Stop Waiting for Fucking Inspiration!

Stop Waiting for Fucking Inspiration!

You do know how ridiculous you’re being, right?

This idea that you have to wait until you feel ready … prepared … excited … INSPIRED!

Is completely.

Fucking.

Ridiculous.

I mean only if you actually want to see anything change of course!

If you’re happy to wait –

Stay where you are now –

Stay stuck –

Frustrated –

Unfulfilled –

Bored –

And most likely BROKE!

Then by all MEANS.

SPEND the next 10 years waiting around, just like you’ve done the last (which may be a LITTLE harsh, but truthfully now, how many BIG dreams did you have 10 years ago that are STILL JUST DREAMS??) and maybe at some point when God has DIVINED it you’ll receive a scroll handed down by a cherub to tell you that NOW is your time and you can get STARTED!

Of course the only freaking problem with that is that even if it DID happen (and you do know cherubs are terrifying towering creatures in real life right, not chubby babies?!) you would STILL probably bitch and moan that you’re not ready yet, not sure yet, need to figure some stuff out still, need to be INSPIRED first!

But I mean, I hear ya sister –

I’ve got stuff I still want to accomplish, stuff I’m dreaming about, stuff I’m just not QUITE ready yet to do (even though I’m sometimes pretty good at lying to myself and TELLING myself I’m taking action on it!).

And I don’t know why – it’s freaking weird is what it is! – but for some reason every year I don’t take action on these big dreams they don’t come to life!

MAJOR foot stamp!

I want to run MEGA big events and speak on a HUGE stage, but it just hasn’t happened yet!

I want to have my own magazine, but I just haven’t quite pulled it together yet!

I want a “full on” book business, making 10, 20, 30k a month just from my books, but y’know, I just can’t seem to find the time to promote them properly, to write more, to really get the word out there and BESIDES I don’t really know how!

Maybe it will just HAPPEN if I keep waiting long enough! You never know, right!

I want to have over 100k in savings but I just can’t seem to grow it … I keep building it up and then taking it back out again. Ridiculous, considering my income (mind you the constant awesome travel does not suck!). I guess one day I’ll just MAGICALLY watch my savings grow!

I want to be one of the world’s leading transformational, motivational EMPOWERING authors, speakers and leaders, but THAT is a huge goal right there and I really just don’t know how to do it!

I want some of my silly fun ideas to come to life, for my writing, for things I want to do in my business, just to bring the BEAT back again, but I just don’t have time right now. I’m a busy lady, I got shit to DO!

I want to have a better relationship with my husband, but right now it’s damn near impossible to even get within arms distance of each other (2 kids in the bed!) and I don’t have time to really spend with him in the evenings because I (let’s be honest, prefer rather than watching TV or even movies) am working. Maybe all our problems will just dissolve and we’ll just FLOW together!

I guess one day I’ll figure all this stuff out, right?!

This?

This is true stuff I’m sharing with you right now.

This is MY accountability for today, my REMINDER that anything I SAY I want that I’m not actively taking action on?

IS NOT HAPPENING AND NEVER WILL HAPPEN, unless something BIG changes.

But here’s what else I know.

And this is a real kicker!

You want inspiration?

I got inspiration.

Fact:

For every year I spent waiting to be inspired to become an author I DID NOT IN FACT BECOME AN AUTHOR.

Wait, hold the phone, I hear you saying! For REAL Kat?! Well that’s just fucking unfair is what that is! You’re a good writer (why thank you!) … you SHOULD be a writer!

I know, right?

RIDICULOUS.

The world didn’t know what it was missing out on!

But here’s another fact for ya, since we’re talking data.

This one’ll knock your pretty little socks off!

The year that I DID writer a book, and also take the leap and PUBLISH the damn thing, I BECAME AN AUTHOR.

Who’d have thought?!

I mean just THINK of the odds!

So lucky!

Hmmmm …

You want more facts, more inspiration?

I can keep going.

Over the past year or so while traveling the world long-term due to the awesomeness of my business I’ve struggled to stay in the shape I like to be in.

Told myself –

Don’t have time for ‘proper workouts’.

Tired due to travel.

Too hard to eat properly.

I’ve still gone through the MOTIONS of eating well and working out, and the results of THAT have been – shockingly – what one might expect. Namely, I’ve fattened up like a turkey at Thanksgiving; gaining probably 10 pounds just in the past 2 months.

No fair! Why doesn’t God understand I don’t have more time, I’m too tired, it’s not PRACTICAL and just KEEP ME LEAN ALREADY!

3 weeks ago I decided, that’s it. This is NOT going to continue.

I started doing half an hour of basically flat out chasing the kids and jumping around with them each day. COMMITTED to MAKING it work to get to the gym. Committed to eating greens at least 3x a day.

6-7 pounds, gone already. Abs on their way baby!

