“Sign me up!” (4.18.19)


Through you, through you, through you, Patricia Bokowski… 
The magic works through you. Not beside you. Not around you. Not for you. Not despite you. But through you!

You have to go there. You have to choose your stage. You have to do your dance. Putting yourself in place, to any degree that you can, even if it scares you, even when it’s “hard,” even if it’s just your big toe. Stretch yourself, scoff at the odds, get the ball rolling so that the magic can then come alive and sweep you off your feet with its infinite grace and glory.

You wouldn’t just carry around the seeds for the garden of your dreams in your pocket, all the while asking where your flowers were? Nope, you’d have to brave the elements, you’d have to choose the location, and then you’d have to go there.

Your life is your wand (or hoe),   The Universe / Sign me up!

Sign me up!

Sign me up for success!

You did not wake up today to be mediocre!

That to be is what being an entrepreneur is all about!

Being an entrepreneur means you’d rather work 80 hours for $1.00 for yourself than 40 hours for $1,000.00 for someone else.

That is the sign of a true entrepreneur. 👈👈👈

The lottery people tell us you have to “be in it to win it.”

Same goes for being an entrepreneur.

You have to be ALL in it to WIN it!

And you better be sure you are in it with both feet, dug deep.

THEY say, “opportunity dances with those who are already on the dance floor.”

I agree.

Stay in the game, even on the days you feel like you are getting no where.

Like when I started blogging.

Just the other day I was having a conversation with a couple of my networking friends, recalling how when I first started blogging, I felt like I was blogging to a giant black hole.

That nobody was reading my blogs.

But that didn’t stop me from blogging.

I kept at it, religiously.

And now, I am happy to say I have a growing audience of people who read my blogs on a daily basis.

Is it easy to keep going when you feel like it is fruitless?


You keep doing it anyway!

And last month I started on TikTok.

And in January I started my YouTube Channel.

Is it easy growing these?

Not at all.

But, it wasn’t easy getting to over 400,000+ followers around the globe with all my social media.


Everyone starts at one. ☝☝☝

Kermit the Frog🐸🐸🐸

As I like to remind people, often, everyone starts at zero.👈👈👈

There is little use sitting on your couch, looking at your dream board, hoping and wishing your dream(s) will come true if that’s all you’re going to do.

You need to take action everyday, as much as possible, to every extent you can.

Taking action on a daily basis towards your dream.

And, be like the rest of us working on our dream; getting slammed, rejected, told no and side-lined pretty much on a daily basis.

Remember, success can’t reach you if you aren’t in the game!

I repeat that statement often.


Let me tell you this.

Behind the scenes it is working.

You just can’t see it.

That’s how The Universe works.

You’re taking baby steps.

The Universe is taking giant steps.

Just keep remembering, YOU ARE THE MAGIC!


Here’s the thing.

And this is REALLY super important.


As Michael Jordan has stated:

You stay in the game because you want to win!

It’s so easy to quit. https://www.ninefrogs.com

I personally know many people who threw in the towel when the “going got tough”.

As it does.

Reaching true success is anything but easy!

As Tom Hank’s says:

That’s right, if it were easy, everyone would do it.

And they don’t, do they?

But, guess what?

You are NOT one of them.

You are YOU.

And you so have what it takes to do whatever it is you WANT.




Not smart enough.



Need more time.


No money.

Those are just excuses.

If you have a vision, backed with guts and determination, you are half-way there!

AND, here’s another BIG one!

You believe in you!

I can’t tell you when success will find you.👈👈👈

But I can tell you when it won’t.

When you decided the game was too hard and quit!

The secret to success is failing and then failing again even harder.

I have personally fallen more times than I can count.

And yet, here I am, still in the game.

Still succeeding.

Baby steps and baby gains.

And I take everyone I can get, and relish it.

Stay in the game and play to win!
