“How can I be the best?” (10.18.17)

Patricia Bokowski, if at first you don’t succeed,

it only means you’re getting closer, cooler,

hotter, better, “badder,” and more awesome.

Patricia Bokowski, choose to see it this way.

Choose to see everything this way. You’re quite the crazy cat, dude.

“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs

How can I be the best?

These days.

People are so quick.

To quit.

On just about anything.

That doesn’t happen quickly.👈👈👈


That’s not how it usually works.

It takes time and effort.

For one.

And it takes.

A whole lot of dedication.



B*lls, major ones👈👈👈



A can-do mindset.

A sh*t-load of:

“I’m not giving up no matter tf.”


This sh*t is not easy👈👈👈

That’s why mindset.

Is so important.


I am number one!

Here’s another thing.

About the entire process.

You never run out of things to do.










I could sit at my desk 24/7.

And never run out of things to do.

And I’m not talking ‘busy’ work.

I am talking ‘things to do’.


That is the nature of ‘my’ business.

To be honest.

I’ve never met an entrepreneur.

Who isn’t always saying:

“I have more things to do, than time to do them.”

That’s a fact!

I wear many hats.

In my NineFrogs business:

Image Consultant – helping my clients both look AND feel good about themselves.

Fashion/LifeStyle Blogger – writing blogs.

Personal Valet – putting outfits together for my clients.

Personal Shopper – shopping with my clients. Either with them or I shop for them.

Content creator – this alone is a 24/7 job!

Social Media Consultant – working with my clients to improve their social media.

And, these days.

I’m doing videos as well!

So again.

That’s why I have to keep telling myself:

I am number one!

Remember, it’s a mindset!

And a good one to have!

If you have a lot.

To accomplish every day!

People often ask me.

Why do I do so many different things?

And the answer is simple.

It just kind of worked out that way.👈👈👈

That’s the thing about business.

If you do it right.

It grows.


If anyone told me eight years ago.

I would be a Social Media Consultant.

I would have said, ‘what’s that’?


I had no idea back then.

That that was even a thing!

It was only through my sheer determination.

To learn how social media worked.

And then I got really good at it.

Then one day.

A business owner I knew.

Asked if I could help them.

With their social media?

And then another?

Like I said.

It just kind of happened!

That’s how business works.

You have to be open to things.

That’s how you GROW!

I’ve written about this before.

I have tried many new things over the years.

Some have turned out great.





And that’s ok!

How else are you going.

To figure out what works?

Trial and error folks.


Failure is part of success.

You will never know.

What you are really good at.

Unless you try! 👈👈👈

And that is why I say.


Don’t give up!

Even on the days.

When it feels like nothing is happening.

Or, should I say:

Especially, on the days.

When it feels like nothing.

Is happening.

Because it is.👈👈👈

It’s all part of the process.

The problem is.

Too many people quit.

Because, they think nothing is happening.

When in actuality.

It is happening.

You can’t just see it yet.


That’s why I keep saying:

Don’t give up!

When you are creating.

‘something’ from absolutely nothing.

It takes a LOT of work.


A LOT👈👈👈

When you are creating something from nothing.

It’s like birthing a baby.

A baby takes nine months to make.

A business might take nine years.

Or longer.

And see.

That’s where people give up.

Taking too long.

Too hard.

No money.

Or very little coming in.

(yeah, this one is a given).


Losing people.

Relationships go south.

You name it!

That is when you ask:

How can I do this?


Hang on!

Figure it out.

Be creative.

Sell sh*t on Ebay.

You name it!

I’m not going to lie.

And say I’ve never thought about quitting.

Throwing in the proverbial towel.

And call it a day.

Go back.

And get a M-F 9-5 job.

It would be so much easier.

Trust me.

And then I think about?


I would think.

What might have been?

How close was I?

What would I say to all the people.

That I’ve been telling all these years not to give up👈👈👈

Things like:

I never wrote that book I was going to write!

I never got to travel the world spreading my word!

I never got to be an International Motivational Speaker!

And, all the other things I want to accomplish?

What about that?

How is any of that.

Going to happen if I give up?

So I say again:

It’s all about mindset.




How can I be the best?

Patricia D. Bokowski – CEO & Founder – NineFrogs

Like I said.

It’s been a long, long time.

Since I’ve thought of giving up.

And I hope if you are reading this.

You don’t give up either.

Whatever it is you are trying to do?

Maybe you are trying to move to a new town?

Start a new business?

Buy a house?

Find a new love?

Go back to school?

Whatever it is👈👈👈

Trust me!

Do Not Give Up👈👈👈

I don’t care how bleak the chances look.

You keep at it.


In whatever way you can.

With whatever resources you have.


You would be amazed.

How many resources you actually have.

You just don’t see it.

So, keep it it.

And the ideas will come.

And just like that.

The Universe will hear you.

And she’ll send help!

Trust me on that one!

Here’s the thing.

And I am sure you have heard this before.

You don’t change the goal.

If it’s not working.

You change the plan.

Do you know how many times.

I have changed my plan over the years?


But, I just keep trying new things.

That’s the only way.

You will ever find out.

What’s meant for you!

Some things work.

Some things don’t.

And sometimes.

Something that worked yesterday.

Doesn’t work today.

It is a constant process.

With many moving pieces.

And you are the one.

In charge of keeping track.

Of all the pieces.

Here’s a golden nugget of wisdom.

Give yourself the option.

Of NOT knowing.

How it’s going to happen.

Don’t be so narrow-minded.

That it can only happen ‘one’ way.

It can actually happen a million and half.

Different ways!

And none of us knows which one it will be.

And that’s why you can’t give up.


I will tell you this.

If you give up.

I can guarantee you 100%.


And no one wants that!


Dig in your heels.

Pick up your sword.

And tell yourself.

Come hell or highwater.


No matter what!

No matter who!

No matter how!

As they say in Apollo 13;

“Failure is NOT an option!”👈👈👈

Keep pitching!

Keep growing!

Keep thinking!

And mostly…
