(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….)
Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is
over and gone. The future is not guaranteed. – Dr. Wayne Dyer
Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the
action steps. –Confucius
I never worry about action, but only inaction.-Winston Churchill
Action expresses priorities.-Mahatma Gandhi
Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own
future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your
creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what
you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.-Bradley Whitford
Action is the foundational key to all success.-Pablo Picasso
A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no
action, you haven’t truly decided.-Tony Robbins
An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory.-Ralph Waldo Emerson
There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of
comfortable inaction.-John F. Kennedy
Never confuse motion with action.-Benjamin Franklin
WORD TO LIVE BY:
Action – [ak-shuh n] – the process or state of acting or of being active
I believe that action is everything. Dumb or smart. Evil or well-meaning. Good ideas are all fine and good but without action, they are nothing.
Lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough. You must take action.
Success in any field comes from taking the initiative and following up… and then persisting and taking action on a consistent basis. To be successful, we must take control of our consistent actions.
It’s not what we do once in a while that makes us who we are, but what we do consistently.
Ask yourself, “What simple action could I take today to move toward a dream or towards success in your life? “
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….
