Adaptability by Design is now Open for Business!!!
This is the title of my pocketbook for transformation from ego- to soul-based behavior through responding and not reacting. Please enjoy my journey!
Unlike most people, I've always embraced change, and I guess that's one of the reasons I named my company "Adaptability". I've lived in five different states and have always been able to make transitions with little difficulty. Being able to adapt to various work, and life, events is a helpful talent to possess.
However, like most people, I would typically react to people when I felt they were verbally attacking me. I got angry and, most likely than not, would make some equally hurtful or cutting remark(s) in retaliation. It took me a long time to go within, get to know the real me, and come to love myself.
As someone who's been described numerous times as "a strong woman", it wasn't easy to modify how I engaged with people (usually family members who know how to push your buttons). I discovered, and implemented, simple, but not easy, solutions to allow my own behavioral change. You can do it, too!!!
This book gives helpful tidbits on how you can control your egoistic behavior and allow your soul to "drive the car". The ego has it's place though, and wants to be in the back seat just in case someone is exhibiting bad behavior, overstepping their bounds and your ego must then take a stand.
Learning to bring myself into balance and harmony, and not react with my ego but respond with my soul (and sometimes responding with your soul means not responding at all ), has made all the difference!!!
