“An old saying tells us Americans will always get the leaders they deserve. The next ‘way we should fight’ is all about the right, the power, the obligation every US citizen has to participate in their own governance. Laziness, apathy and ignorance will only empower those who are greedy and control hungry. It’s time for al leaders to FIGHT LIKE THIS!” J Loren Norris
“The pace of change in this generation is nearing a break neck pace. Who is driving the change? Who is benefitting from the change? Who is using the change to gain power and control? Who is trying frantically to measure, manage and resist the change? These questions need to be considered by every leader at every level. The next question is, for those who see danger in the change, how do you fight back without inciting violence? The first and top priority answer is in this video.” J Loren Norris
“Its easier to wait for a leader to arrive who will take the risks and share the rewards before you charge into a new venture, idea or battle. It’s easier to keep your ideas to yourself if you fear they will bring ridicule. But when you put both of those truths together, you may find the inspiration inside you is the leader you are looking for. The leader you are waiting for is in the mirror.” J Loren Norris
“A good leader does not ‘command’ or ‘demand’ respect. They know it is earned! How do you earn respect? What is the currency required to purchase respect? RESPECT! If you want to be an influential leader who is respected, be a leader who respects others.” J Loren Norris
“I am in no way a fan of the ‘go along to get along’ theory when it requires an abandon of core values and priorities or compromise of foundational principles. But if you are not at a minimum pleasant enough to hang out with, you are not a going to be a leader through influence but through tyranny only. Knowing the difference is the measure of leadership maturity.” J Loren Norris
IF YOU WISH TO LEAD, PREPARE TO LEAD. PREPARE YOURSELF FOR THE STRUGGLE THOSE YOU INTEND TO LEAD WILL FACE.
“Leaders who are unwilling to live by the rules they impose on others should forfeit their right to lead. Immunity to rules, absolutism, double standards, and remote indictments are not leadership, they are rulership. If you intend to lead people, lead them from where they are, prepare yourself to live the life you expect them to live.” J Loren Norris
WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT YOUR FORK AND YOUR ATTITUDE WERE DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO EACHOTHER AND YOUR HEALTH??
“... Diet is not just about health for a longer life, better physiology, or better physique. Food quality, food amount, and food cravings have a direct connection to mental health, brain speed, memory function and learning. All of these are a direct impact on the quality and ability to lead others well.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW THE WAY, SHOW THE WAY & GO THE WAY... sounds good but what does it look like in real life?
“If you are a leader offering solutions, guidance or ideas of influence without first getting to the real diagnosis at the root of the problem, you are a dangerous leader. Like a doctor who puts a cast on your arm because they never asked how long you’ve had a headache.” J Loren Norris
“It’s hard enough to maintain harmony in a work environment or organization under normal circumstances. Add the challenges brought on by a global pandemic, international political unrest, globalized businesses and the pressure of political elites who have strong influence and stronger opinions and you have a recipe for hostility. Leaders must identify and accentuate the common ground, the core values, the driving principles and the shared passions of each member of the organization to drive toward progress while not allowing outside voices to control the conversation.” J Loren Norris
“HEY LEADER! Your good intentions are not enough. Your intention must be followed by comparable action. All’s Well That Ends Well, is not a trust worthy phrase either because it discounts the damage left in the wake of unintended consequences. Intentions, thoughts, attitude, actions, and behavior must be the consistent string of events in a leader’s life.” J Loren Norris
“Leadership under a representative republic means selecting people who represent all Americans, of all races, genders, income, geography, political persuasion, education levels, to include their opinions, their concerns, their liberties, their rights. THOSE REPRESENTATIVES are to speak on the behalf of this diverse nation, not on behalf of their own wealth or personal interests alone.” J Loren Norris
”Sometimes, all the work you do to maintain your own space is never ending and near pointless because your environment is out of control. When leaders take action, that action often bleeds over into the surrounding mindsets, attitudes and expectations. We call it intentional influence. If the neighbors ‘weeds’ are invading your space, do them and yourself a favor and fertilize their ‘weeds’ to death.” J Loren Norris
“The power of individual rights, personal property rights, individual responsibility - it is not just a good idea for personal freedom, it is a solid, well recorded, significantly evidenced and proven formula for national politics.” J Loren Norris
“The number of leaders who promote a new idea, innovation, invention, process, procedure, or policy who will never be expected to live under the conditions created by their idea is mind numbing. Often the results will not be measurable or obvious for decades, but the fame associated with the new idea is a really all certain people are concerned with. Don’t be that leader.” J Loren Norris
”The experiences of your life contain value for the quality of life for those who follow behind you. As a leader, your voice is both profound and impactful. The only way your story will not transform your circle of influence is if you remain silent. If you are uncomfortable telling your story, get a coach because the chances are you’re doing it wrong.” J Loren Norris
“I have chosen to commit my resources, attention and talent to giving voice to those who feel like they are not being heard. StoryPower.tv will be the platform we deploy to offer a place for people to speak up. Will you consider sponsoring, hosting or co-promoting a stop on the StoryPower 1st Amendment Tour?” J Loren Norris
“Statements such as ‘there is no evidence’ reek of arrogance when used by leaders who know the information exists which may or may not support the claims they are contradicting. When used by members of the media, professional journalists and politicians the bias of opinion seems clear. Leaders must establish themselves in facts, data, core values and unchanging truths in such a way that the evidence becomes obvious and ‘self evident’.” J Loren Norris
“Where do we draw the line between FREE SPEECH and acceptable speech? Is it where we take offense ourselves, is it where we THINK others will take offense, is it where others tell us to take offense? Who’s voice should be silenced, marginalized, ignored? Who’s story does not matter at all? What say you?” J Loren Norris
THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN A LEADER WHO LIES IS A LEADER WHO MANIPULATES TRUTH IN AN UNTRUTHFUL WAY.
“This is not the only example of lies held as truth which have devastating effect, but it is the largest. It is also heart wrenching to know that much of the devastation could have been avoided, but cannot be reversed.” J Loren Norris
YOUR STORY IS YOUR BEST WEAPON FOR OFFENSE AND DEFENSE. THERE IS NO QUESTION WE WILL HAVE TO FIGHT - THE QUESTION IS HOW WILL WE FIGHT?
”Your story has the power to shape your brand, build your audience, enrage your competition, increase customer loyalty, raise your blood pressure, and lead to massive health issues. The key to maximizing the power of your story is finding the right place, the right audiences, the right opportunity to SHARE THAT STORY. Everyone has a story, not everyone has a ‘voice’ or a place to share their story. That’s what StoryPower.TV is all about.” J Loren Norris
”If you have ever been ‘lied on’, had someone besmirch your character, seen your reputation destroyed by malicious stories, you know that pain can consume you or cost you your career. If you are leader, you should be aware you already have a target on your back for this sort of behavior. People who want your role, your influence, your income, will often use falsehoods and misrepresentations to wrest them away from you. What will you do about it? Watch the video...” J Loren Norris
“Propaganda is one of the oldest tools for control in the history of the world. Some religious texts a would suggest the very first two humans in existence were the targets of a successful propaganda campaign which lead to their ultimate demise. Today, propagandists are still busy at work, they have simply taken on different forms and disguises. It is the role of the leader to identify and disarm propaganda which could effectively disable their team. Do your homework, please.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS MUST PREPARE THEMSELVES FOR THE OTHER PERSONS RESPONSE, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY CANNOT CONTROL IT.
“When the media, the interrogators, the public begin asking questions of your team, it can be a nerve racking moment for any leader. Unscripted answers can be unpredictable, potentially devastating, and likely based on uninformed opinion. Without being a tyrant and demanding everyone answer with canned rhetoric, controlling those answers is near impossible. It is also very important to allow team members to hold and express their open perceptions, to have their own voice. The best way to navigate these blind spots is... aahhh watch the video.” J Loren Norris
”As a leader begins to experience success: growth in influence, income and impact, there will be no shortage of people seeking to call themselves ‘friend.’ In fact, friends will come out of the woodwork on every side. People who have been in the shadows through all the pain, heartache and struggle will sidle up next to a leader who is fresh in the spotlight. Building an inner circle of friends who will tell you hard truth is emotionally grueling work. It is also one of the most important assignments a leader will ever tackle.” J Loren Norris
PEOPLE IGNORE ABUSES THEY BECOME DESENSITIZED TO... ITS A PROCESS CALLED GROOMING. THE USE OF TRIGGERS IS INTENTIONAL!
“The need for control is an addiction that every leader and politician must resist. Leadership is about influence not control. Control is a form of abuse which requires manipulation and coercion. In order for total control to exist, the process of grooming must precede the request for surrender because no one will naturally give up their liberty without it.” 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.
