

to those activities that will lead you closer to your

goals, so be it.


You may encounter difficulties. You may receive criticisms.

You may even be regarded as being "different" or "strange"

by other people.  Don't let them discourage you.  Just

keep on striving, and success will be yours for the taking.
