Money Mindset

CALLING IN ABUNDANCE, AND NOT GIVING A FUCK. A LESSON ON RECEIVING

I just spent $567.53 USD on dinner, for one, plus tip, and I OVER tip as a rule. So – $697.53, actually, since I just signed the check midway through writing this blog, and have now amended this first paragraph.

STOP READING NOW IF PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT SPENDING MONEY … INFINITE MONEY … INFINITE ABUNDANCE OF ALL FORMS … TRIGGERS YOU!

$416 wine. BORDEAUX, of course, what were you thinking?

Rest rest, food, whatever it was, it was amazing.

I have to admit, I’m kinda embarrassed to post about this … it feels pretentious, or audacious, or reckless, or just like, the kind of thing you ‘shouldn’t’ talk about … but then again, I’ve always been a sucker for talking about things one should not speak of 

There are certain places in the world, where I seem to go out of my way to make some kind of a POINT, about spending money.

Certain places?
Those places are called A-M-E-R-I-C-A, largely 

Okay, especially New York. And especially LA. And definitely also London as well, when I’m there (dw, I’ll get back there soon enough!)

Okay, okay, basically any amazing city, especially when I’m alone. Or especially when I’m with clients. Or especially when I’m feeling high vibe as fuck! Or EXTRA especially when I am alone, and yes I know I already said that. It’s double true.

O-KAY then. Most place, most of the time. Haha.

The truth is, actually, if you want it, that I AM proving a point. Since I never wrote about this before, and I’ve been wining and dining myself this way (amongst other fancy things!) for years, I’d say largely to ME. But now let me make it to you –

There was a time when I not only was categorically not buying $416 bottles of wine just for a quiet working dinner for one, but I couldn’t even buy COFFEE.

I KNOW.

The horror. It was as awful as it sounds, and then some. I don’t know what was worse actually – worrying about paying my wifi bills, or worrying about paying for coffee. Fuck food, I was failing at the grocery store checkout all the TIME. I used to go in there like I was playing the lottery – bizarrely I would choose NOT to login first and freakin’ CHECK my bank balance, I would get about $30 of food and just pray.

Sometimes it worked.
Sometimes it did not.

At least 2 or 3 times a week it DID NOT, and I would fumble some excuse, or just abandon my stuff at the self-serve checkout, and leave.

It never occurred to me that given the frequency with which this shit occurred, it might have been observed by staff … #doh

Anyway.

I learned to live on the knife edge of the knife edge, as so many entrepreneurs do, and maybe you are right now.

Coffee, wifi, food, those were my daily struggles.
But, I also sold my house. My car. My pitiful share portfolio. My husbands motorbike. Even my (not great!) purses on eBay. It ALL just disappeared.

Travel, when we did it, was budget as FUCK. EVERYTHING was budget as fuck. Except for growth. lol. Somehow I also made THAT work!

I stayed there, on the knife edge, for YEARS.

Never QUITE drowning.

But always gasping for air, going under, and wondering if I’d come back up again.

Somehow I always managed to break the surface at the final moment, shocked expression on my face as I realised just how close I’d been to COMPLETELY bottoming out.

And to make matters worse (or funnier, depending on your perspective!) the one time I cried out to God and asked ‘how much longer; I can’t TAKE it, He answered –

“You’re going ALL THE WAY DOWN before you come back up again”

lololololNOT!

Actually, it was a huge blessing in disguise, to hear that. In fact, it wasn’t even so disguised.

I’d been fighting SO HARD to stay afloat. Resisting like a MOTHERFUCKER. And refusing to ‘be’ where I was.

In that moment, something inside of me snapped.

“Well, BRING IT ON THEN GOD!”, I shouted, and I FLUNG my arms out in the air, quite literally.

“IF I’M GONNA GO DOWN, THEN LET’S JUST FUCKING DO IT, AND FAST!”

YEP, I cursed at God.

Sad face.

I meant it though. I had this vision come through me, in that incredible moment, in which I heard (I swear!) the AUDIBLE voice of God tell me I was going to GO TO ROCK BOTTOM.

And the vision was me on a rollercoaster.

Holding on oh so tight.

REFUSING to let momentum take its course, on the scary downward slope.

I saw quite clearly, that if I didn’t LET GO AND SURRENDER, I was going to get to the bottom and have NO MOMENTUM TO GET BACK UP AGAIN.

In that second, I let go.

BRING IT ON THEN GOD!

I surrendered, FULLY.
I let go, FULLY.
I decided to not GIVE a fuck, FULLY.

And in that SECOND, my life was changed, because all of a sudden I was NO LONGER BOUND BY FEAR.

What good had it served me ANYWAY? None! So why not just OWN and EMBRACE where I was.

And so I did.

