Power Up Passages

Picking Up The Pieces.

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©




December 28, 2005.

”On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.”
Jules Renard

Life can be a topsy-turvy adventure ride on occasion. After all, it can be filled with all of the fun and excitement you could ever hope to handle one minute and then suddenly bring you crashing back to the ground only a few seconds later.

One moment your journey through life feels like a refreshing, revitalizing walk high above the clouds, a picture perfect point in time where everything seems to be going your way. Then, in a flash, you can find yourself about as low as you can go as life deals you a particularly harsh blow.

Up one minute, down the next. Feeling incredibly fabulous one moment; left picking up the pieces a little bit later. For crying out loud, what’s the deal here?

”Arrange whatever pieces come your way.”
Virginia Woolf

Deepak Chopra once likened the universe to a big puzzle; a bewildering riddle where we must find our own place by figuring out where exactly we fit into the grand scheme of things. Life is indeed a perplexing puzzle, a mystifying mystery where there are no extra pieces — with each and every one of us having a unique place to fill.

And it’s this figuring out process that can reveal the very best we have inside of ourselves. Rather than staying down when we are kicked to the curb, we need to pick ourselves up and begin picking up the pieces. By picking up an idea over here, an experience over there, we can start putting the pieces of the puzzle together.

”Great awareness comes slowly, piece by piece.”
M. Scott Peck

By piecing together your life experiences, you can ultimately discover your own inimitable purpose on earth. And rest assured, YOU DO HAVE A PURPOSE! It’s just up to you to put all the pieces in place — piece by piece.

By gathering a piece over here, grabbing another piece from over there, you will slowly but surely position every single piece of this amazing puzzle we call life into place. But continually collecting all of the pieces, picking them up each and every time you get knocked down, you can glean invaluable insight to life — and to living. Instead of allowing your dreams to lay shattered on the side of the road, broken apart by life’s trying times, you can begin the process of putting it all together by picking up these pieces.

”Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!”
Anne Frank

Regardless of how high we fly, all of us must sooner or later handle the tough times that life inevitably tosses our way. But that’s not all bad. Contrary to popular belief, character is not built when tough times occur; it is revealed.

So even at those times when your most precious of dreams have been blown apart or smashed to smithereens, you can immediately pick up your spirits by picking up the pieces right then and there. Not whenever you feel like it or get around to it, but right that very moment. By picking up the pieces and moving forward, learning from your past experiences and mistakes, you can quickly build on these life lessons and forge the life you have longed to live.

Best of all, you will put the all the pieces together and ultimately uncover your unique place in the sun.

The Bottom Line: Start making your life the one you’ve always dreamed of living, one day at a time, one piece at a time.
