LEADERS NEED TO BREATHE.
“Leaders will suffer significant effects of stress without taking time to breathe, find white space for the mind and reflect deeply on their actions and reactions. The body handles stress poorly, even when you are not cognitively aware you are stressed. Before you lose your cool, fly off the handle, make rash decisions or have a cardiac event TAKE A BREAK and take a breath.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW ONE MUST NOT LIVE OFF THE OPINION OF OTHERS.
“Many people fail to thrive because they allow the unqualified opinions of others to sway their belief about themselves. The stories we tell ourselves and the stories we others about ourselves shape what we believe to be true about us. The stories others tell about us - that’s our brand. As leaders we must manage the narrative at home, at work and at large for ourselves and our team.” J Loren Norris

LEADERS KNOW DIS IS A ROOT.
“I know this as a matter of reality: every action has a reaction. That goes for attitudes as well. If leaders do not draw the line and clearly monitor it, consequences will be drastic. Draw the line. Announce the consequences. Enforce the penalties. That’s one aspect of leadership many have shied away from.” J Loren Norris.
LEADERS KNOW TEACHING AN OLD DOGS NEW TRICKS IS DIFFICULT FOR A REASON
“If you desire to make radical, transformative change in a large group of people you must start with early adopters. Those are generally found among the youngest and most impressionable people because they are most open to new ideas, not yet set in their ways and willing to try almost anything when it feels right to them. The more seasoned among societies tend to trust their expertise and past experiences to validate what will work over their emotions or cultural pressures. Old dogs and new tricks? Not easy to do.” J Loren Norris

LEADERS WATCH THEIR FRIENDS MORE CLOSELY THAN STRANGERS TO PREVENT ENEMIES
“Friendships should be great investments of time, energy and emotion. The effort exerted to maintain a strong friendship will have a great return on investment when done well. Friends will watch your back, remain dedicated to your success, speak health to your romantic relationships and perhaps even work for you. The good leader will know where to draw the line between loyal friends and loyal employees.” J Loren Norris

LEADERS KNOW MORE THAN THEY SAY - BUT IT STILL WEIGHS HEAVY IN THEIR DECISION MAKING
“A good leader knows the power of a poker face! The ability to hear, see, know, understand and still keep your opinion a secret is a great tool for leadership. Not everything a leader thinks should be expressed. Not every stoic emotional response means IDK. When observing a team or a crowd, be willing to ask and answer questions of those who appear to be least engaged. They may very well know more than they say.” J Loren Norris.

LEADERS RECOGNIZE WHEN A TEAM MEMBER IS READY TO LAUNCH VS PROMOTE VS REMAIN A FOUNDATION.
“Leaders and team members alike are HUMANS. This means relationships can be complicated and complex. Some people are ‘with you’ for life. These people believe in you, your vision, your mission, and your way of doing business. Others want to gather from you all the insight and opportunity they can then move along. A leader who cannot determine the difference will not know who to launch, who to promote and who to hold on to.” J Loren Norris

LEADERS KNOW THE VICTIM VICTIMIZER GAME IS ULTIMATELY A NO WINNER STALEMATE
“The number of people who suffer with victim mentality seems to be growing daily. The challenges of culture, society, politics, education and economics reveal the observable disparity and damage of inequality. The real issue rests in the sad truth that many people find victimhood both comfortable and profitable. Leaders need to help those they influence to identify their uniqueness and to maximize their potential. Equity of outcome may be a myth but equity of opportunity rests in living your fullness in your greatest gifts!” J Loren Norris

LEADERS KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PASSIONATE PURSUIT OF A CAUSE AND GENUINE CORE VALUES
“When the ‘cause dejour’ drives the passions of your team, the power behind your core values might be challenged. The ability to maintain the focus on the cause of your organization requires awareness, devotion and intention. Leaders must know the difference and stand their ground to direct the passions of those they lead.” J Loren Norris.

