Well, Patricia Bokowski, enlightenment is kind of like flying for the first time without wings.
Of course, there’s the exhilaration, the happiness, and the intoxicating sense of freedom that’s almost indescribable.
But there’s also the subtle shock at what you now see as the inevitability of your accomplishment. The wonderment of how you hadn’t seen this so clearly before, mingled with acceptance. And the dim recognition that it’s part of some distant agreement you once made.
And, at last, as you come to your senses and finally think to gaze below, upon the tiny jewel you’ve called home for so long, you’re struck with a jolt as you see it so magically and effortlessly suspended—floating—in space, and realize, for the first time, that even there you were flying all along.
You soar, The Universe / Know your worth!
“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs
Remember when you were a kid and trying to learn how to ride a bike?
Maybe you were one of those kids who got the knack of it right away (I was not).
Or, maybe it took you like 100 tries until you finally got it (yes, me, I remember it clearly, my poor dad).
Anyway, the point is, you didn’t give up.
Actually, you didn’t even think of giving up!
Like, that wasn’t even an option.👈👈👈
“NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS. The waiting can seem painful, but the regret of not going for it will be even more painful.” / Steven Aitchison
When you are trying to do something that’s never been done before, it is NOT going to be easy.
And it is going to require a lot of patience, determination and resilience on your part.
Even when it seems like nothing is happening, keep at it!
The Universe loves to reward people who don’t give up🙏🙏🙏
BE one of those people👈👈👈
It’s the same working on your goals.
You can’t think there is a plan B.
Only a plan A.https://www.ninefrogs.com
A for absolute👈👈👈
I’ve seen so many people give up.
I’m sure you have too.
And I don’t just mean in business.
I’ve seen far too many people give up on life!
Because it got too hard ;-(
When you’re working on goal or dream, or whatever you want to call it.
And you’re not seeing the results you want, it’s easy to throw in the towel.
Whether you’re trying to lose weight, start a business or meet the love of your life.☝☝☝
It doesn’t matter.
You just work at it one day at a time.
Planting the seeds of optimism everyday.
There are a lot of comfortable spots along your journey.
It’s ok to stop and rest.
Just don’t get too comfortable there.
Otherwise, you just might STOP.
It feels good, it’s easy, you don’t have to work too hard at it, so why not stay you might say to yourself?
And my answer would be because you deserve more.
Actually, you deserve THE VERY BEST🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️
Tough situations can either make or break you.
I myself have been in quite a few tough situations.
Like, really tough.
So tough I really thought a couple of times it would break me.
And this was happening as I was just starting my business.
I remember thinking to myself, either this situation is going to kill me, OR, I can work my way through it.
And that’s exactly what I did.
Sure, there were lot’s of tears.😢😢😢
But I knew in my heart (and head) I’d survive, as tough as the situation was.
What you think, you create!
When I started NineFrogs just about eight years ago, I knew one thing.
I wanted to help people.
And I came up with two services, Image Consulting & Personal Shopping.
That’s how I was going to help people.😍😍😍
Now, over the years my business has changed substantially.
It’s changed how I’ve wanted it to change.
Only now I help a lot more people since my business is mostly on-line!
What you think, you CREATE👈👈👈
That’s actually a quote from Tom Hanks☝☝☝
I heard him doing an interview once, and he said, “if it was easy, everyone would do it.”
And that’s the thing.
Whatever it is you want to do, it’s most like NOT going to be easy👈👈👈
But, that is NOT an excuse to give up!
Expect it to be hard👈👈👈
Expect there to be problems.👈👈👈
Expect that you are most likely going to have to knock on about 100+ doors to get the YES you are looking for. #keepknocking
Just DON’T GIVE UP💪💪💪
I’ve changed my road map many times over the years on my quest for success.
I’m also a big believer in trying different things.
At one point I was selling t-shirts on Amazon through some program that I got picked for.
I spent quite of bit of money on designs and such.
But my heart really wasn’t in it <3
Probably because I not a t-shirt kind of girl!
The point is, it’s ok to try new things, you never know what’s going to stick, and what’s not.
Just don’t give up because something doesn’t work👈👈👈
Success really is just a bunch of success and failures.
And you’ll never know which is which until you try them.
That’s what it all comes down to ☝☝☝
BELIEVING in yourself🤗🤗🤗
Your core belief that you got this!
That YOU, and you alone can do it!
What matters is what you do from here!
So, what are you going to do this week to get you one stop closer to where you want to be?
Think about that☝☝☝
