TO BECOME SUPERHUMAN, WRITE FIRST, WRITE ALWAYS

If you’ve not read Henry Millers 11 Commandments of Writing, you’re in for some alignment and asskickery the likes of which perhaps not even I can bring! Or, maybe exactly as I bring and hence why they (the Commandments) speak such truth to ME.

I first came across them in 2011, shared on the blog of another writer, and it felt like a veritable punch in the guts to read them. Such absolute truth! Such power! Such IMPORT! How had I ever thought there was anything confusing or uncertain about how to be a successful writer, when all there was was THIS, but also –

How had I been KIDDING myself, that I WAS being a writer, when I was so stop-start, writing some days and not others, committed more to the idea of inspiration rather than the practice. Sure, I was 5 years in to consistently publishing content on the Internet, including a modestly successful blog, and that year was also the year I made $50,000 or so online – the first year I’d made what could reasonably be considered a full-time income, building the foundation of what was to become a multi-million dollar online business, and all just from sharing my message on the internet – but no.

I absolutely was not writing daily.
I also hadn’t even yet attempted to write a book, despite knowing my whole life I was meant to be an author.
I would not say I was ‘known’ for my writing, although for sure it was getting me paid. But most of all –
I was frustrated as heck at myself, day after day, for continually failing to just BE what and who I knew I was meant to be!

Have you ever felt that way? It’s THE most irritating and vile feeling in the world, I find … albeit quite useful.

The feeling of absolute DISCONTENT, disease, and a kind of internal grubbiness, a feeling which can’t be taken away by any amount of WORK, indeed you could be the most successful person in the world and still it would persist until you do the ONE thing which can cleanse it from you.

CREATE.
UNLEASH.
LET FREE.
What is inside of you.
In my case – WRITE baby, and then write some more.

Something in me shifted, when I read Henry Miller’s Commandments. My soul said an immediate YES. This is what’s missing. This makes SENSE. This is what you must do.

I don’t know if it was precisely that day, but it was within a few months of this that I committed – made a soul vow, really! – to DAILY writing, for a minimum of at least 25 minutes. No matter what. I committed that whether inspired, in the zone, feeling like it or no, I would sit my ass in the chair and I would do the damn WORK I knew I came here to do.

Every.
Single.
Day.

I reasoned to myself at the time that surely, following this schedule, I could finish a book within 6 months or so … and perhaps up my game in this online business thing-y which I was slowly but surely figuring out, paving my path with.

Fast forward 8 years from then (frick! We’re now 8 years from 2011?!) and I’ve published thousands of lengthy blog posts, indeed I write my ‘Daily Asskickery’ blog approximately 362 days a year (for real, just follow me, you’ll see!), published over 60 books, AND, as a result of showing up so consistently and thoroughly for my message, my art, the thing which was GIVEN to me and which I am responsible to allow THROUGH me, I own and run an all online business which generates millions of dollars per year. Consistently. For years now. And all from me just opening my heart, my soul, my mouth, putting pen to paper (so to speak), and letting what’s IN me out.

If you observe the way I show up and think it has anything to do with me having some kind of magical gift of continual inspiration, motivation, or access to the muse, THINK AGAIN. Unless by access to the muse you mean – I keep my ass in the damn chair, I make no excuses, I REFUSE to allow myself NOT to do my daily soul work, and the muse bloody well shows up!

Some days raw and vulnerable, moving, and deep.
Other days – meh!
Either way, words come out.
Messaging is done.
Content created.
A business continues to grow.
And my SOUL is able to breathe.

(You’ve noticed –
Haven’t you?
How hard it is to BREATHE,
When you don’t do your soul work?
And surely –
Don’t you think?!
This is worse than the dread you feel at sitting in the void, no message coming through, but yet refusing to move until it DOES?
Well then.)

When I look back, it’s astonishing to me that I achieved anything in my life before I began a daily habit of writing ‘no matter what’.

