Business Mindset

Is It Possible to Enjoy The Push for Success?

Screen Shot 2013-09-25 at 12.22.01 PM

I sometimes wonder if I would have come as far as I have, had I known how relentlessly tough it would be.

When I started blogging in ’07, it was with a desire to uplevel myself as a personal trainer who offered more than most, as well as with the vague idea that I could ‘get somewhere’ with my writing and finally with the knowledge that online was the way to go, certainly if I wanted to escape trading time for money and become a lifestyle entrepreneur. Whatever that was 🙂

I didn’t have a business plan, an income plan, a strategy or even a blogging plan.

And for most of the time since then I’ve beat myself up about that, imagined how much faster I could have progressed.

But at the same time I can’t help but ask myself –

If I’d known what I was in for, would I have set out on this path? Yes, I now own a multi-national company that generates multiple-6-figures each year and is doubling in profitability annually, but I’ve really only reached that point in the last 18-24 months and it’s not as though I could have predicted it sooner. Both the income, and the lifestyle that goes with it.

And the getting there? Was bloody hard work.

What’s more, the truth is that it still is and still must be. Just for a lot less time each day and a lot more money 🙂

I think at the very least I’d have wanted some sort of guarantee in exchange for my 4-5 years of working my ass off before the money and lifestyle really happened.

So it’s damn lucky that I didn’t have even an inkling how hard it would be; how long it would take, isn’t it?

Now.

I don’t want for a second to imply that in order to create YOUR dream life you must first dedicate 4-5 years – or indeed any particular period of time – to slaving your guts out.

Nor do I want to imply that it was not enjoyable hard work. I love writing. I love creating. I love inspiring and guiding people. But no, I can’t say I loved worrying if I’d ever ‘make it’ as a writer or an entrepreneur, and worry I did on those long days, weeks and months when it seemed at times as though I wasn’t getting anywhere and perhaps never would.

Worry, and also wonder at times if I shouldn’t just go back to what I knew – being a super-busy and super-successful personal trainer.

So here is what I want to say to you, if you’re at a point right now where as much as you love it you’re also scared that it’s not really going anywhere –

Firstly.

It can’t be just about the outcome. You HAVE TO enjoy the journey. If you don’t? Change your attitude or change the path you’re on.

And secondly. Nobody ever promised it would be easy, this success thing; this dream life creation thing. Did they?

And if they did? There’s a damn good chance they’re all talk and no real results.

So let’s talk about you. About your dream. And I’m going to make some basic assumptions. At some point – perhaps even from the very beginning, from before you can remember – you stepped away from following the road well traveled and you decided to take responsibility. To CREATE this beautiful life of yours. To find a way to have the financial, time and joy abundance you desire rather than that which the world dishes out to you.

And even though you knew it wouldn’t just ‘happen’ there was part of you that thought that choosing – heck even knowing you COULD choose – was the really big work. And that now that the choice had been made and that you were COMMITTED to your success, reaching it was a sure thing.

And so you did the work.

You SHOWED UP.

You laid out your goals and dreams in your journal and to friends and you took action every damn day, or close to it.

You did the courses, the inner work, the outer work. Hired coaches. Did research. And you started to create your dreams for your business and life.

Filled with excitement and anticipation of what was to come, what was already underway.

Onward and upward you pressed, ignoring the helpful warnings from family and friends, ignoring your own inner doubts when they occasionally popped up.

PUSHING. Demanding your birthright, your right to live the life you choose.

And then one day, all of a sudden although probably not suddenly at all, that doubting Thomas within you suddenly grew some guts. Because although you tried not to go down this path, you couldn’t help wondering why it was taking so long. Why it had to be so damn hard. Why everyone else was doing so well and you just seemed to be battling to get ANYWHERE.

And whether perhaps your efforts were in total vain anyway. Whether you truly COULD create the sort of incredible life you’d been dreaming of for so long.

And where you’d been flying, unstoppable, filled with energy and inspiration you suddenly started to feel heavy, uninspired, unenthused, and exhausted.

Every day became more overwhelming, less aligned, more of a drain than a delight.

But yet, for some reasons you don’t even fully understand yourself, and despite how obvious it might seem to others to do so, you just couldn’t bring yourself to walk away. Couldn’t, and can’t.

Because the problem with knowing that you do have a choice in how your life plays out?

Is that you know.

And once you know, how can you not keep pushing?

Really, how can you not?

So back you go. Back to dreaming, to journaling, to creating that beautiful vision of yours.

Back to PUSHING.

Because that’s what it’s all about, really, isn’t it?

The push.

And you do it every damn day.

And if you truly refuse to give up, if you INSIST that success and living your dream be yours, then you push even when you don’t feel like it. Even when you’re not inspired. Even when you have no idea how.

And sometimes pushing means being willing to stop, to reflect, to make the tough decisions about what to strive for and what to let go of, and sometimes the pushing is emotional, sometimes mental or spiritual and sometimes even physical, but what it never is and never will be is half-hearted or dependent on ‘hoping for the best’.

What it is about? Pushing is about giving more than you’re able. More than you want to. More than you CAN. It’s about ‘I can’t, I won’t, I don’t know how, but I WILL’

And mostly, if you want to actually live your dreams now, it’s about learning to enjoy the push. To stop waiting for one day. To become one with that pushing rather than to continually fight it.

Yes, even when it’s hard.

Even when it’s relentlessly so.

Even when it HURTS, goddammit it.

And, of course, when it’s so damn good you want to dance down the street, laptop in hand, and your dreams paving the way both before and ahead of you.

I wonder, had I have had a crystal ball, if I would have forged on ahead to this life I’ve created, had I known just how tough it would be. Had I have known just how much that pushing would hurt, would at times tear me apart.

And the truth is of course that I can’t say for certain.

But what I do know is this.

I’m ready to keep pushing baby. I’ve got big dreams still to create.

And by damn am I going to get them out.

So firstly – let’s commit, together, to keep pushing. Creating. Demanding our birthright, and make space for our dreams every damn day.

Secondly, let’s commit to choosing to enjoy the process. You know you can, right?

And thirdly, let’s commit to relentlessly chasing our true dreams not just the ones we think we should settle for.

Because if you’re going to push? You might as well do it for something that counts.

After all –

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!
