The Secret To Getting What You Want Out Of Life

success-sign

It’s just so easy in day-to-day life to focus on our own interests, isn’t it? On the quest for success at work, at home, in the gym, in our relationships. And the overriding message out there seems to be that getting ahead requires you to keep your mind on your own needs. If you don’t look out for number one, who will? Especially when you’re trying to juggle what is likely at least 3 full days worth of activities and stress in any given 24-hour period.

The influences we have on television and in the media don’t really lead us to think any other way either. Reality TV is all about winning, about knocking out the competitor in order to get to the top. Any cleverly worded sales pitch or advertising campaign will straight away show you the “what’s in it for me element”. We’ve learnt that being able to do it all or have it all requires putting ourselves first at all times. And certainly if we’re going to be able to reach all our goals we need to put constant effort into them, don’t we? Even if it does occasionally mean we have to cancel on a friend, skip some quality time with our family, or – god forbid – listen to someone else’s woes for any length of time.

It seems that the faster our lives become the more we drift away from the concept of community and into the idea that ‘it’s all about me’.

It wasn’t always this way. John Kennedy (certainly one of the 20th century’s greatest success stories) said “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country”. These weren’t just empty words, and nor were they a new idea. In the Bible, when Jesus’ disciples asked him the secret to wealth and greatness he told them it is “to serve the many”.

So how does that work?

Well it’s not necessarily about volunteering all your free time for charity work, and nor is it about offering to take on your colleagues’ project. But maybe, just maybe, it’s about considering the idea that in order to reach our own goals and get what we want out of life, we can stop once in a while and help others get what they want. Of course, it’s a concept that comes naturally to some, but still easily forgotten amongst life’s many busy turns.

As a Personal Trainer for the past decade my focus has always been on building a successful business that expands both in and out of the gym. And although it’s ever-changing and I constantly set new goals, I think I’ve done a pretty good job at achieving this. The funny thing with Personal Training is that you simply can’t be successful without focusing on others. It’s all very well for me to set my mind on achieving a certain income, or introducing new services, or even building a successful blog, but the very thing that’s enabled me to do all this is helping others. Were I to ever forget about the people – about you and your needs – the business would be over. And I hadn’t really thought about this until recently. By nature I’m a pretty selfish person. But on those occasions when I do give up my own needs, or even just my time for someone else, it’s a pretty great feeling.

Making a commitment to support and build other people up is easily done in just about any area of your life. And the best part is that it’s easy to create your own success as an outcome of this.

Want to improve your fitness and lose some weight? Make a commitment to help a friend be accountable with their own exercise and eating program. Exercise together, set goals together, follow-up on their progress when you don’t see them, and just watch your own motivation and commitment change. The Bible also says that “when two or three come together with purpose, then nothing can stop them”. And it certainly sounds easier than constantly going things on your own, doesn’t it?

Trying to get ahead in your career? Go above and beyond every once in a while. Offering to do the gritty tasks or the extra hours isn’t a smart plan if you do it every day and turn into a doormat, but holding up your hand to help your boss or co-workers out during a busy time highlights you in only the best possible way.

If you think about it this way, the sales people have it right when they focus on the “what’s in it for me”. The trick is simply to be one of the people who focuses on others, not one of those who constantly asks what is in it for them.

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my 12 month private client mastermind.

This is THE most badass high level mastermind in the world for women who want it all – and are prepared to do what it takes to get it! Really what we’re talking about is being prepared to be the PERSON.

And that’s what I do. I help you remember ALL that you were, and then become it. ALL Of it.

This is my highest level private mentoring circle. The exact place where I have personally mentored dozens of this industry’s most elite female entrepreneurs to break income barriers ranging from 10k months to multiple 7 FIGURE months, and everything in between. But more importantly than that – to become who and what they always were.

But know that this is not only (obviously) not just for the masses, this is also not just for someone who can afford to invest in a high level private coach. Being willing to throw money down is something which has absolutely zero correlation to being somebody who has what it takes to TRULY go next level as a leader.

If anything, in this industry, investing in a high level coach such as myself, is a rite of passage which veers just a little too much on the side of ‘trend’. It’s become something which ‘everybody does’, almost as a way of proving they play business and life a certain way.

Maybe even of trying to prove it to themselves.

Here is the reality which those who I am truly here to personally mentor and lead KNOW, the reality which my clients and all women like me as well as of course me personally have ALWAYS known:

We are VERY VERY DIFFERENT.

We are simply, smarter, faster, and have more presence. We can do more in our minds before breakfast than what most people can do in a freakin’ WEEK, a month, a year.

We are not basic ass coaches trying to heave ho our way up a few extra thou a month.

We are the ones who have ALWAYS known we are 1% within the 1% within the 1% in terms of how we think, create, operate, how and WHAT we are tapped in too.

This is not arrogance, this is fact.

And there has NEVER been any question but that we will go all the way.

My clients are high level badasses who do the work, who have a proven track record BEFORE coming to me, and a BEING-ness which unquestionably separates them from the rest. They don’t come to me to save them or lean down and hold my hand out so they can clamber up. They come because they are, quite simply, ready to go to the next level, already absolutely on their WAY there, and see in me something which they recognise because it is in them.

That ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ fire, and a level of ‘unapologeticness’ which, when truly understood and applied, can literally be the difference between 5-figure or low 6-figure and 7 or multi-7-figure entrepreneur.

So if you know who you are and it is THAT –

And you feel certain that you are ALREADY well on your way to to precisely where you’re meant to be, but that being in MY energy could help you to drop in and get there even faster, and that with a couple of simple tweaks your current revenue could be doubling, tripling, heck QUADRUPLING and beyond in months, as it has done with numerous of my clients previously, well then –

PM me here http://m.me/katrinaruthofficial and we’ll see if it’s a fit. I’m excited to talk to you, and maybe – do biz and life with you.

  1. Hey, nice post, very well written. You should post more about this.

    Refreshing outlook Kat! It’s also been said that the secret to happiness is in helping or serving others. When I think about it, there is certainly something fundamentally satisfying in seeing when I’ve had a positive, even practical, influence on someone else’s life. That in itself becomes a basic motivator for action in harnessing my own strengths or skilling up/shaping up to increase my own potential … so that I can live longer and healthier to do it (help others) all over again in a bigger better way.

  3. Bakari says:

    I agree. When I agree to help others the motivation for me to follow through is greater. If it helps me out too then that is even better.
