Change is a constant. This is a universally accepted truth. Both academic, professionals success defenetly involves an ability to survive in a new environment and gradully they will get success. Hence i agree with the statement that success involves an ability to survive in a new environment.
First reason, If a person may be a professional or academicain to reach his goal or ambition he would tolerate and substantiate the environment in favour his success. For example, let me take my field famous person the great architect Mr. Laurie baker, he was a french man born 1926 in france. After his graduation in the field of architecture he came to visit india historic palaces. At that time he went to Kerala which is in south part of the India. He admired to see the places and climate. But he noted that all building are in bamboo and wooden construction. And some poor people were without house. Because the cost of wood is high. Hence he decide that to spend rest of his life in kerela and help to poor people by creating a new type of construction which is cost effective. At that result he introduced so many simple techiques wiht locally available mud and grass, thatched roof which is adopted by the poor people. And also he introduced the new type of construction, concrete roofing to withstand the rain and cold climate. He became a popular and famous atchitect around the world. Not only for the india.
He worked for past 25years. Eventually he got many awards for his excellence performance in the architecture field. Eventhough he born in france, he worked for the poor people in kerala and become more popular around the nations. He achieve his success by getting the awards and praise from the poor people. Hence i believe that to reach the success, a person should have the ability to survive the new environment otherwise he will not get success.
Second example is the Great mother therasa. Eventhough she was born with silver spoon, she dedicated her life to help the poor community and work for the improvement the poor people. To educate them, to intract with them and create awareness about the education among the people who live in very conjusted area in mumbai. At the result of she got the good fame and name around the nations. And she started a trust to service the poor people with the less number of people. Now it was developed to survive at an any problem and situation. Eventhough she is not wealthy but she got success in his interest with the ability to survive an any environment. Hence i believe that success includes the ability to survive the new environment.
Therefore good example for success person in professional is Architect laurie Baker and Mother Theresa is a good example to service the poor people both are from different country eventhough with the involvement and ability to survive in a new environment and, eventually, to change that new environment in to success. Adapt a new environment and act based on that and we will get the success. This is the success formula.Read more
