Adapting is a skill that you need in order to survive and thrive in this life. Those who cannot do so will always find themselves stuck and unhappy. It is not that they have no skills or merits whatsoever, it is just that life is not a clear one size fits all approach. There will be times when you are thrown curve balls at the least expected times and your ability to adapt to the situation will determine your future from then on. In order for you to develop that skill, it is good to expose yourself with various information and knowledge out there. Read widely. Listen to different ideas and inputs. And when possible, put yourself in uncomfortable situations once in a while. All these ‘trainings’ will pay off when you least expect it.
