Just read Who Moved My Cheese? by Dr. Spencer Johnson. It really illustrates the need to adapt, change, and not get lazy and start feeling entitled. Basically it’s about two mice and two mini-people that find a giant warehouse of cheese. The cheese is everything they want and they’re super happy (security, healthy relationships, money, power, etc). One day the cheese disappears. The mice hunt for another place but the people that got used to the place just get sad. One of the people eventually gets tired of waiting for the cheese to come back and goes hunting again… and finds greater treasures. A real metaphor for ife. The only catch I see is sometimes it does take a little persistence for something to develop, but I can see this as part of the hunt too. You got to get out and get violent (and persistent) to find the cheese. Who Moved My Cheese? is a really simple story with huge lessons. Definitely worth a read.
