|Okay, Patricia Bokowski, here’s the skinny. The answer to your question. The way, the light, the door. The most overlooked truth in reality. And the one that requires the most “uncommon sense” to fully grasp:|
When it comes to effecting change (big or little, but especially big), manifesting the life of your dreams, or getting that perfect parking space, “thinking” is immeasurably more valuable when used to imagine what you want — the end result — than to figure out how you’re going to get it.
Which is why most people have to schlep through big parking lots.

Normally, I would have waited till Monday to send this kind of blog.🎯🎯🎯
You know, that whole #mondaymotivation kind of deal.💪💪💪
Only, these days, every day is Monday.
And every other day is Sunday.
Or Friday, your pick, as it doesn’t even matter anymore 😩😩😩
Welcome to the ongoing, epic story of #pandemic2020 😷😷😷
Opportunity dances with those already on the dance floor👈👈👈
Notice, already ON the dance floor!☝☝☝
Not, getting ready.
Or, working on it.
Maybe someday when I finish it?
Check. Check. Check.✔✔✔
That’s why they say “opportunity dances with those who are already on the dance floor.”
Because you have to be ON the actual dance floor, even in the middle of #quarantine2020
Or, to put it another way, as the lottery people love to say: “You have to be in it to win it”.😎😎😎
Either way, you get the idea!
You need to be “in the game” in order to win and achieve success.🎯🎯🎯
Sitting on the sidelines wishing, hoping and praying your dreams will come true is a complete waste of time!
Instead, get out and start hustling, that’s where the magic starts happening
It’s a leap of faith for sure.🐸🐸🐸
And, it’s not for everyone!
But, for most of us, you need to be IN THE GAME; getting slammed, dunked, rejected and sidelined, pretty much on a daily basis, in order to reach success!👈👈👈
NOTE: remember, success can’t reach you if you aren’t in the game to win!💪💪💪
Now, I am no sports enthusiast!
By any stretch of the imagination!
But I do know enough about professional players, to know that in order for them to gain the success that they have achieved, they had to have practiced till they bled, and then some.😥😥😥
And yet, they kept getting back up and doing it over again.🏃♀️🏃♀️🏃♀️
That’s what it’s like on the dancefloor.
You get knocked down. You get back up. Just make sure you #staythefhome these days while doing it!

It’s not easy to stay in the game.😑😑😑
That’s why so many quit!
Only, you owe it to yourself to stay in the game.👈👈👈
Otherwise, you will NEVER know what you are made of.
True fact, we are ALL born with so much potential, and yet so many of us die using only a tiny percentage of it!😢😢😢
Too many, the minute it starts to get hard, they bail.
And I can tell you right now, it is HARD.
It’s really freaking hard.https://www.ninefrogs.com
But, nothing great ever came from easy 😞😞😞
It is the hard that makes it worthwhile.☝☝☝
So, even if you feel like you are losing today, stick with it, because eventually you will start to win.👊👊👊
Even if they are just little wins.
In other words, little wins eventually become big wins.
You just have to have the resilience to stick with it!https://www.ninefrogs.com
Just make sure you celebrate every win, big or little!
Because even little wins start adding up 👈👈👈
As a follow-up to my recent Pinterest story, I wrote about how my account used to have 10 million monthly viewers, only to go down to 2.1 million monthly viewers due to Pinterest blocking me (that’s a whole other story).
I am now back to 10 million monthly viewers.
Ask me how I did it?
It’s a daily process: Wash + Rinse = Repeat 👈👈👈
So basically I went from 10 million monthly viewers to about 2.1 million monthly viewers over a year’s period!
I can’t tell you how bad that hurt my numbers!
Now, I could have just said, the hell with it, and moved onto something else.
But, that’s not how I work.🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️
And, this is an important part of my business.👈👈👈
The whole cog in the wheel kind of thing!
So, I buckled up and figured out HOW to not only get my numbers back up, but, to do so even better than I did it the first time ☝☝☝
Is it taking a lot of my time and energy?
Is it worth it?
You better believe it👈👈👈
The moral of the story, don’t give up!
On a side note: I have been getting quite a few people asking me about Pinterest #marketing. I guess with everyone being stuck at home during #quarantinelife, they are looking for better ways to market their businesses.
If this is something you are interested in learning more about, leave me a comment and if enough people are interested, I’ll do a video on my YouTube channel this week!
Somebody told me years ago, when I first started my business, that it was a lonely game!
I don’t think I quite got it until I really got into my business.
He was right!👈👈👈
The road to success can be a long and lonely road!
Stay in the game anyway!
And work at it daily.
That includes weekends and holidays!
I can’t tell you when success will find you.🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️
Although, I can tell you when it won’t👈👈👈
You, sitting there doubting yourself, not getting on the dance floor because you don’t think you’re good enough!
I can pretty much guarantee you a success rate of failure at 100%.
And ain’t nobody got time for that. 😐😐😐
And, should you find yourself doubting whether or not you can do this.
And if it’s all worth it.
It absolutely is.
As I’ve said many, many times.
IF IT WAS EASY, EVERYONE WOULD DO IT!
Yes, I know I said it earlier, but it bares repeating☝☝☝
Where is my next opportunity?
Wherever you make it!

That’s a wrap!
