Are You a Metathesiophobic?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Connection

If you're a metathesiophobic, that is, someone who fears change - congratulations!  You're human.

 

Most of us fear change because change usually brings the unfamiliar.  When we encounter the unfamiliar, we feel like we're losing control.  So, experiencing resistance to change is a common feeling.  So common, in fact, that it's easy to find great quotes on the subject of change.  Here are some to ponder:

 

When you're finished changing, you're finished.  - Benjamin Franklin

 

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.  - Charles Darwin

 

Life is change.  Growth is optional.  Choose wisely.  - Unknown

 

We change, whether we like it or not.  - Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Your current safe boundaries were once unknown frontiers.  - Unknown

 

Change is the essence of life.  Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become.  - Unknown

 

We must become the change we want to see.  - Mahatma Gandhi

 

If you don't create change, change will create you.  - Unknown

 

The one unchangeable certainty is that nothing is certain or unchangeable.

- John F. Kennedy

 

Yes, change is the only constant.  I hope these quotes are helpful the next time someone - or something - shakes up your status quo!

Great quotes.  I embrace change...most of the time! It keeps me from getting bored, but sometimes makes things a little too exciting.  It is good to have a happy medium :).

Well, I like it when things change to the way I want them to be....

LOL

Really, you have to be flexible, while guarding the fundamental values.

I used to be real bad about change. But bit by bit i am embracing it. We have no choice.
