Change is the only constant in life

The pre-Socratic Greek philosopher, Heraclitusquoted – Change is the only constant in life. We all go through changes every day. Some are expected, some are surprising, some we accept with our whole heart, while some we dread. Changes affect us all, and we all have our coping mechanisms in place to deal with them. What about you? Do you accept or resist change?

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”

What does Change is the only constant in life mean?

“Change is constant” means that change is transpiring continuously, while “change is a consistent” means that change is an always-to-be-expected condition. Nothing is permanent except change.

Over the course of years, I have realized that it is not the change in my life that I detest but it is my own mental challenge of getting out of my comfort that creates an obstacle to embracing the change. Every single change in our life leaves an everlasting impression on us in one way or another. Life comes with its own share of ups and downs, and whether we like it or not, many of our plans do not unfold the way we had planned them out to be. Change is the only constant in life.

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. -George Bernard Shaw

The rate of change may be different for different things, so we get the illusion of permanence regarding certain things if their rate of change is slow. So, when the rate of change of a person (or institution, or situation) suddenly increases or decreases we are taken aback and feel alarmed that “things are changing suddenly”. We can extrapolate that to our daily lives as well. Nothing EVER rests everything moves and changes – that’s how nature is and that is why Change is the only constant in life.

Why should you embrace change?

The great news is that embracing change is not a complicated skill to learn. Once you begin to look at change as a healthy thing, you’ll be amazed at some of the advantages that can follow. Here are some very important reasons why embracing change is a very good habit.

1. Flexibility with Change – 

Have you heard anyone say “Nothing changes, if nothing changes”? If you want a certain change in your life, you have to break the life cycle that you are currently living. For eg – If I want to lose weight, I cannot achieve it just wishing for it. I will have to start working out and eating mindfully OR If I want to learn a new skill, I will HAVE to challenge myself to unlearn what I already know to learn something new. 

2. Change makes you stronger – 

Without being required to accept changes, you may never discover the true depth of your own strength – including your capacity to accommodate to new challenging ways. Sure, it is tough in the beginning but as you realize the goodness it withholds, you will learn to embrace the change because Change is the only constant in life.

3. Change brings new schedule to your daily life –

Change keeps your mind active, refocusing your thoughts so your mind stays active and doesn’t become fixated on negative thought patterns.

4. Opportunities that come with change

Change can present opportunities that can have a domino impression, furnishing you with more alternatives than you ever imagined were possible – so you can create a more fulfilling and factual life.

5. Any Change helps you grow

Variations often force us to readjust in ways we’ve never endured, which can be a major driver of personal (and even professional) growth and extension. Always Remember – Change is the only constant in life

How to bring Change in your life?

Change is so many elements. It’s scary, thrilling, and variable, but most of all its imminent. Take a moment and think what was the most important thing for you 6 years ago? What about your favorite food or the clothes you wore? Are your choices still same? I highly doubt so!

Change is the only constant in life – Simple ways to bring change!

1. Have a positive mind 

Before you embrace any change, think positively. think about the goodness this change is going to bring in your life. Your mind’s perception is what drives your life. If you start with a negative, closed mindset you’re immediately shirking yourself off from any possibilities because you can’t see through the negative.

2. Say bye to friends who DO NOT support your growth

Our friendships, in many ways, help us decide the BIG things in life. Some buddies bring you down and narrow your potential for concrete change. Check who is compatible with you and who can help you in your growth rather than pull you down.

3. Change Your Routine

Sticking to the same routine is not going to bring a change in your life. As I mentioned above, every change in your life needs you to change something. Change is the only constant in life

4. A Mentor to guide you through the process

A mentor isn’t an obligation. But for many of us, having someone to lead us and help us think the way we should and it’s always easy to acquire through someone else’s successes and losers.

Change is the only constant in life

Change is unavoidable. It’s like the constant engine arriving at the station, you cannot stop it from reaching. We must climb on that train of change and see where it takes us. Afterall, Change is the only constant in life.

What significant changes did you deal in your life and how did you deal with it? What do you think about Change is the only constant in life ?

  1. Loved Your Take.
    True…Change is constant and the one who adapts to the changes with easiness emerges as a winner in life. I accept changes easily but I don’t leave good things behind…I carry on along with me all positivism, friends and relationships and drop negative pages while pushing myself ahead with time.

  2. Change is inevitable and we have to deal with multiple changes at different points in life but as you said changes accepted with a positive mind often helps us to deal with it properly.

  4. Yes indeed. Change is a part and parcel of everyday – our thoughts, lifestyles, age – everything is changing and evolving md it really is up to us to embrace thst and keep moving ahead

  5. Change is constant in every individual’s life. I am still trying to accept the change in the city after marriage and accepting the fact that I’m almost 8hrs away from my family 🙁
    Although this change taught me many things too 🙂 making me stronger and positive day by day 🙂 #InvincibleGang

  6. Nicely put across! Its true, change is the only constant. But most of the times, we tend to be resistant to it, because we often seek comfort in the familiarity of the old, even if it is less convenient than the new…

  10. I agree..change is the only constant. One needs to remember this as it makes things easier. #Bloggingdivas #Openntalk

  11. What a beautiful post, it left me pondering about life and how sometimes we put in all the efforts just to avoid that change in our lives. But, you said it right, change is the only constant and one should accept it to make life better.

  12. I completely agree with you! Change is inevitable and change is needed to progress! We need to accept changes and move ahead! Loved the post!

  13. Change is the only constant in life. I have made a truce with change. Initially I hated to readjust to certain changes but off late the understanding of this whole cycle of change has me warming up to the concept

  14. it is our own mental block that does not allow us to change for the better. If things had not changed in past few decades we would not be reaping fruits of success here on this planet. Bring about change from within is essential first to see the change happen outside.
