You don't have to live very long to discover that life doesn't always move according to your plan. No matter how well we might script things out or the contingencies we try to anticipate there will be missteps along the way. There is no denying the frustration caused by these unexpected twists even with thorough preparation. It's actually perfectly acceptable to be somewhat befuddled by these circumstances. If we want to overcome them however, we've got to learn to be flexibly adaptable. Our potential to move forward in these continually unpredictable scenarios is measured in our ability to bounce back. Developing the skill of thinking on our feet and standing firm when the ground shifts around us will help us be more resilient in uncertainty.
We will run into hard, unexpected obstacles which knock us down occasionally. Learning to bounce back in the right direction helps us overcome them.
