Adaptability is such an important and essential survival mechanism. Charles Darwin said: “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” The fact is that most human beings will not choose to change if they have a choice. But when we are forced to or if the pain of not changing outweighs the pain of staying the same, then we find ourselves adapting and looking back afterwards with surprise at what we have gained.
