16 THINGS I LEARNED FROM SNOWBOARDING FOR THE FIRST TIME!!

I realised over the last few days that I am SCARED of doing things I’m not good at and know I can rock.

Have you ever felt that way? Like you’re SO USED to being a freakin’ rock star that you don’t want to risk NOT being one?

Last weekend I went snowboarding for the FIRST.TIME.EVER!! I was SUPER nervous as I am the ‘chick who is always in control’ … which is precisely (humph!) why my friend Rob suggested it would be a REALLY good idea to step outside my comfort zone and make this happen.

Nothing like someone telling you you’re being a pussy to get you motivated and into action … at least for me, that is! It may or may not work for you.

So I set out to hit the slopes, TERRIFIED (let’s be honest), and the long and the short of it?

I FUCKING LOVED IT!

OMG!

Okay so as expected I fell down about 45 million times, and spent the first 20-30 minute literally quaking in my boots and unable to even 10% stand up but then something magical happened:

I decided to stop being scared.

I was sitting on my ass in the snow, having fallen down before even getting up for the 25th or so time, legs trembling and seriously wondering how on EARTH I’d make it ever to the bottom of that slope in one piece and it just hit me:

This time I’m going to get up and not be scared.

And I did.

And then I coasted down the mountain like a freakin’ GAZELLE. Thinking about how ELEGANT and GRACEUL and BEAUTIFUL I must look and imagining all the empowered lessons I was going to share with you from it.

And just so damn PROUD of myself. Not believing how easy it was to suddenly just go with the flow, you know?

So I decided to make a video narrating my journey down the run (stuck the phone down my sports bra) … narrated like a BOSS with poise and wisdom, then realised the freaking phone was pointed at my chest! And I gotta tell you I was FLOATING on that first one Goddamnit!

But the second one was NEARLY as good narration wise PLUS you can see …

Watch it here:https://business.facebook.com/lifeisnow.pressplay/videos/vb.667302269951965/1303818116300374/?type=2&theater

Only problem was of course that in the midst of sharing how empowered and FREE I was I fell over about 40 more times on my ass and got my comeuppance (and BOY did I get it over the course of the next 2 days!) but you know what?

Despite the MANY bruises to my coccyx, head, and ego, this was hands down one of THE best things I’ve done in the last 10 years.

It made me realise how rarely I step outside my comfort zone. I’m so used to being “amazing” and a total gun at everything I do and the truth?

The truth is I’m scared to not be good at something.
I’m scared to get uncomfortable.
I’m scared to look vulnerable.

But also? If THIS sort of empowered feeling of OMFG I did it (even if I then fell on my ass AGAIN!) is the outcome then baby I will get WAY outside my comfort zone every day from here on out, and twice on Sundays!!

Anyway.

On a NOT so side note and the REAL reason I’m writing this post – my instructor Rick really HAS to be one of the best undiscovered motivational speakers out there. Military and cop background, FULL of stories, lives on the mountain and just the best.teaching.style.EVER.

Here are X things I learned from Rick whilst falling on my ass, getting back up again, and eventually learning how to ALMOST stay up for an entire run.

Aka: what I learned having the best freaking experience of my adult life that I can remember in recent history:

PS, just a SMALL side note: this dude is seriously shit.hot.full.of.wisdom. I may even hire him to come in and do something amazing for our community!! I wrote these notes down on my phone straight after getting off the slopes on Day 1, and decided to just leave them as is.

I think you can see the connections to business without me trying to make them for you … okay I will add a few little notes.

1. It’s not that you can’t do it its that you’re hesitating and second guessing, doubting yourself

2. Point / look in the direction you want to go (UM HELLO!!!!)

3. Commit fully: Rick was saying this relevant to staying on my toes or heels as I kept freaking FACE planting (or ass planting lol) and I LOVED the concept of COMMITTING FULLY

4. You had it then you relaxed too much so you fell over- maintain control … I loved this as I know I’ve had so many times where I’ve felt I am OWNING it then I kicked back and then shit fell apart. So, you know – own it but also keep.on.focusing! And stay in control!

