"To the man who only has a hammer, everything he encounters begins to look like a nail." - Abraham H. Maslow
One of the reasons that may hinder us from reaching our goals is our inability to be flexible. Being too rigid in our thinking tends to make us difficulty in adapting to change. Adapting to changes in our lives sometimes can be easy and at other times can be difficult.
Everywhere, major change is occurring. Those especially in technology fields have to rethink the way they look at markets. I remember in the past, all banks put up signs that mobile phones are not allow in the bank. However, as more and more people are having mobile phone, I could now see many people using mobile phones in any of the bank without any problem. Think why?
“The key to success is often the ability to adapt.”
"When we allow ourselves to adapt to different situations, life is easier." - Catherine Pulsifer
"The art of life is a constant readjustment to our surroundings." - K. Okakaura
“The wise adapt themselves to circumstances, as water moulds itself to the pitcher” - Chinese Proverbs
“Enjoying success requires the ability to adapt. Only by being open to change will you have a true opportunity to get the most from your talent.” - Nolan Ryan
"If you do not change, you can become extinct. Get out of your comfort zone and adapt to change sooner. Take control, rather than let things happen to you." - Dr. Spencer Johnston
The only constant is change. Sometimes things change and are never the same again. Will you be ready?
