“Just keep pitching!” (10.28.18)

Patricia Bokowski, you aren’t in time and space to hit home runs.
Couldn’t even if you wanted to. Can’t be done. The logistics are impossible. And besides, the pressure from trying would overwhelm the hardiest of souls. 
Home runs are what I do. You just pitch. 
You want a new job, pitch it to me. You want more friends, pitch it to me. You want to lose weight, improve relationships, or strike it rich, pitch it to me. 
There’s nothing you can throw that I can’t hit clear out of the park. 
  The Universe / Just keep pitching! 
“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions!” – NineFrogs


That’s the thing about life. ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Sometimes you’re so deep in you don’t even know how to get out ;-(

And, as if that wasn’t bad enough.

It knocks you back five spaces in the blink of an eye!๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

You know that feeling?

Here’s the BIGGER problem. 

As I see it.

Far too many people having a hard time getting back up again.

They get knocked down, and instead of getting back up again.

They just stay there.

And nobody has time for that๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Trust me, I know๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ

I have been knocked down so many times in my life, I’ve lost count.

But, I ALWAYS get back up๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ


Just keep pitching!!!

Remember when you were a little kid?

How you were so enthusiastic to just about everything!

Like taking a drive in the car was a big deal.

Getting ice-cream was a really HUGE deal.

We had all these ideas about life, and what were going to do when we got bigger.

And then something happened along.

That enthusiasm eroded away.

Life struck you some blows.

Maybe some MAJOR blows.


Here’s one of my newest favorite quotes:

“Tough times don’t last, tough people do!”

Just keep pitching!

That’s the thing.

You have to actually START!

Stop talking about it.

And just do it!


And keep pitching!

That’s right!

If you are going through hell, keep going.

Don’t stop.

Please, don’t get comfortable there either.

Just do whatever the hell you need to do to get the HELL OUT OF THERE!

And do it, as quickly as possible.

No lingering๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

It’s a bus stop, not a station!

Another thing I see people along the way.

You need to understand what’s a bus stop and what’s a station!

People will treat you in direct proportion of how you let them treat you.

Let them treat you like crap, and that’s how they will continue to treat you!

YOU need to remember how unique you are!

There’s only one you.โ€œHow to have a Happy Day!โ€ (9.30.2020)

Just one.

So, be the BEST you possible!

And don’t worry about what anyone has to say about it!

Do you boo๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡

Shine like a GD motherfucccr ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

And don’t worry about anyone getting mad because you’re shining TOO bright.

That’s their problem, NOT yours๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰

And remember to keep pitching!

That’s right!

Look around, who are you hanging with?

Are the people around you going after their dreams?

Making plans for their future?

Uplifting you?

Or, dragging you down?

That’s a HUGE difference.

If the people around you aren’t supporting you to build a better future, you need NEW people!


I read this in Dale Carnegie’s book ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People.’

YOU need to be enthusiastic about life.

Specifically, YOUR life๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

You need to be mapping out where you want to go?

What do you want out of it? โ€œDonโ€™t wait for the path. Create it!โ€ (8.19.2020)

Don’t just plod along in life, taking whatever life hands you.

I’ve learned the hard way, if there is something you want, you have to be willing to fight for it!

Because, trust me, NO ONE is going to hand it to YOU.

Just remember, what you REALLY want, wants you๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ #makeithappen

Yes, that oneโ˜โ˜โ˜ I’ve written about this before.

If you really want to embrace life…you have to CREATE your own path.


So, if it’s your path, no one can tell YOU what path to take, or, how to get there.

It’s a matter of success and failures.๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ

Time and again.

And, you learn along the way.๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

I have experienced this over the last past few years that I’ve been in business.

It usually goes like this:  “Patti, you know what you should do, you should do XYZ”

Now, when anyone says that to me, I smile, nod my head, and say “yeah, sounds great.”

And move on! When you set out to embrace life, that’s exactly how it feelsโ˜โ˜โ˜

Like you don’t want to waste a second.

You vision for your future is clear.

Now, you may not know exactly HOW you will get there?

And I’ve said this before, don’t worry about the cursed How’s (that line is from Mike Dooley of The Universe).

Mike always says, be busy doing your thing AND don’t worry about the HOW’S.

That’s for The Universe to handle๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

YOU just have to have the vision, and work on it everyday!

Like a crazy AF entrepreneur!

Stop worrying about what other people are doing!

I never do.

Like seriously.

I don’t even know who my competitors are?

Truly, I don’t care what anyone else is doing, or, how they are doing it.

Every morning when I get up, and work on me and my business.

Maybe it’s a day when I’m going to write a blog.

Or make a YouTube video.

Or a couple of TikToks.

Maybe, I have a few phone calls or zoom meetings set-up.

The point is, I’m too busy watering my garden to worry about anyone else’s garden.

All I know is, my garden is getting larger and greener every day.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

That’s what happens when you put all your focus on YOUR garden!

You are allowed to think differently than everyone else around you.

I know I do ๐Ÿ™‚

And that’s ok.

As far as I’m concerned, the most enlightened people do!

I find the way I think is WAY different than most people.

So, I keep it to myself.

The great ones always do!

“Never give up on your dreams.”

They were put in you for a reason.

Your job is to make them come to fruition.

Like Frodo in Lord of The Rings.

He didn’t understand why it HAD to be him.

Same goes for you.

You just have to figure out how to make it happen!
