You Don’t Get Fat Accidentally

Fellow Melbournian and blogger/fitness guru Craig Harper recently made a comment which really caught my eye. It was one of several useful points in a blog post of his and was simple this –

“You don’t get fat accidentally”

And I guess, when it comes down to it, that this is true. At the end of the day, someone has to take responsibility for the state of your health and wellness, and ultimately that someone has to be you. Sure, your Mum might have stuffed cookies and ice-cream down your throat when you were young, and maybe you really did have zero positive influence in the health arena while growing up. Maybe bad genetics play a part, or perhaps you just spent years not even being aware that there was an alternative way of eating, a way that didn’t result in a slow but steady rise of the scales. And it could be that you’ve been unfortunate enough to suffer some kind of physical, emotional or otherwise impairing ailment that really has restricted your ability to eat well and exercise.

But the long and short of it is that, like it or not – and whether or not you’re fully to blame – the body that you’re walking around in is the direct result of the foods you’ve put into it, the thoughts and subsequent actions you’ve allowed to take place, and the amount of movement that you’ve made room for in your busy life. And you might think that poor health or a greater waist girth than you’d like is something that just snuck up on you, but the truth is that you kinda knew things were going wrong a while ago, didn’t you? It’s just that, for whatever reason, you didn’t feel ready to face facts. To square your shoulders and admit to yourself that whatever you’d been doing was clearly not working out for you. And that more of the same would absolutely, most certainly, in fact irrevocably lead to more of the same.

And hey. Who am I to talk? I spent at least 3 or 4 years in my early days as a Personal Trainer a good 6-10 kg overweight, pretending that it wasn’t an issue, trying to convince myself I was getting away with not practicing what I preached, going out to dinner nearly every night and then finally, eventually, having to look myself in the mirror and admit that I wasn’t happy with what I saw. And that despite the fact that I’d been working 80 hour weeks (and therefore had the ‘excuse’ of having no time for exercise or food preparation) and despite being constantly ‘dragged’ out for less-than-healthy meals by my then partner, the image I was looking at was a direct outcome of my behaviors. I was the one who had chosen to let things slip, and I was the one who was paying the price. So it stood to reason that I was the one who had to do something about it.

Your situation may be more complex than that. I was lucky enough to figure all this out at an age where hard work and good eating alone was enough to (slowly) turn things around. And I didn’t have any underlying hormonal issues holding me back, at least nothing that a few week’s of proper sleep couldn’t sort out. Nor did I have kids or any other sort of serious responsibilities to worry about. You might have so much going on in your body let alone the rest of your life that you feel as though – accident or not – your current physical state is a battle your gradually losing and that you really don’t know if you can do anything about it.

But the good news is that just as you don’t lose control by accident, you don’t get it back by accident. Why is that good news? Well sure, it would be wonderful if the magic fairy came by and waved her wand and you were suddenly looking at the you you’ve always longed to be, but we both know that ain’t gonna happen. And really, who wants to live in a world where success depends on chance?

You’re lucky enough to live in a world where you do have the power. You can decide right now who you want to be 100 days from now. You can decide right now what you’re going to put in your mouth from here on out. And whether or not you’re going to continue to kid yourself, to justify the treats, the ‘surely-this-little-bit-won’t-hurts’, the missed workout opportunities, the constant waiting for the right time to really be tough on yourself and find out just what you’re capable of. And what are you waiting for? You wouldn’t be scared at all, would you? Afraid of what might happen if you do man up? Square your shoulders, look yourself straight in the eye, and admit that you really haven’t been giving things a proper shot? Because when all is said and done, if somebody has to take responsibility for the state you’re in (and they do), then isn’t it best that that person is you? Assuming of course, that you have your own best interests at heart.

But if you’re okay with always wondering, or if you truly don’t mind the added bulge, then that’s fine. Don’t face the fear. Don’t finally take the plunge, truly commit to eating, thinking and training right day in and day out. The choice is yours, after all. There are no accidents in the weight loss game.

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.
