Change is Inevitable

The only constant is change.


“Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it – but sail we must and not drift, nor lie at anchor.”

– Oliver Wendell Holmes

The only constant is change.

Why do we fear change? Change is something that is needed. Change is crucial. Change is inevitable. Without it, life is stagnant – like a pond, slowly rotting – compared to a river, a life-giving-ever-changing-constantly-flowing source. Embrace change, and whether you’re “sailing with the wind or sailing against it” – this is life! The only one we have.

Do not “lie at anchor” or go through the motions. Occupy your life! Upon accepting that change is the only constant, you shall free yourselves of many limitations, and find fresh enthusiasm in the “New”. That choice, though difficult, is the most rewarding one and you shall discover you have much more determination, creativity and courage than you ever imagined.

  1. change for me was facing the unknown and it was based on fear rather than the endless possibilities that i could expose. Understand who you are helps a lot to see where your barriers are and how to overcome them. Thanks PMA for the tools

  2. I have always embraced changed but must be honest that the past 20 months hasnt been easy, however I am getting on with it and adapting slowly!

  3. Change is part of life and can go either way but through failure, is where we learn the most.

  4. Change is constant, and we need change with the times. Old or young, change will always be there.

  5. Change is the only constant thing in life, change is so very scary, but that is how we keep up with this ever evolving world.
