“AdaptAbility,” discussing the book by M.J. Ryan

A Review and Open Discussion on the Book:

AdaptAbility: How to Survive Change You Didn’t Ask For

The book written by M. J. Ryan

10.19.10 7 P.M.


Greetings All,

The change that we create in our own lives we welcome. We rebel and greet with anguish the change that is thrust upon us from external forces. Why such different reactions? Experts warn that the changes that we have gone through have only been training maneuvers for the changes that are to come globally and that our very existence may depend upon how we greet the coming years. Is there hope? M.J. Ryan assures us that there is hope and offers a small and easy read book filled with tips to make the speed bumps a tad less painful. A secondary theme for the discussion will be in handling the inherent stress that so many of us are facing now.

“AdaptAbilities” that we will discuss:

  • “Welcome to Permanent White Water”
  • The Truth Will Set You Free (Or at Least into Motion)
  • What Core Issues Does This Trigger?
  • Relate to Your Fear
  • Could this be good luck?
  • Regret Well
  • Stay Open to Miracles
  • Does Your Self-Concept Need to Change?
  • Create a story of Possibilities
  • Get the Balls in the Air
  • Do What’s Needed
  • Loads of Resources


It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. – Charles Darwin
