Lesley Logan: It’s Fuck Yeah Friday.

Brad Crowell: Fuck yeah.

Lesley Logan: Get ready for some wins.


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.

Hi, Be It babe. Happy Friday. Happy FYF Fuck Yeah Friday because it’s a day to celebrate wins. I mean, you should celebrate them every day. But I know you. I am you. For recovering perfectionist and overachiever. And I get it, so hard. So alright, let’s share your wins first. That’s how this goes. If you’re new to the pod Hi, Lesley here. Tuesdays are our interviews, Thursdays are all the recaps. It’s really fun. You can hear Brad and I share our favorite takeaways, which I think is really cool. Because it’s another way to like integrate what you are learning. And by the way, you want to integrate what you’re learning, so that you don’t just like keep getting more and more information that will overwhelm you. And then you know, and then today we celebrate wins. And I always celebrate the wins you send in. And then I celebrate a win of mine. And we get to practice celebrating like the little things. It’s the little things sometimes. Sometimes, it’s the big things too, but hopefully you’re not just waiting till they’re big to do it. So the first one is from Lisa MacDonald. She is an eLevate grad, she’s my mentorship. She has been an agency member for years. And she said I started my day with the crab special love, love, love. First of all, I was so excited when I saw the title for today’s class because I love doing the crap. But what I love even more were the connections that we worked on building up to the exercise, especially love the elbows on my knees for rolling like a ball. Hello, shoulders taking over. So we’re billing, you’re the best Lesley Logan. I’m doing this one again and again. So Lisa MacDonald was talking about the OPC workout for that week. And I just really love when people celebrate a win in their movement practice. Because it’s so easy for us to focus on the exercise we can’t do. And just so you all know like Lisa’s been practicing Pilates for years and years and years. And if you are like what is that even exercise mean? That’s okay. It’s one of the more advanced ones that a lot of people don’t know and can wait a while to know what that is. And also like, just because you’ve been practicing it doesn’t mean comes easy for her. Like we all have our asymmetries. We all have the things we’re really great at. So way to go, Lisa. That’s so fun to read.

I got another one for you. This one is from Joanne Sutton. She is an agency member for several years from Australia. It’s officially been confirmed. I’m a bestselling author. Yes, Joanne. Yes, you are bestselling author. I’m so excited for you, you guys. It’s our third agency member to be a bestselling author. And I’m just so freakin stoked. I’m just really, really, really proud of you. I’m gonna do one more win because I’m just in a winning mood. This one’s from Olivia Walton. And she is an eLevate grad. I actually just had her here at the house for the eLevate reunion. That’s my mentorship for teachers. And she also has a win about OPC. It’s that I just took the OPC 50-minute Cadillac workout and did finally go for the first time since I learned it and eLevate, the cadi weekend, when I was not taking the best care of my back injury. And today it felt so great and so ugly and I’m so happy I just let myself do ugly Pilates a big win for me. And I did monkey and actually bent my elbows with my arms on my back. I can’t wait to see some of you in real life soon. So obviously this one was before the eLevate retreat, but like it’s just going back to what I was saying with Lisa like it’s so cool to let yourself be in process everyone you don’t have a Pilates instructor to be in process. You can be a regular human who is just trying to learn things. So congratulations. And there’s a follow-up to this win and I’m going to add it in here because we actually had the best time at our eLevate retreat. It was so much fun. And Olivia was on my house probably longer than she should have been. And so her win is I made it to my flight on time after wanting to soak up every single second I could on the last day of the eLevate alumni retreat. My heart is so full. I love all of you even the ones I haven’t squeezed yet. Ah, Olivia, Joanne, Lisa, thank you so much for sending these wins in because you just helped a ton of people understand that you don’t have to have these many wins, like and I like I finally like hit all 17 goals perfectly like you don’t ever have to do that you actually can celebrate these goals when they’re in process. We’ve actually celebrated some of Joanne’s wins along the way as she like turned in her edits and things like that. So like it’s just really really, really cool. Celebrate big and small and even that what seems to be so menial like making a flight on time. That’s a win. That is a win.

All right, my win. So it’s been a little bit but I am excited to announce that my win is I found an assistant. Found an amazing assistant and I, Brad and I have been looking for months for an assistant, I was really actually thinking I could like with the team and I could just like figure it out on our own. We probably didn’t need it. Like, we have a huge team already do we really need it? And I was doing this thing where I was like talking myself out of something that like, no, like ever, all of us need help and struggle to find, help tried finding different people. They weren’t returning our calls, things like that. And I happened to find this person because asked for help. So maybe the bigger win is ask for help. I asked for help. I literally went to social media and said hey, guys, I need an assistant. Here’s what I need. Here are the requirements. And I’m just so excited because of who I got. So yay for my assistant. But the win is like I asked for help in a unique place and stopped going, I still can’t find one. But I guess I’ll just like keep plugging along in a way that’s not supporting me. So that is my win. Finding someone to help support me in the process.

Okay, now, for your mantra for the weekend. The mantra is, I leave room in my life for spontaneity. I leave room in my life for spontaneity. I love that one so much. I leave room in my life for spontaneity. Maybe your win this week is a spontaneity that you left room in your life for. Tell the Be It pod if you did. All right, amazing people. You’re awesome.
