The capitalist culture in which we grew up taught us that the economic environment and context are in charge. If we're in search of a job, of new opportunities, projects or clients, we think it is appropriate to adapt to the maximum to sell and deliver our services.
But how far should we adapt?
The danger of over-adapting is that in difficult and tense situations, you search and accept everything that presents itself that looks like work, projects or clients ... And ultimately it does not work!
Moreover, when you over adapt you go astray, you lose yourself, you de-centre yourself, you move gradually away from who you are, your values, what you want, where you add value.
How not to fall into the trap? How to refocus?
We all have our individuality, our talent, our originality. Our unique value added.
By over-adapting you lose your specificity. You dilute it.
Reconnect with it. Trust in it, feed it, develop it...
Your uniqueness is your strength. Do not turn away. Focus on it.
Explore the outside world remaining focused on who you are and who you want to be.
