Success Mindset

I WAS SEDUCED. BLINDED. GOT CARRIED AWAY. AND THEN I WOKE UP.

This is a post about loving the work.

It’s a post about loving the game, the process, the pushing forward and also –

The falling down, because the more you fall down and then DO get back up again the more you learn about who you are, and who most everybody else simply is NOT.

It’s a post about the hustle, the grind, the doing of what it takes, sure, but mostly?

It’s a post about being one of those incredibly rare few who can not only SAY they were born for it but can actually back it up, on repeat, and who also actively WANT to back it up, on repeat.

Not because they’re trying to prove something or need to get some kind of ‘original maker, creator, entrepreneur, leader’ award, but because the truth is that ALL they ever wanted to do?

Was the work.

Before we begin though, a step back. For perspective. For awareness. And also? For 99 out of 100 people who read this to move the fuck along and perhaps finally realise –

WHAT WE DO HERE IS NOT FOR YOU.

And that’s okay … you don’t have to be like us!

So stop pretending. Why WOULD you, anyway?

Just go be who you are.

It’s okay to be who you are!

Person who wants to avoid work.

#onyourhorse

Okay.

That was all I meant, by a step back

Still here? Cool … let’s do this! The gift I’m being told to give to YOU, the born for it creator, today, is this:

“The Deal”

You have this thing inside of you.

IT’S ALWAYS BEEN THERE.

You ALWAYS knew you’d be the one to work while they all play. (I mean … play is work is work is play … I know. But you get what I’m saying!)

Is this because you should, because you could, because somebody or something convinced you that it would ‘get’ you places?

No.

It’s because you can’t not.

Because when you ignore that call you fall apart.

You become slowed –
Thickened –
Bloated –
Depressed –
Angry –
And worse.

When you were a kid, you did normal kid things and you enjoyed it. But your mind, it never stopped working.

Maybe you could START A CLUB?
Maybe you could make little ornaments from sticks and stones and SELL them?
Maybe you could wheel and deal your old stuff on the schoolyard?
Maybe you could charge people to LISTEN to or WATCH you?
Maybe you could sneak past your parents the fact that when your bedroom door was closed for hours and nobody was allowed in it was because you had 2000 envelopes you were stuffing and mailing for some Get Rich Quick scheme you REALLY BELIEVED IN.
And WHEN COULD YOU GET AN OFFICIAL JOB ALREADY? Back when you wanted a ‘job’ job because anything that allowed the hustle was a good thing! 10 years old? 11? No? Okay, you’d just lie about your age; simple!

You did all those things, and more. You can still remember how SURE you were of every great new idea, and how some of them actually worked!

The thing is … for you this stuff WAS play. People call it work, and I said this is a post about loving work, and we need to use that word because it’s what people understand and it draws that line in the sand but the whole fucking POINT is –

It’s doing what we love.

The point is also this:

We are the ones who LOVE to do the ‘do’. We ARE, INHERENTLY, the ones who love to do the do.

To create.
To put together.
To market.
To sell.
To pull off whatever our latest hare-brained scheme is.
Whatever the DO of the day IS.

What this means, by definition, is that when we are simply BEING … we are doing.

HUSTLIN’ baby, with purpose, every day, to create the ultimate piece of art of all –

The life we dream of.
The dream which never stops evolving.
The ‘next thing!’ which comes knocking at the door of our hearts, and says – ‘here I am; today’s idea! USE me’.

Which brings me to why I write this post, today, for you.

I was seduced.

Blinded.

Got carried away.

AGAIN.

And I’m concerned that THIS MIGHT BE HAPPENING TO YOU TOO.

There’s all this popular stuff online at the moment, about doing less. About flow. About just ‘being’. About receiving simply by, well, breathing.

Here’s my take:

Do less of shit you don’t wanna do, are not called for, and which is really, when all is said and done, NOT YOUR JOB. Aka – not what you know you’re SUPPOSED to be doing.

Do WAY less of that shit; ideally do none of it.

That’s what you pay other people for, or, if you choose to not be there yet, you just don’t DO it, and it doesn’t GET done.

Trust me – the more you ignore the shit you’re not supposed to do and just do what you want and are CALLED to, the faster things work.

This is PRECISELY how I built my business to multiple 7-figures a year where I can now PAY people to do anything I do want done.

If you’re going to do less of things you don’t wanna do or are not meant to, you CAN therefore do MORE of things you do wanna do.

Just saying.

So, I like to focus on the positive and for me the positive there is DO MORE. Yes! Create more, make more, LET MORE OUT!

