Success Mindset

Fuck the Steps!

Just-because

Quick question for ya –

How often do you actually stop and QUESTION the way you’re doing business? (Or life, since there really shouldn’t be much DIFFERENCE now, should there?)

I don’t know about you but I find it INFURIATINGLY easy to get caught up in (once again, ffs!) doing all of the Things Which I Think Must Be Done.

Things that I HAVE to do (don’t I?!) in order to –

Be someone important.
Doing something good.
And worthy.
So that people will like me.
And buy my stuff.

Or, I don’t know, there might be other things but I think that in a nutshell?

That’s it.

And it just makes me wonder, now that I AM stopping to wonder about it –

WHO MADE THEM GOD ANYWAY?!

And by THEM, I mean of course ANYBODY who you are listening to, taking the word of at face value, and then structuring your LIFE according to without even considering whether you WANT to live your life that way.

I dunno, is it just me or is it freaking CRAZY that with all that we know about CHOICE and POSSIBILITY and the fact that it’s the OUTCOME that matters not the journey we are STILL acting like scared little schoolgirls and asking permission for how we BE OURSELVES?

Seems kinda crazy to me.

But hey, I’m just the one noticing it and (once again!) trying to pull myself up on it.

How about YOU?

If you’re not sure whether this resonates with you or is at all RELEVANT, a quick quiz –

All you have to do is answer ‘rules’ or ‘gut’ for each question. Namely, which one are you following.

*The way you’re currently trying to grow your list
*The way you plan out and then run your launches
*The way you blog, or indeed the way you communicate at all
*How often you email
*What type of stuff you email
*How often you post on social media (or if you use it at all)
*The style of coaching you do
*The structure of your programs
*How you network (or if you network!)
*What sort of learning you do
*What you do to get your name out there
*How you communicate in forums (your own and other people’s)
*How you map out your marketing
*What you do to SELL shit

GUT OR RULES honey? You only get to choose one in each situation but here’s where it gets just a LITTLE bit more confrontational –

I’d be willing to bet that how you do ONE thing?

Is how you do everything.

And how you do EVERYTHING, in case you didn’t realise?

Is how you’re crafting your life AND WHO YOU’RE SAYING YOU’RE ALLOWED TO BE.

So which is it baby?

Gut or rules?

Are you a GOOD little girl, desperately trying to DO THE RIGHT THING so that EVERYBODY likes her and she gets a gold star?

Nawwwww …

FAIL.

THAT IS NOT WHAT YOUR LIFE IS ABOUT.

SOME people’s, maybe.

But YOU?

You’re NO gold star wannabe honey.

So let’s try this again, yeah? Are you a GOOD little girl, carefully joining the dots of life so that somebody SOMEWHERE (please!) recognises her, or are you LIVING YOUR LIFE LIKE IT’S ACTUALLY YOURS?

Or to put it another way –

Are you carving your DESTINY right now, and living on PURPOSE, or do you prefer the Life-In-A-Box sort of approach, one that means the years pass by SAFELY, and you do some NICE stuff, and you get REWARDED by society, because hey!

Everybody loves SOMEBODY WHO FITS IN JUST LIKE THEM.

A tip for you, in case you’re not sure which path is for you –

You don’t get to live “life on your terms” if the TERMS were pre-determined by somebody else.

And those TERMS, those RULES, those STEPS that you’re following because that’s how it IS, that’s how it’s DONE, that’s how we DO things in online marketing, or in the woman entrepreneur world, or if we want to grow our list and make a difference?

(Keep this on the downlow, yeah … wouldn’t want it to get out or the ENTIRE SYSTEM MIGHT COLLAPSE)

Those steps were made by other PEOPLE.

Now I’m not quite sure here and you can correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t YOU a person JUST LIKE THEM.

And if THAT’S true then doesn’t that mean that you are EQUALLY qualified (if not, dare I say, MORE qualified) to DECIDE ON THE STEPS FOR YOUR OWN LIFE?

Just an idea.

But seriously, and it IS a serious question, why do you do that?

Why DO you give in to the rules, the musts, the shoulds, about ANYTHING?

Why do you keep doing SCARED when you could be doing YOU?

And don’t you believe, no don’t you just KNOW, deep down and where it MOST of all counts that if you just did you and to HELL with what anybody else says about it you’d truly come ALIVE and unleash your true AWESOMENESS on the world and that THAT would create you EVERYTHING YOU’VE EVER WANTED?

And if that’s the case, then again WHY and also –

What the actual FUCK?

Right?

Now don’t get me wrong here –

I am NOT just having a go at you right now.

I’m 100% including ME in this mix, because I?

I get scared.

I get distracted.

I get caught up ALL THE TIME in what others are doing.

I go to a new conference, or I check out somebody else’s sales page, or I jump on their webinar and all of a sudden I’m FRANTICALLY trying to do stuff I never even THOUGHT about doing and don’t even at all WANT to do but have now decided is ESSENTIAL for me to do because otherwise – otherwise – !

What?

I might not keep up.
I might not get there.
I might NEVER be good enough.

What I’m really saying, of course, when I give in to this stuff, when I’m SWAYED from my path of truth by this stuff, is that no.

Actually.

I don’t trust in my own ability to choose.
I don’t trust I’ll make the right decisions.
I don’t trust in my inner WISDOM.
And therefore I don’t get to decide how I live my life.

Which, now that I lay it out like THAT for you, is just freaking BULLSHIT.

I mean, seriously now – DO I LOOK LIKE THAT SORT OF PERSON?

