Will You Die For Your Dreams?

Screen Shot 2013-12-18 at 8.20.54 AM

This is Part 1 in my Live Your Dreams in 2014 (#liveyourdreams2014) series. Read Part 2 (Stop Being Scared to Follow Your Dreams) over here and Part 3 (Get Aligned for an Awesome 2014) over here!

For every goal I’ve ever achieved in my life, I’ve first had to fail. Sometimes I may have failed just once but more likely I’ve failed again and again and again and again. Often, I’ve failed so many times that that goal that once filled me with excitement and passion and certainty suddenly becomes grey and dull, surrounded by fear and the (lie) idea that maybe I can’t have it, can’t achieve that, can’t be that girl.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to dust myself off, pick myself up and PUSH myself to back into battle in achieving my dreams. And it’s not easy to do, not when you feel bruised and broken by failure and you’re starting to believe it’s just not going to happen for you.

What I can tell you is this –

Every time I HAVE gotten back up, picked myself up, raised my fists and charged back into the fray something amazing has happened.

Most people never ever achieve their big dreams.

Whether it be changing their body, successfully creating their dream business, living a life most wouldn’t even dare imagine. This is an incredibly horrible fact (I think) given that it is POSSIBLE for all of us to do anything we set our minds to and apply ourselves with persistence to. A lot of people get this. A lot of people even think they’re going to do it. They say they’re determined, ready, willing to do what it takes and that they won’t quit.

Except they do.

And they continue to live a life which does NOT fulfill them, in which they feel frustrated, resentful and most of all angry at THEMSELVES because they know they could do better, be better, be more.

Better, of course, is whatever it means to YOU.

We’re about to enter into a new year. A time when it’s natural to think about your life and how it’s going, to review the year just finished and plan for the year to come.

Me, I’m planning big because I always do. I dream crazy dreams that terrify me, that seem impossible, that most people don’t even understand, and then I get out there and make them happen. Let me clear in saying that when I embark upon achieving a dream or goal I generally have no freaking clue how I’m going to do so, and I generally have no available money or time for that dream. It’s almost certainly going to require me having to justify it to somebody else but all that really matters is that I justify it to myself.

6 years ago I had a crazy dream of one day making 80k+ per year online and living the laptop lifestyle where I can work, live and play from anywhere in the world.

Right now, I am writing this by the pool in the resort style complex where we’re spending 6 months before jetting off for 2-3 years of round the world travel. The beach is a stone’s throw away. The yearly goal I set for myself is sometimes my monthly income. I work less than 4 hours a day most days. Sometimes people tell me I’m so lucky or they wish they could be as good as writing as I am.

What. The. Fuck. Ever.

I had a dream of this life and I chased it like a maniac. I failed again and again and again and AGAIN and I failed again and again and again but ALL that matters is that I continue to get back up one more time than I fail. I fucked up so many times. I spent every spare minute and created new ones. I spent, invested and in part wasted literally several hundred thousand dollars trying to figure out what I needed to know, trying to rise to the level of being who I needed to be to do this. I’ve been in massive debt, I’ve had EVERYONE around me wondering what the hell I’m doing, I’ve sacrificed ever other part of my life. I’ve died a thousand deaths in this business to come out shining and you know what else?

Even that doesn’t mean that just ’cause I am where I am it’s going to be smooth sailing from here on out. And I’m okay with that.

Are you okay with dying again and again and again for your dream if it means that one day when you DO pick yourself up you’ll look around and realise your one day dreams came true?

Are you okay with being the crazy person who nobody and perhaps not even you understands?

Are you okay with NOT making it again and again and again so that one day you DO make it?

It’s okay if you’re not okay with that. If so, get a job. And that’s cool; we need people with jobs.

But don’t tell me you can’t live your dream. It’s never about can or can’t and it’s damn well not about luck. It’s about you will or you won’t.

A similar story can be told of my body stuff. I’ve been up, down and all over the place with my weight over the years (even despite 13+ years working as a successful personal trainer), I battled binge eating/bulimia for a decade. I’ve said the worst stuff to myself that a person can say. And yet through it all I’ve fought and refused to be anything but my best self inside out. By which I’m not talking necessarily about body weight/size but rather having a relationship with food and my body that makes me feel proud of myself.

Look back at your 2013. Have you gotten back up one more time then you fell down?

Are you forging on despite EVERYTHING that has tried to tell you that you can’t, you won’t, it’s not possible, keeping YOUR mind firm in the knowledge that you CAN, you WILL, you damn well ARE?

