Sometimes in life adapting will be what you need to do to overcome. It's just part of it. But what you do after the adapting is what makes your break you.

Here's how I like to look at it.

Overcome, adapt, THEN ATTACK...

The attack part is where most people don't take action. They adapt and after they adapt they kind of just sit there. 

Watching the new Top Gun Maverick movie last night, --- wait spoiler alert ahead, stop reading if you don't want to know the rest --- Maverick in one of the last scenes he gets taken down by a SAM (surface to air missile), then Rooster comes back by, saves Mav. Eventually the 2 get reunited, where Rooster then says, "now what?"

How many scenarios do you get in life and go "now what?". If you're like me, it's a lot, and that's ok. It/s what you do afterwards, that makes the difference.

That's where the adapt, attack mindset has become a key part in my daily routine. Yes - I said daily. I ask myself many times throughout the day / week "now what?!"

Like Maverick and Rooster, they had to overcome, adapt, then attack. They found another old gen fighter, took the sky and... eventually made it back to the flight deck.

In your real life, you'll be faced with many options to overcome, adapt, but it's the attack that is going to get your out alive.

It's the attack that makes your lethal to your goals in attaining them.

So, next time you think of overcome and adapt... then go ATTACK!
