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.

Mahatma Gandhi

If you have always done it that way, it is probably wrong.

Charles Kettering

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.

Alan Cohen

Nothing endures but change.

Heraclitus

When you are through changing, you are through.

Bruce Barton

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

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.

Leo Tolstoy

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.

Henry Miller

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.

Gail Sheehy

Things do not change; we change.

Henry David Thoreau

If there is no struggle, there is no progress.

Frederick Douglass

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.

Mignon McLaughlin

The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn.

    Hey,vincent. Nice to read your new post again.
    I love change, because change makes one city even one country gets recognizations in the world. I am from china. I can sense what change has brought to me.

    As for me,it is really so hard to embrace change though I love it from my heart.
    The problems for me is to really enjoy the moment when I am changing. As you can imagine, mostly,changing comes along with adapting to the new circumstance.Sometimes it hurts.

    someone needs change,someone have to change,someone lives better even if stay stagnant.It is all depends on your situation and what do you want from your life.

      Hi Helen,

      Thanks for dropping by again. I really appreciate it. Change is hard. Most people feel uncomfortable with it. The most important thing is to be aware of this uncomfortable feeling and still embrace it at the same time. Maybe reframing change is a good way to grow will help one to embrace it easier.

      Cheers,
      Vincent