Right now perhaps you have a goal that is NOT quite working. You’re in the thick of it and you’re wondering when the breakthrough is gonna happen. You don’t know how long you can keep on going for, you need some feedback, some REASSURANCE that it’s going to work out.

I can give you that.

I can tell you with absolute truth that so long as you REFUSE to stay down when you fall, so long as you continue to put one foot in front of the other even (in fact especially) when you have no clue what you’re doing, you have a 100% certainty of succeeding.

And I can tell you with equal conviction that if you DON’T keep going, if you allow yourself to be distracted, disheartened, swayed, to be ‘practical’ about it then you have a 100% chance of not living your dream in 2014 or EVER.

But here is what else.

You’re not going to chase after and actually reach a dream – any dream- unless you are crystal clear on not only what you want, but why you want it.

I don’t mean you have to know exactly what your dream business, body, life, relationship etc would look like. After all, it’s impossible to predict exactly where you’ll end up – all you CAN control is what you put in and know that each time your head hits the pillow you gave it your blood, your sweat, your tears, you GAVE YOUR LIFE that day for your dream.

And the answer is yes, or it’s no.

So when we talk about what you WANT we’re not talking ‘x’ amount per month, or this program or product successful created or this much weight lost or that much great sex each week.

We’re talking bigger picture.

For me, spending 6 years, 40+ hours a week on top of my job, hundreds of thousands of dollars and at times every ounce of my belief to the point where I didn’t think I COULD keep going was never about getting to a point where I make the money I now make, do the amount of work I now do, help the thousands of people I can now reach.

It was ALWAYS and ONLY about freedom. And choice.

And my body goals, the fact that even though right now post-baby I can’t be the most in-shape person I CAN be and AM the person putting the most work in when I’m in the gym, that’s never about losing the baby weight, or being sub 15% or whatever but it’s ONLY about pride.

I want to be proud of my relationship with food, exercise, my body.

I insist on freedom.

I insist on choice.

I insist on feeling proud of myself.

What do you insist on for yourself? Get clear on that and you’ll be the person who never ever EVER quits no matter what and you WILL be the woman who lives her dream in 2014.

If you look back at your 2013 and you know that you could have given it more, or you don’t understand why you sabotaged yourself or simply wussed out and didn’t do the work, it has nothing to do whether or not that dream is possible for you. It is only about this –

You didn’t want it badly enough and you didn’t know WHY you wanted it.

In early Jan, my Dream Life Academy Online Bootcamp is going live. 6 weeks to quit the BS, get over your sh*t and finally start living the life you damn well know you deserve. You can come in with 1 big goal or a dozen, I don’t care. But what I do care about is this –

Are you willing to be the woman YOU need to be to live your dream in 2014?

Are you willing to be the crazy one, the one who nobody (and not even you!) understands?

Are you willing to GIVE YOUR LIFE for your dream? I say this from the point of view that right now if you’re NOT giving your life for your dream you’re giving it for something else, for whatever you ARE doing each day.

So it better damn well be worth it.

The truth is that you are freaking brilliant, you are capable of anything, your are NOTHING less than a mastor creator and you KNOW that. So this year, as we begin to begin it all again, decide that you are going to create by choice. That you are going to get up one more time than you get knocked down. That you are going to get CLEAR on what you want to feel, be, do, and have and WHY and that you are not going to stop until you get there.

And I’ll see you there. Because me? I’m damn well gonna live my dream in 2014! I hope you’ll join me.

Life is Now. Press Play.





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.


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?


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.


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 –



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.


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!!

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


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!!



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!!

    This is really resonating with me… I have tried very hard to make 2013 all about me. I gave myself time to myself when needed, I focused on doing the best training I can do considering I’m not allowed to run, squat, lunge anymore and I haven’t had a massive binge since Sept (I would have to be honest and say I’ve had the odd “mini binge”. But I haven’t gotten to the point of I just can’t be bothered trying anymore or more to the point I’m sick of trying for a goal I can’t reach. I’m done. I’ve been eating well for 5 months and my body is not changing as much as I’d hoped for. And I’ve found it really frustrating! So I’ve started relaxing and thinking “if this is where my body is going to sit well there is not much I can do about it!” I’ve stopped following fitness models because looking at their pics just makes me more frustrated. I want 2014 to be about loving myself, being kind to myself and trying to become less vain and realize it’s not all about how I look. However, after reading this blog I find the fire being re-ignited again! Maybe I should get up. Maybe if I take care of my mind and become more relaxed my body will take care of itself. Will be interesting to see what happens. Keep the blogs coming Kat-you may be able to help the un-helpable just yet!
