Success Mindset

I HID IT FOR THREE YEARS, I FELT SO SELF-CONSCIOUS ..

Not many people know this about me, in fact I’d say it’s as few as only 2 or 3 people, and that’s because they were the ones helping me to rehabilitate.

I literally didn’t talk about it at all for the entire time it was going on. Why? I guess I didn’t want to acknowledge the weakness. I didn’t want it to be real, I didn’t want to speak it more into reality, so it was a bit of conscious ‘blinders on’, and also the idea of admitting how incapacitated I was felt a bit too vulnerable.

But, it’s a story worth sharing because I know so many of us – even, or sometimes especially perhaps! – those of us who should know better, fail to remember the power that comes with true DECISIVENESS, followed by action. In this case very careful, and pretty much infuriatingly humbling action!

I don’t mean to sound quite so dramatic, I guess it wasn’t really that big of a deal, and part of me feels like an idiot even writing about this, but at the same time – it kind of was! Or certainly felt like it was at least, to me! And I think anyone who has been as much of a health and fitness junkie as me and went through something like this would relate.

So anyway – what nobody knew and I made sure to hide, because hey – I’m all about being that fit as fuck chick – is that for 3 years, between August 2015 or so, and a little later than that last year, maybe Sept / October 2018, I was barely capable of getting out of bed each morning, or of dressing myself, and I couldn’t do so much as a single full depth bodyweight squat or bar-only deadlift, or a single lunge, or ANY sort of impact cardio such as running, due to the incredible pain through my lower back and hips; a product of having blown a couple of discs in my lumbar (low) back when doing a crazy plyometric based circuit in the gym in Bali, August 2015.

Don’t get me wrong – once I got up and moving for the day – God, SO damn cautiously – I was certainly able to move around ‘mostly’ normally, and definitely if I was properly warmed up could do certain high intensity exercise even including Muay Thai (although had to have pretty consistent breaks of weeks on end due to how bad it would get), but I literally could not get out of bed in the mornings, and I could not dress myself.

I would roll side ways out of bed –

And usually lean on something (like a handy child) to get my underwear and pants / shorts on. It was SO freaking hard, the getting dressed part. So painful. My body basically just wasn’t capable of bending or twisting at all; it felt like something was going to snap. And every time I even attempted a low or no weight lower body exercise at the gym it was just agony. A few times I got stuck, and had to collapse to the floor. I also got stuck in chairs at cafes several times. And every time I had a massage and was laying on my stomach for an hour I was basically stuck on the table afterwards, ‘cause my back had seized up.

I tried everything – all the different modalities and remedies, and CONTINUAL release work, yoga etc, but it just didn’t improve. I kind of got used to it … it wasn’t so bad … I just had to be REALLY really careful, and find different ways to maintain my fitness obsession. No way was I giving that up lol! I just worked around it.

Here’s the thing though –

I guess I just thought that with time it would improve, and, well, it didn’t. It didn’t really get worse either, but it definitely didn’t improve. Some days were worse than others, sometimes even driving was agony. But mostly I kind of adjusted.

The other thing is – I basically didn’t even consider the idea of consciously rehabilitating myself back into the movements I was no longer able to do, because I was so focused on NOT being able to do what I was used to. God, I used to squat (for depth) up to 80kg, deadlift the same, run and jump and sprint and was basically a warrior at fitness. Now all of a sudden I was the careful boring person at the gym … at least I was there … but my ego HATED and felt embarrassed about being so far from where I wanted to be.

It felt like unless I could just go to the end goal of being able to lift again like I wanted to, then what was the point?

So what changed?

Pretty much, I just decided that I was done with this! I decided that I was no longer available for such limited and pain-led movement. And I decided that come hell or high water I was getting myself back to where I needed to be.

That first session back squatting was September a year ago I think … it took me 45 minutes and 10 extremely careful and extremely shallow sets to get to where I could even put 2.5kg either side of the damn empty bar. My hips were SCREAMING. I had to be SO cautious in the movement, it felt like something was going to snap. I know fitness and movement pretty well after being at the top of the industry for 13 years in my previous career, but still. Was I being stupid? Too bad; I was sick of waiting!

From that week forward I made continual gradual process, but it was still about 6 months before I started to squat and deadlift something that I considered a PASSABLE amount of weight. Probably around the 8 month mark I decided to try some sprints, for the first time in years. I was super scared, actually more so I just thought there’s no way I will be ABLE to, I know my body won’t allow that, and then I gave it a go anyway, and wow – I could actually run, no sprint again, and NEARLY pain free! Only for 5 sprints and then it felt like I better stop, but still. That day a few months ago was literally one of the most exciting of my life. lol.

Now, I am still not quite back to my max weights, but I am nearly there. I’m pretty sure that this week I’ll be squatting 60kg again for depth for the first time in ages – my bodyweight – and that’s a bit of a milestone. I did 57.5kg a couple weeks ago, so I know I can get it. I should mention I didn’t just squat my way back to movement. I also started to consistently, multiple times per week, do a TON of stabilising work. You know – the annoying little ‘doesn’t feel like you’re really doing much’ stuff that works all the teeny muscles but is kind of endless and takes a fuckload of time.

