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.


Lesley Logan
Hello Be It babe. Welcome to the last FYF of May in 2024. It is May 31st. Holy moly. We did it. We all made it. That’s the win. What if that was the win? So FYFs are Fuck Yeah Friday.

That just means we take a moment to celebrate wins of yours that you send in. So send them to me. And a win of mine and the team’s. And all of this is to continue to bring positivity in your life and let you see that there are wins happening all around you. And sometimes we don’t think of when it’s happening that when we hear a win of someone else like, oh, I had that happen to me. It’s like, yeah, it was a win. And yet you guys celebrate it. So here we go.

We’ll start with a couple wins of yours. So this one is from Melissa Nagai. I’m always excited to stand strong on my policies. I have a mom and her two adult daughters doing intros right now. Mom started first and daughters are doing a duo. One no show on our first session, then I get an email from her and another from her mom this morning asking me if she could make it up in her mom’s final private. Normally, I’ll probably say yes, since they are relatives and the mom was okay with not having a private but with the amount of emails I get from these three asking me repetitive questions I’ve already sent out info about or asking to give them in a single intro instead of three because they did Pilates at somewhere else before a couple years ago, blah, blah, blah. I know that if I give in to any of their pushes, they will keep pushing whenever I say no to them, or that is how it is. That’s how I do it. They end up going along with my rules. The gym is doing a cancer fundraiser next Saturday. So I will be there for a while teaching 30-minute sessions in the studio by donation. My capacity is three so only get to teach nine people at most, but at least that will expose people to what we do here. And I got more organized with my challenge yesterday. I’m excited now that I have it all mapped out in a bit better and I still have work to do. But I have a plan and a list. You know, isn’t that cool? You can have a win that’s like I don’t have, I got ton of work to do but I got a plan. I got a list. That’s a win. I did it. I also want to highlight I did a training program a long time ago and they said there’s takers and space makers in this world. And there’s actually nothing wrong with being a taker or being along with the space maker. But you need to acknowledge that takers are going to take and space makers are going to wait for takers to take up space and then they could take up space. So first of all, acknowledge who you are. Are you a taker or are you space maker? And then space makers, guess what, takers are just here to ask if they can take and that doesn’t mean you have to space-make you can actually say no. And you can still be a space maker you can still be an awesome person. So way to go Melissa, for holding stronger that you’re teaching people valuable lessons that they need to learn which is how to protect their time. So I love that way to go.

All right. We have a win from Joanne Sutton. She’s an Agency member and she has been with us a long time. You’ve probably heard about her wins because she has written a book. She is a bestseller. She wrote being able to join the ambassador’s coaching call live was a huge win for me. After my mom was hospitalized for almost two weeks. It was a wonderful to be inspired and re-energized again to work on my biz and gain some momentum. After three years of caring for my mom, I finally have helped for four hours per week. The first two-hour session was fabulous. My helper did meal prep for me and chop mountains of fruit and vegetables while I cooked the food. It saves so much time she did vacuum the floor and load the dishwasher for me. I was so grateful. And I think it’s going to change my life. I wrote an article about my book for the PAA which is Pilates Association Australia, which was published yesterday. The public relations officer was very, very happy with it. Way to go, Joanne, you have personal win. You have professional wins. Like I just also love that you are seeing how like having even just four hours of help is a win, right? Like we are not meant to do life alone. So way to go and thank you for sharing this journey that you’re going on with all of us. Because it’s actually giving us a lot of inspiration on what we can do, too. So thank you.

Okay, my win. You guys, it has been a whirlwind these first five months, I have been traveling a lot and I said I wasn’t going to travel that much this year. And I had an impromptu trip. I was offered to be on schedule. And I, part of me was like, I don’t know if I should do it. I’ve just got so much going on. I don’t know if I should do it. Another part of me was like well, I want to do it. So if I want to do it doesn’t really matter if like, you know that I haven’t been home like I want to do this. And so I just did my final trip for at least 30 days. I think it might even be like seven 75 and I’m so excited about it. Although we might go on a little camping trip, Brad and I, in the middle of this, but for the month of June, I am staying in Vegas. And that’s my win. My win is that I was able to survive and maintain a lot of my routines and habits and taking care of me and my self-care while going all over this country, back and forth many, many times. And so I share that because it’s so easy for us to think I can’t have routines, I can’t have self-care if I’ve got a lot going on. And it’s not true. You can. You just have to understand like you can’t do all the things all of the time. So it hasn’t been my exact morning routines every single day, but has been the ones that my body has needed. And I’ve been, I’ve been celebrating that every single day, but I’m also celebrating that like I’m home now and I’m gonna be home for at least 34 days if not longer without leaving this house and that is also a win. I get to be a homebody and I can’t even wait. See, wins don’t have to be that I won the lottery or like I built a storefront or I sold my business for $50 million. That can be, I’m actually staying at home. It can be that simple. And that, for a lot of people, especially my overachievers, that can be actually a really big deal win. So. Alright, that’s my win. I’m sticking to it.

And now for the affirmation for you for this weekend. What do we have? I love this one. I invite art and music into my life. I invite art and music into my life. I invite art and music into my life. How can you do that? You just turn on some music right now. What if you like a lot of playlists just like create itself? Or maybe you go see a play? Or maybe walk past an art gallery and you go inside? How can you invite art and music into your life more? Maybe just start to hear the birds chirping? That’s my favorite thing about the walk at night. In the springtime there’s these birds that chirp and I just it’s the one that I love I think is called the mockingbird and there’s like a sage something. Anyways, these two birds are always in this one tree and they chirp all night and I turn my podcasts off just like I love their beautiful, beautiful music that they’re making. So I invite art and music into my life. How can you do that this week? Have an amazing day. Thank you for being part of the Be It Till You See It podcast. You are awesome. And until next time, Be It Till You See It.