5. Just get up and slide – YEP. ’nuff said!

6. Decide not to be scared anymore. I wrote about that before but honestly this seemed MIND BLOWING for me (and still does). When I decided not to be scared anymore – I wasn’t!!

7. It’s not about how it’s about confidence that you CAN.

8. You have to be able to move control balance as you go – NO STAYING STILL AND EXPECTING THINGS TO PROGRESS!

9. It’s like a dance – get into the flow and enjoy it

10. If you’re going too fast pull back – get back to CONTROL, but don’t stop!

11. Don’t stop scared for something that’s nowhere near you or possible to go wrong – there was this one point where I fell over on my butt (for a change) freaking the fuck OUT that I was going to go over the edge. Rick pulled me up and asked me with this really serious earnest face: “where is the edge?” … I looked and, well – there was no edge. Interesting …!

12. You have to unlearn your previous fears and replace them with a new expectation: you need a new default of NOT backing down when you’re scared but instead realising I can stay up. YES YES YES!!

13. Staying up is a choice. Decide to stay up. Make it your default.

14. You don’t have to pull back or stop when things are going well!! (!!) (!!!) (!!!!) (!!!!) (OKAY THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO ME AT ALL!!)

15. Every time you fall down get right back up again (RIGHT UP AGAIN, no pause!)

16. When you’re burning out pay attention step back and rest.

This stuff is all DIRECT from what Rick said to me … I was seriously trying to pull my phone out of my inside pocket every time I fell over and take notes on this shit. In fact (just quietly, as Rick doesn’t know this!!) I recorded the entire 2 hour session on my phone audio on my second morning on the slopes … yep I loved it so much I got straight back into it the next morning. PUSH THROUGH THOSE BRUISES!

I know I’m getting a little carried away with this post, but honestly and as I said to Rick:

This experience was hands down on of THE top experiences of my adult life. It was eye-opening, confronting, and also a little sad to admit how much I’ve held myself back from doing new things because I’m so used to being that in control chick who always.fucking.wins.

So … you have my word for it.

I’m DOWN for trying new shiz! Hit me with your invites and suggestions! But also – try something new for YOU, yes?

And now, I’d love to know: which of the above tips from Rick most spoke to you? And also: HOW MUCH DO YOU WANNA PAY FOR THAT AUDIO ‘CAUSE IT IS PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT GOLD!!

Remember …

Life is Now. Press Play.

MONETIZE THAT SHIT NO MATTER WHAT

{AND DO WHAT YOU WANT ALL DAY}

A One-Time Live Online Workshop with Katrina Ruth, on How to Make Money Anywhere, Anytime, With ZERO Dependance on Any One Platform, Program or Tool … Aka JUST BECAUSE THAT’S WHO YOU ARE … AND – With the Greatest of Ease

Okay. Imma gonna get straight up on your ass about what needs to be said here, because obviously SOMEBODY needs to hit the damn truth button on this shit!!

Straight up from the gate up, you do NOT make money because of Facebook.

Because of Instagram.

Because of email.

Because of ANY of this shit.

You make money because of who you are and what you decide and make NON-NEGOTIABLE, period, The End!

As you may be aware, in the last day or so Facebook and Instagram went down down down OH so far down.

After a few obligatory ‘stop the world!’ messages to my team and friends (which resulted in a serious convo with one of my soul sisters as to whether we’d now have to become porn stars instead), I got back to business.

The business of posting and selling shit on Facebook, which is admittedly a big part of what I do each day???

Nah … the business of being ME, because THAT is what I actually do each day, and also?

It’s what gets me paid.

Funnily enough, as is often the way with these things, just yesterday somebody was making smart-ass comments to me about how all the coaches would survive if there was no Facebook or Instagram.

“How would they survive?”, I asked myself.

“Well, I have no idea how THEY would survive but I sure as shit know how I would survive:

Very fucking well indeed, thank you very much, because that is who I AM”

Word to the wise:

A) I was making serious money long before I used Facebook for it.

