Frey Freyday -Comfort Zone

(Frey Freyday is simply a bunch of inspirational, motivational and other quotes meant to make you think, reflect, smile, even laugh a bit. Hopefully helpful, useful stuff..)

As you move outside of your comfort zone, what was once the unknown and frightening becomes your new normal. Robin S. Sharma

Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new. Brian Tracy

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. Neale Donald Walsch

To the degree we’re not living our dreams, our comfort zone has more control of us than we have over ourselves. Peter McWilliams

If you put yourself in a position where you have to stretch outside your comfort zone, then you are forced to expand your consciousness. Les Brown

The comfort zone is the great enemy to creativity; moving beyond it necessitates intuition, which in turn configures new perspectives and conquers fears. Dan Stevens

WORD TO LIVE BY:

comfort zone – n – (Psychology) a situation or position in which a person feels secure, comfortable, or in control:

When we lift weights, exercise, or physically exert ourselves, we may become uncomfortable in some way, but that is how we grow our muscles and improve, right? To get in better shape, we need to build on what we’ve already done. We need to stretch the muscle and grow. Next time that muscle will be stronger/better/improved and at another level.

Similarly, in life, we have to stretch our mind, our courage, ourselves.

We must become uncomfortable, we must step out of the comfort zone, take a chance, be willing to fail or make a mistake – all in order to grow. Its about progress, not perfection

It is easy to become complacent, become “busy”, to find excuses or distractions and stay where we are. We can still be fun, smart, lovable, etc. in our comfort zone – but soon we’ll find that we may not be growing.

The more frequently you move outside your comfort zone, the more comfortable you will get with uncertainty.

I want to challenge you today to get out of your comfort zone, just as I’m challenging myself.

We all have so much incredible potential on the inside. We all have gifts and talents in we don’t know anything about. Often in these moments of ‘discomfort’ we see different sides of us, we meet new and different people and we encounter new and different situations – all interesting and delightful.

Frey Freyday was actually born out of something I created called “Words To Live By” (WTLB). Going forward, I will now not only share the quotes, as you may be used to receiving, but also a related (WTLB). In 1999, when we had our first daughter, I was contemplating how I would raise my new beautiful child, and I was thinking about how I can best educate her and my other children about values, morals, and other key thoughts about life. School offers education. Religion offers some values and morals. Parents offer most of it, sometimes intentionally, sometimes accidentally.
So I created a (WTLB) book, like a dictionary, which lists things like honesty, love, persistence, etc. with a definition that I created, with my wife’s input. I then turned it into a workbook with one word per page and space below for notes. For years we would discuss with my two daughters and they would draw pictures and make notes in the blank space. I may share some of those images with you. As they got older, they were less inclined to draw and more open to quotes and references from adults, hence where Frey Freyday came from..
