Nature often holds up a mirror so we can see more clearly the ongoing processes of growth, renewal, and transformation in our lives.
~ Mary Ann Brussat
All things must change to something new, to something strange.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 – 1882)
Any transition serious enough to alter your definition of self will require not just small adjustments in your way of living and thinking but a full-on metamorphosis.
~ Martha Beck
If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we are not really living.
~ Gail Sheehy
Only the extremely ignorant or the extremely intelligent can resist change.
If we can recognize that change and uncertainty are basic principles, we can greet the future and the transformation we are undergoing with the understanding that we do not know enough to be pessimistic.
~ Hazel Henderson
There can be no transformation, no awakening, without the ‘here and now’ experience of life, which involves all of our being, not just our intellect.
~ Robert White
All personal breakthroughs being with a change in beliefs. So how do we change? The most effective way is to get your brain to associate massive pain to the old belief. You must feel deep in your gut that not only has this belief cost you pain in the past, but it’s costing you in the present and, ultimately, can only bring you pain in the future. Then you must associate tremendous pleasure to the idea of adopting a new, empowering belief.
~ Anthony Robbins
Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world, for the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
~ Mahatma Gandhi
