Have you ever felt that you are living in the wrong place at the wrong time? Do you believe you inhabit the wrong life – one other than you were meant to be living? Adonis Lenzy’s second book, “Next: What to Do When You know There’s Something More,” can help you identify where you belong, and how to get to your dream life that you believe you were meant for.
Published by BroadStreet Publishing Group, “Next” is a guidebook to how to get un-stuck from your current life, mapped out in 30 chapters of segmented vignettes.
Next helps the reader determine why he or she feels “stuck,” and how to go about extricating one’s self from a going-nowhere universe of one’s career, relationships, location, self-esteem, confidence, self-doubt, fear, and sense of un-wellbeing.
Adonis Lenzy’s unique perspective comes from his own experiences of finding his own peace, love and happiness, as well as what he has observed during his varied careers – when he discovered that dreaming beyond his current situation and circumstance was the key to getting his life back on track. But he discovered that dreaming alone doesn’t change his life – that action speaks louder than words. By focusing on the positives instead of the negatives, and putting in the work required to constantly push for and achieve change, dreams of a better life can become reality.
According to Mr. Lenzy, we all have the potential to change our lives to be or do whatever we dream of – all we have to do is figure out what our next steps should be and take them. Thus by the singular title of the book – “Next” – Lenzy proposes success with a step-by-step-by-step analysis, decisions and movement, always keeping goals in focus, and as the primary driver of our actions on the road of change and on to the next Next.
Lenzy includes practical sections in the book to help readers through the process of changing their current lives of chronic Mondays into the life of their dreams by using the 5 sections of the book:
- It Stinks to Be Stuck
- So What’s Next?
- Facing Fear Head-On
- Increasing Your Capacity
- Make Your Next Days Your Best Days
Although at first these sections may sound cliché, each of them and the chapters within have exemplary stories – both personal, from his own experiences and universally, from some very famous and iconic people – plus exercises that help the reader through the journey of discovery for their own path. There are questions at the end of each chapter to help probe the possible causes as well as the solutions to finding the individual pathways to change, as well as logical and practical suggestions on how to go about putting those discoveries into progressive actions to stay motivated, challenged and focused.

“Next: What to Do When You Know There’s Something More” is a quick, easy and entertaining read that one could enjoy at the beach, but the principals and road-map aspect of actually using the book as a tool to change your life will make you want to come back and re-read it, to start working toward identifying and completing those next steps necessary in achieving that life that you’ve dreamed of for yourself and your family.
