Change can be equal parts terrifying and exhilarating. For many, sticking to a routine, or letting things continue as they are, seems safer and easier. But, shifts and adjustments are inevitable. Rather than attempting to avoid change, embracing it can have positive impacts. Once you learn to navigate change you may even seek it out as a way to create improvement.

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
– George Barnard Shaw

Change is the catalyst for progress. But, to experience the growth, or to see progress, we must first embrace innovation and the idea of transition. Inflexible thinking leads to stagnation, but an open mind invites possibility.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
– Barack Obama

There is no better time to embrace change than right now. Advancement and transformation can start today, if we make it happen. There is no one more qualified or motivated to usher change into your life, or into the world, than you.

Sometimes it’s the smallest decision that can change your life forever.
– Keri Russell

Change can seem overwhelming, and often, we feel too small or insignificant to make a difference. But, change doesn’t have to be large scale to be effective. Adjusting the tiniest of details can ignite a metamorphosis.

Progress is a nice word. But, change is its motivator. And change has its enemies.
– Robert Kennedy.

Whenever you try to create positive change, there will always be difficulties and trials that threaten to help progress. Continuing on the path to success means overcoming obstacles and sticking to commitment to change.

My friends, love is better than anger. Optimism is better than despair. So, let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic and we will change the world.
–  Jack Layton

In a world that can be full of negativity, an open mind and a positive outlook can be a powerful force. It only takes determination and love to create change in your life and in the world.
