That’s the thing about life. 👈👈👈
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!👈👈👈 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.
Year after year.
And nobody has time for that
Trust me, I know👈👈👈
I have been knocked down so many times in my life.
I’ve lost count.But, I ALWAYS get back up👈👈👈
I have realized along the way.
I am bigger than my problems.
That’s the kind of mindset you need to have!
Remember when you were a little kid?
And 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.
And THAT IS WHERE THE PROBLEM lies👈👈👈
Here’s one of my newest favorite quotes:
“Tough times don’t last, tough people do!”
That’s the thing.
You have to actually START!
Stop talking about it.
And just do it!
If you are going through hell, keep going.
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.
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.
So, be the BEST you possible!
And don’t worry about what anyone has to say about it!
Do you boo😇😇😇
Shine like a GD motherfucccr 👈👈👈
And don’t worry about anyone getting mad because you’re shining TOO bright.
That’s their problem, NOT yours👉👉👉
And remember to keep pitching!
Look around, who are you hanging with?
Are the people around you going after their dreams?
Making plans for their future?
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 life👈👈👈
You need to be mapping out where you want to go?
What do you want out of it? “Don’t wait for the path. Create it!” (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 you👈👈👈 #makeithappen
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.🙌🙌🙌
Time and again.
And, you learn along the way.💪💪💪
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.”
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 handle👈👈👈
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.
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.👈👈👈
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 🙂
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!
That’s the kind of gangsta attitude you have to have.
Nothing is bigger than you.
And I mean NOTHING👈👈👈
In order to make your dreams come true/your passion to fruition/whatever it is you are working on.
You will have to work harder than you have ever worked before.
And be smarter about it as well.
Don’t be scared.
You have it in you.
