Quotes on Change and Growth

stones on the shore

The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.” -Charles Dubois

This quote is so inspirational.  In life it is easy to identify yourself in a certain way.  You may see yourself as an artist, a good friend, a straight A student or in any number of other ways.  But it is important to not get so hung up in who you think you are and be ready to keep evolving and adapting.  Life is constantly in flux, and there are opportunities everywhere.  The best way to live your life is understanding that you must always be adapting.  You have to let go of what you are and reach out for what you could be.… Read the rest

New Opportunity Quote

door opening - new opportunities

Maybe your reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow
And when it’s time, you’ll know.

- Katy Perry, Fireworks

This quote by Katy Perry is such a hopeful quote of how it is when it seems like all your opportunities have dried up.  Maybe you are feeling like you will be single forever, or maybe that you won’t get the job that you want or maybe you just feel like you don’t really know where you are going in life.  But Katy Perry is saying that this is only temporary, even though it might not seem like it at the time.… Read the rest

Ambitions Quotes

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

~ Mark Twain

I love this quote by Mark Twain because it has happened to me so many times.  How often have you told someone what you want to do and they have told you there’s no money in that or that you won’t like it, or that it is crazy?  It happens to me all the time!  At first I used to get quite upset and start telling myself maybe they are right, but after a while I began to understand that they really didn’t know what they were talking about at all, and were probably too afraid to follow their own dreams.… Read the rest

Quotes About Moving on and Being Happy

moving throught the forest and being happy

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they’re right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

~Marilyn Monroe

This is a beautiful quote by Marilyn Monroe and so true about the ups and downs of life.  Life is constantly changing even when we don’t want it to and there is really nothing we can do to stop it.  Even by fretting and worrying about the change, we are wasting so much time as it is completely futile to live in an unchanged world.  But adopting this kind of optimistic attitude towards the changes of life will make them easier to transcend. … Read the rest

New Opportunity Quotes

key in sand

No great man ever complains of want of opportunities. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

What Emerson meant by this quote is that people who go after things and see opportunities where others don’t are the ones who are going to be successful in life.  Opportunities are everywhere, and there are so few people who can think outside the box enough to see them.  This is true of all innovative and imaginative people.  They rarely climb up the corporate ladder job by job, until they are the CEO, they start the company!

So when you are feeling like you aren’t going anywhere, and there are few opportunities that you can see, remember that opportunities always exist to the creative thinker and there is always somewhere to go even when you think that there is nowhere to go.… Read the rest
