Unless the company becomes obsessed with constant change for the better, gradual change for the worse usually goes unnoticed.
Dripping water hollows out stone, not through force but through persistence.
There are two main strategies we can try to improve the quality of life. The first is to try making external conditions match our goals. The second is to change how we experience external conditions to make them fit our goals better.
For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
Change. It has the power to uplift, to heal, to stimulate, surprise, open new doors, bring fresh experience and create excitement in life. Certainly it is worth the risk.
In asserting that people don’t change, what she means is that they don’t change for the better. Whereas changing for the worse, that goes without saying.
All change is change for the better. There is no such thing as “change for the worse.” Change is the process of Life Itself, and that process could be called by the name ‘evolution.’ And evolution moves in only one direction: forward, and toward improvement.
At the present time, the alternative is not between change or no change, but between change for the better and change for the worse.
Sometimes if you want to see a change for the better, you have to take things into your own hands.
The thing has already taken form in my mind before I start it. The first attempts are absolutely unbearable. I say this because I want you to know that if you see something worthwhile in what I am doing, it is not by accident but because of real direction and purpose.
Change does not change tradition, it strengthens it. Change is a challenge and anopportunity, not a threat.
Every body persists in a state of rest or of uniform motion in a straight line, unless it is compelled to change that state by forces having impact upon it.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
The best way to predict the future is to invent it.
