START HERE ... Piece We Need starts with 12 videos - animated metaphors - elements of strength. PWN is an exploration, a mosaic, and we need all 12 of these qualities.

First we have two Pre videos with our hostess Ari. Then an animated metaphor, and thoughts from Ari and Joel. We also ask some deeper questions about each piece, called Thinkabouts

Meet our hostess, Ari, and the life she loves ... yet she also knows big challenges could strike any day. We are introduced to challenge and strength by watching a real-life demonstration.

Joel's story -- one man’s history of extreme challenge. This is a reminder, because this is a story that could be anyone's. This is an inside look when the outside is speaking loud.

Major change usually strikes us personally, as individuals. However, sudden change can be catastrophic for many people, all at once. This is when love of life is vital.

Surrounded by shouting and noise, we easily dismiss what is important. These are times when we must listen for what is very quiet ... and perhaps ignored.

The essence of inner strength is very simple and very present. We all have the elements of inner strength. Here are four pieces, all contained in life itself.

Yes, I want to find strength ... but which direction should I look? Do I need to become familiar with my greatest resource? Have I been ignoring what is here?

Learning what I have requires clear vision; discovery requires seeing in new ways. Here's a metaphor about a grey vacuum that is actually a dance of magic.

Everyone's story: a life that builds from quiet to crescendo. Returning to the beginning reveals a center core of strength.

A simple child's game carrying an important message. Sometimes the most ordinary and obvious things are the hardest to see.

11-10.jpg

The nature of gratitude: clarity, recognition, appreciation, commitment ... and inner strength -- because giving thanks taps the power of humility.

In order to go where we want, we must first identify the path that goes precisely to that place. This shows the importance of simplicity.

Words don’t always work, and sometimes communication seems impossible. When? Why? Inner strength needs to identify things directly.

Major help might come from a source that is unfamiliar to us. Sometimes we have no choice but to admit we do not know and to trust without hesitation.
