“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs
How can I be a winner?
That’s a question.
On many people’s lips these days.
And, what does it take?
I can tell you this.
It takes dedication.
It takes showing up.
Even on the days you don’t feel like it.
It takes courage.
And, lots of determination.
One thing for sure.
If you want to be a winner.
You need to think like a winner.
Mindset is everything!
And, something you work on everyday!
You solve them.
And if you are trying to create something new.
They come with the territory.
Do you know how many problems I have solved over the years?
Things I have had to learn?
I mean, I’m a fashionista.
With an Aviation background?
I never knew a thing about social media?
Or, owning a business.
I just learned it.
That’s a winning mentality!
And, you can do it too!
I’ll be honest with you.
Once I started my own business.
My whole life changed.
For the better.
Despite all the pitfalls.
That come with having your own business.
And there are many.
I have never felt more alive.
Had more zest for life.
And I’ve never been happier!
That’s how it feels.
When you are truly living your dream!
And I know.
I used to live the zombie life.
As I call it!
I used to work that Monday – Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm life.
Lived my life for the weekend.
Slept-walk my way during the week.
So that’s why I can relate.
The Struggle is Real.
Only, not these days!
Want to get motivated?
Find something that sets your soul on fire.
Your reason for getting out of bed!
(and don’t say your paycheck).
or your family!
If that were the case.
Everyone who works would be happy.
And we all know.
For the most part.
That is not true.
It literally has to be the reason.
That you choose to do that thing.
Rather than hitting the couch when you get out of work. 👈👈👈
Start working on your passion.
And watch your life change.
The Struggle is Real!
Trust me, I get it.
I write often about your attitude.
Having a positive attitude is like the number one life-skill.
It’s the thing that will help you reach your potential.
It helps with everything.
Your business life, your personal life, you name it.
So if you are waking up Monday morning.
And dreading the day.
And then the week to follow.
And you are living for Friday?
You need a new mindset.
Or maybe, a new life?
Sometimes you have to tell yourself
“I am a SHARK”
and attack the day!
If you are reading this right now.
And saying to yourself, “ok Patricia, I get it.
So tell me how am I supposed to change my poor attitude?
And do something that sets my soul on fire?”
Which is a tall order by the way.
And, something I help many of my clients with.
And my answer is always the same.
What is it that you love?
For me it was Fashion and Personal Development.
And a strong desire to help people.
It can be anything.
Maybe you want to start a side-gig?
Maybe you want to join the gym and lose 25 pounds?
Maybe you want to go back to college?
Whatever it is that lights you up.
Think: what is it I want to do that will change my life?
Now, do that!
So for those who are saying, “I have no idea what I want to do?”
I’ve compiled a list of a suggestions:
Do you love to cook?
want to learn another language?
are a tech guru?
You get where I am going here?
Start a side business.
Join a gym.
Or some other activity.
That you love.
Or have been wanting to do.
Because you keep telling yourself you don’t have time.
Or, you don’t have the resources.
Or, the money.
If that’s you?
Go back to school.
And get that degree you always wanted.
You get the idea.
Get a sheet of paper.
And start writing down some ideas.
It’s just a list.
Like really get creative.
You would be amazed with what you can come up with!
When I first started my business.
I started as an Image Consultant & Personal Shopper.
And I remember.
People saying to me: “Who’s going to pay you to go shopping?”
And then someone did!
And then another.
And then someone paid me for a consult for Image Consulting.
And then another.
That’s how it happens.
And now look at me ten years later.
That’s all because I have showed up every day.
Every day over ten years.
Tending to my seeds.
And watching them grow!🌱🌱🌱
All great changes are preceded by chaos.
So, when it seems like everything is falling apart.
It’s really The Universe.
Putting everything back together.
The way it was supposed to be!
So if you find yourself in that position.
Go with it.
It’s The Universe’s way of clearing your path.
To where you are actually supposed to be.
Trust me, I know!
Have you heard?

Titled: “How One Landscaping Bill Changed Everything!”
Anticipated release date: Spring/Summer 2022!
