Step 1

So...here's the thing.

We could give you advice to deal with something that's been bugging you, but how long could you hang onto it?

Yeah, right. Not many people could. We couldn't. A mentor could talk to us, but we'd probably forget most of it. A video could show us something important, but the reality is that we'd zone out around the middle of it.

Are you zoning out now?

So how's The Next Step any different?

Well...The Next Step isn't a program.

It's more like having your own personal GPS, a way for you to be independent but still get the answers you're looking for.

If you follow our navigational steps (navitents) and do what they recommend, then bit by bit and day by day, you'll start noticing that things are changing - in a good way.

Go to the step below to get a feel for it.

Are you in?

Step 2

Let's begin with a story.

Have you heard the tale about a baby eagle who grew up with chickens?

Well the story goes that the eaglet was found alone and placed in a chicken coop where it grew up thinking it was like the other birds it was around every day.

The young eagle never realized it was one of the most majestic birds to ever take to the sky.

In fact, it never flew. The bird was never given the chance.

This magnificent creature thought it was a chicken because all the other birds in the coop were chickens. So it bent its head to the ground, ate seeds and clucked like the others.

Can you relate to any part of this?

Step 3

If that story sparked something inside of you, then you must not be a chicken.

You're an eagle.

How do you start to soar, though, if all you've known is a chicken coop?

It starts in your mind. Begin by knowing who you are and believing it so much that you start pursuing things that lift you in that direction.

Try this. Describe a dream you have that challenges you to aim high. You would have to give it everything you have to achieve it.

Step 4

Take a moment to imagine yourself having already accomplished that goal. To reach this milestone would make you feel like you're soaring.

Use your imagination to visualize the 'you' who has achieved something you thought was out of your reach.

Select 'successful' when you have that image in your mind.

Step 5

When you saw this new 'you' how did you feel about yourself?

Step 6

What is one specific action you can take now to improve your ability to pursue the things that will take you toward that image of yourself?

You need to be realistic with this one. Focus only on the first step for now.

Hint: Your first step should make you feel a little stretched but confident, rather than hopeless, knowing in your gut that you can do it if you work at it.

Step 7

The fast track is to stay with these navigational steps and do them on a daily basis until the new you emerges.

Schedule 'Your Triumph' from jeremiahspromise.org. You'll see it listed as the tab, 'Your Next Step'.

Do the steps each day and post to the publisher (us!) in the last open box on the page.

As the story goes, "You can cluck with the chickens or soar like an eagle."

You're an eagle.
