This is for those moments when you’re at the end of the road, the edge of the cliff — the beginning of something…

So, now what? Today I’ll show you…

The “unexpected” allows us to go so much deeper than what we thought we would, should, or could…to discover what’s really there.


It allows us to find out and discover what’s there in our NOW, to create the NEXT.

So…Now What?

Sometimes this can be the scariest question after something unexpected happens, or something new is about to begin.

So instead, I encourage you to look at NOW and NEXT.

That’s right…


You’re at the crossroad, and you must make a decision to go right or left.

Are you going right or left?

Are you going the way that’s right for you?


Are you going to “left” — to leave it — to leave yourself? To leave it all?

Start with…Now. Why?

If you’re not HERE. NOW. then you’re going to be NOWHERE.


Not, now what?


What Now?


Now. When?

There’s no greater WHEN then NOW.

There’s no greater WAY to go to NEXT then from (and through) NOW.



Now. And. Now.

NOW + NOW is kind of like 1 + 1. It doesn’t equal 2…it equals 11.

Now + Now is exponential!!

The NOW NEXT MOVEMENT is catapulted and fueled by NOW. AND. NOW.

What are you willing to do NOW and NOW to move to NOW…NEXT?

Only YOU can answer that for yourself.

You can move from feeling like you’re drowning…to sipping.

Feeling like it’s overcoming you…to overcoming.

By BECOMING in the process of NOW AND NOW.

Moving from NOW to NEXT.

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)


Write down what you see right here in the NOW. What does your NOW look like?

Then write down the word: NEXT.

What would your next step look like in the NOW?

Write it down and commit to taking it today.

Not only commit to doing it, but simply do it.
