“Taking time to hear and learn from those stories may mean the difference between enduring a personal tragedy and averting it.” J Loren Norris
“In some cases other participants will study the rules just to use your ignorance of the rules to defeat you.“ J Loren Norris
“I cannot say it strongly enough NO ENERGY has killed more dreams before they get out of bed than failure ever will.” J Loren Norris
A good leader recognizes gifts and talents in those they lead and matches them with coming opportunities rather than seeing every opportunity as their own. And every team member as a competitor.” J Loren Norris
“What seems like mild questioning of the right to rule will easily become a mutiny if not addressed.” J Loren Norris
“Do you know anyone personality who sold out their values, beliefs, self worth, integrity or even dignity for the sake of money alone?” J Loren Norris
“Great leaders motivate by connecting, inspire by modeling and correct by graceful redirection.“ J loren Norris
“There will always be people who have nothing better to do than argue, create drama, distract and disrupt.” J Loren Norris
“What good is a compliment which is hollow, vain or self serving? Not much!” J Loren Norris
“A leader who treats a human like a machine, robot or animal, must redefine their processes and systems to acknowledge the soul of their team members..”
LEGACY MUST BE THE LEADERSHIP GOAL OF A GREAT DADS - BOTH IN MODELING AND JOURNALING
“The lessons we learn in life are not just for our learning. We are meant to pass them on and save the pain for future generations. We should be trusted to leave the map through the toughest times and to the promised land of success. First good dads model behavior worth emulating. Second they keep record of thoughts, successes, failures, mistakes and relationship journeys in the form of a journal. This is a simple yet effective way to leave a lasting legacy.” J Loren Norris

“The law of the picture: people do what people see is no more evident than in the role of Dad! Children who see a dad who is courteous, selfless, kind and filled with gratitude learn to emulate those values. A father who chooses to be absent, aloof, or oblivious is not fulfilling the role of DAD. Living the core values you wish for your children to benefit from demands awareness, attention and action. Be present. Be invested. Be intentional. That’s a good dad.” J Loren Norris..
NO GOOD DAD LEADS THEIR CHILDREN TO BE A LIAR - THEY DONT HAVE TO BECAUSE ITS NATURAL
”Children seem to have a natural knack for telling lies when they believe it will benefit them. Selfishness, emotional responses, and sometime outright meanness actually are natural in humans. Its human nature. A good dad knows this and leads their children in the direction of choosing to tell the truth even when there are consequences. The discipline and determination will bring about friction in your in parental relationships but the payoff will be worth all the struggles. Go the hard work of training them in truth Dad.” J Loren Norris
THE STORY YOUR CHILDREN TELL THEMSELVES MUST BE LEAD BY A GOOD DAD
“Speak love. Speak hope. Speak faith. Speak life. These things will remain as core values in the mind of your children all their life. The environment around them will speak fear, judgment, and constant comparison to unrealistic expectations. Like filters challenge beauty and fake esteem challenges confidence the narrative of the media and social media will mock and challenge your children's personal value and constantly mock their core values. Its up to you to solidify the narrative they will live by.” J Loren Norris
CHILDREN ARE ALL UNIQUE IN GIFTS, TALENTS AND CHARACTER - A GOOD DAD LEARNS TO LEAD THE INDIVIDUAL NOT THE COLLECTIVE
CHILDREN ARE ALL UNIQUE IN GIFTS, TALENTS AND CHARACTER - A GOOD DAD LEARNS TO LEAD THE INDIVIDUAL NOT THE COLLECTIVE
“A dad who is a good leader will sacrifice time, energy and resources to become better adept at understanding his children. Knowing their individual personalities, quirks, gifts, talents and interests will go a long way in helping them to become successful at life. Two rules to apply: number one start early, number two give them definitive boundaries padded with love.” J Loren Norris
DADS LEAD THEIR CHILDREN THROUGH TRYING TIMES WITH ALL THE STABILITY THEY CAN MUSTER
“In the context of time and maturity, the last thing a parent wants to see is their children following in the foolish decisions they made themselves. The only mistake a dad can make to worsen such a circumstance is to respond harshly enough to damage their relationship. The stability a dad leads his family with contains the strength to face bad decisions and the consequences they bring with grace, wisdom and a firm stand on dependable core values. Dads must stand their ground without standing in hypocritical judgement.” J Loren Norris