Now to flow –

Flow means – being carried away. Lost within yourself. Connected to whatever source it is you allow yourself to connect to. No idea of time … very little of space … and very likely you are no longer even actually HERE, on this earth, except for your physical shell.

THAT’S WHAT FLOW IS.

Suffice to say … I would hope … this is not by definition exclusionary of hustle | work | ‘doing’.

There seems to be some confusion there

Next – this is REALLY popular right now! I’ve spoken of this a lot myself, too. Just ‘being’. Just be you and make money! Get paid to just be you! Simply BE, and RECEIVE, in return for said being.

Cool, cool, but who are you BEING?

Is that of VALUE?

WHY?

And if it’s true, it’s because at some point, you most definitely DID SOME THINGS. Which resulted in creation. Or learning. Or growth. Or connection. Etc.

It’s fascinating to me how the ‘don’t do’ people seem to forget this. No, you didn’t just come out of the womb and sit there. YOU DUG IN. No doubt with a combination of inner work as well as more practical ‘action’ taking.

But maybe some people REALLY DON’T WANNA DO ANYTHING, they JUST want to be and also receive.

That’s fine. For this to work, there always gets to be a value exchange. So, figure out what the value exchange is, and you’re good to go!

Totally okay.

Now let’s talk about the ‘good to go’ piece.

What I’ve found of late, and if I think back it’s certainly true that this has shown up before, hence me saying seduced and blinded and carried away AGAIN, is that there are people out there –

(And I know this might shock you so by all means sit yo’ ass DOWN first!) –

Who DON’T LIKE WORKING.

I know.

It’s MIND-boggling.

And sad.

But true nonetheless, as much as it seems really hard to figure out HOW!

My personal take on this is that these people are either drugged (numbed by life, I don’t mean ON drugs usually), or deluded, or they have bought into one of two lies:

1) That work is inherently a BAD AND SCARY THING TO BE AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS. Not good for you, and the entire point of life is to evolve to where you don’t have to work, and can just BE.

2) That the stuff they personally love to do is titled ‘play’ and not work.

Oh, and one more lie, relevant to point #1 –

That just ‘being’ by definition means NOT working … which I find to be a non-sensical idea similar to the idea that hustle can’t be inherent in flow.

The truth is that while I’m curious, and I do understand what they THINK they think, I don’t really give a fuck about what OTHER people’s reasons for not wanting to work might be.

If they REALLY REALLY don’t want to work and they want to find a way to NEVER create, NEVER build, NEVER have a million amazing balls in the air as they push and go and yes to see where it all ends up, good luck to them.

And I mean that.

Nobody said we all should be the same!

But let’s be clear –


THOSE ARE NOT OUR PEOPLE.


They are not MY people.
They are also, I’ve found, people who, if I allow them to infiltrate my space – which I do from time to time, because I sometimes engage in the belief that I should FIND IN OTHERS what is not there in ME, and somehow ADD it to me, rather than simply accepting who I AM, and calling in people who encourage me to be MORE of it –

Well. They ultimately suck the ever-loving joy out of me.

That’s on me! Not them.

But let’s call a spade a spade; their very EXISTENCE drains me. So, they should exist elsewhere; not near me. Simple

SOME of these people are very very good though, at seducing you. At convincing you that what you’ve ALWAYS known to be true about you is WRONG, or bad.

Often, the means they will use to do this includes some form of ‘oh, poor you’ … thinking you have to WORK.

Coupled with a higher-and-mightier-than-thou stance on how the ‘no work’ approach is more evolved.

Of course the truth is we are only EVER carried away by somebody or something if we want to be. So, it’s ALWAYS on us! And here is my take on WHY that happens, WHY we find ourselves somewhat cyclically buying into another way than the way our soul KNOWS is right, for us –

It’s because it allows us the incredible and wonderful opportunity to RE-CONNECT AT A DEEPER LEVEL WITH OUR SOUL.

YES, it first typically results in a downward spiral of energy, certainty, personal power, and often most every area of life just starts feeling like QUICKSAND. That part’s not fun; I know!

But after that?

After the seduction?

After the blindfold is lifted?

After you NOTICE how carried the fuck away you were and suddenly sit up in shock?

After you wake the fuck UP, and remind yourself of who you are and how you actually LOVE being that person?

You remember:

Life is Now. And You Are HERE to Press Fucking Play.

And then you go back to doin’ it.

So, y’know …

Go back to doing it.

The thing you actually always loved to do.

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.

REBEL MILLIONAIRE

Starting January 18th!

For those who were born to run the damn thing,

To turn the world on its head and dance on top of it,

And who are ready to do just that.
