Who Do You Want To Be In 2012?

"dream life"When I was a kid I wanted to be an entrepreneur when I grew up. As the years went by and the idea of wearing a flashy suit and getting to argue for a living became more appealing, I decided I might prefer to be a lawyer.

Actually, I almost did end up pursuing that career; gearing all of my year 11 and 12 subject choices towards it. In the end, it wasn’t meant to be.

Which was lucky for me I guess, the way things have turned out. And the truth is that it was the entrepreneur idea that I came back to more than anything. Even though I wasn’t entirely sure what the word actually meant. But I did know that there surely could be no better career path than one in which you can choose your own pay, your hours, the very way you live every aspect of your life? Who wouldn’t want that?!

It’s exciting to me to sometimes have the sharp realisation that I have, in fact, created that childhood dream.

At least, to a certain extent …

you chose to be who you are now: deal with it or do something about it

By a certain extent I mean that my excitement is sometimes tempered by the realisation that despite me choosing my own hours and creating the infra-structure of both my business and my life all by by myself, none of it is still quite what I want it to be.

The truth is that there are 2 very cold and hard truths I’ve had to face about who I am, and I think you possibly need to face them also. About yourself that is, not about me 🙂

1. I do choose my own pay, my hours, the way I live my life, yet somehow I’m still not necessarily satisfied. Over the past 7 years (which is kind of when I started this blogging/writing/speaking/teaching thing; partly as my other childhood dream was always to be a writer) I’ve been like a rolling ball gathering more speed. I get busier, and busier, and busier. Time to relax? That’s for when I’ve made it! It’s for when my business is exactly where I want it. Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Hmmmm.

2. We all choose our own pay, our hours, and every aspect of the way we live our lives. Yes, that means you choose. Sure, maybe you choose a job rather than your dream business because it is more secure (you think), or maybe you choose a relationship that feels safe or perhaps you just choose a risk-free holiday over a massive adventure, but in one way or another you DO choose. Everything. On one level or another.

is 2012 the year we all grow up?

Think back to when you were a kid. Who did you want to be, what did you want to do? Assuming you can remember how to dream so openly and freely and freely of course.

And then tell me – (tell yourself) – have your actions this past month, year, 5 years, decade reflected those passions? Or have you been too busy, too scared, too uncertain? Too full of disbelief that (your) life could fulfill your dreams?

Well it sure as heck isn’t going to happen if you don’t believe it can!

Of course your childhood dreams may have changed by now. Or perhaps not! The truth is that mine really haven’t. I still want to be an entrepreneur, a writer, a leader. I still want to have control of my own time!

Here’s an idea.

This year, instead of just recording your goals on paper, or on Facebook, or in your head, consider something different. Consider who you want to be in 2012. Certainly come the end of 2012. And realise this –

You are not the sum of your achievements. Goals are markers, or should be markers, to help you live out your passions. To live life on your terms, to BE the person you want to be. And those goals are ONLY worth setting, worth dedicating your very precious time and effort toward if they do in fact fit in with the you hope to be.

Not one day. This day. Or at least one day this year, yes? And ever onwards of course 🙂

living the dream

For me, my ideal life is about feeling alive every day, about being happy, healthy, lean and strong, about being a Mum to happy and healthy children (I’m thinking 4 or more, just so you know), about having fun and romance in my relationship with my husband, about becoming a famed and respected author, about managing my money wisely and increasing my wealth daily for the good of myself and of others, about helping thousands of women to reach for their dream lives.

Those are my (current) big passions. Things I want to BE for life, not things I want to check off my life.

And I’m thinking that maybe, just maybe, 2012 could be a great year to ‘grow up’. To be the person I dream of being. Like, now 🙂

So how ’bout you? Do you think that maybe this year is the time to grow up and starting living IN your dreams and fantasies?

Or is it a year for setting goals that you ‘should’ work on, and then re-setting them in another 363-odd days?

Before you click away and go back to your list, do me (you) this one small favour. Close your eyes and imagine you’re that kid again; looking forward to growing up and being all that you know you can be.

And then decide that there really is no good reason on earth why you can’t still chase the odd dream in the middle of all those emails and Facebook posts. Is there?

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

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.

Starting January 18th!
