INSANELY LIMITING MONEY BELIEFS – And How to Fix ‘Em, Fast!!

I came across a post on Facebook yesterday that stopped me DEAD in my tracks with the ridiculousness of the first few comment responses to it. Ridiculous from a OMFG I can’t believe people don’t see their INSANELY LIMITING BELIEFS point of view.

The post was to do with the fact that for someone who only makes $500 a month online (for example), making $5000 would seem like a BIG stretch and feel out of reach, whereas for someone who makes $100,000 a month online, making $5000 would seem pretty much all in a day’s work; totally easy and doable.

GREAT food for thought post, right?! I found myself right away nodding my head at how true it is that if you want to make more MONEY you just need to change your sense of what’s normal and doable, and then you automatically WILL! For me 100k a month feels about right and as it should be … 5k is not even in the ballpark of what I’d consider REMOTELY possible for me to ONLY make such a small amount each month even if I wanted to!!

Of course it hasn’t always been that way and I’ll get to that in a moment …

But taking my own situation and flipping it the other way: I was listening to Gary Vaynerchuk online last night and he was talking about how easy he finds it to build 50 million dollar businesses. To him that’s WAY EASIER and more ‘everyday’ and normal to do than getting into great shape has been over the past year and a half or so! Great story, huh? I love the way this sort of stuff gets you thinking about how it really IS just about what you ‘see’ as easy … the idea of building a 50 million dollar biz blows my fucking mind. I literally have no concept of where to start with that and I RECOGNISE THIS AS THE LIMITATION IT IS not as an IMPOSSIBILITY; not even an impossibility for right NOW.

If I wanted to get to 50 mil … or even 10 mil … or even just 200k or 300k a month … and I made up my mind to DEAD SERIOUS do that starting now, all I’d have to do is start changing my idea of NORMAL and ‘who I am’ around it. To me this is obvious and the fact that I’m not doing it just means I haven’t chosen to (aka allowing fear or uncertainty to rule me – more on THAT in a moment as well!), not that I don’t know HOW or that it’s not within REACH.

So anyway. This post.

I saw it straight away as a reminder to GET YOUR FUCKING HEAD IN THE GAME and change your beliefs. So I couldn’t BELIEVE it when the first bunch of comments were all clearly taking the ‘point’ of the post to be that you shouldn’t even be WORRYING about getting to 100k you should be FOCUSING on just getting to 5k, because obviously 100k is not. within. reach.

Is it just me or is that INSANELY limiting thinking?

Now if your GOAL is 5k and that’s your true vision, great. But this was about if you want to make 100k but yet you’re only just starting out you should set your mind on getting to 5k.

To me this is equivalent to saying I want to drive to Vegas but I’ll type in Salt Lake City into the sat nav. It makes no fucking sense! Why not just focus from the get go on where you really want to GO, no matter how far off that goal is?

Maybe the argument here is that 5k is on the WAY to 100k, and you should take your journey one step at a time.

I flat out disagree with this way of thinking.

You might THINK it’s on the way but the strategies and mindset required to get to 5k is completely fucking different to that which you’ll need to get to 100k. You will NOT be on the same path. 100k is not about 20 x 5k. It’s a different MINDSET; why not just start training for the right one – the one you actually WANT – from the start?

You don’t train for a marathon in the same you train to learn how to run for 20 minutes!!

Oh, but you have to start somewhere; is that it??

Sure. START BY REVERSE ENGINEERING FROM WHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO BE.

Anyway.

I want to share another exercise with you which I think will help. If you missed yesterday’s post make sure you check it out (How to Turn on Your Money Switch and Be Shit. Hot. Rich) as I shared a REALLY cool practical exercise on creating massive success with money based on replicating success in other areas of your life.

