“...the bridge of greatness does not always mean crossing from a great athlete to a great politician. Nor does it mean every great scientist will have communication and relational skills to be a teacher, Sheldon??” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW THEIR LANE AND THEY FOCUS THEIR EFFORTS THERE.
It’s easy to think “a pro at something” is a pro at everything. That is seldom the case. A great sales person does not always make a great sales rep. A great ball player does not always make a great coach. A great student does not always make a great teacher.
Please understand, the marks of greatness are often exhibited on many levels. Any high achiever who is willing to put in the hard work, demonstrates the toughness needed to see a project though and shows up for the long arduous practices will be a high achiever in more than one area.
A disciplined athlete may be great at more than one sport. An incredible scientist may be good at math as well as physics and other academic disciplines. A great orator my also be an incredible thinker and writer. A persuasive attorney may be great at politics or teaching as well. But the bridge of greatness does not always mean crossing from a great athlete to a great politician. Nor does it mean every great scientist will have communication and relational skills to be a teacher, Sheldon??
But leaders must understand their strength zones as well. Elite as they may be, most often leaders have one or two areas where the really shine. They should focus their efforts in those areas and delegate the areas the don’t. Humility to know the difference is an absolute must.

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.
