Frey Freyday – Possibilities

(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….)

pos·si·bil·i·ties –[ˌpäsəˈbilədē] –NOUN- a thing that may be chosen or done out of several possible alternatives:

The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create the possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create men who are capable of doing new things. Jean Piaget

My favourite words are possibilities, opportunities and curiosity. I think if you are curious, you create opportunities, and then if you open the doors, you create possibilities. Mario Testino

The possibilities are numerous once we decide to act and not react. George Bernard Shaw

One’s only rival is one’s own potentialities. One’s only failure is failing to live up to one’s own possibilities. In this sense, every man can be a king, and must therefore be treated like a king. Abraham Maslow

Stop thinking in terms of limitations and start thinking in terms of possibilities. Terry Josephson


Possibilities – Everyday we wake up and we have a world of possibilities before us. All is possible, all is open.

I don’t have much to add. Each day we have so many opportunities and possibilities before us. I know that I tend to overlook this. We get in our routines, we limit our focus and we don’t see all of what we can do and all of what is before us.

Think about the time when you didn’t think something was possible – or maybe you just didn’t even think about it at all – and then one day that all changed. The doors opened and now you see things different. A different perspective, more wisdom, more opportunities, more options.

Often we don’t know or appreciate what is really possible for each of us, but we need to push ourselves.

One day there can be an idea, a concept, a possibility….and then with time, effort, focus this possibility becomes a reality.

I am trying to keep my eyes open to more possibilities each day.

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….
