30 Quotes About Change You Can Use In Your Life

It always seems impossible until its done. – Nelson Mandela

It’s difficult to change the world when we realize how hard it is to change ourselves.

While we know it is constant, our habits seem to want to push us towards staying the same. These change quotes are all about challenging yourself to pursue something greater.

Change often starts with good leadership and vision, which is why most of us benefit from a great boss or coach. Often times the best leaders find their way into business or sports, occasionally, they become religious figures or humanitarians. In any case, great leaders don’t come around very often – which is why we should take advantage of them when they do.

This collection of quotes about change gives us insight into the philosophies of those leaders, to help us understand what motivated them to believe that true change was possible. Ending poverty, slavery, injustice and other big, societal problems.

No matter what your goals are, we hope these change quotes motivate you to overcome your fears and stay on that path.
