I f you haven’t been hit right between the eyes with a “wake up” call in the last few years or so, you are one of the fortunate ones. Almost everyone I know is dealing with some personal challenge today that they did not anticipate and were not prepared for. Almost always there are basic lifestyle ramifications, and often the impact is profoundly financial. Many of my friends are questioning their ability to find answers that really work for them. All of those negative emotions like fear and anger rise to the surface.
There has to be someone to blame for this mess. In fact, tons of energy can be invested in trying to sort out who is to blame, what went wrong and why. What happened yesterday is a fact. However, today is the first day of the rest of our lives, and the past does not dictate the future. Today is a new day and tomorrow has not happened yet. To ask the question “What next?” can be dynamic and even explosive with all kinds of new possibilities. The process begins with the realization that “it is your life.” No one else can live your life for you. It is your life, your present and your future!
