Lesley Logan: It’s Fuck Yeah Friday.

Brad Crowell: Fuck yeah.

Lesley Logan: Get ready for some wins.


Lesley Logan
Welcome to the Be It Till You See It podcast where we talk about taking messy action, knowing that perfect is boring. I’m Lesley Logan, Pilates instructor and fitness business coach. I’ve trained thousands of people around the world and the number one thing I see stopping people from achieving anything is self doubt. My friends, action brings clarity and it’s the antidote to fear. Each week, my guests will bring Bold, Executable, Intrinsic and Targeted steps that you can use to put yourself first and Be It Till You See It. It’s a practice, not a perfect. Let’s get started.


Brad Crowell 0:59
Hey, Be It family. Brad here stepping in for LL for this week’s Fuck Yeah Friday. Welcome back to FYF, where we get to celebrate your wins and then we get to celebrate some wins of ours and talk about why we celebrate wins in the first place. So we have an amazing win from UK, Claire, Claire Sparrow. She’s in our agency coaching group. And we just had an awesome opportunity to go over to England to meet up with her and do our mullet tour. Sure, you heard us mention that recently where we visited Scotland and then we went down into England to meet up with Claire. So Claire is from Scotland. And she’s been living in England for a really long time. And she had this amazing dream of getting a cottage up in the north of Scotland. And she was finally able to make that happen. So here’s what she wrote, “I’m here in Scotland at my cottage that I wrote down to make 2021 that I wanted to create in a year. A year later, we had a place that fell through because the universe just knew it wasn’t for us. I really wasn’t. It really wasn’t for us yet I grieve that loss. And then I dug deeper into raising more funds by investing into further coaching. I upleveled my online offerings. And here we are two years later, exactly two years to the date that I wrote the vision for our Scotland home that we got. I wrote it, I wrote that I wanted it to be a traditional cottage in a village with woodlands, a river and a sea and walking distance and hills, too. By the way, I wasn’t asking for too much, LOL. It turns out that’s exactly what we got all of it. And today I’m here in the power of the pause I wanted to create, taking the entire month off. And in that vision that we, that the universe provided.” So right now she’s there for a full month up at her cottage. It’s pretty amazing. She said, “And because I had that extra year of digging in and investing, we are now in a better financial position. So we feel even more confident taking the time off and doing some fun renovations to our new place. So today, this is my big win and I am full of gratitude. I also wanted to remind us all about the power of the pause, I have had more clarity and vision for the future in the four days since I’ve been here than I have had in ages, the space and the pause makes us more creative. It makes us more clear, concise, when we return back to our normal lives.”

Brad Crowell 3:24
So, Claire, unreal, we’re so proud of you, we’re so happy for you. I know we celebrated your cottage before, but I love that you took time off for yourself. And in that time off, you actually have been reflective enough to see what that pause, what that space is creating for you. I hope that it’s bringing more like rejuvenating you more giving you more excitement and energy to return back home, giving you time to ideate to come up with better plans of how you can serve the people that you’re serving, and make their lives better and continue to sell into them. We just love you so much. And we are so excited for you and your family. And maybe someday we’ll be able to come see your beautiful space that you’re carving out there, way up in the north and Scotland. Unreal, amazing. So excited. Y’all I hope you can see her win and take some of these suggestions in for you and see how they can be applied in your life. Maybe you can take some time off. Maybe you can take even just a day or even just an afternoon and give yourself that mental space to veg out to get caught up. Maybe take a nap. Maybe take a walk. But allow yourself to just think and I know for me, I pack my time so much that I hardly give myself time to think because I’m either listening to a podcast or I’m you know working or I’m you know, I don’t know whatever it is. But my day is so, so full all the time that I very rarely give myself just time to pause. Right? And that actually leads me to my win.

Brad Crowell 5:09
So, I gave myself this, this is way trivial compared to Claire’s, you know, getting a cottage. However, for me, this is a big deal because I never give myself time to pause. I never give myself time. I just don’t give myself time. Right? And normally, this is how I get my hair cut. I don’t actually cut my hair, I just shave the sides of my head. And Lesley has an amazing hairstylist who’s also a barber. And whenever Lesley goes and gets her hair colored, while Lesley’s getting her, you know, the dye is of whatever, it’s happening. And it takes time, right? 30, 45 minutes, she’s sitting there waiting. And in that moment, I hop into the chair. The hairstylist is actually a famous barber, so she zips up the side of my head, gives me a nice haircut. But really, it’s just a shave. She’s just like, me, me, me, me, me and okay, you’re done. You know, and, and that’s all the time I ever really leave myself to go get my hair cut. Well, this time, I decided you know what we’re about to hit the road, we’re about to go on tour. And I want to actually get my hair cut for real, I want to look good, I want to feel good. And on a Saturday afternoon, instead of leaving myself 30 minutes to like, bing, bang, boom, get it done. I just scheduled a hair appointment. And I went in and I didn’t have a stop time. And you know, she didn’t have another client immediately after me. So we got to take our time and you know, chat and talk about the van being wrapped and do all these fun things. And then sit down and she worked on my hair and there was no rush, there was no stress and giving myself that time to actually get a haircut that I enjoy that makes me feel confident about me. That’s my win today. And I hope that you are able to give yourself that same space that time that pause that Claire was talking about that I just inadvertently also gave myself and, and it was really enjoyable. So I hope that you can find something in there for you and schedule yourself an afternoon where you can do some self-care and feel confident about you and enjoying life. So thank you so much for listening, y’all. It’s been so fun to do these pods. We love it. Hell yeah, for FYFs. You know, Fuck Yeah Friday. It is time for the weekend, y’all. Stay tuned for the next one. All right, love you. Bye.
