You Don’t Have to Be Perfect to Succeed

9681233_l

For the longest time, I told myself that I’d achieve my dream of being an author at some undefinable future point; a point at which I’d –

Have more time –

Feel more ready –

Be more CERTAIN –

Know what I was going to write about that people would also love (that’d help, right?!) –

And when I had a solid pitch plan for the publishing dudes –

Of course the reality is that deep down I knew I’d never feel ready enough to pitch my work to anyone. After all, I already knew in advance that it wasn’t going to be accepted and that I just wasn’t good enough! After all – your REALLY big dreams don’t just come true, right?

Of course the REAL reality of THAT is that of course they don’t come true with that sort of attitude! But it wasn’t like I saw it that way at the time. I genuinely believed my own bullshit and I also believed that at some point I WOULD magically be ready and at the service of those who’d be falling over themselves waiting to publish my work. Of course to get to THAT point I’d have to first achieve some kind of mega-level of guru-ness and acclaim so that people WANTED to hear what I had to say.

I was quite sure that’d happen for me as well … one day. I didn’t really know HOW it would happen, but hey – it was possible right, so it would!

At the age of 26 / 27 I had a quarter life crisis.

My first marriage broke down, VERY messily.

I churned through all my savings setting myself back up again.

I came out of bulimia remission; something I thought was long behind me, ate next to nothing all day while moving through life in a zombie fugue-state, and then stuffed myself with Heaven ice-creams and mixed lollies at night before barfing it up.

I refused to speak to my mother, my friends, and eventually when I did again the lights were on but for so long nobody was home.

I was broken, destroyed and felt like I had no idea who I was anymore; nor what I wanted.

But through it all I still knew this:

I was born for something BIG.

I was born to be a leader, an author, a revolutionary speaker; to change the world! To make millions and also INSPIRE and empower millions. My destiny was CALLING me, and I knew it’d be mine!

Only thing was:

In years earlier on, I had sort of thought that by the time I came within smelling distance of 30 I’d have it all together.

I thought I’d be THERE by then.

30 seems so old, at 21, or even at 25 – still plenty of time to achieve those big dreams!

Thing is, nobody had ever really told me that it was ME who had to achieve those big dreams. I think I actually thought that I just WOULD achieve them but without having to do any of the actual stuff required in ACHIEVING. I guess I thought they’d just HAPPEN to me!

I knew I had what it takes; I knew it was what I was MEANT for. Surely if you’re MEANT for something then it has to happen, right!

At 21 or 23 or even 25 it was easy to convince myself that there was still plenty of time for it to happen.

But at 27, in the midst of my black hole of nothingness; which went on for a good 2 years, I realised –

Fuck me.

It might not just happen.

I might have to actually MAKE it happen myself.

And if I don’t?

Then I might actually miss out.

It was like this ridiculously over the top DUH moment but it seriously blew my mind, not to mention put the fear of God into me to make something of myself before that dreaded 30 years old mark!

Only problem was:

I still didn’t know how.

I didn’t feel ready.

I didn’t have time … or much motivation to be honest.

I didn’t even really know what I wanted!

And NOBODY knew who I was; I didn’t even have a starting point to unleash myself from.

So, I did what any driven and highly intelligent creative entrepreneur has surely done at one time or another and proceeded to spend a good couple more years trying to FIGURE THINGS OUT and get READY.

Meanwhile, made some good money working for myself as a personal trainer, and started building my first real blog. Even made some money online, but not doing what I really wanted to do and sure as hell not attempting the BIG stuff, like book writing.

After all – why would anybody want a book from me? I wasn’t known yet! Nobody was knocking yet! And besides, I could hardly just bang on about ‘create your dream life’ stuff all day and be a ‘motivational writer or speaker’ like I really wanted to … right?

Right.

So, I didn’t.

One day, I knew – I’d get there! I’d be ready! They’d come knocking! Meanwhile I WAS putting myself out there in bigger and bolder ways all the time. After all – not many people were online at all back then! I was a trailblazer, for sure, and mostly I was having a lot of fun building my community and developing my first online products and programs.

But through it all, there was still that deep and NEVER gonna go away desire –

I want to write –

I want to speak –

I want to be an AUTHOR –

I want to be famed INTERNATIONALLY as one of the most transformative writers and speakers of my time!

How do I GET there?

When will it HAPPEN?

Who is going to HELP me?

Where do I even start?!

I still didn’t know.

So, I didn’t.

And then one day, I came across a sort-of friend and mentor who had published her first book online; self published on Kindle.

