How do you combat change or what is the way of dealing with changes and of how to better yourself at changes in life? The answer to this is ‘adaptability’. By building on your adaptive skills you can learn to welcome change. As Charles Robert Darwin said: It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change. It’s now more important than ever to be flexible and agile, with plenty of resourcefulness and creativity to respond effectively to challenges and grab new opportunities. According to Jasper, "To change, be different, be interesting, be brave and have some charm"
