“How can I make it to number one?” (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

People are so quick.

To quit.

On just about anything.

That doesn’t happen quickly.


That’s not how it works.

It takes time and effort.

For one.

It takes a whole lot of dedication.



Balls, major ones👈👈👈



Mostly mental.

A sh*t-load of ‘I’m not giving up no matter tf’.


This sh*t is not easy👈👈👈

That’s why you have to:

How can I get to the top?

Here’s another thing.

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.

That’s why you have to ask yourself:

How can I get to the top?

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 anything else my clients need assistance with.

That’s why you ask:

How can I get to the top?

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 my sheer determination to learn social media.

So that I could get my business name out there.

And after I got so good at it.

Other people asked me if could help them with theirs?

Like I said.

It just kind of happened!

That’s how business works.

You have to be open to things.

That’s why you ask:

How can I get to the top?

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.

Failure is part of success.

Remember that👈👈👈

And that is why I say.

Don’t give up!

Even on the days when it feels like nothing is happening.

Because it is.

You just can’t see it yet!

That’s why you ask:

How can I get to the top?

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 why you ask:

How can I get to the top?

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!

What about that?

How is any of that going to happen if I give up?

So I say again:

That’s why you ask:

How can I get to the top?

It’s been a long time since I’ve thought of giving up.

And I hope if you are reading this.

You don’t give up!

On whatever it is you are trying to do👈👈👈

Maybe you are trying to get a new job?

Start a new business?

Buy a house?

Find a new love?

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.

With the ideas, people and resources that will come to you.

It’s like The Universe heard you.

And she’s sending help!

That’s why you ask:

How can I get to the top?

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?














That’s truly why you ask:

How can I get to the top?

Give yourself the option.

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 way 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% IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

And no one wants that.

That’s why you ask:

How can I get to the top?


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…


And most.

Make sure you ask:

How can I make it to number one?
