“Keep it positive!” (5.31.15)

Actually, Patricia Bokowski, dreams come from a future dimension where they already exist, and the dreamers of such dreams have future selves who now live there and are oh-so anxious to show you what is truly possible.

One of my favorite topics to blog about is, Keeping a positive mindsetπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

And you might say, ‘Why is that Patti?’

Because, I believe it is fundamentally important in both your personal and professional life!

Think about that!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

It’s just like your image!

Show a poor image and I will guarantee you, that is how you will be treated.😬😬😬

And I don’t just mean HOW you are dressed either.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

It is how you treat people, your body language, eye contact, mannerisms, etc.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Basically, it’s the WHOLE packageπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Think about that date you may have coming up. 😍😍😍 

What are you going to wear?  πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

My guess is your very best to make a good impression.πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

How about an upcoming interview or important business meeting?

So I ask you, are you going to walk into in dressed in your old jeans and t-shirt?

Or, are you wear something that makes you feel great and powerful!

Think red tie for men, women it can be anything from their favorite dress, to heels (that one works for me) to a favorite power suit)❀❀❀

The point is, you want to wear something that serves you, and makes you both feel AND look greatπŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

So let’s take a look at my 9 Tips for a Positive Mindset πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰

Smile – yes, I know, smiling was #1 on my last blog!

Because, it’s so important I had to put it as #1 again on this list.🀩🀩🀩

Let’s be honest, I put smiling in as many blogs as I can because THAT’S how important I think smiling is ;-)☺☺☺

Never underestimate the power of a genuine smile.  😁😁😁

And it needs to be genuine, otherwise it doesn’t count.  πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

And trust me, people can tell.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Your Presentation –  When you look in the mirror before you walk out the door, are you happy with what you see?

Is this the “image” of you that you want to share with the world?πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

What if today you met someone who could change your whole life? 

Is this the image that’s going to do it for you?πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Don’t be one of those people I see walking around in their pj’s! 

Not sure when it became acceptable to walk around in your pj’s and slippers.πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘

Either way, don’t do it because a lot of other people are doing it lately.😩😩😩

Do you boo, you can do it! 

Dress your absolutely BESTβœ…βœ…βœ…

Before you walk out the door, check yourself over in a full length mirror.  From head to toe.πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

Your Image – from head to toe!

Think, do the colors work for you?πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

I mean, I love the color pink, yet I don’t believe I own one piece of pink clothing!

And that’s pink because quite simply, it doesn’t look good on me.πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

I know what colors look good on meπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Just like I know what styles work for me.  πŸ‘—πŸ‘—πŸ‘—πŸ‘—

Are you clothes in good shape or are they missing buttons?

My motto is this, it is better to have five GREAT outfits than ten soso outfits.πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

Seriously, especially if I have an important meeting, or I am meeting someone new, I want to not only look my best I want to FEEL my best as well!

And in order to do that I have to wear one of my FAVE outfits!

Body Language – how do you carry yourself?  

What vibe are you giving off?

Do you carry yourself with pride?πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Is your head up, shoulders back (as we’ve all heard that one from our parents), yet it’s true!πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

Flashing your beautiful smile ;-)πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

Carry yourself giving off a good vibe?Opportunity dances with those already on the dance floor! (5.3.2020

Or, does your body language say, get the Fucz away from me?β€œWhere Attitude is Everything!” (8.19.2020)

I say that because I see many who’s body language says EXACTLY thatπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ 

In my business, I am a big observant of other’s behavior, and body language is a big one!

Make sure your body language is the friendly kind☺☺☺

Walk With Purpose – When you walk, do you walk with conviction or do you just kind of stroll along?  

And yes, there is a difference.

People with power always walk like they have somewhere to go.πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

A few years ago, I took a class with a woman named Dr. Kim.  She was amazing, shared so many great life tips.

One thing that she said stuck with me, actually many things stuck out, but I’m sharing this one now because it goes with the blog.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

She said, ‘always walk like you have somewhere important to get to (even if you don’t)’.πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Same kind of thing when you walk into a room full of people, the energy you bring with you!

Not so much for what you are wearing, more so, for who you are.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Many people call this charisma.

Call it what you want, only in order to make a great first impression, you need to make a statement!

Attitude – “You can’t always have a good day.  But, you can always face a bad day with a great attitude!”

People often tell me that they can “feel” my positive energy when they first meet me😍😍😍

Why is that you might ask?

Well, I believe it is a combination of things:

My beautiful smile ☺☺☺

I dress nicely, even when I’m going to the gym, I make sure I look good!

My hair…seriously! People LOVE my hair, I can’t tell you how many compliments I get on it, and it makes people smile πŸ˜‰

My vibe, which is typically, on a scale of 1-10, about a 9-9 1/2.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

It is that high 24/7?

Absolutely not, but that’s a blog for another day!

Just think, when you meet someone for the first time, you want them to walk away thinking, I really like this person and I want to have a personal/business relationship with them.πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈπŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈπŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

People who do well in sales know this☝☝☝

Mindset – what is your mindset?

When I look back on my days in the corporate world, I realize I was always searching for something bigger than what I was doing.βœ”βœ”βœ”

I always felt this need to discover, learn and soak-up every bit of knowledge I could get my hands on (this was before the internet).

Back in those days, I went to as many seminars as I could (I would plead with my manager saying attending would make me a much better employee, even though the seminar had zero to do with work).πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

This is the front page of my Franklin Planner that I literally have had for years☝☝☝

And those two notes were from a two-day seminar I attended with a man named Coach Joe!

He gave everyone in that class those two notes πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

How special do you everyone in that class felt upon receiving those?

Pretty damn special I can tell you!

December 6, 2010 – I have so many clippings like this in my book.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

So what’s my point of all this?

I have been teaching myself to have the utmost highest mindset I can possibly have, and consistently work at it EVERYDAY of keeping it there, and, getting it higher!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

If you are just letting any little thing get into your head/mind, you can let a lot of crap in there.

Don’t let that happen.😩😩😩

Keep your mind sharp.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

You want a mindset that is not only going to lead you to your dreams, also, be so damn clear that other’s will feel it off of you!

Your Words – What about your words?  

When you meet someone for the first time do you have something nice to say?

Compliments always work when meeting someone for the first time if you can’t think of anything else to say.  

I mean, who doesn’t love a compliment? πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Such as:

Love your shoes!

You have a great smile πŸ˜‰

Wonderful meeting you!

I’ve been looking forward to meeting you.

I knew this was going to be a great day!

You get the ideaπŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—
