Frey Freyday – Hunger

(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….)

Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way.-Les Brown

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.-Mother Teresa

Some people are born with very little; some are fortunate enough to have it all. When I grew up, we didn’t have much. I had to hustle to get what I wanted… but I had that hunger for more. I didn’t always make the right choices, but I learned from my mistakes.-Curtis Jackson

Leaders use the emotions of hunger and drive to compel them to where they want to go. Very simply, they defy the odds—by defying their fears, limitations, and even conventional wisdom at times as well as the cultural hypnosis that leads them to accept struggle, scarcity, hopelessness and loss as unavoidable. Willing to do everything necessary to achieve their vision, leaders have set a higher standard for what they want from their lives. They have decided to step up—to take immediate action to turn their dreams into reality-Tony Robbins

I like to feel the butterflies in the stomach, I like to go home and have a restless night and wonder how I’m going to be able to accomplish this feat, get jittery. That hunger and those butterflies in the stomach are very essential for all creative people.-Amitabh Bachchan

It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.-George Eliot

We have a hunger of the mind which asks for knowledge of all around us, and the more we gain, the more is our desire; the more we see, the more we are capable of seeing.- Maria Mitchell


Hunger – [huhng-ger] – (n.) a strong or compelling desire or craving: (v.) to have a strong desire.

I am speaking of the hunger in our hearts; the hunger to do better, to improve something, to improve yourself, to work harder and smarter, to help others, to keep going, to keep working.

Often when we’re young and broke we have a hunger to do better. Sometimes when we have some kind of success or money come along, we lose that hunger. We need to keep the hunger alive, keep working and making constant, incremental improvements – even if it is not for our own benefit – perhaps it is to help others or contribute.

Hunger, not desperation, is not based in fear. It is the desire for something better and the commitment to take action until one reaches a result. The journey provides great experiences, knowledge and education. The result provides satisfaction, accomplishment and growth. Essentially if we don’t have hunger we’re not growing. If we’re not growing, are we then dying?

Hunger can be for knowledge, creativity, money, business growth, helping others, expanding and improving relationships, and much more. This type of hunger keeps successful people going and growing even after they have ‘reached success’ in our society. Hunger is defined and generated by you and you alone.-

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….
