Stop Robbing Yourself
We all have things that frustrate us. Greatly, sometimes. Occasionally just for a moment perhaps – a flash of anger at someone pushing past you to cross the road first at a busy intersection, or the irritation of feeling ignored when you’re ready to order in a restaurant. Little things; unimportant things (maybe).
I guess it’s human nature to get fed up with the actions of others, although I’m sure something could be said about how even your smallest frustration simply reflects what’s going on with YOU rather than the other person. And is therefore your issue, and not theirs. And if it really is now and then that things seem to be working against you then perhaps it’s not worth caring about.
But if your life is full of frustrations, of people doing the wrong thing by you or simply doing things the wrong way, of constantly living with a sense of having missed out, lost out, struck out, then I have to tell you –
You are robbing yourself. Yes YOU are robbing yourself of YOUR ability to live a fulfilled and purpose-full life. And painful though it may be to accept that the very vast majority of your problems are in fact YOUR problems – created and manifested; perhaps even unknowingly desired by nobody else – accept it you must nonetheless. Well, only if you want to get hold of that life of your dreams you’re always just missing out on grabbing. Only if you want to start loving the life you live.
You think I’m being fanciful about how the world works? Let me tell you something. A few things, perhaps 🙂
- The person you glare at because of how rudely they shove past you? They don’t even notice. And if they do, they don’t care. Who are YOU, after all?
- The service person who doesn’t serve you in the manner you think acceptable? Whether or not they enjoy their job or are even good at it is really none of your concern. Only YOUR response is.
- Your staff member who just doesn’t care about doing things exactly right? Got it in one – they don’t care as much as you. And nor should they! How can anyone care as much as you about YOUR stuff.
- The boss you resent for not recognising your true talent? They have their own issues. Your happiness is not their concern.
- The partner who just won’t stop doing that annoying thing that they KNOW gets to you? You’re not perfect either sweetie. You can bet your bottom dollar you’re getting to them at times as well. If they let things get to them that is.
- The world that just won’t let you get ahead. Well surely I don’t have to tell you how ridiculous it is to blame the world for your problems?
But here’s the thing. If you think it’s ridiculous to blame the world for your problems (and I hope that you do), how is it any less ridiculous to blame another person? A company?
If you think about it, isn’t it perhaps a little more ridiculous to allow anybody aside from you to have even a hint of power over your life? Your future? Your destiny? It is, isn’t it? Ridiculous, that is.
the future is yours
I started this post saying that maybe the little things that irritate you don’t matter. But I take it back. You see, I’m a big believer in little actions determining big outcomes. And that little habit you have of turning your nose up at other people’s silliness, or poor standards, or yes even plain downright rudeness? It’s a habit of letting yourself be governed by other people. You think it’s just for a moment? You think it’s not such a big deal?
How many moments have there been?
And how quickly are you getting on track with loving the life you live in between? Does your habit of constantly reacting to things allow you to see the good in the world, and all the possibilities in store for you, or does it cause you to be slower, more resigned, more resentful? If somebody else were to predict what sort of person you’ll be in your retirement years, would they say happy, carefree, surrounded by love and success?
And you – what do you predict? That the world is against you, or that it’s yours for the taking?
It’s a choice, isn’t it? Be sure to make it a deliberate one.
After all –
I kinda sorta did something REALLY not ideal! I made a mistake 😞
I then found about that mistake a day or so ago, when one of my amazing clients let me know!
I then fixed it of course, but since then something has been nigglin’ away at me telling me that maybe the mistake was a SIGN and a DIRECTION and I shoulda fixed it the other way!!
What am I talking about? My Easter Extravaganza Instant Manifestation Bundle, which is supposed to close TODAY in just a few hours, and contains 4 of my BEST money and manifestation courses, over 85% off!
As we do, we threw this thing together last minute like usual (aka KAT style) – and somehow managed to put THE WRONG PRICE on the sales page!!! ♀️
– Correct price on order form, when you actually click the buttons.
– Incorrect price on sales page. Doh.
The one on the SALES page was lower, about 25-30% lower than the already reduced 85% off! I think what happened is we copy and pasted off an old previous bundle sales page and so the old price just carried over.
Anyway, a few people pointed it out and obviously we honoured the mistaken lower price while fixing the page for future peeps.
BUTTT … I just felt ugh about it, y’know? Even though the lower price was a mistake! And even though the actual price was literally already 85% off for this offer!
It wouldn’t stop bugging me.
So, long story short, I’m changing it!
My Easter Extravaganza Bundle is now over NINETY PERCENT reduced … for anyone who already bought and paid full we will honour the lower price for you as well of course (watch out for an email later today!) and for everyone who has NOT yet, the price has now been adjusted on the sales page, DOWN!
And, because of the muck around and confusion, I’m extending my bundle sale for one more day into Easter Tuesday 🐣
Jump on now and grab four of my best Money and Manifestation courses now at 90% off, next 24 hours ONLY!!! 💥
Literally just as I finished writing this my brother walked in to my room with my (fixed!) phone. OF COURSE. Everything always works out in my favour. Just like I told ya. And just in time to snap a quick pic for this blog.
Get it! One more day! Lessssgooooo, now 90% off! https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/katrina-ruths-easter-bundle/ —> this price is CRAZY! Extra crazy!!
I wrote half of that with my eyes closed while having makeup done. #ninjaAF
