“If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you”

“If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you” is a saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as posters and T-shirts. Fred DeVito, Exhale Spa‘s fitness instructor, has been credited with the saying since at least January 11, 2010.
 
“If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you” is a slight alteration of the saying that is less frequently cited.
