Ep. 122 - Adapt and Succeed

Thanks for joining us on Think Enriched.  I’m delighted to have you here!

Welcome to Your Monday Maxim with Amy:

This your mental Vitamin B. Each Monday I share a little motivation & insight to start the week. You’ve got a lot of people depending on you. There is big work for you to do. So here’s a maxim for you, the smart, ambitious woman, to help you SHINE.

Today’s Monday Maxim

Oh my gosh!  My friend, we’ve got it all wrong…  that quote, the classic Darwin theory that tells you, “Survival of the fittest…” is WRONG.

Do you know what he really said?  

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

As smart, ambitious women, we are continually adapting.  That is our power skill!  If we were all playing Super Heroes, wearing our capes, masks, and tights, we could always use our superpower of adaptability to make the situation work for all those involved. 

And we do it without even thinking about it.

Just this morning at the bank, because the internet was down, the computer system at the bank was down.  They were working slow.  I was there right as the bank opened and there were about 12 people in front of me in line.  And people were freaking out.  

The young girl in front of me texting like her life depended on it and rolling her eyes at everyone around her...just stopped, huffed out loud and stormed out of the bank.

Some people cannot adapt to change.

We see people around us stuck.  What they did 3 months ago… or 3 years ago… or when they were 23… is exactly what they plan to do right now.  And tomorrow.  And forever.

These people aren’t happy.  They aren’t looking forward to making things work.  They are unwilling or don’t know that they need to adapt.

The big secret?  You can’t change them. You will not change them.  The change willingness to adapt comes from within.

What about when you find yourself stuck? You can always yell, “Plot twist…” and move on. 

“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

Remember Lean on Me, the movie of the New Jersey high school principal, Joe Clark?  He's sharing some insight today on your Monday Maxim.

This your mental Vitamin B. Each Monday I share a little motivation & insight to start the week. You’ve got a lot of people depending on you. There is big work for you to do. So here’s a maxim for you, the smart, ambitious woman, to help you SHINE.

“Self-respect permeates every aspect of your life.”  - Joe Clark

I lived in New Jersey for nearly a couple years.  That's where I learned to speak Spanish. That area, Paterson, New Jersey, is where I was assigned as a missionary for my church.

Our local congregation's leader lived right around the corner from Eastside High School in Paterson.  First, Crazy Joe had to kick out the drugs and problems and focus on those who were coming to school to learn.

This is a perfect lesson for each of us today.

Kick out the stuff that doesn't belong.  Focus on the good. 

The respect you give yourself is the same respect that others give you.

How do you start to give yourself respect?  You earn it.

Be dependable.  If you say you are going to get up when the alarm rings, do it.  Don't hit snooze.  Get your feet on the floor and walk. It feels great once that warm shower hits your body.

Commit to yourself. When you make a commitment to your family, friends, or work, you know that job will be completed.  That's what makes you a smart, ambitious woman. 

What about you?  If you tell yourself you are going to exercise at 7:30pm, but someone needs your help... you push it aside, don't you?  Of course you have.  No more.  You can tell your family & friends, "Look, I will happily help you, but first, I'm going to do this..." then walk out the door, they may be stunnned.  But they know you are serious.  The people in your life aren't taking you seriously because you don't take yourself seriously.  

Kick out the junk.  It's spring here in the Pacific Northwest.  I'm on a spring cleaning high!  I love getting rid of all the junk that has accumulated over the winter...(Where did all of that stuff come from, anyway???)  What is left is space to move and breathe.  A better environment for all of us here.

It's the same with your habits.  You may have collected a few that are holding you back.  You know it's time.  Replace those habits with healthier ones and see how those tiny steps add up to big changes in your life.