Was I inspired? No! Was I ready to see some CHANGE? Yes! Am I inspired now? You bet your ass baby!

And that’s the thing, isn’t it –

If you want INSPIRATION then you take ACTION. Inspiration flows from action! I’ve been listening to some audio trainings by Ali Brown, and I nearly spit out my protein shake laughing the other day when she said the following –

“I don’t think I’ve ever had a single client tell me that they just had so much money in the bank, and felt so ready, and had so much free time that they thought well I better start my business now!”

So true, right?

So why do we all think WE are the freaking exceptions where it’s okay to wait to pursue our big dreams until the stars line up, the virgins sing, and a dancing goat wearing a bow-tie tells us it’s time?

It’s time to wake up sisters.

We got WORK to do.

And I can tell you that EVERYTHING I’ve achieved in my life happened because I went forth in faith not because I freaking WAITING to be ready, to be organised, to feel inspired, to have the time or the inclination or the God damn inspiration.

You want some ULTIMATE inspiration.

YOU’RE GOING TO DIE.

ONE DAY IT WILL BE TOO LATE.

And that day, that MOMENT, could happen any time.

So for the love of God STOP trying to PLAY God with your life. You want the stuff you say you want then you get to work TODAY.

It’s your only time gorgeous.

Had I have waited for inspiration, or for anything else, not only would I not be a multiple times best-selling author right now but I also would not have even started a business! I would not have then made my first $$ in that online business (sure wasn’t ready to launch that first e-book!) nor would I have made a dime since.

EVERYTHING I’ve launched in my business I have in some way pushed myself to do, particularly in that first part of getting the ball rolling.

I’d also not have children (wasn’t ready for that, DECIDED to do it anyway based on where I was in my life and what I wanted!).

Would not be living location free and seeing the best the world has to offer (wanted to do it but couldn’t AFFORD it, couldn’t even afford groceries at the time we committed to leaving. Decided to do it anyway, somehow. Did it, somehow. Exploded, somehow, since then … funny what happens when you commit to your dreams!).

Would not have come 10th nationally in a yoga competition, one of my proudest achievements ever because it was SO outside my comfort zone. Did it, because I did it.

Would never have quit bulimia, have spoken publically about it, shared my story to help others. Sure as HECK was not ready for any of that. Decided to do it anyway.

Wouldn’t have a column on the Huff Post, or various other places I write for. I’m never ready to submit guest posts! Hate it before I do! So happy after I do!

Wouldn’t be getting to go back to Melbourne in a few weeks to visit my family, just me and the kids, because I miss my siblings, parents, and all my nephews and nieces so much. (I don’t think I’ll EVER feel inspired about the idea of 2 x 23 hour flights with just me and a 1 and 5 year old! … but I wanted the OUTCOME).

And there you have it, in a nutshell.

The only question you ever need to ask yourself –

Do you want the outcome?

And if you do then honey? Enough fucking around already. Either make it happen, now, or swipe it right off that dream board of yours. Seriously … take your vision board crap, because unless you’re actually WORKING on each and every one of those visions (and working does not mean THINKING about it, it means putting money, time, effort into it) then IT’S NOT YOUR VISION.

You want to know what your true vision is, what you’re MAKING matter?

The stuff you did yesterday.

The day before.

The day before that.

And so on.

And the stuff that you will also do today, unless you decide to change NOW and you also then DO SO NOW – no NOT tonight, you can fuck OFF with I’ll be ready tonight / tomorrow / this week because that is what people who FAIL ad INFINITUM say.

I know –

That if as of today –

I start spending 2 hours a day on my writing and books. Find the time! There is always time to be found if you truly prioritise it!

And I start actually spending time with my husband and showing love.

And I dedicate let’s say 30 minutes a day to finding SOMETHING to do to grow my reach and brand so I can be known on a BIG scale.

And I actually get back to my magazine designer, lock in a launch date, publicise it.

And I start putting even a LITTLE money each week in a savings account I actually can’t touch.

And I book in that event I want to make happen, and just starting working on it.

Then all my dreams, a year from now, will be as true as they ever can be, and probably better.

That’s fact baby.

And inspiration? Well it’ll come, for sure, motivation will come also (and then go, as it does, at times!) but none of this will happen if I continue to WAIT, to PREPARE, to be READY.

So, a quick reality check for you.

As if this weren’t enough 🙂

Success happens on the battlefield.

Be okay with that.

You want to avoid getting hurt, wounded, torn, avoid having things not work, avoid falling down, avoid looking or feeling like an idiot?

Then stay on the sidelines where you’ve been for so long, where most prefer to remain.

But you want the OUTCOME?

Then enter the fray baby!

Do the WORK!

Get prepared to FIGHT!

And wait for the glory as well, because I promise you. I PROMISE you.

That if you would just step forth in faith?

There’s a helluva destiny waiting for you.

But if you want it?

Then YOU have to go claim it.

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.
