Summary:

Step 1

Welcome to The Next Step, a navigational system to help you deal with what's coming at you each day.

Why do navigational steps instead of whatever you've been doing?

Well...you want to be your own person, right?

Is it true that you'd like to be independent but still be able to ask questions when you run into trouble without everybody getting all up in your business just because you made a mistake or need a little help?

That's why the Next Step exists.

It's a way for you to be both independent and still get the answers you're looking for to outsmart whatever's in your way.

The Next Step is a guidance system. Think: your own personal GPS.

When you've finished, let us know how much you would like to have your own personal GPS.

Step 2

There's something you should know about a GPS.

The steps will guide you, but you have to follow where they're taking you to get where you want to go.

It's really that simple. Well, sort of. If you just follow the navitents (navigational steps) and do the tasks, then bit by bit and day by day, you'll notice that things will start happening for you, good things.

Situations that used to make you squirm will get easier to handle. Your problems won't feel so overwhelming.

Are you tracking?

Step 3

There's something else that makes this so different from other approaches you may have tried or were made to try.

It's not a program.

There's an option to do the navitents with friends in a protected social media group on the site, but you can do them on your own if you like. It's completely your call.

If at any time you have questions or want to make a suggestion, you can share privately with us in the last open box at the bottom of each page.

Those posts are confidential. Responses show up in your message icon at the top of the page.

The point is to go your pace and reach out in whatever way you're most comfortable.

How often have you felt that you were just another number or statistic in a program?

Step 4

Now, if you're ready, begin your journey by going to 'A Small Shift. A Glorious Triumph.' You'll see it on today's Day Plan.

You just finished your first navitent.

Are you ready for more? You got this!
