How to Be Certain

I feel uneasy.

It’s been there for a while now, this sense of being slightly ‘off’. Worried, maybe? I’m not sure. A little bit of a scattered energy, like I don’t QUITE know what I’m doing or whether I’m on track. Like maybe people don’t really like me, and they’re just pretending. Like maybe it’s all going to come crashing down, at any moment! Like maybe I should just sweep my entire business and life off the table, delete everything everyone all of it, and start afresh.

Okay that last sentence is a slight over-dramatisation, but the rest is bang on.

And what it comes down to I guess, is I’ve fallen into that age-old entrepreneurial trap of trying too hard. God, I’m only realising it even as I write this! Thank you for letting me use my blogging to sort my own shit out 🙂 🙂 🙂

You’d think I’d have learned by now … heavens knows I’ve done this enough before, then realised, then adjusted, got back on track, back to alignment, back to what works, back to FLOW.

This morning I wrote in my journal:

What do I need?
I need to be in flow, I answered myself.
How do I get into flow, I asked.
Stop rushing. Stop pushing. Breathe.
Why am I not in flow, I asked.
Too much rushing. Too much pushing. Worrying.
Worrying about what?
If what I’m doing is working. If it makes sense. If I’m going to be okay. Am I going to be okay?!
Breathe.

Sometimes, I forget to breathe. Do you do that? I don’t mean in the physical sense, although shallow breathing patterns do creep up on me from time to time. But I do my yoga, I do my meditation, etc etc.

I’m talking about … I don’t know what I’m talking about. Emotional breathing? Is that a thing? Let’s make it a thing. NOT breathing emotionally is when your overriding thought pattern (even though you may do a VERY good job of hiding it, pushing it down, trying to lalalala ignore it) is OHMYFUCKINGGODI’MGOINGTODIE.

I don’t actually think I’m going to die. Well, one day. But what I mean is that when you allow fear and stress and uncertainty and lack of faith to creep up on you, when you let it stay for a day, when it sticks around so sneakily and consistently that soon it becomes part of you, when it therefore starts to impact the actions you take in every area of your life, you’re actually changing hormonal processes inside of you.

You’re activating the sympathetic side of your nervous system, the side that, in days gone by, would have gone into overdrive if a lion was about to gobble you up or you were in a war.

An actual war, not an internet war.

So the thing with your sympathetic nervous system, is that the way you’re designed is to go into overdrive when your life is in danger. Real danger. Which means that either you’d die (problem solved), or the danger would go away. Lion gone. War over. Food found. Etc. Problem solved, and you can breathe again.

Now, with the way we do business do life do us, the problem is never solved.

The pressure mounts daily. Mostly from within, but the impact that has on our nervous system is no different and probably worse to the impact of external pressures and fears.

So we gradually, slowly, but ever so surely start to live with a pattern of simply BEING someone who is driven by fear, by anxiety, by worry.

Which is to say we walk around, all day every day, with our sympathetic nervous system screaming OHMYFUCKINGGODYOU’REGOINGTODIE.

How this shows up, in business?

Scattered energy.
Decisions made from fear.
Rushing.
Nervousness.
Inability to trust in yourself.
Inability to act on trust.
Seeking the quick fix, the magic bullet.
Chopping and changing.
TRYING too hard.

The whole idea of activating this ‘fight or flight’ part of you is that you FIGHT or you FLEE, but it’s for a brief period of time, and then it’s done. In order to HELP you fight or flee your body goes into overdrive, your breathing shortens, your digestion slows, your hands become clammy so you can grip things, your eyes narrow, everything within you is POISED and ready to SPRING.

This is a GREAT thing when it’s for the short-term.

This is a TERRIBLE thing when you live with it day by day.

Basically what happens is, you fall apart.

Physically and emotionally.

What it looks like, from the outside? It looks like a busy, ambitious, driven person who is making shit happen 🙂

What it feels like from the inside? Well the truth is nothing, most of the time, if you’re used to it. And trust me – you’re probably used to it. I’m painting this extreme picture like it’s an exception or something, but the reality is that most of US? Well heck if you identify as ambitious, driven, want it all, want it now, go-getter, creative, leader? You’ve lived like this. You maybe ARE living like this right now.

I’m not what you would call an anxious person. I don’t struggle with nervousness. I’m not jumpy or panicky. I’m pretty calm in the way I go about most things even though at times I am going a million miles an hour. I take plenty of time off each day, plenty of time for me, for my kids, etc.

Yet still I battle this stuff.

It’s in my DNA; I let it in decades ago. I’ve been driven by FEAR of not being good enough, not being enough, never getting there (even though I’ve always believed) for as long as I can remember.

I’m driven by other things as well, desire to help people, significance, leave a legacy, the sense that this work is what I’m CALLED to do, what I must do, my destiny is to make millions, impact millions, change the world in some way.

I’m driven also by pure love of the game. I love the push. I love the fray. I love even the fear!

And there we have it:

I get off on the pain, the struggle, the uncertainty.
I get off on not knowing if I’ll make it, if I can keep going, and then I do!
I get off on deliberately putting myself in a situation where I’ve bitten off more than I can chew, and not knowing if I’ll make it.
I get off on straining.
On fighting.
On RACING.

Not from a lion or a bear, but TOWARDS the life I dream of and am creating. What am I running FROM?

Fear of being normal.
Fear of my life being insignificant.
Fear of not mattering.
Fear of not doing it right. Doing what right, you ask? EVERYTHING.

I don’t tell you this because I have the answer. Should I be able to see myself as worthy, of significance, of having a message people want to hear, of making the right choices and ‘doing life right’?

Yes, no, maybe, whatever.

It is what it is.

I know how to put aside fear, resistance, act anyway.
I know in a logical sense that my life matters.
I know my message helps people.
I know that it’s okay to fuck up, make mistakes, make a mess, that the best you can do is the best you can do.

So I’m not telling you that I know a way to TRANSCEND all of this, to be someone who believes in themselves 100% of the time! And is super confident! And knows it all! And thinks they’re awesome! And the whole world is awesome! And it’s all just LOVELY! And there’s a way to be CERTAIN, all of the time!

Except for this, this one thing I’m sure of:

Even in the midst of fear and doubt and panic and OHMYFUCKINGGODI’MGOINGTODIE, you have choice.

I have choice.

And you have power, as do I. To remind yourself of what matters. To recommit to what you desire. To decide that the best you can do is the best you can do.

And to remember –

Life is Now. Press Play.

MONETIZE THAT SHIT NO MATTER WHAT

{AND DO WHAT YOU WANT ALL DAY}

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.

Vibrate?

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?

EXCITEMENT.

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.

Zag?

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 –

AND

(drumroll)

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.

And?

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!!

Introducing:

What We Will Be Covering!

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

* TIME MANIFESTATION. OH YES IT IS A THING.

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!!

PLUS!

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!!
