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.

Charles Darwin

Now, if someone knew - he had to know...

This was the quote Sparkpeople e-mailed yesterday for healthy reflection.

This is a topic that has fascinated me for a long time.
I, for one, knew myself as a person who always had a terrible time  dealing with change. It is only in the past few years that I consciously challenge myself to deal with change. It is surprising just how adaptable we are.
A good recent example is Hot Yoga. The first few times you feel you won't make it. Sweat is running in every direction. As you do a forward fold, it's blinding you, runs into your nose... You are drinking insane amount of water to replace the fluids. Then... one day you bring your water bottle home with barely a sip missing...  you notice that your towel is not drenched... you recall that your eyes were no longer stinging during Forward Fold. You are tougher.
This is the physical aspect.
Once you experienced this, you can carry it with you to other, real life situations. You might just become more successful with day-to-day changes.