I suppose that’s because now, for years now, I am so well trained to not feel CAPABLE of doing anything much until I have written each day. It’s like I just can’t focus … or care … nor have the brain power or know-how for ANY of it, until the message has come out. I’ll think about things I need to do for my paid courses … or clients or friends who I want to respond to … projects in the business to work on … tidying up the kitchen … playing with my children … having ‘relax’ time for me … nup! I’m not available for any of it until I write.

I have conditioned myself to write first, write always, write before anything else. What I’ve done really, is conditioned myself to put SOUL first, and leant into the certain knowledge that when I do, I can trust all else will flow and DOES.

It’s funny, because typically what felt like a day full of SO MUCH STUFF WHICH HAD TO BE DONE, a heaviness, or a sense that it would be ‘hard’ or take a lot, it just kinda … sorts itself out, when I write first.

The writing serves as an unblocking, a way of me accessing the ability to then work FAST, with DEEP access to creativity and source and just to ‘know’ exactly what to do and how to do it.

My writing makes me superhuman.

You do know, yes, that when you engage with your soul gift you become superhuman?? I hope you know! And I hope you therefore prioritise DOING said soul work, before you try to 2D your way through the rest of your day! No wonder it all feels so much … so time consuming … if you’re not putting first things first!

Perhaps you think, as so many do, that you don’t have time to commit daily to ‘the thing’.

Well, you don’t have time NOT to.

It CREATES time –
Space –
Energy –
Motivation –
And flow –
To do your thing as the FIRST thing.

It PLUGS YOU IN.

It gives you LIFE.

It IS your life-force.

No wonder you’re so wilted, so drained, so brittle, so dry, if you’re not giving of yourself, to this.

No wonder, also, you struggle to build the business you want, make the money you want, get it WORKING.

You’re a damn artist first, not an entrepreneur! PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST, it’s MORONIC to imagine it could work otherwise!

No wonder, also, you go to bed at night –
Exhausted
Drained
Spent
Emptied
And never
Filled up

Don’t you see?! Doing your soul work FREES you just as it FILLS you!

I sat down to work just now.
The day begun.
Hours looming ahead of me, the children taken care of just so I could dive in, to what needs to be done, in my business, my courses, my empire, my life.

I stared at the screen.
Took some coffee. (Strong, and bitter, and black!)
Inspiration did not strike.
My mind felt empty.
The time ahead seemed vast, hopeless, I felt a heaviness, like – ‘how can I possibly motivate myself through this! I don’t think I can do ANYTHING!’. Even though I have PLENTY which would like my attention.

‘I have nothing to write’, I said to myself.

Perhaps I’ll just make a little list first … of what I’d like to complete today.

And then my mind reminded me –

No. Write first. Write always. This is your discipline. This is your freedom. This is your life.

And now here we are.

And here I am, once again –

In flow.
Freed.
Connected to source.
And ready
To conquer the damn world.
JUST WATCH ME FLY.

If you think I got here because I did all the things, you have it backwards my dear.

I got here because of all the things I ignored 

And because I did the one thing, err’ day, until it unleashed all the other things.

I’d suggest you consider the same.

~ Henry Miller’s 11 Commandments of Writing ~

“1) Work on one thing at a time until finished.


2) Start no more new books, add no more new material to “Black Spring.”


3) Don’t be nervous. Work calmly, joyously, recklessly on whatever is in hand.


4) Work according to Program and not according to mood. Stop at the appointed time!


5) When you can’t create you can work.


6) Cement a little every day, rather than add new fertilisers.


7) Keep human! See people, go places, drink if you feel like it.


8) Don’t be a draught-horse! Work with pleasure only.


9) Discard the Program when you feel like it—but go back to it next day. Concentrate. Narrow down. Exclude.


10) Forget the books you want to write. Think only of the book you are writing.


11) Write first and always. Painting, music, friends, cinema, all these come afterwards.”

And now?

I can breathe again …

You?

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. 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!!

Introducing:

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!!

GET IT, AT THIS PRICE! >>> https://zw144.infusionsoft.com/app/orderForms/Monetize-That-Shit-No-Matter-What

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!!
