Lesley Logan: It’s Fuck Yeah Friday.

Lesley Logan: Get ready for some wins.
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.
All right, hello, Be It babe, what’s up? Happy Friday the 14th. What is going on? I can’t believe it. Technically, I am in Santa Barbara, as you’re listening to this, I am filming (…) time. And so that’s exciting. But let me start with the wins of you guys because I have some more wins to share than that. It’s a win to be in Santa Barbara. Oh my goodness. This is a beautiful town. But anyways, let me talk about you guys. So Bianca VillaTeo from Agency. She said FYS is because she forgot to post on Friday. So I guess Saturday, my client who lives in the opposite end of the city, who travels 30 plus minutes, my studio told me yesterday that she is loving Pilates more and more, feeling a difference in her body and is so happy to have found my studio. That amazing when you hear things like that, I know like, I wanted to share this one just because like that kind of win can feel like so small, like someone loves you, what you’re doing or whatever. But like people are taking time to work with you. And then they actually take the time to share how much they are enjoying it. You got to celebrate those wins in big ways because those are bigger wins than we give ourselves credit for. So thank you, Bianca for letting us share that. And also for inspiring others to share wins like that as well. We have Laurie Cindy Linder. So some pretty good stuff. This week, she met with her financial planner. And she was truly impressed by how much my Pilates business has grown in two years. She didn’t know it’s possible to make this much in a Pilates studio. I want to pause there. Fuck yeah. That’s amazing. That’s so great. And also, can I just shout from the rooftops? You can make money in the Pilates business. You absolutely can. Yes, you do have to have systems and rules in place. But that’s why I teach in Agency and that’s why Laura is in there. And that’s why she just blew her financial planners mind away. Wonderful. Okay, back to Lori’s wins. I gave my summer vacation day to my clients and found subs for all the classes while I’m gone. I have a lot of travel this summer, but I don’t feel worried about telling clients anymore. It was better to be clear and unapologetic about my time off. I’ve been seeing a family of young competitive dancers and I was nervous about trying to teach different ages simultaneously, is going way better than expected. And the girls seem to really like to, and I listened to this week’s Be It pod with Shay Kostabi and was so blown away by thinking of how I’m not for everyone and how that actually protects the clients that I am made for, just gonna let that sink in. If you haven’t listened to Shay Kostabi’s episode, please listen to it. It’s so so good. And then her wins continue. Because it goes to this point of what her Shay’s episode, I didn’t like when someone came very late to math class last week without signing up and complain that there was not enough room for her while asking others to move. I want my classes to protect those that sign up in advance and arrive on time and want to be able to focus in class. I might not be for everyone, but I love the tribe I do have and want to continue giving them the experience they have come to expect. And then I absolutely loved watching my daughter’s dance performance. And she had posted a picture from this group. I actually love watching my daughter’s dance performance. And she ran into one of our Agency members, Adrian at our studios. It was so fun to see her. So Holy cow, do you see how many freaking wins you can celebrate in a week? You guys, if you just start counting your wins, you can celebrate that many. So now, let me tell you my win. So my win is pretty fierce. I think. It took me a little bit of time to just kind of like get my thoughts around it. So it’s actually a few weeks ago, one of ,someone who listened to this pod and someone who is becoming a Pilates instructor was in town and asked for a Pilates session, which I do offer when people are visiting. So she came in for a private session. And we were chatting and just go over different things. And at the end (…) She was like, how did you get to be so positive? And like, happy? Like, how did you get to see the world so positively. And honestly, you guys like that question floored me and brought me so much joy. Because I think I’ve ,I think I was always I know, I was always so hard on myself. I know that like, I could see positive things in others and not in myself and I could find all the different flaws that were happening. And if somebody were to, you know, bully on themselves, like say something nasty about themselves. I’m gonna be like, Oh, that’s not true. Don’t say that. But like, now I’m like, actually, here’s what I see. You know? And so the whole session was just really awesome because I got to, I was truly myself and the person I’ve always wanted to be. And when she asked that I was like, Oh my God. I’ve been it till I saw it. And I mean, I know I arrived here a lot sooner. But it was just really cool for someone to see that and then also inquire because it tells me that the overt things I’m doing to make sure that people celebrate themselves and are kind to themselves and believe in themselves that those things are creeping in, creeping enough for someone to go, how did you get here? Like, I just that is such a massive win. I hope I’m making sense because I am just so proud of this one. So I want to share that because I think sometimes we don’t recognize just how far we’ve come in our life until someone sees it in us. I mean, that’s, it’s hard to read the label when you’re inside the bottle, right? So, so thank you to the person who came to my house and helped me see like, I’m fucking being the person I’ve always wanted to be. And I probably been this for a really long time. But it’s so nice that someone saw that. And I am not positive all the time. I think it’s really important that you know that like, it’s not like a walk around like this happy, shiny person. However, I really tried to find the positivity in any situation. So I can take some action and move forward from it. I try really hard to not bemoan myself, or if I am upset about something with the way I did something, or the way I appear that day, or what I did, I try really, really hard to not judge it and ask myself, what is it that I’m not liking? Or if that is even true? Is it even true? Or is this a story I’m telling myself? Is this is a story that someone told me? And so that allows me to grow from it, to take actions around the behavior I really do want to have and move forward. So I just want to say like, it’s not like a walk around, like it’s fucking rainbows and unicorns around here, because it’s not. It’s not. But I am very conscious of making sure that I create spaces of positive places, so that wherever I am, I can bring that joy that someone might need that day. And so at any rate, I’m so proud of, I’m so proud of that. I’m so proud that I’m celebrating like how that action that day allowed her to even consider, like, you could become that too. It’s not like, it’s not unachievable. Every single person every single one of us can actually start celebrating ourselves more and be kinder to ourselves. So that’s my FYF this week, make sure that you share yours tagged the Be It pod in your wins on Instagram, whatever social media you use, and we can share them here on the pod Alright, have an amazing day.
