People who are adaptable can plan their thoughts in a way that creates appropriate and positive actions. Adaptive abilities are necessary when changes are made to individuals and their circumstances.
Adaptive behavior is age-related skills that enable us to participate in the daily life of our lives. We can also think of adaptive behavior as a skill that allows us to be flexible when a change occurs in our lives or jobs.
If we are adaptive, we will respond to unexpected events or uninhabitable creative or constructive actions. An adaptable person is able to regenerate the mind in new directions and make decisions based on his or her consequences. He or she is open to change, knowing that it is the relevant sail – not the wind.
Consider these five life skills to face upbuilding circumstances in everyday life.
1. Stop and think about avoiding misinterpretation. Take the time to carefully analyze situations. View the actions and situations from different angles and perspectives to get an accurate understanding of what has happened. If people are involved, share your concerns and ask questions for information that may not be obvious. This will allow you to make an informed choice.
2. Think long term. Ask yourself "What if?" questions. Think about the consequences of dealing with situations in many ways. Ask, "What will I lose?" and "What will I get?" "How could this choice affect my family, friends, self and future protection?"
3. Prepare for change with continuous learning. The change is constant in everyone's life. The skills needed to meet a variety of needs will change through all stages of life. We will continue to need to upgrade knowledge in such areas as self-defense, relationships, parenting, and financial.
4. Look below the surface. Welcome challenges. Every challenging facility provides the opportunity to grow wiser and more skillful. Somewhere, someone has been able to cope with the same situation. Even the conditions that seem the most dreadful bear in them the seed of the new blessing. Those who seek these blessings will eventually find them.
5. Be clear about your value: the principles of your actions. Then look at your needs: the items that need to be met in a way that is true to your values. Ask yourself this question: "Is my reaction an attempt to meet personal needs in a healthy way, or is it a creative solution to some other problems?" Then ask: "Is my choice of action consistent with my fundamental value?"
Thinking conscientiously about these skills has helped many of my clients make positive choices in situations that require adjustments and problems. They can also help you. May every new challenge leave you wiser, more knowledgeable, more adaptable and more loving, today and also in the future.
