#1755 I Love PUCW

Pronounced โ€œPukeโ€ ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿค“

The other day Phil and I had one of our all-time best coaching sessions.

Nowโ€ฆ

Phil and I have had around 451 1-on-1 coaching sessions so far.

Yet, somehow, we continue to find new frontiers to explore.

I took a dozen pages of notes and could barely keep up with the wisdom bombs Yoda was dropping as he walked me through how he was planning to approach his upcoming workbook that will go with his latest book, Lessons for Living.

As currently conceived, the workbook will, essentially, help us work through what Phil calls the โ€œthe three unavoidablesโ€ of lifeโ€”pain, uncertainty, and constant work.

Note: When I gave a little talk to Toronto FC before their home opener a few weeks ago, I dropped in a little screen grab the great soccer player Ronaldo Instagrammedโ€”capturing the same wisdom from the Netflix documentary Phil is in with Jonna Hill called, Stutz. (You watch it yet? Itโ€™s great.)

Soโ€ฆ

In our coaching session, Phil WENT OFF on how to deal with the three unavoidables of life: pain, uncertainty, and constant work.

I literally couldnโ€™t keep up.

I plan to share some highlights in future +1s.

For Today, I want to focus on a new acronym.

As you may recall, in +1 #1410, we talked about the same basic idea.

Onlyโ€ฆ

I described the three unavoidables as โ€œpain, uncertainty, and HARD workโ€ rather than โ€œpain, uncertainty, and CONSTANT work.โ€

As we discussed, Phil tells us that we need to learn to not only ACCEPT these three unavoidables, but learn to LOVE themโ€”remembering that embracing lifeโ€™s INEVITABLE pain, uncertainty, and constant work is the key to activating our Heroic potential.

When we quit (unsuccessfully!) trying to AVOID all that pain, uncertainty, and hard work and, instead, APPROACH it with a โ€œBring it on!โ€ mentality, EVERYTHING changes.

Soโ€ฆ

In that previous +1, I shared a new mantra to capture our commitment to embracing pain, uncertainty, and hard work so we can utilize it as fuel for our Heroic growth.

As you may recall, that mantra was: โ€œI love PUH!โ€

โ€œPUHโ€ is pronounced โ€œpoo,โ€ of course. 😉

Today weโ€™re going to create a new mantra to capture our commitment to loving pain, uncertainty, and CONSTANT work.

Here it isโ€ฆ

โ€œI love PUCW!โ€

โ€œPUCWโ€ is, of course, pronounced โ€œpuke.โ€ Hah.

Yes, thatโ€™s a long โ€œuโ€ and a hard โ€œcโ€ and a silent โ€œw.โ€ 😉

And thatโ€™s Todayโ€™s +1.

We love PUH.

Andโ€ฆ

We love PUCW.

Why?

Because we KNOW that our INFINITE potential exists just outside our comfort zone AND we know that the pain of that discomfort often makes us feel a little nauseous.

Perfect.

Bring it on.

Say it with me nowโ€ฆ

With a smileโ€ฆ

โ€œWe love PUH!โ€

โ€œWe love PUCW!โ€

Itโ€™s Day 1. Weโ€™re all in.

Itโ€™s time to step outside of our comfort zones and give the world all weโ€™ve got.

With a smileโ€ฆ

TODAY.
