Live Your Passion

Take a Deep Breath and Look Your Inner Demons in the Eye

let-go

In personal development there is a tremendous amount of attention right now on manifestation and ‘getting what you focus on’. We’ve learned that the more we apply ourselves to creating a detailed vision of the life we want to create, the more likely we are to achieve that life.

I believe this to be true, wholeheartedly.

Daily visioning, journaling and dreamlining (along with a hefty amount of action taking) is how I have achieved so many amazing things in my own life and business, particularly over the last 2 years. In that timeframe I’ve gone from making a few grand a month online to high five figure months being the norm. I expect that this year I’ll cross the 6-figure mark for my monthly income. I’ve also gone from working full-time with clients and being in constant burn-out, commuting from a house I downright hated and felt embarrassed by, to living in a stunning beach-side apartment with nearly 360 ocean views, and working generally 4-5 hours a day, 4-5 hours a week. Come June of this year we’re taking off for 2 years or so of endless travel, starting in Germany where I spent my teens – I can’t wait!

These are some of the ‘big ticket items’ I’ve created using manifestation + hard work. But there’s so much more to it than that stuff. I write in my journal pretty much daily. I absorb personal development blogs and books like they’re essential to my survival. I associate as much as possible with people who believe in my big dreams and have crazy-ass big dreams of their own. I pay for expensive coaching so that I can learn from and be inspired by the best.

In short, I point myself daily in the direction of the life I want to achieve.

Creating Your Dream life: What Do You Want to Be? Do? And have?

One of the things I do every few months is I write down my ‘be’, ‘do’, ‘have’ list. Everything I want to be, do and have within the next 6 months. It’s an exercise I learned from Tim Ferriss and have used for years. Each time I create a new list, I look back at some of the old and I am without fail blown away at how 70-80% of it has come true. Every freaking time y’all. And I’m not just talking little stuff, as the ‘brag’ paragraph above will attest.

Using this technique, here are some of the things that have changed in my life –

I’ve become a more fun Mum
I saved up for and bought a designer handbag
I escaped from the clutches of bulimia and developed a relationship with food and my body that I am proud of
I shifted my work-mode from constant stress and burnout to working from a place of purpose, passion, calm and flow
I got in shape for a bikini photo-shoot
I fell pregnant with our second child and had a healthy baby (if a very complicated and scary pregnancy, but even throughout that I used manifestation and visioning to work past it)
I started a savings account and for the first time since my early twenties saved consistently
I published my first book and became a best-selling author
I created (and am in just 3 days launching!) my Dream Life Academy Online Bootcamp – my biggest life’s passion and calling, and a project I’ve managed to distract myself from for 3 years due to fear and self-doubt!)
I’ve worked with first-class business coaches
I’ve joined the ‘inner circle’ of some amazing 6 and 7-figure female entrepreneurs and become close friends as well as mastermind buddies
I’ve been invited to speak on several fantastic telesummits, speaking my message of living life on your terms

I look at this list (and it’s just a small percentage of what I could write!) and I am absolutely awed and humbled. It is just incredible what you can create in your life when you make a decision to follow your dreams, to believe even when you feel that you can’t, to deal with whatever you have to face along the way, and to do what you have to do every day to get there. The truth is I usually forget what I put on my ‘be, do, have’ dream lists and it’s not until I go back and look at earlier versions that I get that goosebump moment as I realise that everything I’m living NOW I asked for earlier.

But.

Where I am now in my life is wonderful, it gets better each day and I’m so thankful. And yet at the same time I’m frustrated that I feel there are certain areas I can’t break through. That frustration has recently turned to curiosity, which I’m certain is a better feeling to harbour 🙂

I just wrote myself a little note, asking the following –

“What do I still desire in my life in order to feel that I’m completely on purpose and in love with who I am and how I live?”

Kinda like my ‘rest of my life bucket list’. I don’t mean down to the details of all the adventures I want to have, things I’d like to try my hand at and so on. I’m talking the BIG stuff. You know what? Rather than try to recap it for you, here’s an exact copy, including my initial ‘date’ journal entry so you can see how I started on this train of thought 🙂

January 18, 2014

God. Soon it will be 2020. Time is passing. I’m becoming more and more proud of how I do spend it.

What is left to work on? Well, there’s always evolution; the constant evolution of being more true to me.

To really do this writing thing, give it my all.
To develop a STRONG spiritual connection.
To be a more engaged mother. A more fun and loving wife.
To be financially free, truly and abundantly wealthy, and empower others to do the same.
And of course lots of travel and adventure, seeing the world. Making a difference. Helping people. Giving it my all.

