“Truth and logic have no merit in mob mentality or peer pressure. The entire concept of thinking is overridden by feeling. If I can make you emotional enough, your reaction won’t allow clear, logical thinking. This psychological FACT is the reason we have laws on the books which define heinous crimes under a special circumstances category of “crimes of passion.” J Loren Norris
IF YOU NEEDED TO CONVINCE ME THAT BROCCOLI WAS THE BOUNTIFUL, NUTRITIOUS GREEN LEAFY PLANT READILY AVAILABLE IN EVERY LAWN, HOW WOULD YOU DO IT?
There are some ideas which benefit one crowd over another. There are certain ideologies which bear no truth whatsoever, but the fact that people believe them and are willing to invest their time, talent, reputation and wealth to see the world come to accept these ideologies gives them weight and merit - not substance but merit. Not truth, but merit. Not hope or help or benefit for all, but merit. Meaning, as wrong as they are, as false as they are, they must still be acknowledged and countered or confronted.
Perhaps your parents, like mine, would ask the ridiculously rhetorical question: “If EVERYONE or all of your friends jumped off the cliff, would you jump too?”
The problem was simple. Parents, with the benefit of age, wisdom and supposed maturity, PRESUMED that logic would prevail in the answering of the question. These parents SEVERELY underestimated the power of peer pressure or the MOB MENTALITY.
Truth and logic have no merit in mob mentality or peer pressure. The entire concept of thinking is overridden by feeling. If I can make you emotional enough, your reaction won’t allow clear, logical thinking. This psychological FACT is the reason we have laws on the books which define heinous crimes under a special circumstances category of “crimes of passion.”
If you must convince people to act in a certain way, believe a certain thing, carry on a certain idea, the ends will always justify the means. If you have to lie to them, trick them, deceive them, mislead them, seed the crowd with true believers who would risk life and limb for the promulgation of the lie - well, alls fair in love and war. ((Like the journalist who latter admitted his entire story about a particular candidate was 100% made up but said “So what if I have lost my career, at least that %$%#@ isn’t our president.”)))
Whip the crowd into a frenzy emotionally, then turn them on your enemy! Its is a manipulation of emotion, a form of hypnotism, the media are masters at this form of persuasion.
Never underestimate the driving force of a long range agenda. Leaders who cannot recognize the short lived lies which are used to direct and redirect long term goals will fall victim to both.

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.
