GOOD LEADERS ARE PROMISE KEEPERS EVEN WHEN THE COST OF KEEPING THE PROMISE COMES AT GREAT PERSONAL EXPENSE.Read Now
“Promises are made to be kept if you’re a good leader. The cost of keeping your promises can be high financially, relationally and emotionally. But the greatest cost to keep your promise may be nothing more than convenience. Leaders who make a habit of breaking commitments just for convenience are selfish and won’t be trusted for long.” J Loren Norris
“It’s one thing to admit your faults. It’s another thing altogether to take a firm stand for your decisions when you know there will be fall out because a tough decision you made is so unpopular, even if it’s the right decision. Owning your experience is more than quoting platitudes. Ownership leads to solid decisions which most people have opinions on, but they are not qualified to make themselves.” J Loren Norris
“If you’re a leader and you cannot discern a distraction that is nothing more than an unplanned challenge and a rope a dope - a planned and intentional distraction designed to redirect attention from where it’s needed - you’re already in trouble. If you are a leader unwilling to acknowledge there are people with maleficent intent who vie for you attention only to destroy you, you are simply naive.” J Loren Norris.
LEADERSHIP IS A TOUGH POSITION. IT IS A CALLING, AN OPPORTUNITY, A CHALLENGE SOMETIMES A BURDEN ALWAYS A GIFT.Read Now
“A leader who is constantly having to survive the blows of life is a leader who has not identified the blind spots and weakness which give opportunity to the opponent to strike. Good leaders learn to bob and weave to avoid the blows, but the also look for team members who have strength and skills to cover their blindside and guard their weaknesses.” J Loren Norris
“We have been creating video content from teaching to interviews since 2015. More than 1,000 videos have been created and yet today’s social media mindset tends to keep that content in the shadows. Even paid distribution is limited or out right rejected without explanation. Today we signed an agreement for video content distribution on a network where our style of content is welcomed, appreciated and even encouraged. To say we are excited is an understatement. As soon as the subscription page is ready for you to sign up, we will let you know.” J Loren Norris
“The story is the narrative and the narrative is a driven message used to manipulate the past, criticize or endorse the present and direct the future. If the results of the narrative are negative and dangerous then leaders should be challenging the narrative with a positive story strong enough to restore hope!” J Loren Norris
WHAT VALUES HAVE YOU ESTABLISHED FOR YOURSELF WHICH YOU ALSO TEACH AND DEMONSTRATE BEFORE THOSE YOU LEAD?Read Now
“All core values have an origin because there is nothing new under the sun. Leaders must research the history, the validity and the results of the values they adhere to and teach. World views and values go hand in hand. Warning: a haphazard or convenience based choice of values is a sure bet to fail. “ J Loren Norris
“It’s never too early to lead because todays kids are tomorrows leaders. We know that. It almost goes without saying. However, when we see kids stuck by the eyeball to their digital devices, scared to speak to an adult eye to eye, determined to get their way without concern for others, we realize we have a problem Houston. If we want to see the hope of a solid future in the free world, we need to start now preparing leaders in elementary students.” J Loren Norris
“Those who are determined to reshape world cultures, governments and societies do so by starting early in the life of those they wish to reshape. From K-12 to post graduate work, the student learns what is taught - and normally nothing more - the teachers’ philosophy, world view, value systems and personal preference or pet peeves become the primary shape of the young people of today. Leaders must voice, demonstrate and live their own MORAL VALUES for the young people to witness and experience.” J Loren Norris
“No product or service has garnered as much profit as the commodity of influence. Leaders beware! When your influence grows, so will the potential for corruption. The more people notice the power you possess to sway the decisions of others, the more likely they will pursue you to do their bidding. Yes, much money can be made as an influencer. The question a leading influencer must ask is, at what cost?” J Loren Norris
“If you speak, do, recommend, or suggest and people follow in their own words, actions and attitudes, then you are an influencer and therefore a leader. If you are a leader with influence, you shape culture. The question you should be asking yourself is this: If I see this idea, attitude or behavior duplicated and repeated for two weeks, two years or two generations, will that be a good thing?” 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.
