How Many Times Will YOU Try Before You Admit Failure?

How many goes does a parent give the average baby when it’s learning to walk? I think 5 is a reasonable number, don’t you? Maybe a couple more if they seem to be a slow learner. What would you say?

You’d probably tell me to stop being ridiculous.

Obviously a baby is allowed to – and will – keep trying until they can walk, right? They might fall down hundreds of times first, often hurting themselves in the process! But still they get up again, and usually right away. Interestingly, no-one is scoffing at them or telling them they clearly aren’t cut out for this stuff.

To the contrary, right? When we see a child trying to move from one stage to the next, we focus exclusively on the positive aspects – on the fact that they’re trying, on how far they did go, on how clever they are, and we tell them to keep trying. If you’ve ever watched a baby trying to do or achieve something – be it crawl or walk, or simply get to the object they want – you’ll know that the term ‘steel-eyed focus’ doesn’t apply only to adults. In fact, it probably applies less so to adults.

Babies never give up.

so why do you?

At what point do you think you and I lose this sense of pure determination to do with something we want to do or be? Think about it – how many times do you typically try to do something before you admit failure?

Perhaps you might think you’re accepting reality. “I gave it all I could”, you might say. Or – “But I really tried everything”.

NO.

If you’d tried everything then you would have been successful.

You might think I’m being an unrealistic dreamer. You might be jumping at the bit to point out tons of examples of people who definitely cannot achieve or be ‘a’, ‘b’, or ‘c’. Should you do so, I could, of course, respond by listing tons of counter-arguments; of people who’ve achieved an impossible dream despite all odds.

But why argue over it? Wouldn’t you simply rather use these people as your inspiration and driving force?

it’s easy to justify

You can always find something or someone to help you justify giving up. That’s easy. The positive encouragement that we so willingly heap on babies seems to drift away after a sad few years in many cases. By the time kinder hits there seems to be at least an even mix of can’ts and cans in terms of what the child might expect to achieve.

Think back over your own life. At what age do you think you stopped believing you were invincible? At what age did your childhood dreams become silly fantasies that you’d turn your nose up at? How many times in your life have you decided that it’s better to ‘just be realistic’ or ‘accept that you’re never going to do or be ‘x’?

Are you doing it now?

if colonel sanders can do it then why can’t you?!

Yesterday I listened to an old podcast I have from Tony Robbins. I LOVE this man. I love everything about him, most especially his somewhat OTT voice. I used to listen to his audios when I walked to walk at 6am – what an energising way to start the day!

Aside from the point on letting babies try to walk until they actually can walk, there was one other story Tony told which really stood out –

Colonel Sanders tried to get his chicken into 1009 different stores before he was successful. This was while he was in his mid-sixties! And let’s be honest. There are simply countless similar stories of perseverance. Some of the greatest inventions of our time are built on such stories. These are not extraordinary people by nature! These are simply people who have a goal, who are focused, and who do not give up. They are consistent in their actions, and persistent in the dreams.

When I started Body Incredible, one thing that I remember saying to myself is that even though I didn’t really know anything about blogging, I believed in my writing abilities. I made myself a promise to just keep going with this blog; to consistently put up content. I remember thinking that if I was consistent with it would eventually get somewhere. It would have to. And I’m happy to say it has 🙂

Sure, there are loads of bloggers who have more readers than I in a shorter period of time. Just as there are loads of people out there who get in shape or achieve their dreams much faster than you.

So what? Does that mean you’ll never get there?

could there be an extraordinary person lurking inside YOU?

So be honest now. Could you be one of those ordinary people who just keeps going until they achieve something extraordinary? Or have you told yourself that this is your last attempt to lose weight/get fit/run a marathon/eat healthy/find love/follow your passion/deal with your issues?

Don’t you think that allowing even the possibility of failure into your mind could be preventing you from ever truly reaching your dreams? If you wouldn’t tell a baby to just give up and deal with the fact that they’re going to have to crawl forever, then why on earth would you accept anything less for yourself?

let’s get personal

Do you have a dream that you’d like to brush off and take up again? Or perhaps something that you were wondering if you should just give up on and now think maybe you’d rather believe in after all? Please share!

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

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.
