“One day or day one!” (2.8.17)

A question from your friend The Universe: 
Just how much time do you spend thinking big, Patricia Bokowski?
I mean really, really BIG? 
Good, very good! Because that’s exactly how much of “it” you’re going to get! 
What a coincidence, 
  The Universe / “One day or day one!”

“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs


When people ask me what I do?

I answer: Whatever it takes!


That is not what most people do!

When you start on your path.

To success.

And following your dream.

I’m going to warn you.

There’s a good chance it won’t work.

Now, that doesn’t mean you give up.

It simply means you pivot!

I can’t tell you how many times.

I have pivoted over the years.

But, that’s not what ‘most’ people do.

No, they simply give up!

Don’t be ‘most’ people.

Here’s the thing.

You don’t give up the dream.

You just have to try.

One day or day one!

“Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right’. 

Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools

you may have at your command,

and better tools will be found as you go along.” / George Herbert


If you want different results.

You need to do something different.

Let me repeat that!

If you are looking for different results.

You need to do something different!

And that theory.

Applies to everything in your life.


What can you do today?

To get you one stop closer.

To where you want to be?

One day or day one!


Looking for love (in all the wrong places)?

Only you always go for the same type.

And it gets you nowhere.

And you wonder why?  

Maybe it’s time to go for a new type?  

Always visit the same dating sites? 

How about trying a new one? 

There are a million of them these days.


I have changed my type many times.

Over these past few years. 

Still haven’t found love yet.


I’ve met some interesting people along the way!


Looking for a new job?

And not having much luck?  

Why not try a whole new approach?  

Just start applying to any job.

That sounds like it might be for you!

Too many look at a job description.

And think:

Oh, I don’t have all the requirements?


Don’t make that decision!

Apply anyway!

You never know.

Maybe the recruiter is impressed with your resume.

And thinks you might be a good candidate.

Even if you don’t have all the requirements!

It’s called:

Thinking outside the box!

One day or day one!



Do you have an idea for a business?

Only you keep saying to yourself.

I don’t know how to start?

Here’s my advice.


With whatever you have.

With, whatever you got!

Just start!

With whatever resources you have.

You don’t need money.

What you need is a burning desire.

To make it happen.

One day or day one!

You decide!


The thing is this.

Whenever we have an issue.

Or problem in our lives.

Many people.

Revert to the same way of thinking.

And the same way of doing.

Then expect different results.

You need to rewire your brain.

Start thinking different.

That is key!

One day or day one!



In order to get better results.

You need to think better!

Really, out-of-the-box kind of thinking! 

Even though I hate that reference. 

This is how you grow.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

That’s how you.

Come out of your comfort zone.

I know, scary stuff.

But you have to understand.

That’s how you become unstoppable!

That’s the stuff winners are made of!

And, in case no one has told you lately.

You are a WINNER!

Yes, YOU!

Tough AF MF!

One day or day one!

“If you do what you’ve always done,

you will always get what you’ve always got. 

To get what you never had, you must do what you never did.”



Trust me when I tell you.

You need to come out of your comfort zone!

It is all part of the process.

For me personally.

It has meant doing many “uncomfortable” things. 


Like writing a book.


Making videos on TikTok.


Extremely uncomfortable for me.

But, I’m doing it anyway.

Because, I know doing both.

Will bring me closer.

To where I want to be.

It’s all part.

Of my BIG plan.


Just remember.

Nothing happens overnight.

It’s all the baby steps you take!

Planting seeds.


One day or day one!

Get over your fears.

Here’s one:

Public Speaking.

Not me.

Over the past eight years.

I have given many speeches.

And each one of them.

Has made me extremely uncomfortable.

Yet, I love doing it!

What helped me you ask?

The Dale Carnegie class!

I took years ago.

It truly changed my life.

And this book:

How to win friends and influence people.

If you haven’t read it.

Go to your local library NOW.

And get it.

One day or day one!


After that class.

Public Speaking didn’t seem scary.

Like I said.

I’ve given quite a few speeches.

Since I started my business.

And, I’ve been interviewed numerous times.

Both on radio and for podcasts.

I’m like a pro now πŸ™‚

But see.

You can’t become a pro.

If you don’t start.

That my friends.

Is where .

So many people get wrong.

You have to start.

One day or day one!


When I first started my business.

Everyone told me.

I had to start Networking.

I had never been.

To a networking event in my life. 

There was no need.

I worked in Corporate America.

But, even though I didn’t want to.

I started.


To make it worse.

I had to go by myself.


Ask me if I was out of my comfort zone? 

Like seriously.

I would literally sit in my car.

In the parking lot.

And convince myself to go in. 

Prior to having my own business.

I rarely went anywhere by myself! 

True story.

I always had someone with me.

Now, I had to go solo.

One day or day one!


Life has changed a lot since then.

These days.

If there is an event I want to attend.

I don’t think about it.

I just go.


Two years after I started networking.


Paid ME to network for THEM!

How crazy is that?

Now, if anyone had told me.

That was going to happen.

I would have told them they were crazy.

So, I’m telling you again.

STEP OUT of your comfort zone.

One day or day one!


Look at networking as an adventure.

I mean.

You never know.

Who you are going to meet?

I mean.

I have met some pretty fabulous people.

Over the years.

People I never would have met.

Had I not ventured out!

So, if you have never gone.

To a networking event.

I highly encourage you to do so!

One day or day one! NineFrogs Daily “QUOTE OF THE DAY!”:

Let me remind you again!


And your abilities.

We are so quick to tell ourselves.

We can’t do this or that.

When in actuality.

We can.

So. next time.

You try to do something,

Instead of going left, go right.  

Instead of doing what you usually do.

Try somewhere different.

These days.

I have become the handy-man around the house.

And I amaze myself.

Every time I fix something!

If you had asked me.

Ten years ago that I’d be able.

To do that.

I would have said you were crazy.

That’s what I’m talking about!

One day or day one! 


The definition of Insanity;

Is doing the same thing over and over again.

and expecting different results.” – Albert Einstein

Think about that.

If you do the same thing.

Day after day.

And then wonder.

Why nothing has changed?

Maybe it’s time.

To make a change.

And start something new.

Because you never know.

It might actually work really well.

One day or day one!
