Why You’re Not Rich Yet (this might hurt)

Screen Shot 2013-08-19 at 6.24.34 PMLately I’ve been coming across a bunch of great articles teaching insights into the ways wealthy people think. I love this sort of stuff; stats about how much time wealthy people spend on personal development and education while the poor spend their free time on reality TV and the like.

Some of my favourite comparisons from a recent article I read –

80% of wealthy are focused on accomplishing some single goal. Only 12% of the poor do this.

63% of wealthy listen to audio books during commute to work vs. 5% for poor people.

81% of wealthy maintain a to-do list vs. 19% for poor.

67% of wealthy write down their goals vs. 17% for poor

88% of wealthy read 30 minutes or more each day for education or career reasons vs 2% for poor.

6% of wealthy say what’s on their mind vs. 69% for poor.

67% of wealthy watch 1 hour or less of TV. every day vs. 23% for poor

6% of wealthy watch reality TV vs. 78% for poor.

44% of wealthy wake up 3 hours before work starts vs.3% for poor.

74% of wealthy teach good daily success habits to their children vs. 1% for poor.

84% of wealthy believe good habits create opportunity luck vs. 4% for poor.

76% of wealthy believe bad habits create detrimental luck vs. 9% for poor.

86% of wealthy believe in life-long educational self-improvement vs. 5% for poor.

86% of wealthy love to read vs. 26% for poor.

Okay I just ended up copying out nearly the whole article 🙂 seriously I love that sort of stuff though; it fascinates me.

What shocks me, and the reason I’m writing this post, is the responses that are given to these sort of articles in the comments or on Facebook. I could cut and paste some examples in but essentially it’s some sort of combination of the following –

It’s all very well for rich people.

Well I didn’t come from money I have to work for a living!

I have to work 80, 100 etc hours per week so my boss can go on holidays.

Wealthy people have the capital to be able to do what they want and turn their ideas into a business.

Who would want to be rich anyway, rich people sacrifice time with their family and friends just to get ahead.

I’ve seen a different variation of these sort of comments on the Facebook posts of my business coach. She shares actual figures about how much her clients are making – needless to say some pretty impressive sh*t. Sadly, instead of asking how they too could become one of her clients or get results like that most people bitch and moan about how they don’t believe it, it’s all a scam, or that she should ‘prove it’.

Prove it?

Why in God’s good name should anybody prove to YOU that they or their clients are capable of success?

How about you get off your butt and start proving to yourself that you actually want more money, a more fulfilling life, to leave a greater impact and DO something about it.

How about you stop using time, uncertainty, lack of capital as an excuse for not creating a new life for yourself and your family?

How about you stop pretending that YOUR wealth and success is anybody’s choice, fault or influence but your own?

Show me somebody who uses time, lack of money, lack of know-how, having to ask permission from their partner, or ‘wanting proof that other people’s success is real’ as an excuse and I’ll show you somebody who will still be spinning their wheels and wondering why other people are luckier than them a year from now.

You want success, wealth, to live a life that is truly soul-fulfilling and gives you the freedom to be, do and have whatever you want?

Then freaking well make it happen.

YOU freaking well make it happen.

Oh but I don’t know if I can …

But what if it doesn’t work …

My last idea failed …

I don’t have _______ that you/he/she has …

Okay then. Back to the 9-5 or whatever your life is now but don’t come whining about how unfair it is that you don’t have exactly the life you want if you’re not actually willing to make it happen regardless of your current circumstance or possible bevy of reasons not to.

Maybe I’m living with my head in the clouds but honestly I did not realise just how negative the typical mentality is when it comes to money and success. I guess I’ve done a good job of surrounding myself with the right people, with finding ‘my people’ so to speak; those who will reinforce and support the beliefs I’ve always had about my ability to succeed and become wealthy.

Like the belief that anybody with drive and the willingness to keep putting one foot in front of another can ‘make it’.

That becoming wealthy gives you MORE time with your loved ones and also greater ability to help others and give back.

That you can turn an idea and your determination into a million dollar+ business with less than $100 down if you really want to.

That nobody limits you except for yourself.

And that you are the product of not only how you spend your time but also of the thoughts you allow to live in your head.

The sad thing is that each person out there who believes wealth is a side-effect of luck or only for a select few or in some way makes you a bad or selfish person will live with that experience as reality.

And anybody who believes that they can change their circumstances and that it’s up to them to prove it to themselves and to do it will live with THAT experience as reality, and enjoy the benefits.

If you’re not rich it’s not because you don’t have what it takes.

It’s not because of lack of time, or money or know-how or proof or because you have to ask somebody else’s permission to follow your dreams and they don’t think it’s realistic.

It’s because deep down YOU don’t think it’s realistic. For you.

And you’re not willing to prove yourself wrong.

Or are you?

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.

REBEL MILLIONAIRE

Starting January 18th!

For those who were born to run the damn thing,

To turn the world on its head and dance on top of it,

And who are ready to do just that.
