”The fear of loss and the pain of loss can become seething anger and uncontrollable rage silently resting beneath the surface. Just watch the videos of women assaulting each other in the store over toilet tissue. Situations will arise driving people to respond in unusual ways.” J Loren Norris
WHEN FEAR AND PAIN COLLIDE THE RESULT IS A RELATIONSHIP TIME BOMB WAITING TO GO OFF...
Speculations are, more people will suffer financial loss in this season of COVID19, than will suffer the loss of their health or the loss of a loved one. When we consider the ripple effect and the long term impact of income loss, job loss and opportunity loss, the fear and pain of these losses can look like repossessions, foreclosures, divorce and even homelessness.
Most counselors and coaches can tell you anger is a dangerous thing to add to the mix of an already heart rending and frustrating season. They can also tell you ANGER IS THE RESULT OF FEAR MIXED WITH PAIN.
The fear of loss and the pain of loss can become seething anger and uncontrollable rage silently resting beneath the surface. Just watch the videos of women assaulting each other in the store over toilet tissue. Situations will arise driving people to respond in unusual ways.
As leaders in your family, your work place and your community, I encourage you to be on your guard against these moments. Watch for the anger in your own reactions. Be prepared to de-escalate and defuse situations in the home, the work place and if needed in the community at large.
If you are aware of anger rising in you, stop and ask, “What am I afraid of and what’s hurting me about this situation?”
BE A CONTRIBUTOR TO THE SOLUTION, NOT THE PROBLEM.

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.
