“How can I shine brighter?” (6.12.19)

Every enlightened master, Patricia Bokowski,

knows that it’s not what you do that brings about a miracle, but that you do something, consistently, with an unwavering expectation that thy will shall be done. 
Because when you do something, with intention, every day, almost anything, in the direction of your dreams, thatโ€™s all Iโ€™ll need to reach you, connect a few dots, and drop a few jaws.
We takin’ over,   The Universe / How can I shine brighter?

“Stop asking people who aren’t going where you’re going for directions.” – NineFrogs Wisdom

Anyone who’s been reading my blogs all these years knows I have a deep passion for Personal Development!๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Subjects that I often write about:

Pursuing your dreams.๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰

How to be amazing.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

How to have a happy day.๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰

How to make a great first impression.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

How to have amazing self-confidence.๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰

And today’s topic, Keep Pushing๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

Keep Pushing on the days when it feels like nothing is happening.

On the days when you don’t feel like it.

When you can think of 100 other things you would rather be doing.

On those days in particular, is when you need to keep pushing๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

I’m one of those people, that if you get me started on this particular topic, or any of the others that I mentioned above, you can’t shut me up!

That’s how passionate I am about it.๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

And oddly enough, I’ve been on this quest for years without even realizing it.


Turns out I’ve been on this quest for years.

It started when I was in my twenties, working for Cablevision.

I was always clipping out quotes, little tid-bits of inspiration, greeting cards, you name it.

And then I would glue them in my Franklin Planner๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡

Anyone remember those?

I received this from “Coach Joe” from a two day seminar I took with him!

Oh, I went to many one or two day seminars as well.

Probably over 30 of them!

All on Personal Development in one way, shape or form.๐ŸŽฏ๐ŸŽฏ๐ŸŽฏ

I was gathering all this information, and not even realizing it.๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

So when I was bringing my plans together for my new business, I knew it had to have something to do with Personal Development.

And of course, fashion.๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ

This is probably about 15 years old. Notice how I highlighted the last passage๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ
Kermit the Frog๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ

So you have to ask yourself.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Are you working every day pursuing your dreams?

That’s the topic of today’s blog, Keep Pushing๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡

Because it’s not always easy.

Actually, it’s usually a lot of hard work.

I have always been Dreaming Big, for years now. That’s how I got the idea for my NineFrogs business, to turn it into an empire!

That said, I wanted to share this nugget of goodness with you today.

I don’t know about you, but it speaks volumes to me:

A lot of people will try to talk you out of pursuing your dream. The world has too many people who are happy to discuss WHY something might not work out, and too few who will cheer you on and say, ‘I’m there for you.’ The more time you spend navel gazing, the longer you give those negative gravitational forces to keep you in their tether…If there is something out there that you want to do…don’t focus on the obstacles.

Don’t ask for permission.

Just dive in!”

John Wood, Founder of Room to Read, In Leaving Microsoft to Change The World

And in the words of Kermit the Frog…

Lesson #1 on entrepreneurship, STOP asking for permission to be successful!

Because trust me, you will rarely receive it๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

When I first started my blog, I thought it would be a nice idea to share my blogs with my family and friends first before publishing them, you know, to get their thoughtsโ˜นโ˜นโ˜น

BIG mistake!!!๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–

They went through my blogs with a fine-toothed comb.

Things from like HOW I should format it๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

What font I was using๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

To the meaning of the blog๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

All of a sudden it hit me like a ton of breaks.๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

That was the absolutely LAST time I would share my blogs with them before I published them.

I wasn’t going to be asking anyone’s advice on my blogs ever again!

If people like my blogs, great๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ

If they don’t, oh well.

But I’m still going to keep writing them.

Only, one thing is for sure, I DO NOT solicit anyone’s opinion anymoreโ˜โ˜โ˜

Remember this: If you want to be great, stop asking for permission!๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–

I consider every single day to be the single most important day in the history of forever, Patricia. So far. 
You, too?    The Universe

OMG, Patricia!! Do you know what today is…??? Right! The single most important day, EVER… so far!

That’s right!

What you think about you is WAY more important than what anyone else things of you!๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Pursuing your dreams isn’t easy.

And it’s not for everyone for sure๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘

But you’re not ‘everyone’ are you?

You’re in it for the long-haul.๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰

Remember this, keep pursuing those dreams of yours like a duck on water๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

Just do it.

I believe in you!
