How flexible are you when it comes to going after what you want? Many people give up on what they desire because they aren't willing to compromise on the 'how' to get there. Flexibility allows you to put aside rigid perceptions and truly observe that there are always multiple paths to the same destination.
Flexibility does not mean you put aside or give up on your dreams; it is about being aware that you can change how you get there. Adaptable people are the happiest and most successful. If you want to be more open to your possibilities, here are a few tips to help you be more flexible and find comfort in knowing things are always working out for you.
Be grateful for what is.
Look at your blessings. Being more aware and grateful for what you have helps you see what can be possible. Use what you have to create your possibilities. Trust things are going just right, and they will get you where you want to be in the right time. Don't ever look at your progress as a failure; you are always learning, never losing.
Learn to change when a situation changes. It is good to plan, but sometimes not all contingencies are considered. Focus on what you can change and release what you cannot. Being adaptable helps you shift more quickly when you have prepared.
Be calm and controlled.
Think before you react, and you will control your response. Take your time and gather information before choosing your best options forward. When you react, the situation is in control of you. When you respond, you are in charge of what you create, and you are more flexible.
Get comfortable with changing your mind, especially when you are given more information. Don't be afraid to say you have changed your mind and stand up for that change. Flexible people aren't scared to alter their opinions as they take in new information.
You create what you want. Yes, things might not go how you want it, but you are the creator of the solutions to keep moving forward. Only you can view your world the way you want it. Look at where you are, through an open and creative lens; this can help you be more flexible. There are always more routes, more opportunities, and more possibilities available; only you can create them.
Be more self-trusting.
You are the only one that can believe in what you do. Work on developing a strong sense of trust by creating a good understanding of yourself. You can acquire this by making time every day to find what you need to feel good. When you know what keeps you motivated, you adapt to change. Sometimes what you think you want is not what you need. In recognizing your actual needs, you see that there are many ways to get you there.
