“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
“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
“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
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
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
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
“AS WE WITNESS A CULTURAL REVOLUTION LEADERS STAND OUT BECAUSE THEY CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY IN MANY WAYS.”
“AS WE WITNESS A CULTURAL REVOLUTION LEADERS STAND OUT BECAUSE THEY CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY IN MANY WAYS.”
”Contributing to society in a meaningful way delivers a sense of purpose to every human alive. The need to be a part of something bigger, grander, more significant than ourselves is a natural part of our existence. IMHO The cultural shift away from meaningful work, hard work and self sufficiency has marred the fabric of our American ethos…” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW LIFE IS A SERIES OF MOMENTS TO BE LIVED INTENTIONALLY NOT JUST INTUITIVELY
”Life is too short to miss the moments which define us. Moments will come and go naturally. We will engage in most of them intuitively. To get the most of life, however, we must engage in every moment intentionally. Look for moments and even opportunities to create a moment. Make note, take photos, start a journal entry, but never let a moment slip by without savoring and recording it.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE VERACITY OF CURRENCY DO NOT STUDY FAKES
“Study the genuine article and not the litany of fakes if you want to get past the deception and get closer to the truth. Leaders who live and thrive on the glitz and glamor of the spotlight and not the transformation of their people, those are the counterfeit. Leaders who do the right thing when no one is looking and nothing is to be gained, those are the genuine article, study them, follow them.” J Loren Norris
LEADERSHIP DEMANDS AN AMPLE REPLY.
“Most bullies are bullied themselves. Most people who are bullied live in fear, intimidation, frustration and often humiliation. Bullying behavior doesn’t stop in middle school or high school. The attitude of bullying is pervasive in big business, politics, world leaders and the modern versions of town square as carried out by mob rule. The antidote to bullying at every level is the same. Humility. Humility is generally discovered behind ample reply. Leadership demands that ample reply.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS CHOOSE WISELY WHERE THEY PLACE THEIR INVESTMENTS OF TIME, TALENT, TREASURE AND ATTENTION.
“Too many people waste time, talent, treasure and attention when they truly believe they are investing. If your investment turns on you and begins to decay in every area you thought it would return increase - it’s time to stop investing. If every $10 you spent with a specific organization gave $5 to someone preparing to do you harm how long would you keep giving them $10?” J Loren Norris
LEADERS LIVE THEIR BELIEF SYSTEM JUST LIKE EVERY HUMAN ON EARTH
“Living what you say you believe versus living what you actually believe might appear to be a distinction without a difference. It is not. Most people live by deeply held beliefs which are not consistent with their spoken beliefs. They act in ways which defy their expressed values. Because their subconscious beliefs drive their actions, who they demonstrate they are is not who they say they are.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO INFLUENCE OUTSIDE THEIR IMMEDIATE CIRCLES.
“If your scope of leadership influence does not extend beyond your four walls, you are wasting the tools you have worked so hard to acquire. Rendering help everywhere you can is an unwritten expectation of good humans. I don’t mean inserting yourself where you’re not wanted or unwelcome but I do mean if you can help DO IT.” J Loren Norris
THE LEADERSHIP GAP OF GENERATIONS IS BECOMING A DAILY CONVERSATION
“Work ethic, professionalism, customer service, individual responsibility are all core values the American society was built upon. Sadly, these are not the driving values of today’s work force. These values are not just about earning a living, building a strong culture and the fabric of society. They are also the foundations of a healthy family and the freedom needed to sustain it. We need diligent leaders who are determined to pass these values like a baton to the next generation.” J Loren Norris
WHY EVERY LEADER NEEDS StoryPowerMasterclass.com
“The power of a story or collection of stories (aka narrative) possess incredible value in the war for cultural understanding. From revisionist history, to future casting, from vision drafting to social engineering - stories are the wind which direct the sails in the journey through time. Leaders who are not effective storytellers may be great managers or administrators but they will not be legacy influencers.” J Loren Norris
HUMANS GATHERING REQUIRE THE ART OF LEADERSHIP COMMUNICATION AT ITS HIGHEST LEVEL.
“The keyboard warrior, mouse jockey, microphone mouth piece who cannot look you in the eye and have the same conversation they do online is not a leader but a coward, not an influencer but a manipulator. The art of communicating face to face requires a diligently applied skill set, much grace and patience. The best comedians, the legacy orators and the leaders who make the greatest impact are equally or more persuasive when face to face than when they are in front of the mic and camera in isolation.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS NEED TO KNOW ‘WHOSE GOT YOUR SIX?’
“There is no worst enemy than a good friend gone bad. They know all your deepest secrets. A good battle buddy has your six even when they know the truth about who you are. The best leaders learn quickly who they can trust and who to keep at arms length.” J Loren Norris
HOW IN THE WORLD WOULD I USE STORYPOWER AS A LEADERSHIP TOOL?
“The greatest feature of StoryPower is knowing the technique required to select the proper story to tell for the moment. The wrong story means the wrong illustration, the wrong analogy, the wrong emotional state, the wrong connection and the wrong connection. StoryPower MasterClass is all about teaching and demonstrating this art form of leadership communication development.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS FILTER THE MULTITUDE OF VOICES AND LISTEN TO A SELECT FEW ADVISERS
“Not everyone who has an opinion should have space in your head to live rent free. The heckler, the accuser, the loud mouth with nothing of value to add to the conversation should have no voice in your life. As a leader, people constantly want to give advice on how to do your job better. Not everyone is qualified for the assignment. Your job is to know who to listen to and who to ignore.” J Loren Norris

LEADERS KNOW DIS IS A ROOT.
“I know this as a matter of reality: every action has a reaction. That goes for attitudes as well. If leaders do not draw the line and clearly monitor it, consequences will be drastic. Draw the line. Announce the consequences. Enforce the penalties. That’s one aspect of leadership many have shied away from.” J Loren Norris.
LEADERS KNOW TEACHING AN OLD DOGS NEW TRICKS IS DIFFICULT FOR A REASON
“If you desire to make radical, transformative change in a large group of people you must start with early adopters. Those are generally found among the youngest and most impressionable people because they are most open to new ideas, not yet set in their ways and willing to try almost anything when it feels right to them. The more seasoned among societies tend to trust their expertise and past experiences to validate what will work over their emotions or cultural pressures. Old dogs and new tricks? Not easy to do.” 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.