I just removed emotion, committed to the outcome, and started to do the work.

I would say that my whole core and pelvic area, as a result, is stronger than it EVER was. In fact probably why I hurt myself so badly back then is I never really addressed all that stuff; like most people I was lazy with a lot of stuff that didn’t entail being a hero in the gym!!

Anyway, here is why I felt to write about this today –

I see so many people in business delaying doing the smaller things that will stabilise and support their business, and build a foundation which is UNSHAKEABLE.

I see so many people in business avoiding even BEGINNING on achieving big building block parts of their business, things that will truly create a CASH MACHINE, for example, because, well, just like me wanting to go straight back to the big lifts, they just wanna be THERE already.

The idea of having to start small, humbly, carefully, is annoying, overwhelming, and also they feel, as I did with my body, that it’s kind of POINTLESS.

Just this morning I was commenting to one of my besties that even when I basically don’t work at all, my company revenue is still a couple hundred thousand per month, MINIMUM. When I pull out all the stops, it’s more than double that. But my baseline is multi-6-figures per month!! #unshakeable

^^^ This did not happen by accident!!

There was a time when every dollar which came in was a result of pure hustle and grind, force even.

And then, well, what changed?

I decided I was done with not having automated income, and a cash machine which WORKED.

I decided I WAS done with my excuses, fears, uncertainties, or desire to already ‘be there’.

And I decided to remove emotion and just do the work.

Consistently.

A small amount of time, mostly every day.

Plenty of it was the smaller ‘stabilising’ stuff which nobody really wants to do! Just like nobody really wants to do the smaller ‘stabilising’ things in the gym, the ones which prevent injury and build a TRULY strong core, and body.

And plenty of it was the really BIG stuff which felt so far away to achieve that, well, why even begin?

Why?

BECAUSE IF YOU JUST REMOVE EMOTION AND DO THE DAMN WORK you can become ANYTHING. Achieve anything. Create the biggest and most badass outcomes, and also be the person who everyone is like WOAH – how the fuck is she so THERE?

This morning at the gym I really noticed a lot of people look at me.

I am looking GOOD. My muscle is really dense, and I’m pretty lean right now. Stopped eating cocowhip ice cream every day haha and dropped the extra body fat that was annoying me just in the last few days. But yeah – my shape is on point. I’ve been working my ASS off for nearly a YEAR now.

Consistent as FUCK, not just at ‘doing the workout thing’ but at doing what is NEEDED to build the body I really want, inside and out.

I’m about to turn 40 in 25 days and I look fucking amazing, if I do say so. In the best shape of my life maybe! But this time REALLY, meaning my body is highly functional, I am strong, I am fast, I can jump and leap and sprint, play soccer with my kids today and I am 99% PAIN FREE, and improving daily.

This didn’t happen by accident!! I’ll say it again.

And nor did my BUSINESS the way it is now.

I put aside ego.

I removed emotion.

I started small, and in the excruciating overwhelm-y-ness of it at all.

And bit by bit I moved forward, building a CASH MACHINE ‘behind the scenes’ of my business which, at its best, has brought us in over 90k per week in ADDITIONAL revenue.

That’s on top of live hustle / launching.

It didn’t happen overnight.

And it also didn’t happen because I was the person WORKING the most, just like the person who goes to the gym the most is not the most in shape, and also not the one who has an unshakeable core and is likely to be pain free.

It happened, both these things happened, because I got INTENTIONAL.

I fixed my mind on the outcome.

And I did the damn work.

With my automated income, I largely nutted it out myself.

But now, for the first time, I am teaching on this in an all new content and fully LIVE new course, starting this September 16. In just 4 weeks of working with me personally you too can learn the proven and simple system which I found to create multiple low-high end recurring income streams so you (like me!) can build your soul biz to multiple 7-figures and beyond, doing what you love as the $$$ roll in and you spend your time doing you!

Yep, Automated Income Cash Machine is here, and the doors JUST opened today!

https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/automatedincomecashmachine/

Is it going to happen overnight? Probably not. But is it going to happen while you continue to moan about how far away your desired outcome still is, or about how you don’t know where to start or it’s all too much and not fair?

NO.

Is it going to take as long as it took me? No, because you’ll have me there showing you exactly what I figured out, and helping you to implement it all!!

Plus, just to add a cherry on top for you, this weekend ONLY I am giving away for free something which my team just uncovered in the hallows of our Dropbox archives and which is literally PRICELESS, and also not available to buy for ANY amount!

The Long Lost 100k / Month Blueprint Formula

A secret document which I created in April 2015 after I’d been consistently doing 100k months for 5 months by that time, and detailing exactly how I did it!

It’s my free gift to you this weekend ONLY when you get the place you’d be crazy not to, in Automated Income Cash Machine.

I know what it’s like to feel SO far away from where you want to be, but you know what?

That’s just a damn choice.

Let’s get you choosing differently now, and acting accordingly.

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.
All in on chaos.
