"If one minute you have a dream to build, to create, to do, to become incredibly fantastic and you follow that very moment with fear, anxiety and doubt, you will find the subtlety of doubt as powerful as the under toe. " J Loren Norris
DOUBLE MINDED? - LIKE WAVES OF THE SEA?? WHAT????
The tide scrubs the shoreline. Washing certain things onto the shore and other things off the shore.
The under the current can sweep you off your feet and out to sea with such subtle force you’re unable to resist or respond until it’s too late.
Your thoughts, your mental energy are the same!!
If one minute you have a dream to build, to create, to do, to become incredibly fantastic and you follow that very moment with fear, anxiety and doubt, you will find the subtlety of doubt as powerful as the under toe.
You will also find the energy you spend fighting against doubt, against what you are trying to avoid requires more from you than the energy to seek better, to create, to build and to move forward.
Fighting that thing you don’t want to do will wear you out, leave you defeated and be the embodiment of “hope deferred” which makes the heart sick.
If you want to be free of what you don’t want to do, STOP THINKING ABOUT IT - even hating it gives it power over you. RATHER choose something you LOVE MORE THAN YOU HATE THE VICE and focus a doubles down energy there instead.
If you wrestle with that practice. GET A COACH. That’s what we’re here for. The John Maxwell Team alone has 30,000+ coaches to choose from. If I am not your guy just say so, I will point you in a better direction.
But to get started, choose something to love more than you hate what you’re trying to resist.

I won’t tell you what to do. It's your choice because your attitude is your choice.
When a thought comes into your head, what you focus on or don't focus on, will make you who you are. Those thoughts will become beliefs, then become attitudes, then become actions, then become behaviors, and finally become your circumstances. From the thought to the circumstances, you have many chances to lead your own life. The key strategic place you have an opportunity to control life is in your own attitude, because attitude is a choice, a choice of thought.

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.
