As many career councilors are advising, to be successful in the world today you have to be flexible and to develop good human relations. I think the most important skill a person should learn is adaptability.
First of all, as the world is changing from one day to another one has to be prepared to face new challenges each day and to get a new start if necessary. For example, when you face an employer you'll have to show your adaptibility as you may have the opportunity to be advanced and to face new responsabilities and tasks. Or, as life is so unpredictable one may be so unfortunate as to be left without money or house. He for sure has to be adaptable and try to build a new life.
Second of all, if we think better everybody changes along the long road of life. If the person that you choose to spend the rest of life with changes, you have to be flexible and deal with the changes even accept those changes. Otherwise the relationship is in danger.
Finally, if we think that from different reasons we may someway along the way move into another town, have a new job, a new neighbour and so on, one has to adapt and integrate into the new community.
In the end, I want to emphasize that if one is flexible he can take advantage of the new turns of a situation, he can take advantage of the others' inflexibility and become successful.
