Step 1

So this is where it all begins. Let's start with a story you might be able to relate to.

Go to the video icon above and watch the 'Butterfly Circus' to get a feel for this new way that gives you the support you'd like to have but the independence and respect that you need.

It's about 20 minutes long, so sit back and enjoy the show.

Tell us how it landed with you when you're done.

Step 2

What struck you most about the story you just saw?

Step 3

Did you pick up on the difference maker in the story?

You only takes a small shift in your thinking to begin turning your hardest struggles into your greatest triumph.

Think about the character, Will, who seemed to have more going against him than for him.

But the Circus Ringleader thought differently. He told Will, "If you could only see the beauty that can come from the ashes."

He pointed out that Will had the advantage over the others because "the greater the struggle, the more glorious the triumph."

How much do you agree with this?

Step 4

As you go through these navigational steps, keep in mind that it's not about what happened. It's about what you do next.

Use your imagination to describe what your glorious triumph might look like. Don't hold back!

Step 5

Here's the deal about our 'GPS': the guidance you're doing now runs for 21 days without breaks for weekends or holidays. Yeah we know we said that before, but it's important, so we're repeating it.

If at any time you post to the Publisher (us!), check your day plan for responses.

If you're reading this from another site, you'll have to sign in and create a free account to save responses and post comments.

Will you commit to show up each day, do the steps, and be honest with your answers?

Step 6

You just completed your 2nd navitent.

See you tomorrow!