Fast forward 4 weeks from SURRENDERING, and I had made an extra 40k ‘from nowhere’, a new idea which just WORKED.

6 months after that I was going 50k a month.

8 months after that 80k.

And 10 months after that, November of 2014, I had my first 100k month, and right away wrote one of my 50+ Amazon best-selling books, ‘The 100k a Month Formula’. This is a MINDSET book, duh.

So what has all of this got to do with spending what most people would consider a foolhardy amount on dinner and wine even once, never mind on repeat?

Well, I’ll tell you.

Part of what I REALISED in that moment of crying out to God, having Him respond, seeing the accompanying vision, and making the choice to LET GO, was that I was talking a decent game on abundance at the time, but I was not BACKING myself.

Maybe sometimes …

But I certainly didn’t ‘always do what my soul desires and requires’, like I do now!

NOW I know (and live by, and speak of, often!) that WHEN I SAY YES TO MY SOUL, LIFE SAYS YES TO ME.

It’s a rule.
Try it.
It works.
Only if you fucking FOLLOW it, always though, not just when it feels convenient or logical or not scary!

I realised –

That if I really believed ABUNDANCE WAS INFINITE, then I would ALWAYS be saying yes to what I, well, felt like!!

It sounds reckless, doesn’t it?

How could you trust yourself?

What if your soul feels like REPEATEDLY GETTING INTO DEBT FOR MENTORS AND COOL SHIT, AND OTHER SHIT?

Well, what if?

I dunno … I dunno what YOUR aligned path is at all, and I would certainly never tell you to get into debt ‘or else’, in fact I wouldn’t tell you to do ANYTHING, except for whatever YOUR soul says!

But for me? Honestly? A big part of MY journey WAS getting into (at my ‘worst’, let’s say BEST!) over 145k of total debt!

I am GLAD I did that.

I learned so much.

And I NEVER said no when I knew I had to work with someone | travel somewhere | buy a thing | do a thing.

Somehow, I always made it work … just. Head above water, gasping for air, barely, just in time.

It was exhausting.
It was relentless.
It was terrifying.
It was my fucking PATH, and I wouldn’t change a SECOND of it.

Now.

Now.

NOW.

Sometimes –

I sit in very fancy restaurants by myself (or with friends, but these deep moments tend to happen mainly alone)

I might be in one of the highest rated Michelin star restaurants in New York City, as I am right now.

Or, anywhere, really.

And there’s this moment.

This moment when I look back –

And I remember the girl, the girl who since 11 years old, KNEW she was born for more. Who read Tony and Brian and Zig and Harry at that age and said YES –

That’s what I’m going to do.

Not – ‘I want to do that, or I’ll try’.

But, that is what I WILL do.

The girl who, then, had no idea HOW to do it, and so initially sought to embark upon a normal ‘successful’ career, become a lawyer. Got the grades for it. Went to University for … a week? Stopped going. Started selling random shit instead. Freaked the fuck out over what she was doing with her life. Became a personal trainer, basically as a way to prove she was finally one of the COOL kids. Got married at 25. Divorced at 26, messily and with much trauma. Had a ‘quarter life crisis’ at 27, and suddenly realised – fuck! All of that stuff she dreamed of wasn’t gonna happen if she didn’t MAKE it happen. Started a blog. Had no idea what she was doing. Heard about ‘ebooks’. Wrote one. Made $407 with her first online launched. Realised instantly, in her kitchen, as she looked at the sales, that if she could make $407 she could make ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD AND SHE WAS UNSTOPPABLE. Started to listen more to what people said, needed, wanted. Made info products. Then more. Lost her way. Found it again. Got married again. Had kids. Left a marriage again, EVEN more messily. Kept going, somehow, through it all. Eye on the prize, KNOWING she was born for it, KNOWING that if she just.kept.going she would GET there.

I remember that girl.

And I remember how somewhere, deep within, she ALWAYS fucking knew –

That what she felt inside of her was real.

That ABUNDANCE was real.

That it was INFINITE.

And that whatever she asked for IN FAITH and held true to and refused to sway from, took SOUL ALIGNED action towards, would HAVE to come true.

I remember that girl, so fondly, and I see her, now finally, with true love and acceptance when I look at her.

And I guess all I’m saying is, well –

Sometimes I like to raise a rather fine glass to her, and to all she became, and will still become, and all she knows, and has always known.

And sometimes?

I just wanna fucking prove the point that every dollar I spend is returned to me tenfold, and then some.

Because?

ABUNDANCE IS MOTHERFUCKING REAL, BITCHES.

And either you believe fully –

And act accordingly –

Or you don’t at all.

Either way –

You already chose.
Your actions show it.
And your life?
Is created by it.

I love you.
I honour you.
I believe in you.

AND YOU?

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!!
