“So many issues, challenges, disagreements, arguments, divisions and debates are driven by differences in understanding. We call it a communication gap. What if that gap is intentionally being created by the misappropriation of meaning?” J Loren Norris
“Its terribly easy to make excuses for allowing your dreams to slip away into the vapor of the morning fog. Its awfully cruel for a simpleton who has no dreams, to dash yours upon the rocks or to mock them into oblivion. When a dream is entrusted to you, it’s heart wrenchingly common to experience the dread of inadequacy until it is dismissed as an apparition.” J Loren Norris
“Truth and logic have no merit in mob mentality or peer pressure. The entire concept of thinking is overridden by feeling. If I can make you emotional enough, your reaction won’t allow clear, logical thinking. This psychological FACT is the reason we have laws on the books which define heinous crimes under a special circumstances category of “crimes of passion.” J Loren Norris

IN THIS TIME OF TRANSITION AND TRANSFORMATION, Is it time for an educational revolution?Read Now
“Do we draw from within the talents and gifts of individuals? Do we expose young children to opportunities to become the WHO they were crafted to be? Do we shove them all into the same sausage grinder and expect to measure performance based on outcome only?” J Loren Norris

“If you “grew up” in an era when racism was common, when bigotry dominated Main Street, when sexism was “how business was done” then the stories you heard about negotiating a deal, closing a sale, getting the big win, WERE ALL TAINTED, skewed and corrupt!!!” J Loren Norris
“A few people realize the idea which came to them is NOT ABOUT THEM. It is about the significant impact that idea could have on the world. They see the benefit to humanity, world peace, saving the planet, empowering the underprivileged, creating genuine opportunity and they don’t care who gets the credit, so they leap to action.” J Loren Norris
“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
“It has been true of almost every major innovation, from Henry Ford and the automobile assembly line, to Ray Crock and the franchise model which shifted the fast food market. Certain elements will always dominate innovation in any business or industry...” J Loren Norris
IF THE CRISIS WERE OVER IN A FEW SHORT WEEKS, WILL YOU HAVE INVESTED THE TIME? PASSED THE TIME? OR WASTED THE TIME?Read Now
“Take heed now!! Invest the time you have now!! Time is not waiting for anyone and if you are not investing this time to prepare for next, you will find yourself in the shadows of a day gone by wondering where it has gone.” J Loren Norris
WEEDS GROW STRONGER WHILE THE GRASS IS DORMANT. HOW DO YOU APPLY THIS METAPHOR TO THE PANDEMIC?Read Now
“While the world of business activity is dormant due to this global pandemic, don’t allow the weeds to take over. Business will resume. Work will be available. Relationships will be reignited. However, JUST LIKE THE DORMANT LAWN they will all be suffering from an infestation of weeds!” J Loren Norris
“It is a strange psychological phenomenon! That’s what makes a well constructed paper tiger so dangerous. From a distance, it looks real! The light is just right. The sounds are perfectly in tune. The expectations of the threat so well articulated, even if the tiger never moves... WE ALL JUMP with just the right nudge.” J Loren Norris
“There really are cures which are worse than the illness they address. The are paper tiger slayers who are significantly more dangerous than the paper tiger!! AWARENESS IS THE KEY to transformation - sometimes awareness is required to PREVENT a transformation which is ultimately undesirable. IMHO - We don’t need flame throwers to defeat paper tigers!” J Loren Norris
“When a good storyteller uses properly placed emotive application of sights, and sounds they can invite you into a moment you haven’t considered in decades. They can also allow you to imagine a moment you have not yet experienced with such intense emotion you will have the sense it is a moment relived.” 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.
