Create an Environment for Your Ultimate Success

Create an Environment for Your Ultimate SuccessDo you ever find yourself wondering why you can’t seem to uplevel your lifestyle and surrounds as fast as you wish you could?

I remember being in the second half of my twenties, officially underway with life as an online entrepreneur, and knowing that ‘one day’ I’d no longer be traipsing the streets in my workout gear, backpack on my back, and working from wherever I could find good coffee.

One day, I thought, when I’d REALLY made it, my life would be 100% 5-star. I’d wear gorgeous designer clothes, carry a stunning one of a kind handbag, and base myself in the very best beautiful locations for my on-the-go office.

I’d have the house, car, and travel schedule to match, and my at-home office would be everything I’d ever dreamt of, with a stunning view over my equally stunning garden.

I couldn’t wait!

Now here’s the funny thing. When I look back from where I’m at now to all of the years I spent accepting a (for me) sub-standard lifestyle or environment, they were also the years of struggle and fighting to breakthrough.

Makes sense, right? After all, I couldn’t exactly upgrade my life if I wasn’t yet making the money!

Or could I …?

[pq]I believe that your environment is critical to your success.[/pq] You’ve heard the saying that you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with (SO true, as behaviours and beliefs really do ‘rub off’), and it applies equally to your office, home and lifestyle surrounds. Now I’m not saying that you need to (for example) stay in 5-star hotels, live in a mansion, wear designer threads etc in order to reach success. What I AM saying is that how your environment feels to YOU matters.

For example – right now I’m sitting in the breakfast restaurant of a 5-star hotel. I upgraded my room to one on the top floor with stunning views. I’m eating pricier food than what I could get down the road in a cheapo cafe. And I’m planning a spa treatment later this day when I have a break. This feels good for me. I LOVE that I now only fly business class (and by mid 2015 it will be only first class!). I love that we always stay in the best hotels and go to the best restaurants. I love tipping 25% when in the States. I love that I can gratefully give money to other people, to companies, to small businesses, or wherever I go and I can trust that that money will return 10-fold to me and also yes – I can enjoy the first class environment that I long pined for.

But what I wear while I’m doing all of this? Mostly still workout gear, even in the restaurants! Hey – long days on the go with kids and moving from city to city on a nearly daily basis means I really could care less about designer threads. But actually I just don’t really care in general. I’m still a Lululemon and Mac in my backpack kinda girl, and my ‘office’ is still wherever the good coffee and wifi can be found.

What matters to you?

What do you need to wear, eat, work on or in or at, where do you need to go and how do you need to live your life in order to feel GREAT about yourself?

And – being honest now – what do you know is right now in any way dragging you DOWN due to the energy or beliefs it’s perpetuating in you.

The truth is, no matter how much you might try to convince yourself otherwise, you really do become an average of your surrounds. Of the people but also the general VIBE of it all. So yes, it’s about what matters or feels good to YOU but it’s also about recognising that there may be levels of belief about success you haven’t even considered, simply because you haven’t been exposed to them.

For example, earlier this year I joined a new mastermind with a goal of reaching 100k+ months consistently. Once I got chatting to the other students in there I found some were making upwards of a million dollars each month, and there was a hundred million dollar club in the group! These were figures I hadn’t even considered. All of a sudden my 100k month seemed so much easier to reach (and it was!) and also kind of a small goal!

The point is not that you always have to strive for more more more and never be happy.

The point is what are the TRUE limits you desire to place upon yourself, and is the way you’re living right now limiting you BELOW your actual desired potential?

Did working hard to make great money get me to a point where I can now call people like that friends and peers, now travel first class, now afford my dream home, now buy my fancy Mont Blanc pens and whatever else makes me feel good?

Or was it, perhaps, that –

Before I ever had money to spare I saved up and bought a $1000 Mont Blanc pen to write with …?

When I couldn’t ‘afford it’ I spent pennies I didn’t have on the best leather journal rather than a cheapo one …?

When I was struggling to pay my rent I’d pay for coffee in a fancy hotel lobby bar and work there, just to be in those surrounds …?

When my budget said Target I bought Lululemon workout gear … ?!

