40 Positive Quotes About Change & Growth To Inspire You Seize New Opportunities

It all starts with one step forward.

It is easy to be susceptible to the negative energies we surround ourselves with every day. Often times, we become stagnant in our walk through life without realizing we’ve halted our progress.

To say positive change is inevitable is one thing, but to accept this ever-changing evolutionary process is another.

When there is a new opportunity knocking on your door, the fear of the unknown begins to settle in your mind. We’ve all gone through this at least a couple of hundred times in our life.

Maybe a new job you’ve been so excited for finally calls you back, but in the back of your mind, you start to question whether you’re experienced enough to handle the role. Maybe you registered for six classes next semester with the thought of facing each of them. Then you let doubt creep in and tell you, you won’t be able to handle the pressure.

The one thing in our lives that will remain constant is change itself. Instead of fearing it, embrace it and let yourself engage in an unknown world where the possibilities are endless.

In Frank Herbert’s “Dune,” there is a particular quote I thought might fit best with our topic of discussion. It says, “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

Whenever we are intimidated by a sudden shift in our environment, relationships, and career, it’s normal to be fearful at first. Change is scary, and that’s fine!

Our normal reactions are to question the outcomes of different situations throughout our walk in life. But, we should never let that stop us from becoming our truest selves.

Here are 40 inspirational and positive quotes about change and growth to help you learn how to accept change and seize new opportunities in your life with confidence.

1. Change yourself, and the rest will follow.

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” — Mahatma Gandhi

2. Don’t stop, keep moving.

“Things change. And friends leave. Life doesn’t stop for anybody.” — Stephen Chobsky, The Perks of Being …

50 Best Brad Pitt Quotes About Love, Happiness & Being Hollywood’s Biggest Heartthrob

How is Brad Pitt doing? Better than ever.

If you don’t know the name Brad Pitt, you probably live under a rock. But if you have seen Fight Club maybe a few hundred times, you are in the right place!

William Bradley Pitt —known to all of us simply as legendary heartthrob, Brad Pitt — is an American actor and producer who has a lengthy and impressive resume. Born in Shawnee, Oklahoma, Pitt didn’t start out famous — he started his career in the film industry in college, after having a change of heart and dropping out of school just two credits shy of graduating from the University of Missouri. Brad Pitt headed straight to Los Angeles, California, at the age of 24, where he spent his first couple of months as a chauffer and delivering refrigerators while trying to figure out how to become an actor.

After he enrolled in an acting class, his scene partner asked if he would accompany her and her agent for an audition. The agent decided to sign Brad Pitt and his acting career skyrocketed almost immediately.

Brad Pitt’s first couple of appearances were in television series such as Dallas, Growing Pains, and Glory Days. In 1989, Pitt made his big day debut in the horror film Cutting Class. Soon after, he landed a role in the film Across The Tracks, which gave him the attention to be picked up for Thelma and Louise. Although he received a short bit of screen time in this film, it was enough for everyone to rewind their VCR’s and pause those moments where the (a little older than) teenage heartthrob was present.

Pitt went on to grab numerous acting roles, but one of the biggest was the adaptation of Interview With the Vampire, where he worked alongside Tom Cruise.

Brad Pitt has won multiple awards throughout his acting career, such as Golden Globes, Emmy awards, as well as many nominations. Pitt has a producing company called “Plan B Entertainment,” and he is a global activist who advocates for stem-cell research, poverty, and AIDS. Pitt is also one of the founders of “Not On Our Watch” — an organization that raises global awareness to violations of human rights in countries like Darfur and others.

Brad Pitt is easily one of the most recognizable actors in Hollywood, even to this day, and continues …

10 Comforting Bible Verses To Post On Twitter During The COVID-19 Crisis

10 Comforting Bible Verses To Post On Twitter During The COVID-19 Crisis

Inspire someone on Twitter during this dark period in history.

One post on Twitter can go viral on social media. Words make a difference in someone’s life.

