Change is life. And life is change. 
If we are not changing, then something else is happening in our lives. 
Change is not easy. But without change, we are not going to grow. 
If you really want to grow, to expand yourself, 
then enjoy these three change lessons from Saul Alinsky.

"Change means movement.
"Change means movement. Movement means friction. 
Only in the frictionless vacuum, of a nonexistent 
abstract world can movement or change occur 
without the abrasive friction of conflict."- Saul Alinsky

We need a bridge
"Men don't like to step abruptly out of the security 
of familiar experience: they need a bridge to cross 
from their own experience to a new day."- Saul Alinsky

We must work together
"Change comes from power, and power comes from organization.
In order to act, people must get together."- Saul Alinsky

What is courage? 
Courage is when you go after what you want, no matter what.
Courage is when you are not scared to stand up for yourself, 
for your values, and for the people around you.

Courage is when you have the mind 
to make progress every day, no matter how small.

Courage is when you have the power to do what is unpopular. 
Courage is when you have the spirit
to dive into the ocean of the unknown.
Courage is when you are honest with yourself. 
And courage is the foundation of life. 
If you lack it, you have nothing.
