When it comes to change, we don’t want to hear it. We don’t want to talk about it. We don’t want to experience it.

If you want to live a fulfilled life, you can’t do it without change. As I write this note, I am changing. I am Learning. I am developing myself.

Don’t fight change. Change is not about changing your physical body. Change is about changing your soul. Change is not about you. It is about your soul. It is about your inner life. It is about your spiritual life.

To change your life, according to Nelson Mandela, you must do these four things:

You must conduct yourself with morality. Mandela said, “Those who conduct themselves with morality, integrity and consistency need not to fear the forces of inhumanity and cruelty.”

You must dedicate yourself to what you do. In Mandela’s words, “Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do.”

You must conquer your fear. According to Mandela, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

You must learn from pleasant and unpleasant experiences. “It is in the character of growth that we should learn from both pleasant and unpleasant experiences.”

Change is the way.
