|Patricia D. Bokowski, don’t you marvel at nature? |
I do, but then I’m partial.
It holds so many clues about living the life of your dreams, don’t you think?
For instance, have you ever seen a mama duck waiting around for her ducklings to line up before crossing the street?
Never. Because she knows that the only way her ducklings are ever going to line up is if she just goes!
Just one of your ducklings,

The other day my Iphone told me my storage was full and that I needed to delete some of my over 5,000+ pictures.🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
So, I decided to take the time and actually go through my phone and delete some pictures, which I hate!
In the process, I came along some great quotes that I had saved.
So, I thought I’d share them with you today.
Some of them are actually very timely👌👌👌
Am I the only one feeling this way these days 😐
Something about living through #quarantine2020 will do that to a person!
This was made for me by Tai Vicari about six years ago or so👉👉👉
I forgot all about it!
How fabulous is that?
And she nailed it🎯🎯🎯
Am I the only person who has been sitting at their desk since March?
Last week I decided I needed to start exercising again (God I miss the gym so much), but at this point, who knows when they will open up?
Anyway, thought I would share some of the exercises I found helpful👈👈👈

MORAL: Don’t believe everything you see on the internet!
No one is showing you the bad stuff, and trust me, there’s BAD out there!
In these trying times, you need to get creative😁😁😁
What can you do in your business that’s a little out-of-the-box creative?
Maybe you can open a Pinterest account if you don’t have one already?
Do you have an Instagram account?
Is your business on Google?
Have a placed a post up recently?
Are you a blogger in the making?
If not currently, now is the time to start👈👈👈
As for me, I’m going to be doing some new videos this week for my Channel.
Even though I need a haircut desperately and I need to get my nails done.
But, I’m going to do it anyway.
It won’t be ‘perfect’, but it will be genuine!

I love that!
Here’s a little something I wanted to share with you today!
It’s called “The Story of the Chinese Bamboo Tree” by Benny Hsu 👈👈👈
When you start to make positive changes in your life, it is not easy. You want results right away. When you don’t, you easily want to give up.
I like the story of the Chinese bamboo tree: You take a little seed, plant it, water it, and fertilize it for a whole year, and nothing happens.
The second year you water it and fertilize it, and nothing happens.
The third year you water it and fertilize it, and nothing happens. How discouraging this becomes!
The fifth year you continue to water and fertilize the seed and then—take note. Sometime during the fifth year, the Chinese bamboo tree sprouts and grows NINETY FEET IN SIX WEEKS!
Life is much akin to the growing process of the Chinese bamboo tree.
It is often discouraging. We seemingly do things right, and nothing happens. But for those who do things right and are not discouraged, things will happen.
It might take years, but if you are persistent enough, you might have “overnight success” that others will see. But in your heart, you know the results came from doing the right things over a long period of time.
The situation you are in right now is the result of the seeds that you planed 5 years ago. Are you getting the results you want? If not, begin today to sow the seeds of what you want 5 years from now.
Remember, if you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll get the results you’ve always gotten.
Get busy living!
Life lessons learned the hard way!☝☝☝
Sometimes you just have to take a deep breath and jump in and do it!
I’ve told this story before, when I went to my very first networking event, (when I just started my business back in 2012), I literally had to convince myself to go in.
I told myself I just had to talk to one person and get their card.
I remember walking into that room and not knowing anyone.
And I was prepared to leave immediately.
But then I remembered my promise to myself.
So I found a lady who seemed to be quite popular among the room.
I hung around her table until she finally talked to me.
She waited until everyone was gone from the table, looked at me and said “Ok, pretty lady, what do you do?”
Of course, I chatted away at who I was and my business.
She was so sweet, she introduced me to just about everyone in the room.
And THAT is how I got introduced to networking!👈👈👈
She told everyone in that room to invite me to all their networking events, and they did!
Take the LEAP!
Another good one!
That’s a wrap!
And hopefully, we all get to see each other soon <3
Patricia <3 always
