I've heard it said that the strongest tree doesn't necessarily withstand the storm, but the tree with limbs that are bendable and can adapt to the elements of the storm is the tree that has the best chance of making it through the storm.
Thank you Debe Maxwell, CRS for this beautiful, encouraging post.

Motivational Monday - Adaptability, the Key to Success

One of the wisest women we know here in the Rain, our own Barbara Todaro, has been reminding us recently about this very topic - adaptability. Our business is a fluid one and predictability is something that, if we follow our local data, we become adept with the sense of where our markets are heading.


Some things are right in front of us; others require a deeper analysis. However, knowing what to do with the data we collect and our sense of our own business is also essential in planning and goal-setting. The real key to success? Adaptability.


Adaptation = Success


Change is not always welcomed but, when we are at the helm, in control of our own business and the changes within, change is much more palatable...or it should be! 


Here are a few other quotes to consider with regards to adaptability. Thanks, Barbara, for the inspiration for this week’s motivational post…


Adaptability is not imitation. It means power of resistance and assimilation.” Mahatma Gandhi

The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surroundings.” - Kakuzo Okakura


Change - Will you Adapt?Adaptability is being able to adjust to any situation at any given time.” - John Wooden


And the most successful people are those who accept, and adapt to constant change. This adaptability requires a degree of flexibility and humility most people can’t manage.” - Paul Lutus

Adaptability is the simple secret of survival.” - Jessica Hagedorn


Action and adaptability create opportunity.” - Garrison Wynn


Adaptability enforces creativity, and creativity is adaptability.” - Pearl Zhu




When you're feeling that discomfort we feel when change is on the horizon, remember Darwin's quote. Adapt and embrace the 'new,' for that will open up a whole new world of possibilities for you.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.” - Charles Darwin


Happy Monday!

Psych 101 - 1977. Probably one of the few lessons I remember--verbatim--to this day:

"Intelligence is the ability of an organism to ADAPT itself to the old and especially the new situations in its environment."

The rigid and unbending among us make things tough on themselves.
