“It’s not easy being green!” (6.3.16)

Sometimes, Patricia Bokowski, if the direction you’re about to move feels “right” in your head and heart, yet the first few steps look pretty daunting, not fun, and maybe even scary, you should take those first few steps anyway and get ’em over with. 
And I’m not just saying that because watching you in action gives me goose bumps. 
Love you madly,
  The Universe / It’s not easy being green!
Honestly, Patricia Bokowski, I get goose bumps just watching you breathe.

Here is a little something I wanted to share with you all today.

Anyone who knows me, or follow me. 

Knows, I am a huge fan of both Dale Carnegie and Kermit the Frog.  

His book, “How to Win Friends & Influence People”, sits on my desk.

And is a daily source of inspiration and motivation for me.

As for Kermit.

Well, what do I really have to say?

Who doesn’t love him!


If you have never read How to win friends and influence people”. NineFrogs Daily QUOTE OF THE DAY:

I highly recommend you do so!

So today, I am sharing some of my favorite quotes from both of these amazing characters!

Again, if you’ve been reading my blogs over the years.

You know, I’m ALL about the quotes.

They are what help me keep a success mindset.

Very positive.

And, always, extremely focused.


“A man without a smiling face must not open a shop!”

Kermit the Frog

“Your smile is a messenger of your good will.

Kermit the Frog

“Your smile brightens the lives of all who see it.”

Kermit the Frog

“To someone who has seen a dozen people frown,

scowl or turn their faces away,

your smile is like the sun breaking through the clouds.”

Dale Carnegie

Especially when that someone is under pressure from his bosses,

his customers, his teachers or parents or children,

smile can help him realize that all is not hopeless —

that there is joy in the world.

– Dale Carnegie

Kermit the Frog is always telling his friends on Sesame Street that very thing☝☝☝


Kermit wants all of his friends to achieve their absolute best.

So that they too can have a great life like Kermit.

That’s why he’s always cheering them on.

Be like Kermit!

Cheer yourself and those around you on!

That’s what I admire about Dale Carnegie.

He had such a great outlook on life and people.

Principles we still use today.


As I said.

One of my favorite books.

It’s not easy being green!
