Lesley Logan: It’s Fuck Yeah Friday.
Brad Crowell: Fuck yeah.
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.
Oh my goodness, welcome back to the FYF episode. Be It babe, thank you so much for being here. I love the way to drop these little mini doses of inspiration. Good to hear, maybe a win of yours, good to hear a win of another listener who could be a friend or who might be a friend someday. I just hope that these let you up and if they do let me know, you know? Let us know in the reviews or let us know in a DM, however, you can also send us an email back, we love to hear how these episodes are affecting your life and how you celebrate yourself. Alright, so first, some listener wins and then mine. So, here we go. All right, Jennifer Thind, she is an Agency and eLevate member, so I get to see her in a couple places. FYF, I picked up a new client today who has scoliosis, and she bought a package. I was super nervous about, with my trusted instincts to teach the body in front of me. I also got a referral today which feels so good. So far the referrals are flying in, I’m starting to get really busy. Soon I’ll need to invest in the scheduling app Lesley has. Feeling grateful and blessed. I love that so much. I love it so much. I think, like, any teacher who can trust their gut instinct when they’re, when they’re teaching and looking at the body in front of them instead of, like, what does my manual say? Oh my god, huge win. Huge. Oops, sorry. Okay, thank you so much Jennifer for sharing that with us. I’m so so happy to hear that and I also love that the referrals are coming in. That is a testament to the work that you’re doing with the people that you have. That is amazing. And that’s exactly what we always want for our people. So yay. Next FYF is from Olivia Walton. She is an eLevate round two. Her wid today is that I’m feeling so energized despite having a ton on my plate. My boss is on vacation so I’m helping run the studio and teaching her classes and so she can have a break. Still teaching my regular client hours and choreographing my first show for our mainstage theatre company. Which means five hours of rehearsal at night after teaching, eLevate has helped me free up so much brain space that used to be filled with worry perfection, lesson plans, and allowed me to take on more things that I love with less stress. Even though I’m working what feels like a million hours I’m having a blast teaching, choreographing and even doing admin and laundry for the studio. Just feeling super blessed for the peace of mind lately. Love you all. Olivia, oh my god, I love you. That makes me so happy. That is exactly what eLevate is for, it’s to really help take off this pressure of perfection and planning and worry and allow you to be present in the moment. My goodness. My goodness. You know, they say anxiety comes from when we are living in the future and, like, planning sessions is living in the future. And so giving you the opportunity to be present with your clients is humongous. You can do these other things that you love. Thank you so much for sharing that with us. All right, loves, I got one more for you from UK Claire. She has been an Agency for several years now. And, as you know, she like had another massive win a few weeks ago that I shared with you and I want to share this other one. Because again, I think it’s so important that we understand that wins come in all sizes. So you might have thought her cottage was this humongous win, which is such a huge one. But this is as huge as win, so, ready listen to this. UK Claire says, I’ve taught every Thursday night for 20 years with the exception of cover for a few weeks of holiday and my six month Matt leave I took with one of my three boys. Thursday was a cornerstone evening for me that I built my business on, tonight I’m celebrating the wid that I’ve gradually extracted myself hour by hour and it’s my first Thursday night. This means I only work one night that’s huge. So she is no longer working on Thursday nights. She’s now only has to work one night a week. 20 years of teaching holy frickin Molly, Claire, thank you for sharing this with us. Again, it’s just so like some, this is a humongous win for those who understand what it’s like to like try to change the schedule to be more like you’re like what you’re desiring and also that the life that you’re living requires. And it’s important that we get to share this with everyone listening that when you make a schedule change, to reflect more about how you need to work with your life. That is a massive win. Maybe it’s not like something like Facebook’s gonna care about cuz it’s not a new cottage, right? but it’s a massive win in the life and it’s a domino effect with the people around you. So thank you for sharing that with us so we could share with the group because I want to inspire more people to celebrate wins like this. So thank you. All right, loves, my win. So, my win this week is actually more of an epiphany. And I think we should celebrate epiphanies. So I have been