It’s not a long list! And it’s exciting because it all feels so in reach. It feels almost a little wrong, but yet perfectly okay. I can really get there. I really am there, really. It’s just filling in the gaps. It’s quite mind boggling.

As I looked at what I wrote, even though it excited me with its possibility, I knew there was something missing. I wasn’t addressing my fears. And the truth is I’ve become so good at focusing on what I DO want that I largely ignore what I DON’T want.

Now believe you me, one of the very worst things you can do if you desire your dream life is to focus on what you don’t want! You get what you focus on; where your attention goes energy flows.

But there’s a difference between harbouring or even fueling thoughts of scarcity, stress, lack and between simply acknowledging your fears. Acknowledging your deepest fears is like looking into the eye of the beast. It is a truly terrifying thing to do and generally we (consciously or not) do everything within our power to avoid it. It’s so much nicer to focus on what we can or ‘should’ be doing to create GOOD stuff in our life than to think even for a moment really openly about the stuff we are scared might happen.

But if you’re going to truly quit the B.S, deal with your sh*t, and finally start living the life you damn well know you deserve (which is exactly what my Dream Life Academy Bootcamp is about by the way!), then you’re going to have to deal with this stuff.

And if you don’t admit to yourself what you’re really scared of then how in God’s good name are you going to deal with it?!

In my ‘7 Steps to Living Your Dreams‘ free video Step 4 is ‘Deal’. You cannot and will not achieve your dreams if you’re not willing to deal.

I know this. I teach it. But yet I’m just like anyone else, I do worry that my deepest fears might come true. I do a great job at creating and moving forward despite this. But some of this stuff just eats away at you, you know what I’m saying? That stuff? That’s the beast. That’s the demon you need to look at square in the eye, and then FIGHT until it exists no more. It’s a battle you absolutely can and will win. But not if you keep pretending the problem’s not there. And as I wrote my ‘what is left to do in my life’ list (which sounds God! so arrogant framing it like that, but you know what I mean :)) I realised that it was time for me to take a deep breath, feel the fear, and then face it – or them – anyway.

Okay, let’s be brutally honest. What are my greatest fears?

Time. Feeling like I’ll never have enough time to do it all. As though for the rest of my life I’ll feel I’m playing catch up and can’t afford to slow down, let alone rest.
Money. What if I never get on top of my credit card debt, what if it just keeps growing? What if my cashflow just STOPS?
Family. What if I look back and realise I didn’t spend enough time with them, that I was a push-away mother and wife, not a pull-to one.
God. What if I never have the courage to create the spiritual connection I desire.
My other (growing up) family. What if I lose closeness with them?

This is IMPORTANT to me. This is my life.

It’s simple stuff. But oh so freaking big and scary. And the simple but oh-so-big stuff, the stuff that is SO deeply important to you that you often don’t face it and instead focus on all of the secondary stuff that allows you to more easily feel a sense of success?

That’s the stuff that if you deal with it will allow you to look back on not just a day or a year but your entire LIFE and be proud.

We’ve all heard the story of the man on his deathbed, who when asked what he regrets most, said not spending time with his family, and working so hard.

None of us want to be that person.

But yet we allow ourselves to be pulled along day by day by our own lies about what will fulfill us or make us ‘enough’.

I don’t want to look back and see business success, writing success, speaking success, travel and adventure success, ANY ‘success’ if at the end of my life (or even at the end of today actually, now that I think about it!) I can’t also look back and know that I enjoyed the moments as they passed.

That I took time to stop and just be. That I had a truly amazing relationship with my children and husband, one I can be proud of, one that I know I prioritised on a high level. That I took the time to maintain and nurture relationships with the other people in my life who I love. That I answered the call of God, which is something I’ve been pushing away for a very long time; scared of what it would mean to fully embrace my spirituality. That I created and passed on a legacy of true wealth and abundance, in all areas. And yes, that I left my mark in a big way through my writing and my speaking but also no – that I did not do so at the expense of these other things.

These are my greatest fears.

I’m stating them because I am ready, as of right now, to stand up and take ownership for dealing with them. I refuse to be that person looking back with regret and sorrow – even for another day – that I bought into any sort of lie about what I have to sacrifice in order to have success, even in order to live my dream life.

And I’ll be damned if I’m going to let those demons lurk within me any longer.

So my question to you is this.

How about you? Will you take a deep breath. Square your shoulders. Lift your head up and grit your teeth. Look your inner demons full in the eye and join me in kicking their mother-fucking asses.

Life is Now beautiful! And it’s time to 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!!

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!

This workshop is off the HOOK already, and we haven’t even accounted for all the random shiz which will be coming out of me!!