So, why not post a comforting Bible verse during today’s COVID-19 crisis?

Why post comforting Bible verses on Twitter?

We are always looking for inspiration and social media is a great way to communicate globally during times of social distancing.

The potential of death and the fear the world faces at the prospects of losing someone they love open the hearts of everyone.

People are searching desperately for a kind word, a thought that inspires or to reach for the faith and the great beyond in hopes of finding answers.

There are so many questions swirling around on social media when it comes to the COVID-19 crisis.

From what it looks like, feels like and what to do if you suspect that you have caught it.

But, one question that many people have in their hearts also involves a question about their faith — why would God allow something like this to happen.

A post on places like Twitter informs the world and gives them a reason to think deeply.

When people go on Twitter, they want to find poetry in life.

Social media fuels our motivation (or demotivates us) for living, working and loving others during times of hardship.

What makes Twitter so powerful is its ability to make a point in a concise way.

It’s because we generally want our inspiration and comfort to come in a few short words.

During this COVID-19 crisis, we have heard celebrities give us their point of view.

They help us to change our perspective and to see light in the darkness, too.

When people post on Twitter, they turn to poets and philosophers to retweet their words, but sometimes a hashtag may lead someone to you.

But what we don’t realize is some of the best one-liners can come directly from the ancient texts, such as a comforting Bible verse.

It may seem like the Bible is too old or out of date to apply to our lives in modern times, but I encourage you to give it a chance.

Regardless if you are a religious person or not, these stanzas provide comfort to us all.

Here 10 best Bible verses to use as comforting quotes as posts on Twitter.

1. Nothing is impossible.

38 Quotes From Celebrities Who Know How To Make Love Last

Here are their secrets to a successful relationship.

Falling in love? That’s the easy part. But once the honeymoon dust settles, how do you nurture a loving and lasting relationship? What’s the glue that holds it all together?

From New York to Los Angeles and towns in between, YourTango set out to discover that answer by asking, “What’s the best love advice you ever heard?” 

Here, you’ll learn the marriage mantra Kyra Sedgwick shared with Angie Harmon, why actor Eric Dane considers himself so lucky in love, and much more. 

1.

“My mom always used to say, “You can’t say I love you before you can say I.” And I think that sort of makes sense.” — Mindy Kaling​

2.

“From my mom and dad, because they’re happily married for a long time: Just listen. Listen to him. I’m so independent and driven and stubborn. Just let him talk. It’s about not being so stubborn and having to win every argument. My parents set a great example. They love each other and take care of each other so much.” — Erin Andrews

3.

“It’s kind of cheesy, but my mama, who you all have seen on the show, says to cook for your man. She’s Southern, so when he comes home, be pullin’ a pie out of the oven. That’s always been her advice, and you know what? It works. Your man wants to see you in the kitchen, puttin’ some love into some food; it works for Eric, that’s for sure.” — Jessie James

4.

“The best advice I’ve ever been given is being handed a Bible. That’s the blueprint for marriage that we go by, and that’s what our marriage is grounded in. We also have other married couples who are examples in our lives. My parents have been married over 40 years, and both sets of grandparents for over 65 years. When you see couples in long-term relationships and you see them go through good times and bad times, you realize it’s about being committed enough and loving your partner enough to hang in there regardless.” — Candace Cameron Bure​

5.

“My mom told me, “It shouldn’t be that difficult.” My parents had their moments for sure, but the majority of their relationship has been really great. It shouldn’t be that much work to make love work.” — Anthony Carrino​

6.

“Always be honest.” — John Colaneri​…

20 Inspirational Joyce Meyer Life Quotes

A true woman of God.

Want to be inspired by a woman of faith?

Joyce Meyer is an evangelist, American Christian author, pastor, and president of Joyce Meyer Ministries who has helped countless women overcome their fears in life.

Who is Joyce Meyer?

Joyce Meyer is an evangelist, American Christian author, pastor, and president of Joyce Meyer Ministries.

