“Like it or not, anyone over the age of 3 who can turn on a cell phone and hit the LIVE button has equal access to share their ideas around the world. This is extremely liberating in one sense and borderline frightening in another. Anyone can SPEAK UP - not everyone should.” J Loren Norris
THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF VOICES CLAMORING TO BE HEARD. HOW DO YOU INSURE YOURS IS A VOICE WORTH LISTENING TO?
ROAR IS A FILTER WHICH MUST BE APPLIED BY SERIOUS COMMUNICATORS
There are so many people these days who have a phone, a lamp, a microphone, and access to Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram and more... which means they now have A GLOBAL MEDIA PLATFORM.
Like it or not, anyone over the age of 3 who can turn on a cell phone and hit the LIVE button has equal access to share their ideas around the world. This is extremely liberating in one sense and borderline frightening in another. Anyone can SPEAK UP - not everyone should.
We now give the same access to attention and broadcast to a would be uni-bomber as to university professors... To waffle makers as to law makers... to judges as to judgmental loud mouths with ill intent.
Now more than ever before it is harder to verify and source truth. It is harder everyday to separate truth from opinion or covert lies. It becomes paramount for those who take up that position in front of a podcast mic or a LIVE camera to HOLD THEMSELVES ACCOUNTABLE to the highest standards.
It is also imperative that we be responsible FRIENDS of those who might intentionally or unintentionally spread salacious and inflammatory rhetoric. It is too easy with all the global access to our stream of information to see or hear something which directly fits our own confirmation biases and PROMOTE an idea that is for a malicious source. No matter how badly we want it to be true, perhaps it simply isn’t.
SO HERE’S YOUR FILTER
If you plan to share a post, article, news story or OPINION, before you hit SHARE or before you GO LIVE, ask yourself these four questions:
1. Is it RELEVANT?
Will the content I am about to spread be relevant to the people who pay attention to my thoughts and ideas? (Or am I saying it because it makes me feel better?)
2. Can I claim OWNERSHIP?
Is the story, the report, the experience something I have lived through myself, witnessed first hand or thoroughly researched? If not, its second hand lions at best. (That was a good movie)
3. Do I have AUTHORITY in this area?
Almost everyone has an opinion on almost everything, every thought, every decision. But do you have authority? Are you a quantifiable expert in the field? Will you stake your NAME, your BRAND, your REPUTATION on the accuracy of the information?
4. Am I willing to be RESPONSIBLE for how people feel about what I have to say?
In recent years, celebrities especially have voiced loudly their opinions and yet not been willing to stand behind the resulting chaos or fall out. Idle threats made at the top of their voice, accusations which held no merit at all and downright lies meant to get a rise out of a crowd. Sure anyone can RUFFLE FEATHERS - but if you were to be held to answer for how people respond to your words, would you still say it?
RESPONSIBLE also goes to INTENT.
How do you EXPECT, DESIRE or WISH for people to feel when you’re done? Hopeful? Empowered? Enlightened? Or enraged, aggravated and anxious?
Before you GO LIVE ask those questions and follow the advice of THUMPER’S MOTHER - “If you can’t say something nice...

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.