DADS LEAD THEIR CHILDREN TO VALUE LEARNING, KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM AS MUCH AS THE EDUCATIONAL PROCESS
’Why Dad? Is the lead in to many life fulfilling moments. It is also a sad reality that many dads check out right here and defer to a school system, YouTube video, classroom wise guy or even; ‘Don’t ask me. Go ask your mother.’ IMHO, Dads have a responsibility to provoke curiosity and inspire life long learning. Learn to ask questions which encourage research. Point them to subjects you can discover together. Source them in every way you can with new ideas and practical applications in daily life. This is a leadership role which is a must for dads! ” J Loren Norris
DADS LEARN THE LEADERSHIP LESSON OF STEWARDSHIP VS OWNERSHIP AS THEIR CHILDREN GROW UP
“Responsibility does not imply ownership. There are people in our life we are responsible to and those we are responsible for. As a leader, dad will one day learn stewardship as an obligation with limited rights and privileges which diminish over time. Being a good steward means easing expectations, expressing gratitude and sharing the vision with permission to participate rather than demand.” J Loren Norris
DADS LEAD WITH LOVE AND THE GRACE DUE A TODDLER
“Failure is not final and neither is success. Dad knows how and when to observe their children learning to walk and still encourage rather than judge. Dads who lead well never allow the sense of failure to become devastating overwhelm. Dads build up the steps to success through failure and persistence. Dads love not because of tremendous success but in spite of tremendous failure.” J Loren Norris
DAD HAS TWO PRIMARY LEADERSHIP FUNCTIONS IN THE LIFE OF THEIR CHILDREN - TO PROVIDE & PROTECT
“If you’re a dad, you’re a leader like it or not. As a leader there are roles, duties, tasks and actions which no one can perform like you. To provide insights, education, wisdom and sustenance is part of your assignment. To provide protection from harm, injury, bad decisions and bad information are also your job. The pillars of society rest on your willingness and ability to complete these assignments.” J Loren Norris
DADS EITHER DEMONSTRATE OR DESTROY HONOR FOR LEADERSHIP AUTHORITY IN THE HEARTS OF THEIR CHILDREN
“Dads carry a heavy burden of leadership and that is the demonstration of respect for others, especially those in authority. When the moral bearings of right and wrong are lost the core values are not passed from generation to generation, a lack of accountability, a lack of respect and selfish self destruction begin to creep in. Society eventually pays the price when dads drop the ball of demonstrating proper respect and discipline.” J Loren Norris
ANY MAN CAN BECOME A FATHER BUT I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU TO BE A DAD WHO LEADS WELL.
“I was raised as the only son of a single mom. The male role models in my life were a scarce resource limited both in availability and quality. I learned to be a more of a dad than a father through many years of research combined with trial and error. Dad is not an easy task. It should not be done alone. Yet it is one of the least supported roles of leadership around the world. In cultures where being a dad have been diminished, plethora of societal ills are on the rise. I double dog dare you to be a dad who leads well, not just a father or sire of children.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A SIMPLE CONVERSATION
“One of the most frustrating aspects of human relationships rest in feeling like you have not been heard. No one enjoys the position of voicelessness. Leaders know that one of the wisest, if not the most humbling action they can take is taking the time to have a simple conversation with those they lead.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW THE POWER OF A GENUINE MASTERMIND TO TRANSFORM THEIR TEAMS AND PLANS.
“Your best thought could be a better thought. Your best idea could be a better idea. The greatest thing on your mind could be improved by a mastermind. When you bathe your ideas in the thoughts and opinions of others you take a great risk. However, allowing others to apply friction to your ideas is like putting a gem stone in a tumbler. The rough edges are rubbed off and what comes out is a whole different quality of stone. That’s what a genuine mastermind accomplishes.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS RECOGNIZE A DEATH STAR WHEN THEY SEE ONE - METAPHORICALLY ANYWAY
“Mutually assured destruction is sometimes the only deterrent to tyranny. However, a leader willing to metaphorically apply the death star approach should be cautioned about the natural reaction of the poison pill, sabotage and revolt. Some team members will feel betrayed by authority and will inflict as much damage as possible before moving on. Good leaders are aware of this tension and the team members most likely to act.” J Loren Norris

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
