Before I get into this blog and share 55 of the best quotes about change with you, I want to share with you a little story and the reason why I’m writing a blog about life-changing quotes.
Now while I don’t often write quote posts on this site, I don’t mind writing one every now and then just to give you a little inspiration and motivation. I find that as we near midlife and beyond, we can experience sudden changes in life that will shock and surprise us.
Many things change in our lives, and we may not be prepared for them at all or even know how to handle them. I believe that reading inspirational material, yes, even quotes about change and growth, can guide us and comfort us.
As we grow, we go through an awful lot of changes in our lives, and I have to be honest, though I do have a slight fear of change, I also embrace it and know that these sometimes spontaneous changes are simply pushing us out of our comfort zone and preparing us for a better version of ourselves.
And the only way we grow is through change.
And I believe that—a lot. Anyway, I hope you enjoy reading these 55 inspirational quotes about change.
Inspirational Quotes Saved My Life
Let’s go back about 8 years ago or so, I was just leaving my toxic relationship, I had nothing, I was starting over at 50 with no money, no job, and I was scared out of my mind.
But one thing kept me motivated to change my life. I was continually having thoughts about making a life change.
“Iva you can’t stay like this forever”
“Iva you need to start changing your life and your ways”
“Iva do you want to live the rest of your life like this”?
My life sucked. I had hit rock bottom, yet again, and something had to give. I was tired of this miserable thing I was calling life. There had to be more, I kept telling myself.
I convinced myself there was more, and I was going to do whatever I had to do to find out exactly how MUCH more there was to this thing called life.
So I did what anybody would do. My first step was to start absorbing all the positivity I could, like:
- quotes about change,
- quotes about change in life and moving on and
- inspirational and motivational quotes
- listened to self-help podcasts
- read personal growth ebooks.
These helped me so much while I was in my dark and lonely space.
My life went through so many incredible changes over the next year that still, to this day, it blows my mind. I knew that the only way things were ever going to get better was if I decided to make great changes in my life.
I started out making small changes at first, and then they got bigger and bolder.

Can Quotes Really Change Your Life?
Can quotes actually change your life? You bet your bootie they can BUT only if you work them properly. Wait, what? How do you ‘work’ quotes? I’m gonna share a technique that has always worked for me, and I believe it will work for you too.
I share these quotes that will change your life, and you are here reading them because you WANT to change your life, right? But you have to put in the work, and your desire to change has to be bigger than your desire to stay in misery.
What I mean by that is that you really, really, really want to change. And I think you do! You have to understand something very important- change is the law of life.
Things are constantly moving and changing around you, and you need to be constantly changing as well. It’s just the way it is. The human mind is designed to change, grow, evolve, etc, but so many of us have wired it to stay in our comfort zones and live in fear.
It’s sad when you think about it, really.
So when you read these quotes, I want you to feel them in every ounce of your being, in every cell, in the blood that runs through your veins, in your soul; I mean, I want you to immerse yourself in the quote and believe it completely.
That’s how quotes work.
Let me share a video of how I changed my life and how I have faith that you can do it too! This is from my YouTube channel Women Blazing Trails. While you’re there, don’t forget to hit the subscribe button too!
