Why You Should Treat Your Goals And Dreams Like Muffins

Guess what? As a thankyou for being an inaugural Woman Incredible reader I just made you a batch of warm, fresh, gooey, chocolate-raspberry muffins. Surely you’ll eat just one? You don’t have to tell anyone – I won’t! Did I mention they’re organic? All natural, raw cacao for the chocolate, gluten-free flour and they’re even sugar-free! Go on – I did make them especially for you …

What’s that now? Oh, you’re eating low-carb at the moment. Fair enough. Besides, they’ll probably be cold and hard by the time I get them to you anyway.

Oh well.

But answer me this anyway. Let’s say you did eat the muffin. Perhaps you thought about it for a moment or so beforehand, especially if you are following a low-carb approach to nutrition. Or perhaps you didn’t really think about anything at all except for the tantalising wave of desire at the idea of fresh, warm, gooey chocolate-raspberry muffins. Either way, you eat it – or not – and life goes on. You don’t spend a week evaluating whether or not you really want the muffin, or perhaps if you’d prefer a different flavour, or whether you thought you wanted the muffin until you got it and realised you actually wanted carrot cake.

And maybe you don’t eat the muffin this time because you’re not hungry or you just don’t want it, but you certainly don’t continually avoid giving yourself a treat, right? Even the strictest of us have a night off now and then, and we take it for granted that we deserve to do this; that it can even be an important part of getting lean.

Wouldn’t life be just dandy if we approached goals and milestones in this way?

do or do not. there is no try.

In the launch post of this blog, strength coach Rachel Guy gave this immensely popular tip: “Do or do not. There is no try.” Imagine how your life might be if you made simple and fast choices about the big important stuff, not just about whether or not to get caught up in a muffin-moment. Just imagine …

  • you might have ticked off some big goals rather than simply talking or daydreaming about them
  • or you could have changed your mind and moved on to something else
  • you certainly wouldn’t have spent hours and hours thinking about whether it’s the right goal or dream for you, and pre-considering everything that could hinder you from achieving the goal
  • and you might even have the mental energy and head-space to consider something new once in a while
  • and even to just, well, do it. To make your life happen – now.

stop kidding yourself

Last week we talked about determining your values and what makes you feel most alive, most yourself.

This week it’s time to be brutally honest about why you are not actually living your dream life. All of these things you say you want; these things that you’re passionate about – why haven’t you got them? Why aren’t you living your dream life, or at least parts of it? Do you really want it? And if so, who are you kidding? How badly do you want it?

Perhaps you’re like me in that you can get distracted by other goals.

You stop to have a Snickers* on the way to the muffin shop for example, and so you don’t feel right spending more calories on the muffin even though that’s what you really wanted. Or you plan to have a muffin but keep putting it off for another day, telling yourself you still need to focus on perfect nutrition for a bit longer before you can give yourself a break. Or you stand nose-pressed up outside the glass of the muffin shop battling with yourself about whether you should or shouldn’t but just can’t bring yourself to make a decision. So you don’t have a muffin and you waste so much time dilly-dallying that you miss out on anything else as well.

what are your dream-wasters?

Think back over the past week as an example – what are the things that take you most easily away from your most important tasks and goals? Do you get caught up in email, admin, Facebook? What else?

Let’s get real here.

If we’re talking about an actual muffin, and you really really wanted one; you’d been dreaming about one for days and you’d made up your mind 100% that you were going to have one –

Wouldn’t it just be a simple matter of doing what it takes to get one? Even if you had to forego the Snickers, or battle through the Myer food hall**, or do a silly dance in the middle of your office block because a co-worker promised they’d buy you one if you did, or even if you had to bake the darn things yourself. If your heart was truly set on getting that muffin and your mind made up, woulnd’t you just, well, do it?

The idea of expending so much mental energy over whether or not you’d eat a muffin is ridiculous of course.

But so is the idea of spending so much energy over whether or not you’re going to fully and consistently strive toward your goals and dreams, but then never actually doing so.

I hope you care more about your goals and dreams*** than about muffins.

So, tell me. Do you really want it? Really? And what are you going to do about it?

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play.

 

* No, I would NEVER stop on the way to the muffin shop to have a Snickers … some raw organic chocolate, maybe 😉

** No, I have no idea whether Myer has great muffins in the food hall. I’m sure they do. I can say, just quietly, that Padre Espresso at the South Melbourne market definitely has great choc-raspberry muffins. Somebody told me that, anyway.

*** Okay, I admit. I do sometimes dream about muffins

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!!

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!!

    You hit the nail on the head! Someone once told me – if a person says
    I will try” to do whatever, guess what – it does not happen! So every time I feel like the t-word is getting ready to pass my lips, or go through my brain, i stop, and say – no, I am NOT “trying”- I am DOING. Thus, I really do better at what I need to do.
    I can sure understand about that muffin, too, but I now I remind myself, just as I used to say to my sons when they were young, a “Treat” is something one has or does only once in a while. It is no longer a treat when it is once a day or even once a week. I continue to work on my self-control, and I admit sometimes it is a real battle. However, I like the way I feel when I decide to be strong inside. Doesn’t everyone?

    1. Kat says:

      Exactly! And I think YOU’VE hit the nail on the head with what you say about the mindset of trying. It’s like accepting in advance that you’re not actually going to make it!

  2. Hayley Williams says:

    Hey Kat, Yes I love it. I am so on this journey right now, just had the same – why not now? moment. I think maybe there are two points of fail. One, not being clear what the dream actually is and then two breaking down the mountains in the way into manageable shovel loads when we move them. The clarity has taken me 14 months to really figure out!
    A few years ago I swapped the phrase ‘ I can’t’ for ‘ How can I?’ so my mindset is to ask first, how would I actually achieve that and then set about finding out what resouces or people I’m missing to actually do it. So rather than ‘I could never’ it’s now always ‘How can I?’ Loving having my virtual mastermind group. Cheers to all you incredible women and Kat! xx

    1. Kat says:

      And back to you! What a great question to ask yourself everyday – “how can I?” I’m going to try that one more myself!
