Business Mindset

MAYBE YOU JUST ARE WHO YOU ARE AND YOU SHOULD GET ON WITH IT!

MAYBE YOU JUST ARE WHO YOU ARE AND YOU SHOULD GET ON WITH IT!

I was journaling just now, asking myself for inner guidance on how to move forward with a weird situation which is bothering me. I fully believe that no matter how much you THINK you don’t know how to deal with something, you DO in fact 100% know and have all the answers inside.

All you gotta do is ask, and then LISTEN and TRUST what you hear.

A lot of uncertainty in business and life could be easily dealt with today if only you’d just freaking listen to your SELF!

Anyway, I’m headed off on a tangent and I’ve barely even started!

So I have this problem.
I feel unsure about it.
I feel … out of my power a little bit. It’s unchartered territory for me. I don’t know what to do, I can’t seem to just ignore it or get over it, and it’s just HANGING OVER ME ANNOYING THE FUCK OUT OF ME!

Which is definitely a whole NOTHER thing to talk about, this thing of letting stuff energetically IMPACT you, of letting external forces guide, direct or dominate your inner state!

But first things first:

When I want to know what to do about something, and I genuinely don’t know the practical answers or steps forward and / or it’s a situation where logic doesn’t APPLY, I simply ask myself, in my journal:

What should I do?
What is right?

Often this alone will give me the answer! Like I said, we DO always know what it is we really need to do. But if I feel, as I did today, like there’s still a bit of a fog around it, then I will give myself options.

I wrote down 3 options today, one of which was SURRENDER AND RELEASE and the other two were more action-orientated. Aka not surrendering, so much!!

As I looked at the options, my ‘personal development / coach / wise’ self told me sternly:

“Surrender is ALWAYS the answer, Kat – you know this!”

I do know this … in theory … in a lot of ways … and I think we could ALL stand to surrender and release more often. But I also think that there are no hard and fast rules in success or in life, and that sometimes?

FUCK SURRENDER YOU NEED TO BULLDOZE THE FUCK OUT OF THIS SITUATION, WHETHER OR NOT YOU FEEL LIKE IT OR KNOW HOW, AND CLAIM THE OUTCOME YOU WANT!!

Not that I’m a fan of extremes or anything!

And as I looked at the options I’d laid out for myself in my journal, I just felt, intuitively, which is kind of the whole POINT, that surrender is not the answer here.

I mapped out briefly what surrendering would mean, and I realised it would mean GIVING UP, in this particular case.

It’s easy to take broad concepts which we know are true and right and WISE, and use them as a way to PUSSY FOOT THROUGH LIFE.

Kinda like when somebody says they’re ‘manifesting’ the money to work with you when what they really mean is “I’m flaky as fuck, not doing the work to get my message out there and sell and COMMAND the income and impact I desire, which is definitely one reason I should work with you, but I’m also scared and CHOOSE right now to not have faith in my ability to create a return on investment so I’m going to say something that sounds profound and like I’m ONE of you, when actually those who DO make it would never.fucking.say they’re manifesting ONE DAY (even the next day!) being ABLE to do something or be who they need to be, they would just.fucking.leap”

Or, you know, something like that. I’ve never really thought about it 🙂

Coming back to the surrender and release thing:

There’s a fine line between stepping forward in faith, doing the work no matter HOW uncomfortable, which you know must be done, and THEN surrendering the outcome in the knowledge and trust that you’ve done what you need to DO, versus simply FLAKING THE FUCK OUT and waving your hands around in a floaty and spiritual way and claiming you’re not avoiding you’re SURRENDERING.

Scratch that – there’s NOT a fine line at all. The line is crystal fucking clear and you know EXACTLY which side you’re on.

Be honest, right NOW –

Where are you being FLAKY AS FUCK? Maybe you’re JUST being flaky … or a complete WUSS … or maybe, like I NEARLY did this morning, you’re telling yourself stories about why it’s right to just ‘go with the flow’.

Well, let me tell you:

GOING with the flow does NOT get you the life you want.
You don’t GO with the flow or you’ll end up wherever the fuck the flow decides to take you; often responsive to what every other person around you wants or believes or impresses upon you.

The thing with FLOW is –

You CREATE the flow.
You ARE the flow.
You KNOW, also, by the way, when you’re IN flow as opposed to GOING with some random flow.

And that’s what all of this comes down to, really, isn’t it?

In the areas you’re flaking out –
Refusing to go all in –
Refusing to roll up your sleeves, square your shoulders and grit your teeth and do the WORK –

You forgot that being in flow means leaping when you’re scared.
You forgot that taking such leaps WILL (not might, WILL) result in a requirement for you to have to do shit you’ve not done before –
In a way you’re not used to, don’t feel ready for, don’t know HOW to do –
And with the absolute fucking possibility that you might just FALL ON YOUR FACE AND DIE!

Okay, so that last part probably not but it certainly FEELS that way, doesn’t it? In fact, as far as your Sympathetic Nervous System is concerned, laying yourself on the line and saying yes to not only WANTING what you want but also actively leaping and taking action to CREATE it, feels JUST AS SCARY AS JUMPING OFF AN ACTUAL FUCKING CLIFF!

As far as the inner you is concerned you might as well be facing death!

Part of becoming a person who leaps on repeat and actively DAILY creates what they want in business, in love, in LIFE, is you have to be willing to face your death every day.

Every.
Fucking.
Day.

If you can’t stare into the face of what the WORST POSSIBLE OUTCOME COULD BE if you take that leap, take that chance, risk it, freaking TRY for it, then you’ll simply never get to experience the best that life could be.

You don’t GET to have it all, have the best, live YOUR best, if you’re not willing to risk EVERYTHING and maybe die.

And guess what? Newsflash –

YOU’RE GONNA FUCKING DIE ANYWAY.

May as well be on the right freaking path!

So here is what SURRENDER and RELEASE and LETTING GO and LETTING IT FLOW actually means:

Know what you want, what you really really want.
Understand and accept that it MIGHT NOT BE THE RIGHT PATH FOR YOU AND MAY NEVER HAPPEN.
But HUSTLE LIKE A MOTHERFUCKER TO CREATE IT ANYWAY.
Do what scares you.
Do what’s not COMFORTABLE.
Do what HURTS.
Have the difficult conversations.
Put yourself out there.
Say what you really think.
Risk it ALL CRASHING DOWN.
Do what’s INSIDE of you.
Do what you KNOW you can’t NOT.

In the end, it’s very simple:

How the hell can you surrender an outcome you never even attempted to create?

As I journaled on this whole topic this morning, in slightly less lengthy fashion than how I’m now re-telling the story, as I tried to logically or rationally or with FAKE surrender ideals figure out what I needed to do, as I found myself feeling frustrated and (okay then!!) SCARED at what might happen if I do take the action I KNOW I MUST TAKE, as I tried to find a way around this, a way to avoid the RISK or discomfort, as I tried to journal a wise and profound decision to make and way to move forward, as I found myself using the words, about who I AM and what I therefore KNOW I’M GOING TO DO EVEN THOUGH IT’S SCARY AND GOES AGAINST ALL LOGIC:

“Maybe I need to change that”

And suddenly it hit me:

MAYBE I JUST AM WHO I AM AND I SHOULD GET ON WITH IT.

In the END here is the TRUTH:

You’re not going to do a very good job of being anybody else –
But the real you.

YOU MIGHT AS WELL FUCKING EMBRACE IT, AND LEVERAGE THAT SHIT.

Oh, and also? You DO fucking know what to do.

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