hobby hunting. As you know, if you’ve listened this podcast for two years, I’ve been hobby hunting. And yes, I did enjoy rock climbing. And yes, I’m going to keep doing that, we’re going to be intentional about that. At first, I was like waiting for us to have a time to be in town long enough to make the membership worth it. Because there’s these commitments. Have you ever seen those memberships were like, well, if you sign up for this much, it’s this price. And so Brad and I typically are like, well, we’ll get that one because that’s like a bet. It’s a great deal. And then we’ll just, you know, we’ll go this much, and we’ll use it. And the truth is, is that like, we don’t have that capacity to enjoy that membership. And so we haven’t actually gone to sign up for it, because we’re going to be out of town. And I was like, No, I think we need more intentional and we just need to pick the membership that will work for us right now, even though it is getting more expensive, because that it’s important for us to have this hobby. So that’s one win, we are going to go get that membership, we’re just gonna pay for one month at a time and use it on the months that we were actually here most of the month. And that’s it. And, you know, it’s not, it’s not how I love to make a habit and a hobby, but it’s actually the way that works for us today. And it’s so important to own those opportunities, we can’t be all or nothing in this life and think that it’s going to be a wonderful thing and happy thing. Another epiphany I had is, you know, I have this lovely life that I’m so grateful for in Las Vegas, and I have amazing friends around the whole world. But I actually like I have several friends here in Vegas that I truly love to see and I hang out with and I see regularly. But I am searching for this like more consistent community that I had in LA (…) I know you’re like violent LA community what? Yeah, actually, actually, if you build your life, the way you want it in LA, LA is a phenomenal place. And I love my entire time that I had there. Well, I’ll say from 2013 to 2020, it was like my favorite seven years of the 14 I was in there. They’re all great. But those just the community I had for those seven years was phenomenal. And I created that. And what I haven’t been able to have is that similar, like can’t wait to see you on a Tuesday morning kind of a thing. This, like I saw this person every single Tuesday. And that was kind of our thing together. And I saw these girls every single Wednesday. And I had this epiphany with Brad I was like I think what I am missing, I keep calling it hobby hunting, but what I am missing is these, like, I had these morning touchpoints with these women who really inspired me. And I don’t know that it’s going to be something I do here in Vegas, it might be these morning touchpoints that I do with friends on phone calls for a while, I’m gonna have to make it work for me, and I’m gonna have to explore that. But I don’t have to actually know the answer right now. So when number three is I don’t have to actually know the answer right now. But when the most important thing is I’ve had this epiphany of like, that’s what I’m missing. That’s what I’m missing in my life. And that’s what I wanted to be more intentional about. And I am committed to spending the rest of this year trying to figure out how do I get that feeling of like, I know what day of the week it is, and have these female relationships, connections that are intentional, that I start my day with, that I can have on a regular basis. And so maybe that’s having a regular phone call with the girlfriend, which when number four is that I had a touch point with one of my girlfriends who doesn’t live here that we’ve, we used to talk once a week and then life got really busy. And we’re like, you know what? let’s just pick a day. And let’s just be intentional about it. Because we both walk our dogs, let’s just walk our dogs at the same time on the phone. And so, I think, you know? sometimes don’t celebrate a win till it’s completely done, till something’s completely, it’s actually completely completed, fully completed. But it’s absolutely necessary that we celebrate the win in the moment of the aha, aha, that’s, that’s what I’m missing. And what can I do in this moment? What can I do right now to start to flick the first domino on that journey? And, so, proud of myself, did that. Super happy about that there’s an episode coming out with Nicole eventual that it you’ll see why it’s like so important to take action in the day and the first day, because it’s so easy to postpone these things. So I hope that you celebrate the aha moments in your life. I hope you celebrate the epiphanies. I hope you celebrate the idea. And not and you don’t wait. Please don’t wait until you have completed the whole thing. Can you imagine if artists only celebrated when the art was done? In fact, for most artists art is never done so then they would never ever celebrate. Like can you imagine that? That would be a terrible world to live in.
