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.
Hello,Be It babe. Happy Friday, oh my gosh, I cannot believe how fast this month has gone. I’m like losing my mind, it’s going so fast. It’s actually been a whirlwind. So some of the wins, I’m gonna be sharing with you, with my personal self this week and next week and the week after, just like, I got a lot of wins to share. And I don’t say that in a bragging way. And I say that I hope you like the usual listeners, you understand. I say that not, oh my goodness, it has been such a whirlwind. I’ve celebrated them in the moment. But I wanted to do a decompress and then do another celebration with you guys, because I want to kind of explain why they’re such big wins. I think that also makes celebrating your wins really, really fun. Because I know for a lot of you celebrating a win before it’s like the biggest thing the most perfect thing before it’s over is really hard to do so and celebrating some wins. But I want to share with you some of these other wins we’ve had that have been shared and their big deal and like their big deal because of you guys. So anyways, here we go. First of all your wins, of course. So Sonia from Agency, and she’s also my round two of Elevate, she said, FYF, if the sun is shining, I have the whole day off and going out with girlfriends tonight, business is ticking along, I’m not filling my gaps and enjoying some extra time out. Usually life feels like I’m constantly running from one thing to the next. And now I can feel like I’m slowing down and loving it. Rather than just continually working. It’s helping me to also start thinking again, I totally let go of my business ideas through my day today. And I can feel my thoughts and ideas bubbling away. Again, another reminder that some self care, rest, whatever fills your cup is so beneficial. She also saw Harry Styles on Wednesday. And it felt so good to be out of routine and do something fun. It made me realize I can do different things that for fun and life doesn’t have to be so rigid. Oh my goodness. Way to go, Sonia. So first of all, I just love this because I think a lot of us don’t see enjoying the slowness as a win. And it is, that’s one of the reasons I want to share this win with you, enjoying like a change of pace and celebrating that you get to enjoy not being so busy and that when there are gaps in the schedule, you don’t have to fill them. So important. So, so important. And also that you can go to a concert on a Wednesday night. And of course why Harry sounds amazing. So thank you, Sonia, for sharing that with us. Bianca, she is in our Agency group. She has an update for us. She had a got a new client on a package for two times a week, another figure skater and she got another referral, another figure skater being sent her way. I’ve been working with an older male with diastasis recti for the past month, and as physiotherapist said his dr is closing up, I wasn’t confident I could help them close it up. So this boosted my confidence and reaffirm the benefits of Pilates. I had a great session with a business financial advisor to ensure my corporation set up well and it was worth every penny, I got clarity on what I need legally and financially. So no more guessing, holy, frickin moly, these are huge wins, you got a new client, you got another referral. And you help support someone on something that you’re like, I don’t know, I’ve never done this before. But I think I can do it and you got support, and you got feedback, and you got to celebrate what you’re doing. And I love you did the scary thing. So few people will actually go talk to a financial adviser, and actually make sure that they’re doing things right from the beginning. Trust me, if you are running your own business. I know there’s a lot you don’t know. But there are some things you want to make sure you set up right from the start. So way to go. Bianca, thank you so much for sharing this with us. Okay, so my win my first one that I’m gonna share with you, that’s a little bit past due. And it’s only because I was like in the midst of it that I couldn’t do an FYF at the time. So we did a summer camp, and I had this dream of doing summer camp with OPC. My company onlinepilatesclasses.com many, many years ago. In fact, we were about to turn five. And I wanted to do a summer camp. But I wanted to be with some other teachers at the time, I was the only teacher on the site. So I was like, Well, we’ll just have to wait. And then we got the teachers on the site, but it changes hard. So we had to ride the change. And then we started doing this little workshops throughout the year to introduce more people to them. And I still ended the summer camp and we had some obstacles along the way this year that were meant planning summer camp earlier was not an option and that’s not usually how we work. We like to plan things well in advance so I was a little concerned we wouldn’t be able to do summer camp, we’d have to cancel and frickin didn’t we breaking doNE it. And I just want to say shout out to Rachel Piper, Mindy Westfall, Tammy Adrienne George, Christine Campbell and Lori Watson. Y’all brought such incredible inspiration to the Pilates space for people of all Pilates levels. Your individual workouts and workshops Were just fabulous. I love them so much. I learned so much. I mean, I was just like, Oh, that’s so creative. Oh, that’s so fun. Oh, I totally get how that works. I just love it. I love that. I love that different experiences contagious different than And then we did a team workshop together on the teaser, and that was a blast. So we’ll be doing another team workshop together this fall, not another camp. But summer camp was so much fun, we didn’t have a single tech difficulty, the things that like didn’t go right, were kind of out of our control, were able to fix them. Thank goodness, we have an amazing team. And so the win is just that, like, we didn’t let the obstacle stop us from just giving it a try. It had been actually fine for us to have postponed it or just rescheduled it as like a winter camp. But we didn’t, we actually totally 100% did it as a summer camp that we planned so that we could make mistakes so that we could learn from it so that we could take notes for the next time. And throughout the time. We’re like, oh my god, this is amazing. Okay, I want to change this for next time. Okay, this is amazing. Okay, I want to change this. And I just want to say to you, there’s a difference between judging and observing, alright, judging is like, Oh, we fucked up. We should have just done this anyways. No, you don’t know what you don’t know. Right? So like, we didn’t know that having like a 430 class on a Saturday might not be the most amazing way to do that. And so now, we know we’ll put that on an earlier time on Sunday, so that we end early on the day so that people in Europe aren’t in bed when that’s going on. And people on the East Coast aren’t having dinner on a Saturday night. So like, lesson learned. It’s so important, like you can observe and think through things. Without judging yourself or thinking that you did it wrong. We didn’t do anything wrong, we did things to the best of our ability were dreaming things up. And the team was phenomenal. Just fabulous. So what you can’t learn what you can’t have is wins and lessons from thinking, you do have to take some action to get some clarity. And our summer camp is just proof of that taking that action and gain that clarity. And I’m just so excited and I have one more win to share with you and then I’ll let you go on to celebrate your wins because you should do that. So if you’re watching this on YouTube, I’m going to show this to you. This is a cover of a magazine. It’s called ICONFIT. And it’s their volume one of their spring 2023, no it’s volume. Sorry, it’s volume six, guys, spring 2023. Roman numerals. Not my thing. Anyways, if y’all remember, James Patrick, when he was on here, he talked about goals and how like he doesn’t have a goal of like, how many magazine covers gonna get in here, but he has a goal of how many pitches he’ll send out because that is what in his control. So I could never have a goal of being a cover model in a magazine. But I did make sure I put myself in the room to be considered for ICONFIT and ICONFIT this issue is all about teamwork. And I did a whole article with Brad and I two pages instead of magazine and we’re on the back cover and it’s so freakin cool. I’m so freakin stoked about it. I love it so much. And so you can get that ICONFIT magazine online. If you want the hardcopy, you want to see us on that back cover. It’s cool as fuck. So what a win even though like really the win was just actually submitting ourselves and I’m sharing like why we are a team that is worth people learning from and you know the results of that win or that run back cover. So so so fun. Okay, now, go celebrate wins, go celebrate even the wins that are in the midst or even the wins were like, that wasn’t exactly the way I wanted to go. You did the thing. You got started. That’s a win. All right. Thank you so much for listening to this. Make sure you share this with a friend. Celebrate your FYF, tag me on instagram if you’re doing it.
