“Many leaders see themselves as apex predators. They look for every weakness, every failure, every mistake to capitalize on the situation. They look to gain the upper hand. They long to get the best of everyone and every situation. You know leaders like this. They usually make the news for their huge wins.” J Loren Norris
ONE SIGN OF MATURITY AS A LEADER IS WHEN YOU RECOGNIZE AN ADVANTAGE FOR YOU IS AN INJUSTICE TO OTHERS.
Often leader see an open window of opportunity, in a weakness, a failure or a blind spot of others or a system. When gaps appear, it is natural for the apex predator to pounce on the weakness for assured victory. This is why in the wild, the slowest gazelle is lunch. The injured wildebeest is take down as a buffet for the lions or hyenas. The predator knows when the enemy is weak, unprepared or unaware and that’s the time of attack.

As I observe leaders in all stages of growth, wealth, power, influence, position, stature and authority I recognize something powerful about those with the greasiest longevity and the greatest legacy. They tend to look at the weaknesses of others, the struggles of others, the pain of others, not as advantageous time to take advantage of, but as an opportunity to serve those who are in need.

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.
