People have an instinctive ability to adapt to most situations and often live by the adage “It is what it is.” Regrettably, while our ability to adapt is amazing, our ability to change isn’t. When you least expect it, life challenges your courage and willingness to change. In such moments, you can either accept it for what it is or make it what you want. Just as failure is a vital part of success, every
DETOUR is a critical part of your trip and allows you to exercise creativity and resourcefulness by moving forward in ways you had not anticipated.
