“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – Kermit the Frog
That’s a question more people should be asking themselves!
From where I’m sitting.
There’s a lot of people.
Going no where ‘fast’.
Seems a lot of folks.
Are waiting for some magical sign.
To tell them ‘now’ is the time!
The time to do ‘whatever it is they’ve been wanting to do’.
That’s just my opinion.
Maybe if they did they thing.
They really want to do.
They would find their happiness!
I don’t know how many bloggers I’ve spoken with over the years.
Who have told me it takes them a long time to publish a blog.
Why you might ask?
Because they refuse to hit the PUBLISH button.👈👈👈
They want another day to edit their blog.
Obsess over it.
Make sure it’s absolutely perfect (no such thing).
And then they wonder why they aren’t getting great results?
Same goes for people who post on social media.
They hem and haw over each post.
And in the end.
By the time they actually put up the post.
It’s not very good anyway.
I don’t want to get off topic here.
But, people, you really need to up your social media game.
Everyday, I see posts with:
Way too many words.
Make no f*cking sense.
You get where I’m going.
Posts that having nothing to do with nothing.👈👈👈
What should we do?
Life isn’t perfect.
You make it as good as it can be.
And go from there👈👈👈
It is a constant struggle.
Only, far too many people refuse to do that.
Instead, they stay stuck.
Stuck in whatever happened in their life.
So, there is no telling these people to make it work.
They have already given up.
Not me though.
I work at it everyday!👈👈👈
As I like to tell people, I’m totally winging it everyday!
The definition of insanity.
Is doing the same thing every day.
And expecting different results.
Yet, that’s what so many people do!
That’s why you have to get out of your comfort zone.
And do something different.
Recently, I started making videos on Pinterest.
Talk about coming out of my comfort zone!
But, I’m doing it.
I actually did a video the other day.
And forgot to turn on the microphone.
But I posted it anyway.
Because, I wasn’t sure if it was me.
Or the app?
So, I was like, what the hell.
And see what happens.
And guess what?
The video did really well.
AND THAT WAS WITH NO SOUND👈👈👈
So, like I say.
Practice makes perfect!
Actually, practice makes you better, not perfect!
So when people ask me: “Patti, what should I do?”
I say, whatever it is the keeps you up at night.
“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get that you’ve always got.”
How many opportunities.
Do you think there are on any given day?
My answer: I believe there is an abundance of opportunities on any given day!
The thing is.
You have to be open to receiving them.
Which, I believe most people don’t.
So I ask, are you looking?
And not just with your eyes.
But with your mind, heart and body.
There are times.
When some people.
Are so focused on what others are doing.
That they don’t see the opportunities right in front of them!
I think the best opportunities.
Are the ones we make ourselves.
Like making videos on Pinterest.
Next will be YouTube videos.
You don’t have to make one huge jump.
Just a little at a time.
Don’t be afraid to come out of your comfort zone!
I promise you.
It’s not as scary as you think!
Here’s something else I want you to think about.
Say, if by chance.
Someone you know, gets a golden opportunity.
Don’t be bitter, resentful, jealous or sad.
Be Happy for them ;-)👈👈👈
Because when you are happy for them.
You are sending out positive energy.
Into the Universe.
And that will come back to you ten-fold!
Want to increase your confidence?
Of course you do.
So, (and this is easy).
On a daily basis.
And I know that’s easier said then done some days.
TRY and put out as much positive energy as you can.
Because, just like everything else you put out.
Everything comes back to you!
The more positive energy you put out.
The more that will come back to you.
It’s just like money.
Every dollar you put out.
Comes back to you ten-fold.
Remember: Mind > Matter!
Recently I read a little something on Oprah’s Instagram page, it went like this:
‘I am smart. I am blessed. I can do anything!”
You should be saying that to yourself a hundred times a day!
Now I say it to myself everyday!
Whenever I start feeling anxious or overwhelmed.
If life has shown me anything, it’s anything is possible.
Opportunities really are all around us.
Think, now is the time to shift your thinking.
Anything is possible.
Align your thoughts.
Next, align your thinking.👈👈👈
Now take action!
And as you start thinking differently.
You will see the world through different eyes.
Life really does become limitless.
When your mind is set in the direction.
That “I can do anything” mindset.
Speaking of which.
I’m writing a book.
Anticipated release date: 10.31.2021.
Stay tuned for further details.