Allow me to say it again for those in the back: YOU MAKE MONEY BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE AND THE LEVEL YOU VIBRATE AT.

Vibrate?

It’s an energy thang baby, a frequency shiz niz, it’s just who you ARE and how life works for you.

Handy hint —> the level of wealth you enjoy or moan over now is already just a direct reflection of your frequency, and expectations. It ain’t got jack shit to do with what you do, and it certainly is not a product of which tools are available to you.

It is a product of YOU.

When the socials went down today it was FASCINATING to me to observe the response that came through in the in-between-y bits when people managed to post something.

People worrying about how it would impact their business, or feeling in some way handcuffed.

This is crazy! It’s fear-mongering at its worst and it’s an absolute SHITTY mentality as far as belief systems around where results come from.

Do you know what I felt, when I realised we couldn’t use Facebook as normal for our biz stuff?

EXCITEMENT.

It took a minute to click in, but I found myself getting all wriggly and lit up with excitement.

I love a damn challenge 🙂

And since I also choose to believe that everything is happening FOR me, I also took personal responsibility for this occurrence.

Obviously FB and Insta had gone down in order to force me to finally pull my finger out and learn how to go live on YouTube.

But mainly – hell YEAH to the opportunity to get creative!

Probably taking the whole thing a little bit too far, as I worked my way through some sprints on the rower post HIIT weights session, I started to imagine what would happen if Facebook was TRULY GONE AND NO LONGER OF THIS WORLD.

I got MORE excited with each second that passed (which makes me remember how damn BORED I get as soon as I know how to easily do something aka make money all day err day on Facebook), and I also found myself AUTOMATICALLY GOING INTO ZAG MODE.

Zag?

You know, like ‘When They Zig you Zag’. A classic, if ever there was one!! Thank you Dad, for always having all the BEST books on your bookshelf for me to start reading from 10 or 11 years of age!

See, I have a belief system which works rather well for me and I guess is just part of who I am –

I believe that things ALWAYS work out perfectly for me, and are always done FOR me …

I believe I am always on path …

I believe I always make the right decision, so therefore I never have to beat myself up, I just wait for the lesson –

AND

(drumroll)

I believe that my outcomes are predicated only by my choices, and that there is nothing I EVER need in order to get or maintain or ONLY improve on an existing outcome.

It’s this mindset that causes me to wonder what TF it has to do with anything when people say things like they can’t be in shape ’cause they have kids or just had a kids … or ’cause they can’t get to the gym (for example)

And it’s also this mindset that causes me to KNOW that the money I make and the impact my soul work has in the world has NOTHING to do with what tools or platforms are available to me or working.

I programmed myself a long time ago to IMMEDIATELY swerve if something was no longer serving me or working for me. It’s this part of my mind which therefore right away started coming up with creative and imaginative solutions for how business would OF COURSE carry on (and improve!) with or without social media.

And it’s also this part of my mind which of course right away finds a way to monetize the damn thing and turn it into epic and highly helpful content for you, aka this workshop!

It’s just how I think, and who I am. I am simply unavailable for NOT moving forward, and nothing will ever ever EVER make me believe that I have to depend on anything outside of me for my results.

So why a whole damn workshop on the concept?

Well, it’s more than that, isn’t it?

It’s a mindset of believing that you always get what you want.

It’s a mindset of believing that everything always works out for you.

It’s a mindset of believing that NOTHING can stop you.

That everything is working in your favour.

And?

That you can monetize ANYTHING, any time you choose, and with no ‘requirements’ in order to do so!

I don’t have to tell you that obvs the outcomes you get directly follow and reflect your mindset and your beliefs!!

Here is what else, as well:

This is not just about making money any time, from any thing, and knowing that even with challenge or things going wrong you only THRIVE and EXPAND!!

For me this goes hand in hand with duh – I get to do all of that on my terms.

By having FUN, and being in FLOW, and with ease.

In fact, the more money the more ease!! #justhowitis

That I can literally click my fingers and money shows up for me, meanwhile I’m just over here doing ma thang.