She built her industry from nothing, except her strong faith in God, and her call to deliver others using the Word of the Lord.

Meyer was born as Patricia Joyce Hutchison on June 4, 1943.

She didn’t have an idyllic childhood. Her father left to fight in World War II after she was born.

Upon his return, she has reported that he sexually abused her throughout most of her childhood.

Her sexual abuse survivorship is a topic she discusses openly in her conferences.

Coming from difficult circumstances, it was no surprise that she married young.

Directly after high school, she was wed to her first husband.

This was not a happy marriage. Meyer was often cheated on and her then-husband would coax her into stealing payroll checks from her employer.

After five years, she finally ended her marriage. Soon, after her divorce was finalized, she met and married engineer Dave Meyer.

They were married for almost ten years before Joyce was called to preach the word of God.

Joyce Meyer is a woman of faith.

She cites that she was driving in her car when she heard the Lord call her name.

She started out small, leading a Bible study on Sunday mornings in the church basement, but it didn’t take her long to rise up.

Within five years in ministry, Meyer was the church associate pastor.

During this time, she began airing a small 15-minute radio broadcast.

As the program gained popularity, Meyer decided that it was time to leave her current position at the church and try to expand her radio show.

The broadcast was picked up by 6 networks. She was officially syndicated!

In 1993, Meyer moved her radio show to the silver screen. Her television show, Enjoying Life Everyday, is still airing today.

In 2005, Myer was listed as one of the most influential evangelists in America.

Today, Meyer is worth over 8 million dollars.

Her books were bought by Hachette Book Group for $10 million dollars, and she as her own televised ministry called, “Life in the …

50 Long-Distance Relationship Quotes To Get You Through Those Lonely Nights

Distance and time makes the heart grow fonder.

First, if you or someone you know is in a long-distance relationship, please accept the round of applause I am giving you all right now. I couldn’t imagine being apart from my significant other for more than a week, let alone weeks or months on end!

The long-distance relationship quotes below prove that life isn’t easy when you’re far apart, but a lot of the time it is worth it.

After all, the greatest love songs and poems may have come to fruition because of long-distance love.

Why is it that the strongest bonds are often miles apart from one another? There may be certain times in our lives where a long-distance romance isn’t something we’d consider. However, when you meet the person you truly love, distance is nothing but a mere pebble in your walk of life together.

50 Kindness Quotes For Kids To Use When They Are Quarantined At Home

Use being cooped up at home due to coronavirus as an opportunity to teach them kindness.

Nurturing kindness within children and making sure they learn to have empathy and respect for others — these important lessons start at home. As the parents, teachers and family of children, we should instill these qualities in our youth as much as possible to ensure that they spread love and kindness into the world. Especially now, during the coronavirus pandemic — when tensions and anxieties are high.

In today’s society, we are quick to judge others and we lack the respect of our elders, women and even children. When our youth are exposed to these behaviors, though, they begin to adapt to them and mimick them. So now, more than ever before as the majority of the world is at home in quarantine as we wait out the virus, we parents are who need to lead by example so the children in our lives can apply the positive attributes they are exposed to and eventually they will carry those into society.

To start teaching children what it means to be kind, take a look below at four routines you can incorporate into your kids’ daily schedules while they are spending time at home:

1. Be kind, smile and mind your manners.

It is a great idea to get children in the habit of smiling and expressing themselves in a positive and kind way. Remind them that having something nice to say to others are a good way to spread love around. You can remind them to smile and thank you for holding the door open for them, or to thank you for making lunch or snack.

2. Know when to say something nice, and when not to say anything at all.

Like the old saying, if you can’t say anything nice then don’t say anything at all. Sometimes holding your tongue is the best way to avoid conflict, so encourage your kids to get into the habit of saying nice things to each other, and when they are upset, backing away from the situation (rather than fighting).

3. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Remind your child that if they do something to someone that they do not like, it is not a good feeling — it might help them to try to imagine how that same situation would …