One who doesn’t TRUST in herself, BELIEVE in herself, one who’s not willing to stand BY herself?

I hope to God no!

But yet I sometimes forget –

I’m human –

I at times envy others –

Or just think that they know more than me.

You too?

Ahhh … breathe it out sister. I’m with you.

But here’s what I do know, underneath it all and in spite of the fact that no doubt I’ll do it AGAIN!

When I follow my instincts …

When I BELIEVE in my intuition …

When I act from my CORE …

When I do what FEELS right …

When I say yes to ME …

And when I fuck ALL the steps …

Everything just –

Works.

I feel on purpose.

I come ALIVE with passion.

I step into FLOW.

And the work that I create?

It works.

It SELLS.

It changes LIVES.

You know?

Here’s what else I know, about you this time –

You have a purpose.

You have a calling.

You have a MESSAGE God damn it!

But for you to get that stuff OUT there, and do so in a way that feels good for YOU?

YOU NEED TO ACTUALLY GET IT OUT THERE.

In a way that feels good and right and TRUE for you.

Y’know?

So.

A mission, a challenge, a(nother!) call to ARMS.

Do you think.

For today.

And then perhaps tomorrow.

And perhaps ALL the tomorrow’s after that.

That you and I? That together we can agree –

That I’ll be me.
And you be you.
And that the rest of the world?
Can get screwed.

Fuck the steps baby. You were born to lead, and you don’t do that while chasing ANYBODY’S tail.

Agreed?

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

Rich Hot Empire starts next week, January 29!

>>> Work With Me for 6-Weeks Personally to Grow Your Perfect Cult Tribe, Create and Launch Your Low-High End EMPIRE, and Set Up Multiple Recurring Income Streams to Take You to 7-Figures and Beyond, Doing What You Love! <<<

I so deeply believe and know that women (and men!) like us – we just CAN’T do it in the normal way. We’re never going to fit in the Internet Marketer box. We don’t want to fit in the box! And even if we could fit in the damn box we’d blow that shit up! It’d be messy AF … and often IS.

It’s just not going to get us the results we want, because for those who are so soul-led, like you, like me, and have that whole crrrrrraazzzzzy creator thang going on (with a hefty dose of chaos!)

We gotta do it a different way.

BUT.

Being that person, the crazy creator soul-led one, can all too commonly result in work, yep, the actual ASSKICKIN’ work that needs to be done for YOUR empire to be created to, well –

Not get done.

The crazy ones have a tendency, from time to time, to get so caught up in ‘I gotta FEEL it’, that they don’t necessarily ground, plant, DECIDE, and make shit happen.

You may have noticed 😉

Maybe because there’s fear there of having to conform! And knowing from experience or just ’cause you KNOW, that you’re not going to, you won’t follow their rules, and so why even try.

Yet at the same time you know:

I have to lay myself on the line.

It’s time to back myself, but FULLY.

I gotta dig my damn heels in and DO the darn thing now!

This? This is what Rich Hot Empire, and the work I do with you as a private client in this 6 week time together, is all about. It’s a time to really get into the structure and strategy in a DIFFERENT kind of way. To go behind the scenes of how I’ve done it, to build a multiple 7-fig per year biz which breaks all the rules, lets me be me, and yet is also highly structured … without at all feeling that way!

It’s a pretty cool thing, to realise you figured out how to unleash ALL your madness, but fully, and NEVER compromise on what feels fuck yes and fly for you, and yet know you got your biz shiz sorted!

Guess what??

You get to have that too.

In Rich Hot Empire I take you fully behind the scenes of how I do this thing, and I help you to craft and also implement and FULLY action all the ins and outs YOU need to grow your soulmate tribe, and activate low right through to high end income streams, so you too can create the empire you dream of, FULLY ON YOUR TERMS.

You do this in a mastermind with my other private 1:1 clients, and you get to keep all content, all BTS of my biz, all templates, ‘how we dos’ (all based on being the crazy creator type), you name it, it’s all right there for you for life, showing you exactly what to set up, and how! I’ll give you a detailed rundown of that 6 weeks when you message me.

AND! Alongside the mastermind you’re simultaneously doing 6 weeks 1:1 with me. All in. You and me. Completely tailored. Daily conversation flow. Alignment and asskickery to infinity, baby.

We dig ALL the way in to your belief stuff, mindset stuff, energetic alignment and ability to receive, everything INTERNAL that is stopping you from already being where you know you should and could, and what to do about it.

Rich Hot Empire gets such incredible results for people because it marries these two areas together. Full alignment to that next level identity you KNOW is waiting for you –

And full asskickery to do what you know you gotta do, with me right there by your side showing you how to do that, how to find the exact way that feels good and works for YOU.

Ready to dig those damn heels in sister, but for real this time??

Message me for the full overview. Do it now. You don’t need another fucking person who will NEVER think like you telling you how to do shit you’d rather fork your own eyeballs than do. Even if it’s your own fear mind haha. You need someone who has done it for real from crazy. From madness. From flow. From SOUL. And can show you how to go all in on yours.

It’s motherfreakin’ time.

    I fucking love this! I decided this should be the last thing I read for the year – it’s that good. Going out with my fist raised, totally connected to CELEBRATING everything that life has to offer…first and foremost, my own GUT.

    So many exciting things happening, and while 2014 was a LIFE CHANGING year, 2015 is going to blow it the fuck out of the WATER!

    Thanks for this, and Happy New Year, Kat!!
