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.

Kat x

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 crazy.
