“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, that’s all I’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!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Subjects that I often write about:

Pursuing your dreams.πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰

How to be amazing.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

How to have a happy day.πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰

How to make a great first impression.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

How to have amazing self-confidence.πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰

And today’s topic, Keep PushingπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

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 pushingπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘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.πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

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 PlannerπŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

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.🎯🎯🎯

I was gathering all this information, and not even realizing it.πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

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.🌈🌈🌈

This is probably about 15 years old. Notice how I highlighted the last passageπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ
Kermit the Frog🐸🐸🐸

So you have to ask yourself.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Are you working every day pursuing your dreams?

That’s the topic of today’s blog, Keep PushingπŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

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 itπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘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 thoughts☹☹☹

BIG mistake!!!πŸ–πŸ–πŸ–

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

Things from like HOW I should format itπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

What font I was usingπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

To the meaning of the blogπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

All of a sudden it hit me like a ton of breaks.πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

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, greatπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

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 anymore☝☝☝

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

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!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Pursuing your dreams isn’t easy.

And it’s not for everyone for sureπŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘

But you’re not ‘everyone’ are you?

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

Remember this, keep pursuing those dreams of yours like a duck on waterπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Just do it.

I believe in you!