Today I want to share from the depths of my journals. This is the ACTUAL WORK I did on my own mindset and self-awareness when I first set my own goal to get to 100k a month! And: it worked. Hence me using the same sort of process now to uplevel to my next phase of wealth 🙂

I won’t explain the exercise because it speaks for itself. But I suggest that if you’re serious about changing your financial situation you get to fucking work on this stuff, because if you don’t figure out why you’re NOT where you want to be and you don’t connect to why you’d actually want to really GET there, then guess what?

You won’t fucking get there.

Okay.

{understanding current limitation and true reason until one jumps out at me as YES THIS IS THE REAL REASON}

I’m not making 100k a month because I don’t know how
I’m not making 100k a month because I like the adrenalin of having to hustle and see if I can make it
I’m not making 100k a month because I feel like I don’t really deserve it
I’m not making 100k a month because I don’t really know the point
I’m not making 100k a month because I’m not sure I want to
I’m not making 100k a month because I don’t know how to do it in alignment
I’m not making 100k a month because I’m scared I won’t be able to maintain it
I’m not making 100k a month because it would take too much to get there and it would exhaust me
I’m not making 100k a month because I feel like I wouldn’t have anything to show for it anyway
I’m not making 100k a month because it’s too scary
I’m not making 100k a month because it’s too small!
I’m not making 100k a month because I don’t know how
I’m not making 100k a month because I’m not that motivated too
I’m not making 100k a month because I don’t know if it’s possible to sustain it
I’m not making 100k a month because I’d probably just blow it
I’m not making 100k a month because what do I even need it for; I always make do fine!
I’m not making 100k a month because I’m sick of pushing
I’m not making 100k a month because I value my FREEDOM more than the money!!
Hmmm … okay …
I’m not making 100k a month because I feel like it would trap me in
I’m not making 100k a month because it would detract from my freedom, my true work, my writing
I’m not making 100k a month because I don’t want to have to keep jumping through hoops to do it
I’m not making 100k a month because I would have to be too organised and ‘adult’ to maintain it
(What does that mean??!)
I’m not making 100k a month because I’d have to be more professional
I’m not making 100k a month because I’d have to grow up / buy a house / learn properly about money
Hmmm …
I’m not making 100k a month because I’m worried I’d turn into a normal boring fucking adult with a host of normal boring life responsibilities to maintain and attend to, and I’d lose my free spirit freedom and spontaneity!!
OKAY!!

Okay.

{Belief}

Making a lot of money requires you to do stuff you don’t really want to do … it is a trap … it takes away from who you really are and want to be!!

Fuck!

{Desires outcome / belief}

HOW is it then that I start consistently making 100k a month or more and take good care of my money and wealth whilst maintaining my crazy free spirit, ability to create spontaneously and also be able to keep being who I AM as a sporty / fitness / beach / DIY / do my own thing chick??

{Resetting belief – brainstorming; splashing around ideas until one jumps out at me as YES THIS IS IT}

I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I put creativity ahead of profit – emotionally and mentally first but also practically first, as the first thing I do each day.
I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I get up early enough (530am) to have plenty of space for my creativity and still ‘do my biz’ later in the day.
I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I set up automated income streams that grow and grow and are also BASED on me just showing up and being me (‪#‎thetribeofrevolutionaryfuckingleaders‬)
I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I am disciplined with my daily ‪#‎hustle‬ activities and business growth, which come AFTER creativity / writing is fully complete, and which I set clear boundaries around from a values and time point of view.
I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I know why I want it.
I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I’m connected to my message, my tribe, my creativity daily and I also SELL from that place.
I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I have fucking fun with it!!***
This …
Okay.
I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I do random crazy cool creative shit.
I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I have automated CONSISTENTLY growing income streams (‪#‎tribe‬ / funnel / automated flash sales?? hmmm; need to brainstorm this more) and because as far as the HUSTLE goes I do random crazy cool creative shit as my main “thing” AND because I diligently complete an HOUR a day of business growth / leverage activities, whilst also AUTOMATING THE FUCK out of it as I go, wherever possible, in order to not have to ever repeat tasks that could be replicated.
More.
I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I’m committed to that outcome. Hmmm – yes, but this alone still brings up other stuff about feeling TRAPPED or not being able to be me.
Okay.
I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I provide incredible awesome value and a sense of belonging to a truly KICKASS community! Yes!***
I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I sell stuff that I think is KICKASS awesome and cool!
I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I love the fuck out of my community and believe in them. Yes! This is good stuff!
I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I AUTOMATE THE AWESOME AS I GO. Yessssssssssssss. Okay. NOTE: once I’ve completed something I’m not into having to WORK on it anymore, so need to automate as I GO; hate to ‘have to’ do it afterwards … feel under the thumb with that.