Speaking of which –

I think it’s about time I shared exactly what I currently DO all day, yeah? And how I do it / fit it all in / honour ALL the areas, PLUS manage to spend so much time sitting on my ass doing sweet FA!

In other words … !

Let’s hang out together this weekend!!

What We Will Be Covering!

1) How to Monetize ANY Situation, Including But Not Limited To:

* When social media or any typically depended upon platform goes down (including examples of how I have down this several times, to the tune of tens of thousands)

* Hater situations (including examples, again multiple times, again tens of thousands of dollars)

* When you make a fool of yourself / something embarrassing happens or you screw up (also examples! also lots and lots of lovely moolah)

* When people ‘screw you over’ (ahem, we will talk about this) or desert you (also examples! more money!)

* Basically how to turn any and all life situations, moods, changes of the moon, emotional ups and downs, real life SHIT, to money!

2) Why the ‘When Shit Happens’ times are often the BEST times to make money, aka this is where I teach you what it really means to understand human psychology in terms of SALES, and the mindset of being an actual IN THE FLOW entrepreneur, who ALWAYS sees opportunity and jumps straight on it

3) When NOT to Monetize (okay that one you can have for free – never!!)

4) Understanding Where Money Really Comes From – and aligning yourself TO the frequency of wealth, such that you can literally NOT.BE.IMPACTED by anything that 99.99% of people think will cost them business

5) Money Vibration Principles Revealed (… my own personal philosophies and things that I live by / instil into my being around this, including my own daily practices)

6) Coding For Success

* How to ALWAYS have an endless stream of ideas

* AUTOMATIC continual unleashment of creativity and imagination, especially in so-called times of struggle

* Seeing past problems and accessing higher self in order to always know the answer, and how to move forward

7) Programming to Upgrade – the beliefs, energetic states and emotional patterns you require in order to be this person, have all this work for you, ALWAYS see and have the ability to act on the shit that will most pay off

The ‘Do What You Want All Day’ Bit:

* Exactly how my typical day flows and how I operate for maximum efficiency of time, energy, mental acuity, soul connectedness, etc

* Getting it all done as a busy entrepreneur (and single Mum, in my case) who also refuses to operate at anything less than EXCELLENT in terms of self-care, fitness, fun, playtime, etc

* Exactly what I do all day, broken down to the detail, to helm this becoming-8-figure-empire

* Exactly what I do NOT do all day, either it just gets ignored (hint: a LOT that most online marketers think matters!), or I let other people do it for me

* Calling in soulmate support, even long before you are ready to afford it

* Optimizing energy, focus, personal power, happiness, general flow. Aka mindset and also brain / nutrition hacks and so on

* TIME MANIFESTATION. OH YES IT IS A THING.

AND, while we’re at it, we will also be talking INSTANT MANIFESTATION. The exact process I use to bring the future into the NOW, by clearing all blocks existing between its reality in the quantum and its physical manifestation in the now!!

PLUS!

I’ll be doing this ‘Rapid-Fire’ Session at the end!!

1) What it really means to be magnetic online – hint: it’s not about having a pretty and polished website or online presence!

2) Bringing the ‘in private / behind the scenes’ version of you to the public

3) Unapologetic messaging and soul baring to call in your true #soultribe

4) Audience quality vs quality, and active elimination of those who don’t ‘HELL yes’ on your content

5) People don’t buy your products, they buy you. No – people don’t buy you, they buy your energy!! What that means and how to let it out

6) Being real about where you need to take care of YOU in order to be able to show up and shine fully

7) Keeping a laser-focus and tunnel-vision on your own path, and having the courage to pave the way that feels right for you even if it’s not been done before

8) Discernment to walk the line between being polarising and positively outrageous as opposed to just a hot mess 🙂 Scaling and magnetizing FROM the chaos of creativity and following the true artists way!

9) Knowing which ideas to work, what will sell, and how best to sell it so that the entire launch and selling experience is fun AND rewarding for both your audience and you

10) Creating hell yes offers that make them scream yes!

I know!

This workshop is off the HOOK already, and we haven’t even accounted for all the random shiz which will be coming out of me!!