I bought it.

It was good … but not awesome.

It looked nice … but not uber professional.

And I realised –

Holy fuck.

I don’t actually have to WAIT for anybody’s approval, permission, OR helping hand.

And what’s more (and quite honestly this notion SHOCKED me) –

It doesn’t actually have to be perfect!

I can just –

Do it myself.

And so, I did.

In February of 2013 I published my first book on Kindle. The Secret Life of a Binge Eater.

It was an instant best-seller.

Since then I’ve published over 15 books (I think!), and counting. Most are best-sellers.

None are perfect.

The covers aren’t professional.

I get some bad reviews as well as good.

In my online business, since 2007 I’ve created over 70 digital products and programs. SEVENTY INCOME STREAMS. And counting.

None are perfect.

Much of the WAY I do things is not considered professional.

I get some people email me from time to time and tell me they don’t like how I do things, or who I am.

And, I’ve made over 2 million dollars so far doing this, and counting.

I have over 25,000 people on my email list who STAY.

I receive COUNTLESS weekly messages of thanks.

I KNOW I am inspiring and empowering others to ‘create their dream life’.

Doing exactly what I told myself I couldn’t, until I was ready, perfect, or had permission.

One day, when I’ve achieved all the success still in my mind to create, and when I’ve impacted those millions of people I know I was born to reach, I think I’m going to go back.

Improve things.

Make ’em perfect.

Get PROFESSIONAL.

Get myself ready, and organised for once, gosh darn it!

Or, I might just keep on doing my thing.

Perfectly imperfectly.

I hope I see you out there, if you’re tired of sitting on the sidelines waiting to be chosen, running the race because YOU decided to.

Perfect doesn’t exist gorgeous.

Decide what you want.

Fix your intention.

And go get it gorgeous. YOU HAVE PERMISSION NOW.

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play.

Don’t forget –

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my private client mastermind.

This is THE most badass high level mastermind in the world for women who want it all – and are prepared to do what it takes to get it! Really what we’re talking about is being prepared to be the PERSON.

And that’s what I do. I help you remember ALL that you were, and then become it. ALL Of it.

This is my highest level private mentoring circle. The exact place where I have personally mentored dozens of this industry’s most elite female entrepreneurs to break income barriers ranging from 10k months to multiple 7 FIGURE months, and everything in between. But more importantly than that – to become who and what they always were.

But know that this is not only (obviously) not just for the masses, this is also not just for someone who can afford to invest in a high level private coach. Being willing to throw money down is something which has absolutely zero correlation to being somebody who has what it takes to TRULY go next level as a leader.

If anything, in this industry, investing in a high level coach such as myself, is a rite of passage which veers just a little too much on the side of ‘trend’. It’s become something which ‘everybody does’, almost as a way of proving they play business and life a certain way.

Maybe even of trying to prove it to themselves.

Here is the reality which those who I am truly here to personally mentor and lead KNOW, the reality which my clients and all women like me as well as of course me personally have ALWAYS known:

We are VERY VERY DIFFERENT.

We are simply, smarter, faster, and have more presence. We can do more in our minds before breakfast than what most people can do in a freakin’ WEEK, a month, a year.

We are not basic ass coaches trying to heave ho our way up a few extra thou a month.

We are the ones who have ALWAYS known we are 1% within the 1% within the 1% in terms of how we think, create, operate, how and WHAT we are tapped in too.

This is not arrogance, this is fact.

And there has NEVER been any question but that we will go all the way.

My clients are high level badasses who do the work, who have a proven track record BEFORE coming to me, and a BEING-ness which unquestionably separates them from the rest. They don’t come to me to save them or lean down and hold my hand out so they can clamber up. They come because they are, quite simply, ready to go to the next level, already absolutely on their WAY there, and see in me something which they recognise because it is in them.

That ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ fire, and a level of ‘unapologeticness’ which, when truly understood and applied, can literally be the difference between 5-figure or low 6-figure and 7 or multi-7-figure entrepreneur.

So if you know who you are and it is THAT –

And you feel certain that you are ALREADY well on your way to to precisely where you’re meant to be, but that being in MY energy could help you to drop in and get there even faster, and that with a couple of simple tweaks your current revenue could be doubling, tripling, heck QUADRUPLING and beyond in months, as it has done with numerous of my clients previously, well then –

PM me here http://m.me/katrinaruthofficial and we’ll see if it’s a fit. I’m excited to talk to you, and maybe – do biz and life with you.
