2. Discussion

Questions to ponder:

  • What do you think Piper likes about doing puzzles?
  • Why do you think Piper was so happy to get a puzzle with more pieces than she had ever done before?
  • Why do you think Piper was upset when she saw the finished puzzle her parents helped with?
  • What did Piper’s parents learn from Piper’s reaction and their cat?

Points to remember:

💛 The True Voice encourages us to make an effort, and the Opponent Voice challenges us to take the easy way out.

💛 Making an effort earns us long-lasting fulfillment and gives us feelings of empowerment, confidence, ownership, and pride.

💛 Taking the easy way out and shortcut only temporarily satisfies us and causes us to feel self-doubt, shame, unworthiness, and fear.

💛 The more challenging a task is, the more rewarding it can be.

💛 To win in the Game of Life, we need to identify the areas in our lives where we can make more effort to be the best we can be.

💛 Making an effort to overcome challenges is a success regardless of the outcome.

Words to know:

Effort: Working hard to achieve a goal; leads to long-lasting fulfillment

Easy way out: Not making an effort; leads to temporary fulfillment
