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.

Hey Be It babe, welcome to the FYF, the last one of October, holy frickin moly, what a month. I spent most of it, not in the country. So it feels like I only had like a week. It’s not funny. Like, if you travel, you feel like you like it’s not like time stood still. But like you weren’t home for so much of the month that you’re like, Oh, I only had one week of October, which is not true. Time really stood still in Cambodia and I have some wins to share with you about that in a second. But first I’m going to celebrate your wins. So in Fuck Yeah Friday, this is a day that we actually take time to celebrate wins, especially the small ones, especially the incomplete ones. And of course, you can celebrate some big ones and I share yours you send to me and then I share one of mine. So this one is I’m Stephanie Eder, she is an Agency member and eLevate round two person. So here we go. Just spent 10 days on vacation and strange beds, and my back was really bothering me. Did the 50 Minute OPC reformer class for August and it feels so much better. I love the theme of balance because one side of my back always hurts. And it weighed me tune in to how I was working my body. Oh, I love that for first of all, I love that OPC helped you there, of course. But I also love that you took the time for yourself. So many people after a trip would just be like, Oh my god, I have to get back into this thing I have so much to do. I’ve got all these things to do. And you like took something for yourself, Stephanie, that is so cool. And you were able to really like tune into what your body was going through on one side versus the other. Lots of good information there. Thank you so much for sharing. I’m so glad you want a 10-day vacation. Good for you.

All right, Selena Lowe from Agency said so the first win is a bit of a bittersweet win here. With my price increase, I lost a small group class that we’re doing one time, one time per week, which of course I’m sad to see them go as I have been teaching some of them for a few years now. My win is the way I handled it by not completely freaking out remembering what LL tells us that we can lose the percentage of clients that we increase our rates by. When I read that, their message, it did hurt but I have to understand people’s but I have to understand people’s financial situation situations decisions. This particular group, I had a feeling that I would either get pushed back on the increase or they may go so it’s not a complete surprise either they were getting a really good discount previously, which they actually were not aware of to keep things simple for me, I want to have everyone be on the same prices. So the second win is that I already had a client on the waitlist for that slot, and I filled it immediately. And I have a happy client that now gets her two sessions per week. That’s amazing. I’m just gonna pause before I stray off for a second win so I want to highlight this, if you raise your rates by 5% you can lose 5% of your clients but you’re making the same amount of money and you have less time so that gives you more time to find people to fill those spots. So it’s actually really important you know that and it sucks when people don’t like your rate increase but also it’s work sometimes people are going to leave us and it’s really going to be okay. And you never know, they come back.

Okay, back to Selena’s win, she has a second one. I completed my injuries and corrective exercises course study and submitted the exam questions papers for review. Fingers crossed, I passed. Third one, I just okay, I have to interrupt with her win again. I love that you’re celebrating that you just turn the thing in Selena and you’re not waiting until you pass to celebrate Fuck Yeah, that’s amazing. Okay, third one, two weeks in a row. Now I have had good numbers to my prenatal yoga class and some great feedback from the participants feeling positive about what September will bring. Selena, thank you so much for sharing all three of these wins. They are huge. There’s something for everyone here to see themselves in. I just love I love that you celebrate wins even before they happen. I also love that you’re acknowledging how wins are happening even it feels like the doors closed on something that it actually opened up a door of a win. I love that.

Okay, so here’s, I have a couple wins. So I am not someone who unpacks after a trip I actually like I don’t know what I do. I just like leave this I know what I do, I like leave the suitcase like just there. And at some point, I open it because I need my makeup out of there or something like that. But I’ll just like leave it. And I don’t know why I do this. I don’t I don’t know why I don’t just unpack right afterwards. I want to be someone who unpacks and I decided on the way home from the trip that I was like visualizing myself unpacking the suitcase. After I greet the dogs. Okay I will come and greet the dogs, I’m going to come in, I’m going to shower and I’m going to unpack the suitcase. And I did it. I know that’s so crazy. I’m an adult who flosses her teeth and does all these things. But like for whatever reason, I’ll just leave the suitcase open with stuff inside for a week or like, especially here’s why this isn’t even bigger win I’m actually leaving in five days for another trip. So sometimes I’m like, oh, I’ll just unpack it when I gotta pack it like I’ll just like, I’m just like, I’ll just do it at the same time. And it’s like, no, I’m doing it and it feels really good. So some of you are probably like, Oh my God, how disgusting. You know, we all have our flaws. So the other thing that was really, really great about the trip is, I had a lot of things that I wanted to get done on the trip, like a lot, a lot of blogs I wanted to write I had a lot of things I wanted to do to make updates for this podcast for next year. And some podcast guests I wanted to invite. And I also had this lot pressure, but like, I had this deadline of like, okay, I was going to work on the next flashcard deck. Because ideally, I was supposed to do two decks this year, and obviously I did one. So, so I really like me, I had a week in Cambodia that was dedicated to getting all these projects done. And was talking to shout out to Green. I love her. She was like, well make sure that you have room for surprise in there and like for doing ever. And I said oh yeah, I will. I will. And I love that she said that, because I just made sure that every single morning I tried a different route to my favorite place to work because I could be surprised. And that the moment I needed a break, I was like, well, let’s just go walk somewhere else and get a change of scenery and be surprised. And that was really fun because it allowed me to have some moments of just like, oh, what’s over there? Oh, I wonder what’s over there. Oh, I wonder what’s over there and just like be in wonderment. And then when I got to sitting down to work like I had this like energy and excitement and creativity to bring to it and I’m really proud of all the stuff I put together and I can’t wait for you to hear all about it. So anyways, I am so grateful.

So here is your mantra. I will allow myself to evolve. I will allow myself to evolve. So what are these mantras for there for? They’re for you to journal with, they’re for you to percolate on, they’re for you to repeat out loud five times. I always hear people like what should I journal? What should I journal? So, I just like Googled a bunch of fucking mantras and I’m dropping one in FYF every week just in case you need something you can use it all week long. You can say all week long if you want. so anyways, I hope that this wins week was really fun for you I want to hear your wins. I want you to send them to me.