When I was already 40k in debt I invested in a 72k coaching program because I intuitively knew it was what I needed to get to the next level …?

When my business did grow but so did my debt, and I was over 100k, I invested again, this time in 50k coaching, because I knew I was worth it …?

When it was absolutely unnecessary practically – and this one many times over – I upgraded our hotel room so that I would feel LUXURIOUS in my environment and see myself as someone who has the best and therefore ACT accordingly within my business and life …?

Before I felt worthy I joined masterminds with top entrepreneurs and leaders, knowing that it was time to be the stupidest person in the room and watch MY level rise as a result …?

When recent accommodation booked wasn’t up to scratch and I knew clients were coming to see my there, I dropped an extra 3k just to get us moved, knowing I didn’t ‘have to’ but that I DID HAVE TO …?

When I’d already spent over 100k on my education this year I paid out another 15k that could have gone into savings to attend yet another conference (40 hours of travel, with kids, to get there!) and shelled out extra to be a VIP … then jumped into another 10k spend while at the event! … because I believed I HAD to be there …?

Your environment counts.

It is CRITICAL to your success.

The books you read, the people you associate with, how you spend your free time, the courses you go out of your way to attend, the investments you make to surround yourself with the right learning or mentors, the way your working surrounds make you feel, the way your clothing makes you feel, the way YOU make yourself feel in how you treat yourself, how you act towards yourself, how you believe about yourself and your business … it counts.

And here’s the thing.

It’s easy to tell yourself that when you get to ‘that level’ you can afford to be that person. But it’s kind of like an unfit person telling themselves that once they magically ‘get fit’ they’ll run that race.

You want to be the first class entrepreneur and live your lifestyle dream? Start running that race now. Act ‘as if’. Fake it till you make it! Do whatever it takes, however often it takes, to create an environment that lifts you UP or else the one you PUT up with will surely drag you down.

A challenge for today:

Write a quick list of everything that’s popped into your mind while reading this post and choose one small (or big!) way in which you can level it up this week.

You’re worth it baby! Time to live that one day dream TODAY!

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

P.S.

Rebel.
Upstart.
Fuck the system; screw the rules.
Won’t do what they told me.
Too much.
Unreasonable.
Ridiculous.
Unprofessional.
Crazy!

Should I go on? I could, but I think you get the picture.

You’re the one who is not only not like the other PEOPLE, you’re also not like the other entrepreneurs.

They, they actually think they’re different; non-conformists?! Don’t make me laugh. You and I both see it as it is:

They just wanna be told how to build a pretty little website and a pretty little social media page or three and a pretty little online product or course and get their pretty little headshots and do a pretty little pre-scripted dance all over the internet so that other equally pretty fucking bland and boring and same same-y peoples pay them money,

And they can all sit in a pretty little womans circle together patting each other linking elbows and stroking each others hair and singing Kumbaya as the sun sets over another day of sinking ever deeper into the unremarkableness that is their lives.

They are the ones who are not only willing to jump through hoops, they also want to build more hoops for other people; they want to perpetuate the hoop jumping life and their whole sales pitch is basically some version of “I will help you to have a better and shinier hoop, come see!”

lolol

BUT REALLY.

Meanwhile, you –

You’ve tried the hoop-jumping life, maybe more than what you care to admit. And, whilst you’ve nothing against sitting around with other ladeez and stroking each others hair, you and your girls; the real ones?

You don’t exactly fit in in the typical woman’s circle.

You don’t feel at home with the pretty-preneurs, not even on the internet let alone in real life.

You don’t actually GIVE a fuck about having all your shit perfect,

Polished,

And just so –

And the idea of having sales and marketing and content processes which you have to systematically pre-plan and then work through and endlessly join dots with?

Makes you want to hurl.

Sure –

You’ve bought in at times to do the idea that maybe you DO gotta do it as they say.

An automated webinar, perhaps?? Facebook ads which carefully and smartly tell the world who you are and how you can help? A sales plan proven and tested by the greats. The gradual sinking slow decline of your soul, your joy, your dreams, and even your pussy as everything within you that once knew she could HAVE IT ALL AND DO LIFE HER WAY SLOWLY DRIES,

WITHERS TO NOTHING,

AND DIES?

