It is not the strongest of the species that survives – Charles Darwin

Are you Adaptable?

Are you easily able to take the information, process and change course of action?

The first time I read the quote,“It is not the strongest of the species that survives…,  I only thought of it was related to biology and science. Over time, however, I have looked it from different point of view and it fits so well with the theme of Resilience  because it reminds us of how we must Adapt.

Successful people, companies are able to adapt to conditions and what is needed at any given time.

In fact, I think every one who is Resilient or is aspiring for Resilience would do well to read this quote, understand it and start applying it to their daily lives.

We have some goals, But are not always clear on what we want as the Results.

Of course telling someone to apply this concept and actually doing it are two different things. And that’s why you’re about to learn how you can make this part of you life.

Let’s jump in…

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives…

It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”

– Charles Darwin

  • Spend time focusing on what you can do given what is changing, see yourself with new goals & achieving the results you desire. Be very clear on what is the end goal. Picture and Visualize it.
  • Imagine you have achieved the goal and that you have accomplished. How does that feel?
  • Rejoice, Smile and be happy as you are now clear on what you seeking.  Go for the results and keep going until you get there.
