“Where do I start?” (4.27.2020)

It doesn’t matter that the road’s been rough, that you now have challenges, or that uncertainties loom on the horizon, Patricia Bokowski.

None of this changes the fact that for every thought you think today, worlds will come tumbling into existence. For every word you speak, legions will be called into action. And for every step you take, matter will be drawn from the ether.

Jeez –

Where do I start?

Ah, the age-old question.

This is a subject I have written about many times.

And the reason why is?

Because so many trip up on it.

They say they are are going to start.

Only they don’t.

And then they wonder why?

They keep tripping themselves up?

Listen when I tell you.

I know it’s not easy.

I know it’s scary.

I know you feel you aren’t ready.

I know you’re suffering from imposter syndrome.

But you got this!

Trust me.

You just have to do it!

Whatever your ‘it’ is

For me, it was starting my business.

I felt totally clueless.

But guess what?

I did it anyway!

And you can too!

Big announcement! I recently opened a shop on Amazon.

Many of my clients are still not comfortable going out shopping.

So, I decided to bring shopping to them.

Sharing many of my favorites.

Take a look: https://www.amazon.com/shop/ninefrogs

Full disclosure, I receive a commission on any sales through the link.

New items added daily.

Thank you!

Thus, wondering.

Why we never reach our goals.

And yet.

At the same time.


How can I fix this?

You want the quick answer?

Just do ‘it”.

Whatever your ‘it’ is!

And, super important here.

Give yourself permission to succeed!

Where most people get it wrong.

That is 100% true!

There you sit.

Doubting yourself.

Every day.

While others.

Are afraid of your potential!

Please stop.

And don’t do that! 

Stop thinking so much.

Trust me! 

The minute you start doubting yourself.

You rob yourself of the magic of the moment.

And the ‘magic’ is the best partπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

So get out there!

And out of your comfort zone.


If you have to.

Push yourself to do this ‘thing’.

Whatever that thing is for you!

And, once you’ve done that ‘thing’.

Just wait.


And see what The Universe has in store for you!

But, and this is a big but.

You will never know.

Unless you actually DO THE THING🎯🎯🎯

So, if you are asking yourself this question:

Where do I start?

The answer is simple.

Start at the beginning!

Here’s some free advice.

One of the first thing.

You can do for yourself.

Is, STOP listening to other people.



‘Other’ people will most likely tell you.

That you absolutely cannot do it.

Again, whatever that thing is.

That you want to doπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

That, is HOW you give your power away.

While also simultaneously.

Feeding your brain.

More reasons why it won’t work.

Remember, your brain.

Is listening to everything you say.

So if you say to it.

Mmmmmmm, I don’t think I can do this?

Your brain will respond back.

You are right!

You can’t do this!

And will promptly give you a hundred.

Reasons why you can’t do it.

It’s commonly known as:

Self-sabotage #101

Self-servicing prophesy.

So I am asking you nicely.

Please don’t do it!


Do not tell other people.

And I don’t care who they are.

What you want to do!

As in most cases.

They will invariably tell you why you can’t!


Why it won’t work.


Why are you even going to try?

My experience has been.

Do it first.

Then let them know!

Look. I know they mean well.

It’s just.

They aren’t YOU.

They don’t have YOUR dreams.

YOUR passion.


YOUR desires.

I cannot stress this enough!

You have so much potentialπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Do you ever think about that?

Most people barely use an ounce of their potential.


Because they keep telling themselves.

They don’t have any!

Think about it!

How many times.

Did you want to do something.

Only to talk yourself out of it?

For whatever reason?

Stop doing that!


Trust me when I tell you.

You literally.

Just need to jump in with two feet!

And just do it.

Like pulling a bandaid off.

One big rip!

I’ve talked about this before.

When I first started my business in 2012.

I had NO IDEA what I was doing.

So of course.

And as a result.

I had so many people telling me.

What I should or shouldn’t do.

I was so overwhelmed.☹☹☹

Who was right and who was wrong?

And, who’s advice should I take?

Needless to say.

It was a very confusing time for me.

And looking back.

I totally blame myself.

For talking to so many people.

About my business.

See what I just said?

MY business!

Not theirs.

Take it from me.

Keep your problems to yourself.

When it comes to your business.

I’ve learned over the years.

I literally have like three people.

That I go to when I have a problem.

With my business.

Or a new idea I want to bounce off of someone.

That’s it.

Three people.

My very first tattoo, The Lotus Flower and OHM Symbol

Ask me how many people.

Did I tell that I was going to get my first tattoo?


So if you thought ZERO.

You would be right!

I told NO ONE I was getting a tattoo.


I knew EXACTLY what they would say:



You’re not a kid.

What about your business?

Really? A tattoo?

But guess what?

I did it anyway.

And I did it three more times after that.

This is my third tatto!

And soon.

I will be getting.

Another one.

My fifth.

And guess what?

I won’t be telling anyone.

About that ahead of time.

I’m just going to do it.

And then post a picture of it.

On FaceBook.

Because it’s my choice.

That’s what I’m talking about!

What matters is what you do from here!

I once read.

That when you’re going after your dreams.

You need to be selfish with yourself and your time.

And they were right.

That’s me these days.

Selfish with both my time and energy.

As I only have so much.

To give on a daily basis.

That’s truly what it boils down to.

In this ‘game of business’.

So, remember to keep asking yourself.

On a daily basis.

Is this important?

Have you ever heard the phrase:

“It’s better to ask for forgiveness than permission”?

Sometimes you just need to ‘go for it’.

How else are you going.

To find ‘what you’re made of’?

To see how far you can go?

You need to experiment?

Try new things?

Take risks?

I mean.

No one is asking you to jump out of an airplane.

There are plenty of risks.

You can take on the ground.

Just yesterday, on a whim.

I put up a new video on TikTok.

And, in case you have been living under a rock.

Video is the way these days.


If you haven’t done so, so far.

Try it!


At the end of the day.

When you think about it?

No matter what it is you want to do.

YOU NEED to do something different.

Whether you are a career person.


A business owner.

You need to mix it up.

And try different things.


If you keep doing the same thing.

You are going to keep getting the same results πŸ™

And no one wants that!

So let me ask you?

What’s that one thing?

You know?

That idea you’ve had rattling.

Around in your head?

Only, you have come up with.

A hundred reasons.

WHY it won’t work?πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Or, that you can’t do it!

Now, stop!

Reverse your thinking!

Think:  What one thing can I do today to make that “thing” a reality?

It literally can be anything!

And, there’s no right or wrong answer.

It’s just, you have to start.

Like, baby steps.

But, you have to take at least one.

Each of us is born with so much potentialπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Use it!

Every delicious morsel of it.

Don’t let a day go by without doing something special.

Look at the people around you?

Or. NineFrogs Daily β€œQUOTE OF THE DAY!”:
