“If you have a mentor or a coach, the best sure fired way to free yourself of their burdensome requests is to ignore their insights and fail to follow their advice or instruction.” J Loren Norris
DO YOU FOLLOW THE INPUT OF A MENTOR?
Many people underestimate the value of a mentor. Most because they have never had an effective mentor or coach. Many because the discount the advice of a mentor or coach as just “someone else’s opinion.” Some because they simply are not teachable.
Mentors and coaches will often test the waters of a would be client by using an application, an assessment or simply asking some tough questions in the initial meeting. How one responds to these probes will be generally indicative of their future response to challenging instruction.
If you have a mentor or a coach, the best sure fired way to free yourself of their burdensome requests is to ignore their insights and fail to follow their advice or instruction.
Two things you should know about a serious coach or mentor in this process.
1. The instruction or advice they use to test your veracity may seem silly or simplistic ad an absolute waste of time. Do it any way.
2. If you have already invested in a scheduled amount of coaching or mentoring when you opt to cease following instruction, you are very unlikely to recoup your investment. Don’t waste your money or their time and effort. If you are unteachable, don’t blame anyone else for your lack of results.
Follow the instructions and advice of your mentor or coach. If you do and the instructions don’t work... well that’s another lesson for another day.

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.
