Change is hard. It really is. We see change as something undesirable and nobody loves it. Change means that we are getting out of our comfort zone and stepping into a gray area filled with uncertainty. Why be uncertain when you can be certain? Why change when you can choose not to?
Change is powerful. Uncertainty is the first step towards discovery and breakthrough. Changing means discovering something new, moving forward and growing. If you think changing is hard, not changing is harder.
Failure to change means staying stagnant. Being stagnant only leads to mediocrity. The world changes quickly. Those who are able to change will move ahead. Those who failed will lag behind. Change is definitely happening around you. Nothing is permanent. If change is definite, why fight it? Why not embrace it?
Here are the 17 best quotes about change.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
If you have always done it that way, it is probably wrong.
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
Nothing endures but change.
When you are through changing, you are through.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you’ll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others.
Jacob M Braude
Change your thoughts and you change your world.
Norman Vincent Peale

The man who looks for security, even in the mind, is like a man who would chop off his limbs in order to have artificial ones which will give him no pain or trouble.
Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced.
James Arthur Baldwin
If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.
Things do not change; we change.
Henry David Thoreau
If there is no struggle, there is no progress.
If you’re in a bad situation, don’t worry it’ll change. If you’re in a good situation, don’t worry it’ll change.
John A. Simone, Sr.
It’s the most unhappy people who most fear change.
The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn.
