“To claim America is perfect or flawless is just plain ignorance. To decide that an utter dismantling of the most prosperity creating, freedom creating, introspective nation of people in the history of the world is as ludicrous as throwing the baby out with the bath water or intentionally crashing your car when the check engine light comes on.” J Loren Norris
“Imitation may be the greatest form of flattery, but the mockery and the manipulation of an idea contrary to the intent of the originator is a social form of hijacking. Anyone who steals your brilliant idea and claims it as their own is a thief, that’s why we have patent laws. Anyone who adopts your idea and uses it for destructive or nefarious purposes is simply insidious.” J Loren Norris
“So long as we Americans have the right to vote, we also have the equal responsibility to vote! Regardless who you vote for, please choose to be an informed voter not a conformist voter. Forget hair color, skin color, sign color and party when you vote.” J Loren Norris
SEPT 11, 2001 A WATERSHED MOMENT IN OUR NATION AND IN MY LIFETIME. MUCH HAS CHANGED AND MUCH HAS NOT SINCE THEN.
“Awareness is key in all elements of life. Awareness is also a significant commodity in the trade of control. Silence of ideas, silence of opponents, silence of voices of dissent are all tools to control the narrative. This day marks a pivotal moment in our nation’s history and there are still many facts which have been hidden or suppressed. The is still much we do not know.” J Loren Norris
”High school and college are a great season of life to discuss, articulate and consider an individual’s worldview, but it is significantly too late to shape or create it. Worldview is tied to belief system and character which are originated between 2-7 years old based on experiences, relationships and environment. The stories you tell your toddlers will be the greatest shapers of their life long worldview.” J Loren Norris
HUBRIS ALONE ALLOWS ONE TO REVEAL THE PLAN NO ONE THOUGHT EVEN REASONABLY POSSIBLE AND DO IT ANYWAY.
“Constantly modifying behavior based on social acceptance is a good start, but moral character based on core values must go deeper than popular opinion and socially acceptable behavior. What level of arrogance is required to persist in doing what you know is wrong, damaging or destructive? Is it hubris alone, narcissism, or something more clandestine? Society as a whole is general guide to good or bad, right or wrong but “mob psychology” and society are not the same.” J Loren Norris
“So far as I know, no one who has fled a communist or socialist country has fled seeking a better communist country. None have left Venezuela seeking Denmark even. It seems they all seek the freedom, the opportunity, the harmony of the world’s freest, free market society. If ‘we the people’ surrender to socialism ideologies where will they go then?” J Loren Norris
“If leaders are controlled in their thinking by popular thoughts alone, they are not leaders but followers. Leaders must exercise independent thinking and influence others to do the same.” J Loren Norris
“Anyone can blame anyone for anything... but the blame game is a game with no winners! If you want to have control of the direction of your life, you must take individual responsibility for how you choose to respond to undesirable events in your life.” J Loren Norris
“If you want to have a global impact, you have to grow to greater influence. Influence increases at the level respect and authority increase and those place great demands on a leader of any level. From parents to police officers, influence begins with a proper understanding and application of authority.” J Loren Norris
“I will be so bold as to say nothing impacts your present and your future as deeply and profoundly as your attitude. When a positive attitude is a core value, you have already decided to maintain that attitude regardless the circumstances and this choice will predetermine a brighter future for you!” J Loren Norris
“Confidence is simultaneously invaluable and fragile. Confidence is also the first target of haters and doubters who wish to stop or prevent your success. Core values help to make decisions before the moment of choice arrives. Confidence is the internal knowledge of competence which keeps you pressing forward against the odds simply because you firmly believe you can. Choose now to believe in yourself and make confidence a core value.” J Loren Norris
“If it is your “style” to cut corners, do minimal work, and get away with anything you can, you do not possess a core value of excellence. Leaders at every level prefer to operate with and lead those with EXCELLENCE in their nature.” J Loren Norris
“The one group of people you should always be able to count on is FAMILY! Sometimes the ones you can trust to have your back, to have your best interest at heart, to stand with you in struggle and celebrate you in wins are not “blood relatives.” But if they do all those things, they are FAMILY - hold them in high regard and make that a core value.” J Loren Norris
“Unless you’re among the uber wealthy, the corrupt political circles or Hollywood, it’s not the pedigree, the degree or the university label which will make a difference in your life. No the quality of life for the common American is driven by WORK ETHIC its all about the quality of the work you do.” J Loren Norris
“Being prepared is more about attitude than assets! Having preparedness as a core value is essential to facing the inevitable challenges of life and leadership. Blended with, grit, resolve and disciplined determination, a leader can stare in the face of any unplanned crisis with one confidence, “I am prepared to do whatever it takes to press through this moment!” J Loren Norris
“Life is filled with distractions and objections which are incessantly straining against your success. GRIT is the only antidote to the forces fighting against you, Determination and discipline are the grit which will empower you to overcome that struggle.” J Loren Norris
“If I, you, we, do not take RESPONSIBILITY as a core value, we surrender the power to lead our own lives! To whom you give the blame, the credit, the authority, you give the power to decide. Taking personal responsibility for your life and outcome is the single most impactful decision you will ever make.” J Loren Norris
“Who watches the watchers? Who looks after the behavior of leaders? From the drug dealer on the street corner to the CEO in the corner office, from the elected local leaders to the highest office in the free world, we all answer to someone eventually. We will all have to answer for our decisions and actions one day. Accountability is a core value to insures mutual destruction as a result of failure to exhibit integrity.” J Loren Norris
”If Bob Burg is right, we all do business with people we know, like and trust. Leaders work diligently to build and guard trust in every relationship. If you break that trust, doing business, building personal relationships, earning money all become much more difficult.” J Loren Norris
“No one can do your pushups, homework, or personal growth! If you don’t possess the core value of self discipline, no one else can work hard enough for your success.” J Loren Norris
“PEOPLE MATTER. When relationships are a core value, people matter more than production, politics and profit. When relationships are not a core value, then people are not prioritized and they become expendable.” J Loren Norris
”We have all experienced fear! When a leader makes courage a core value, they acknowledge the fear and presses forward anyway. The first time on a bicycle or skateboard, the first date, the first kiss, the first job interview all of these are frightening. Courage turns them all into rewarding moments in time.” J Loren Norris
“Nothing will destroy your hope faster than not believing in yourself. If you see yourself as worthless, speak to yourself as worthless, and convince others you are worthless, your life will be worthless. Then no one else’s belief in your worth, no matter how great, will be enough to save you. Self worth is a core value no one can live without.” J Loren Norris
“Whatever you have right now in the way of accomplishments, possessions, accolades, you must be willing to let them go if you want to grow to the next level of opportunity. One cannot grasp the next trapeze whilst clinging to the current one. Leadership demands the core value of sacrifice.” 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.