LEADERS WHO DON'T STAND THEIR GROUND WILL FIND THEMSELVES ON SINKING GROUND OR SHRINKING GROUND.
“The stories we tell, tell the world all they need to know about us. We can only deflect the false narratives, bad ideas, misinformation and masked agendas when we are firmly grounded in our own values. Values and passion are not the same. One can be passionately wrong and yet determined to express their passion in a persuasive manner until they succeed at leading others astray. Good leaders stand their ground in the face of confusion and adversity rather than ceding the ground to fleeting and whimsical notions. ” J Loren Norris.
LEADERS KNOW INNOVATION AND INVENTION ARE NOT THE SAME AS ADULTERATION.
“It takes great clarity to see an adulterated version of an original, especially three to for iterations away from the core. This truth is evident across the board from culture to politics to education to economic policy to monetary theory. The corrosive manipulation of sexuality, the principles of leadership, the power and authority of relationship structures et al will destroy civilization as we know it. We need to remember and perpetuate ideological theories based on the natural laws they were built on.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW WHEN TO GET OUT IN FRONT
“No matter how good you are as a leader, one trait and skill you share with other effective leaders, even the ones who are genuinely not good people, is the ability to communicate an effective narrative. Using the story to linguistically put yourself and your organization in the most favorable light is job #1 of effective leaders. If you are second to the table of narrative distribution, you are already too late.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS SHOULD ENDEAVOR TO INCREASE AWARENESS OF THEIR OTHER SIDE
“If you’re human you have a dark side. If you’re a leader you have faults, short comings, room for improvement and blind spots. You must spend the emotional energy and focused time to identify and rectify those areas. If you do not address those issues, you will never shine as bright as you could from every facet of your personality. There will also be important people you will remain unable to connect with until you become aware and take action.” J Loren Norris

LEADERS ARE NEEDED EVEN MORE WHEN THE LINE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL IS BLURRED BEHIND INTENTIONS
“Good vs bad or good vs evil is hard enough to discern on a regular daily basis. When we add the art of deception or agendas hidden behind questionable intentions, it takes well honed skills of people reading to mete out the truth of good or bad. Leaders must pursue the ability to interpret, clarify and strategize the mine field of disguised intentions.” J Loren Norris

LEADERS MUST BE ALERT TO ALL SURROUNDINGS WHEN TRUTH IS LONGER THE POINT.
”It is one thing to speak an inaccuracy for lack of knowledge, to be more accurate, to speak inaccuracies out of ignorance. It is an entirely different thing to speak non truth for the purpose of deceit and misdirection. The darkest form of misinformation is that which challenges long established, credible, provable fact simply because it does not comply with common causes and modern social expectations.” J Loren Norris
WHY DO LEADERS FEEL GOOD WHEN THEY DO GOOD THINGS FOR OTHERS?
“Leaders have great results when they are guided by good intentions to truly help others. Leaders, whether hands on, social, cultural, business or political who use tools to alter the emotional state or biophysical state of those they lead, have results which should be held in question IMHO. Motives and intent are as important as the way you make people feel. Leaders are responsible for all of these at once.” J Loren Norris
WHO HOLDS LEADERS AT THE VERY TOP ACCOUNTABLE?
“There are times when leaders feel like their behavior is above reproach. There are also times when they know their behavior is reprehensible but BEYOND reproach. This will cause an incredible sense of entitlement and arrogance in a leader who feels above the law and beyond the reach of justice. Leaders and those under their influence should be clear in this. Justice will always come! Often justice will come just in time, when it doesn’t, justice will without fail, come in eternity. Justice is undeniable, so be accountable NOW while you have time to apologize and make amends.” J Loren Norris

LEADERS KNOW EVERY TEAM MEMBER IS A HUMAN - WITH UNIQUE EMOTIONS, OPINIONS AND IDEAS
“When it comes to things outside our control, many people would put their own emotions in that category. They would be wrong. But emotions of others would definitely meet that definition. Everyone you influence has their own feelings, opinions and ideas. A leader insisting the superiority of their emotions, opinions and ideas is a recipe for disaster. Give people space to experience their own while not allowing their emotions to control you.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW NOT EVERY CUSTOMER IN NEED IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT.
”Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. This old adage speaks volumes about the choices we make and how we make them. Whether sales, leadership or coaching, we should all ask, NOT can I do this job, meet this need, provide this service? Instead we must be asking SHOULD I do this, can I do it better than anyone else, is this client a good fit? Life is too short to waste on bad relationships and a bad client relationship is not exempt.” J Loren Norris

LEADERS WHO KNOW THE VALUE OF TRANSPARENCY ALSO KNOW DECEPTION IS HARD TO MAINTAIN OVER TIME
“If you can’t remember what you said a week ago, a year ago or a decade ago and that scares you, transparency is an issue for you and integrity might be as well. If you want the peace of knowing you won’t be help accountable for past utterances, that is delusional. If you really want to live at peace with yourself, your conscience and others, learn to be consistent with transparent truth and deception will not haunt you.” 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.
