”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 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.Read Now
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?Read Now
”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.Read Now
“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!Read Now
“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
“Challenge accepted! Famous last words? Or the motivation of the bold to take a risk against all obvious odds. When leaders charge into the unknown or into innovation, they need to seek and maintain the balance between boldness and brazenness. Leaders must also be ahead of the curve of the need when seeking new solutions to problems that have not yet been discovered. Challenge accepted!” J Loren Norris
“Opportunities also abound which will waste your time, abuse your talent, rob you of your treasure and demand all of your attention. What process, system, method, or rubrics do you lose to decide which opportunities are ideal for you? If you do not have an answer to this question, schedule some time to chat with me and I will get you started.” J Loren Norris
MINOR ADJUSTMENTS OF THE MYOPIC LEADER CAN LEAD TO THE BROKENNESS OF COLLATERAL DAMAGE FOR THOSE THEY LEAD.Read Now
“What are you missing in your “camera angles” of life and leadership? Until you change the perspective, focus and lighting, there will be things you simply cannot see. Just because you cannot see the issues in the background doesn’t mean no one sees them. It’s altogether possible the entire world is looking and asking: “Why doesn’t he or she deal with that issue?” J Loren Norris
“Many coaches, teachers, trainers and consultants will sell you a course or program, deliver their content and mosey on down the road. Their commitment is oriented to the sale more than the transformation of the buyer. I know this is a grossed generalization, unless you are the buyer. “ J Loren Norris
“In the world we live in, everything is a war, literally or figuratively. In many cases, the war begins and ends with words. In some cases, ‘thems fighting words’ becomes the battle cry leading to the loss of life and property. Opinions, contradictory facts, emotional flare ups, all of these rest in the bosom the ever powerful narrative.” J Loren Norris
”Leaders must maintain the ability to accept the mistakes, errors and even differing opinions of those they lead. Diversity demands the open mindedness and maturity to realize no one has a lock on the best ideas. Often, the greatest ideas come from the least likely places. Grace allows us to hear, to respect and to appreciate people and ideas from a wide cross section of humanity.” J Loren Norris
“Few things are as frustrating for a leader, a parent or anyone as defending yourself against false accusations. However, the cancel culture and other narrative based agendas leave a very similar sense of emotional dissonance when attacking, editing or altering history, or even current events with a narrative which does not resonate with the eyewitness accounts.” 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.
