"The old adage, “How you do anything is how you do everything” should be considered. If you fake it from the stage, if you must manipulate through illusion to “win the crowd”, HOW REAL is what you have to offer in the end?" J Loren Norris
WHAT VALUE HAS A FAKE CRY WHEN YOU’RE PRESENTING?
If you’re in the audience and the speaker or teacher cries over a story that has no real emotion, how do your respond?
Here are a few realities of leadership communication which many people face because they have been given bad advice.
THE BAD ADVICE OFTEN SOUNDS LIKE THIS:
1. EMOTION IS POWERFUL WHEN SPEAKING
2. EMOTION SHOULD BE USED WHEN SPEAKING
3. BE EMOTIONAL WHEN SPEAKING EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO FAKE IT
Here’s the real challenge with the above advise. Statements one and two ARE TRUE and they create the illusion that statement three must be true as well. In reality, fake emotion in a speech is the same level of inauthentic and incongruity as any other form of manipulation.
Leaders who emotionally manipulate others to gain or maintain control are seldom of ever seen in a good light. Speakers who use conjured or fake emotions run the same risk when the people they speak to find out.
The old adage, “How you do anything is how you do everything” should be considered. If you fake it from the stage, if you must manipulate through illusion to “win the crowd”, HOW REAL is what you have to offer in the end?

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.
