How can lack of flexibility prevent success

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

Success isn't possible without flexibility

In order to be successful in life you need to have certain personality traits and certain skills. One of the skills that no one can succeed without is flexibility.

Before i can tell you to be flexible in life i must first give you examples about inflexibility so that you can understand the concept of flexibility perfectly.

Success is not easy, it can rarely happen in a short period of time and it requires lots of hard work but once you know the right things you should do in order to succeed then you will find it easier to go through the road to success.

In this article i will tell you how to be flexible in life.

How to not be flexible in life

Below are few examples of people who are not flexible in life:

  • Lack of flexibility and breaking habits: Sam has been trying to break a habit since 10 years. He always tries the same methods that never work and he insists on never changing them!
  • Lack of flexibility and career path: Sarah hates her job and even hates her life for it. Sarah never though about a career change because she is too attached to her comfort zone. Had she been flexible she would have decided to do anything other than what she is doing now (see Should i quit my job if i hate it)
  • Goals and Lack of flexibility Justin has been trying to make money since 5 years using the same methods that never worked. Justin wasn't flexible enough to try something that he has never tried before and that's why he didn't succeed up to this moment

How lack of flexibility can ruin your life

Albert Einstein once said insanity is sticking to the same methods that you are used to even though they are not working.

The Law of cause and effect states that if you kept doing the same things that you always do then you will keep getting the same results that you always get.

If you want to get something that you never had then you must do what you have never done before.

Without flexibility you will remain stuck in your life without being able to change anything about it.

If you really want to change your life to the better then you must be flexible.

Flexibility in life and giving up

Some people confuse flexibility with giving up. When i ask you to be flexible in life i am not telling you to give up your big goals but instead i am asking you to change your direction whenever needed in order to reach your bigger goals. (see Should i give up on my dreams)

Successful people are the ones who keep their life goals in front of their eyes all the time then keep changing their methods whenever they don't work until they find out what works.

If you want to be successful in life then you must be flexible.
