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, how are you? Happy Friday. So today I’m actually in Connecticut in an incredible room, which I’ll talk about with you in just a moment when I get to my wins. But first, I’m going to celebrate your wins. But in case this is your first time being to the Be It Pod, the reason I do this short episode every single Friday, is not as a brag sesh, it is a way for us all to take a moment to see that if you are having a down day you can hear other people’s wins and realize like, there’s room for you. There’s no abundance pie that like every person gets a slice in yours, you get the leftovers. We are actually all surrounded by things we have been able to do that our wins and shit that’s not going well. But if we only focus on the shit, then guess what you feel like you’re just about shit. If you focus on what you’re winning, you can actually see that there’s a possibility, a path forward for you. And when you see other people having wins, it really does affect you in the most amazing, amazing, amazing way because you can celebrate their wins, you are creating space for your own as well. You know, it’s not the cliche of like just women supporting women. It’s like holy fuck, that’s a win for them, I had that win yesterday. Sometimes we don’t see our own wins until we see it in someone else. So that’s why we do these. So I share a win of yours and a win of mine, and then we have an affirmation.

Lesley Logan 2:00
So, Ainsley Walker. I’m getting lots of great mat work practicing with different eLevate members and having fun exploring each move and geeking out. It’s wonderful. Really starting to question my time, how and what I do with it, wanting to explore this more, meeting my own needs of what that means. I have another head cold, second one this month, but only the second in two years. Rather than battle through I cancelled my clients this morning to take the pressure off so I can still go and meet two friends and Pilates people in London later. But what was such a win was I didn’t procrastinate over should I? Shouldn’t I? I just knew I needed a chilled morning so I could show up for my classes tomorrow. Made an appointment to see a nutritionist who was also an eLevate member, being clear with people and clients this week and adhering to my boundaries both personally and professionally, and signed up for the local village fair again this year. This time will write down all the steps needed to prep for it and gather help. Excited for the lighter, longer days.

Lesley Logan 2:00
So do you hear how many wins she’s got in there? She was able to celebrate a win in a head cold. And also really evaluate her time, that is a win. I know I’m guilty of this where like I’m like, oh my god, I’m wasting some time or I don’t like how I fit in this time and then we get hard on ourselves instead of going what a win. I am thinking about how I want to spend my time better. So, so proud of you, Ainsley. Way to go. You’ve been in Agency for a while and I love having you in eLevate. I know the other eLevators are loving it too.

Lesley Logan 3:20
Okay, Stacey Extence, she’s an Agency member, we’ve known her for many, many years even before she was a Pilates teacher and I love seeing her name in the wins section. So here we go. I’m making steps towards having a Joe’s Gym class. I’m teaching a mother/daughter duet. Mother is intro system and daughter is a more advanced practitioner but 33 weeks pregnant. So I’m teaching them at the same time but on different equipment and at different capacities. I’ve been learning a lot about teaching someone who’s pregnant, each week watching classes about prenatal and postnatal clients. After the first lesson last week I learned that I can vocalize multiple exercises to the daughter so that she was moving more and not doing too many reps of one exercise. The second lesson which happened last night went so much better with that slight adjustment. They booked their next lesson with me and I’m thrilled with this chance to help them further their Pilates journey. I’m also thrilled that they’re helping me on my teaching journey. That’s right, Stacey. For those who don’t know what Joe’s Gym is, it’s basically just an open type of Pilates class. We teach this a lot and for Agency members, it’s something I teach my eLevate members to do because it actually is a great way, it’s a great skill set to have as a teacher, you can actually help couples or friends who are at different levels or needs in their life at the same time without having dozens of the same piece of equipment.

Lesley Logan 4:29
Last one is Ali. She’s an Agency member. I realized that I had a target monthly earnings goal and whilst I haven’t made it consistently, I missed celebrating the month when I earned it. The win here is twofold. One, to celebrate. Two, I’ve now caught up with my accounting and there’s an automated report in Xero. So I can see at a glance the numbers! Going to track this! Next step is usage report. Congratulations, Ali. Oh my gosh, congratulations. This is so important, you guys. One, I love this. I have to highlight this because she didn’t celebrate what happened. So even though it didn’t happen this month, she celebrated when it did happen, like, way to go. And also, guys, the more you can know your numbers loves, the better it is. And so there is a sales number, which is what most people focus on. But usage is so important. And we’ll talk about this inside of Agency. And so because usage is actually how you know you have sales coming in and people always like, I have to have a membership to have automated income. No, you don’t. No, you don’t. I have an automated income without ever having a membership for my clients. And there’s so many reasons why I wouldn’t let people have a membership for brick and mortar.

Lesley Logan 5:27
All right, a win of mine. So this is an interesting win because it’s happening as we speak, as I like, talk to you, I’m putting myself in this room with a bunch of other business owners and the purpose of this, this particular one, the way we put ourselves in, is to really take our business to another level that we’ve achieved most of the goals that we’ve had for ourselves, maybe not in the timeline that we wanted, but we have this bigger goal of ourselves, and I’ll share that goal with you later on down the road. I’m not gonna share with you now. But just know that this particular goal is requiring Brad and I to become an elevated version of ourselves and we are truly being it until we see it as we’re doing this. We’re putting in the cell ourselves in this room. That is scary. Because it’s interesting to think about something that both you want and holy moly, how am I going to get there? Like, it’s one of those like, who am I to have this goal? And it also sometimes can be intimidating because sometimes I’m like that I’m just a Pilates instructor, you know, and I have to remind myself that I’m not just anything. And in this room, while I may be the Pilates instructor, and I may not know the answers to the questions I’m asking, I actually know a ton about the answers to the questions that they’re asking. And I have both the pros and cons of everything we’ve done that I love to share to the Agency members, I’m putting myself in this room where I’m like, I might be the weird one. I might be the weird one. But also like, I’m gonna benefit from this space and get the answers to my questions. And people benefit from me being in that space too, because I can provide my gifts. And so this is one of those wins, where I’m celebrating the act of doing something really, really scary. And it doesn’t, it’s not actually finished yet, this particular be it till you see it moment is going to be years long. Hopefully not year long, but years long. And it’s really challenging to become a different leader, a different boss, a different teacher, a different friend, a different wife, a different co-worker, like all of these things, and making changes like that in a business and in your life are hard. So hard. But I’m super excited to make them and I’m super excited to be in this room and I can’t wait to share with you what I’ve learned as I’m able to. So how’s that for a win? Is that a fun win? Again here to share with you like wins or not, I made $11,000 in one post on social media, which by the way is probably like, not even true.

Lesley Logan 7:55
Okay, so, all right, the affirmation for us to repeat. My weirdness is wonderful. My weirdness is wonderful. My weirdness is wonderful. My dear, your weirdness is wonderful. My weirdness is wonderful. We are all, we’re like weird in the best ways and so may you be weird. May you celebrate your wins. Send them to us so we can share them on the Be It Pod and until next time, Be It Till You See It.