Sure –

Why not

And look.

It’s not that any of these things are bad or wrong. Maybe right now you’ve got to a certain point by playing by the rules … kind of. Following what ‘logic’ suggests you do. Breaking free here and there with wild little jaunts into over the top madness, noticing how THAT lights you up and also how people respond to it … but ultimately continuing to go back to trying to find the right fucking system to get you to where you want to go,

Because this thing of trying to just be you interspersed with trying to get it all right and make it work, well –

It’s God damn tiring –

But also, in the end, if we’re going to be black and white about it, it hasn’t got you to where you want to be!!

You KNOW you should be making SO much more money.

NOW.

With consistency, and yeah, while of course of COURSE you’re down for doing the work, you also feel like it SHOULD be a lot easier, more flow

And you know that you know that you know that you’ve still not let out the most unrestrained and fully expressed side of you!

– The you they can’t look away from
– The you they are MAGNETIZED by
– The you who automatically commands a huge freakin’ following, and sales to match it

You know who I’m talking about –

THE MILLIONAIRE REBEL YOU!

Starting January 18th!

>>> https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/rebelmillionaire/

The revolutionary fucking leader who tears SHREDS off of normal every damn day before the rest of the world has barely sipped its coffee!

Who is FULLY unleashed in what she says, how she shows up, how she does business, how she does life.

Who does not give a fuck about following rules! Or sales systems! Or strategies! Who can and will do what works for HER, and if it happens to resemble other ways people build an audience and make a fuckload of money online, cool, and if not, so what! That is not the point! The point is –

She knows what works for her.
She backs herself unapologetically.
She DOES it.

And she gets the damn results. The BIG results. The CONSISTENT results. The FUCK yes results, not just with money but with the VIBERY of it all.

Imagine …

Waking up every day and KNOWING you have crushed the day before it already begun because THAT IS WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU ROLL!

* Your shit sells (at any and all price point)
* Your creativity and inner ideas machine flows endlessly (you always know what to put out into the world and that when you speak people PAUSE EVERYTHING AND LISTEN, whether it is with free content and shenaniganery or with your paid stuff)
* You don’t even have to think about low end or high end or how to take people through a value ladder or some such bullshit, the value ladder is YOU CONTINUING TO BE YOU, and the more that you DO you the more people just take themselves through whatever it is you’re offering!
* It is easy, natural, fun, and OBVIOUS how to build your automated income, funnels, the ‘cash machine’ side of your business.
* In fact the whole damn thing feels fun and easy and like you’re just being you (the full on you, the too much you, the rebel you, the fuck all of ’em THIS IS WHAT I STAND FOR AND NOW I’M GONNA TELL YOU you!),
* and at the same time you have the DEEPLY grounded and certain knowledge that the way you’re doing it, hot mess and chaos vibes and all, is WORKING. PS – the reason you feel certain of this is because your bank balance and soulmate audience and their feedback reflects it, not bc your spirit guides told you it’s coming

All of this is ALREADY available to you.

It is who you are and what you were born for.

You did not come here for normal!

You are one of the truly crazy ones, who has something inside of her that will leave the world BREATHLESS –
and allow her to make millions and impact millions –

BUT NOT IF SHE CONTINUES TO DO BUSINESS AND LIFE BY TRYING TO SOMEHOW BE A NON-CONFORMIST WHO CONTINUALLY CAVES AND CONFORMS.

For this to work,

REALLY work, like next next NEXT level $ and life flow work,
you’re going to need to FULLY turn your back on the idea that your breakthrough is waiting on the other side of you adjusting, filtering, compromising, playing the game the way the other entrepreneurs are playing it, or worrying about what the fuck your social media looks like!

What you’re going to need to do is simple:

FLICK THE DAMN REBEL MILLIONAIRE SWITCH BABY.

All in on madness.
All in on crazy.

REBEL MILLIONAIRE

Starting January 18th!

For those who were born to run the damn thing,

To turn the world on its head and dance on top of it,
