Frey Freyday- Contribute

(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….)

CONTRIBUTE – [kənˈtribyo͞ot] – give (something, especially money) in order to help achieve or provide something:

Don’t underestimate the power of your vision to change the world. Whether that world is your office, your community, an industry or a global movement, you need to have a core belief that what you contribute can fundamentally change the paradigm or way of thinking about problems. Leroy Hood

If we’re destroying our trees and destroying our environment and hurting animals and hurting one another and all that stuff, there’s got to be a very powerful energy to fight that. I think we need more love in the world. We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that. Ellen DeGeneres

The promise of the American Dream requires that we are all provided an equal opportunity to participate in and contribute to our nation. Charles B. Rangel

Having a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing seems to me to be one of the most basic principles that you can adopt to contribute to individual and world peace. Wayne Dyer

I am convinced that material things can contribute somewhat to making one’s life pleasant, but, basically, if you do not have very good friends and relatives who matter to you, life will be really empty and sad and material things cease to be important. David Rockefeller

Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy: true fulfillment. It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute… that gives meaning to our lives. Tony Robbins

People respond in accordance to how you relate to them. If you approach them on the basis of violence, that’s how they’ll react. But if you say, ‘We want peace, we want stability,’ we can then do a lot of things that will contribute towards the progress of our society. Nelson Mandela

WORD TO LIVE BY:
Contribute – By giving our time, resources, money we enrich others around us, our communities and ourselves.

There are many reasons why contributing to our world, society, community, loved ones, strangers should be a priority.

The Golden Rule or law of reciprocity is the principle of treating others as one would wish to be treated oneself. Multiple religions discuss this and atheists also often embrace it. Kharma – what goes around comes around.

Some people contribute to others in some way just because they think or feel that it’s the right thing to do.

Contributing to our communities, cities, organizations and to our world is actually self-serving, too. By contributing time, money, resources, things and people improve around us. Perhaps that person that was once struggling, now doing better, can now generate some tax base, do something productive, and contribute in some way. If we help others improve then the whole group/community/society improves.

Contributing gives us good stuff personally. When we contribute or give to others, we actually get a jolt of good endorphins and hormones in our brains and bodies as we do it. We get a good feeling from contributing. Contributing give us purpose, gives us meaning, gives us lots of good things that we need.

I recall a time when I wasn’t doing well in my career or with my personal finances. I decided to join a few organizations solely for the purpose of networking so I could get more business and improve things.

I got involved, started volunteering for things, and I became active in the actual activities. I stopped looking to receive “leads” or business and just got involved. I found that I began to enjoy life more, appreciate things more and I was in fact happier. I felt driven by a purpose and felt good about spending time/effort towards a cause. I even gave money despite being tight financially. Interestingly enough, when I wasn’t looking for leads, business and when I wasn’t concerned with receiving business referrals out of it and when I just did it for the right reasons, I then began to get referrals, get business. I believe that I acted differently and that attracted the right people and situations.

Now, whenever things get out of perspective or when I have a challenge in my life I try to reflect. Often it may be a lack of focus on my part or I’m being self-centered. Contributing in some way helps me to think outward, give and this gets me back on track in many ways.

Contributing helps us leave the scarcity mindset because we’re saying, “Hey, there’s enough time/resources/money in my life and I’m going to give some of it away….” When we contribute we act from an abundance mindset, regardless what our net worth is……

Regardless of our talents, resources, wealth and finances, we all can contribute in some way.

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….

Frey Freyday – Fulfillment

(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….)

FULFILLMENT – [foo l-fil-muh nt] -the state or quality of being fulfilled; completion; realization:

People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost. H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle. Vince Lombardi

Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy: true fulfillment. Tony Robbins

Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone’s task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it. Viktor E. Frankl

An attitude to life which seeks fulfillment in the single-minded pursuit of wealth – in short, materialism – does not fit into this world, because it contains within itself no limiting principle, while the environment in which it is placed is strictly limited. E. F. Schumacher

If you so choose, even the unexpected setbacks can bring new and positive possibilities. If you so choose, you can find value and fulfillment in every circumstance. Ralph Marston

It’s OK to have a plan, to invest in your future – for your financial security, your love life, your personal fulfillment, and even your happiness. To have personal happiness as a stated goal doesn’t detract from it if you get there. Karen Finerman

Most of us have considerable prosperity in our lives. Often, we are so busy pursuing our unmet desires that we are unable to enjoy all that we already have. Allowing ourselves to really appreciate the prosperity we have created is a big step toward opening to even greater fulfillment. Shakti Gawain

It is not in the pursuit of happiness that we find fulfillment, it is in the happiness of pursuit. Denis Waitley

WORD TO LIVE BY:
Fulfillment
– It is something that we sometimes chase yet we have it right inside of us and can find it whenever we really want. Fulfilling oneself often has little to do with thinking or doing for oneself but thinking or doing for another. Fulfillment is unique to all of us. Fulfillment is necessary for happiness, happiness is necessary for fulfillment.

What does fulfillment really mean? I think that’s up to us. I think about Robin Williams. People all over the world loved him. He made us laugh and cry. He was so talented. He wanted to achieve so many things in life, and he did so. He had a hit T.V. series, great stand-up comedy, he won awards for being a comedian and for being a serious actor. He made great movies. He had a loving family and personal wealth. He had friends and loved ones. He had all of these achievements but still he was not fulfilled.

Our society can push achievement, possessions, educational accomplishments, wealth, career…. Yet those things typically don’t lead us directly to fulfillment.

Contributing, helping others, finding and following a purpose in one’s life helps us closer to fulfillment.

Appreciating what we have, being happy now regardless of the circumstances, living in the moment and thoughts of gratitude are necessary for fulfillment.

Many of us are looking for that thing that will give us deep fulfilment. It isn’t outside of you. It’s not hiding in a job, in possessions, in a house, in a relationship, or anything else. There is nothing wrong with having those things and they are all nice things to have. But remember that deep fulfillment will not come from any of those sources. It comes from you, your actions, your thoughts, the meaning you assign to things……

You’re already a full and complete person.