Cool.
NEW FUCKING BELIEF.

I make 100k+ a month in a way that feels awesome and by still FULLY being me because I:
– have fucking fun with it
– provide awesome value and a sense of belonging to a truly KICKASS community
– diligently and with discipline do my daily biz HOUR to grow and leverage my income and reach
– love the fuck out of my community and believe in them
– make ALL THE SPACE for cool creativity and fun and crazinesss FIRST (before biz hour or ANY OTHER STRUCTURED TASKS … this means really I need to have NO appointments in first half of day)
– I sell stuff that I think is KICKASS awesome and cool
– I let myself go with random crazy cool creative shit as my main THING
– The systemisation and automation and ‘biz-niz-y’ side of my biz is very small in terms of how much TIME I put in compared to unleashing my true creative work just how and as I please and also it comes AFTER I’ve done my true work and had a damn fine time merrily creating whatever the hell I feel like!

Okay!

Anything else???
PERMISSION. I give myself PERMISSION to make 100k+ a month by having a damn good free spirit crazy creator time doing what I please and knowing that that is the TRUE value and awesome I have to share with the world … and allowing my biz to also GROW AND BE A “REAL” BIZ simultaneous to this, without it having to detract from ME and my work.

Permission.
Allowance.
CHOICE of basing the whole damn thing on my own particular crazy bitch mayhem approach to life and in fact THAT IS WHAT I REALLY GET PAID FOR, for being me and inspiring others to be who THEY are, in business and in life.**

^^^THIS!!!!!!!!

Also:

{values}
Freedom – DO NOT WANT TO FEEL I AM UNDER THE THUMB OR JUMPING THROUGH HOOPS!
Fun – has to be cool, awesome, fun, for the purpose of CREATING

{feelings / characteristics of this biz and ME!}
empowered … inspired … energised … flying high … adrenalin … taking the world by storm … not fucking backing down on what you stand for or believe in or WANT … following your path from the heart as a creator … providing MASSIVE FUCKING VALUE but the value is what you WANT to provide and of course it’s to the right PEOPLE who see the value in what you OFFER and fucking love you for it!

{additional brainstorming}
Automated income streams (tribe and then DO IT AS WE GO with other stuff … LET GO CONTROL FREAK and let your team do this)
Discipline and automation of daily business activities in a single hour per day (um hello … just fucking do it and follow through!)
Replication / systemisation of tasks (discipline; daily delegation and biz hour)
What currently makes me feel ‘under the thumb’ or trapped and how can I massively minimise that or outsource it or REPLACE or delete it? (Answer: just make it fucking fit in that one hour or it doesn’t get done, AND be disciplined with not doing that hour until full creativity has been unleashed! Delegate or delete RUTHLESSLY)

Over to you now:

How serious are you about reaching your ULTIMATE money goals? Do you HAVE a money goal? Are you working towards your ACTUAL FUCKING GOAL or are you telling yourself you need to take your journey one freaking town at a time?? You CAN do it that way if you want, but who the hell knows what’s going to happen with all that stop starting and if you’ll EVER actually get to your end destination?

Might as well just focus on where you actually want to go now, huh?! I’d love to hear your thoughts on this in the comments.

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.
All in on the TRUE epic awesome ridiculousness and too much-ness of YOU.
