15 #RayQuotes on Comfort Zones

Happy Saturday! I was pondering the subject of comfort zones today and how easily they can capture us and steal our dreams.

Some of you know I love coining new motivational quotes. Over the years Twitter became my repository of quotes that came to me in a moment. Here are meanderings over the years on the topic of a comfort zone.

Some of these wound up in published quote books and websites or on t-shirts. Others fell into Twitterverse oblivion.

I hope you find one or two that encourage you to abandon your comfort zone a pursue your bliss.

1) A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.
2) A comfort zone is a starting place, not a staying place.
3) You’ve got nothing to lose except your comfort zone!
4) A comfort zone is where dreams go to die.
5) Your desire to get better must have enough escape velocity to break free from the gravity of your comfort zone.
6) End your comfort zone before it ends your dreams.
7) There is no comfort in the growth zone and no growth in the comfort zone.

8) Comfort zones are expensive. They are rented at the cost of lost dreams.
9) No life was ever transformed from the safety of a comfort zone.
10) Your comfort zone is your prison until you step beyond it.
11) We cannot sit in our comfort zones and demand answers. Answers are for those who dare, who risk, who challenge.
12) Negativity is a comfort zone for many; a hiding place for our smallness.
13) Your best friends are the ones who challenge your comfort zones, not the ones who share them with you.
14) For many people, negative thinking is a comfort zone and a protection against disappointment.
15) There are millions just existing in their comfort zones and convincing themselves they’re happy. Don’t let it be you!

13 Compassion RayQuotes

Compassion is among the most selfless emotions human beings are capable of. Yet, it’s more than a feeling. It’s something we can put into action in our lives and in the world. It’s the concept that reminds us that, despite our many differences, we are all together here in the same situation. We’re having this challenging human experience on a tiny blue marble spinning around in a vast dark universe.

It manifests in kindness, selflessness, empathy. It changes relationships and it changes the world. Equally importantly, compassion begins with yourself. Having compassion for yourself makes it that much easier to have it for others.

Maybe, just maybe, we can treat each other like tight-knit kin we truly are.

By now you know, that I love coining quotes on topics. I call them Rayquotes. Here are my best 13 on the topic of compassion.

  1. Challenge your blindspots and prejudices to a duel of logic and compassion. Would they survive?
  2. Compassion costs so little and spends so well.
  3. If you look around you today, you will see endless opportunities for compassion.
  4. Sharing stretches our compassion muscles. Compassion stretches our hearts.
  5. Compassion and humanity are the silver lining of tragedy.
  6. The only end to humanity’s long river of tears is an ocean of compassion.
  7. When dogma and duty rule your life compassion is the very first casualty.
  8. When we get too focused on bottom lines we tend to forget THE BOTTOM LINE – people. Compassion has a ROI too.
  9. A mind evolved to treat others fairly and compassionately is superior to a politically correct mind that’s coerced to.
  10. Our world can run on fear and hatred or love and compassion. We the people of this planet must choose.
  11. What we need in our world is a pandemic of compassion, self-empowerment, and true transformation. It must start within!
  12. Compassion’s ROI is measured not on bottom lines, but from the bottom of our hearts.
  13. Passion is powerful, but hollow without compassion. The true hero cultivates both.

Have a great Friday!

The Placebo Effect – Words and Beliefs Are Powerful

Happy Wednesday, my friends.

You probably know that the first hurdle every prospective drug must jump is The Placebo Effect. Did you know, though, that it averages about 22 percent?

I’m not surprised is you didn’t. It’s not a number the pharmaceutical industry has a vested of interest in advertising. That means, on average, patients taking a pill, with no known curative affects, get better 22 percent of the time just because they believe they’re taking medicine that will help them.

That’s WITHOUT even trying. Imagine how powerful your mind can be when you focus on an outcome.

It’s not to say that we don’t need medicine or that our thinking alone can heal us. I think it’s powerful tool in your toolkit, though, and one you certainly want working with you and not against you.

Your beliefs and your words have so much power! They can help you be braver, stronger, and more resilient. Here are a few #Rayquotes to add to the magnificent manifester that is your mind.
