"No one escapes this life without have been influenced. No one manages to slide through in total isolation. When we think back to the people who held influence in our lives, we often make statements such as “Your kindness truly impacted my life.”" J Loren Norris
“IMPACT IS INFLUENCE IN ACTION” WHAT IS SOURCE OF YOUR IMPACT?
From parents to school teachers, from social media to peers, from marketing campaigns to comments of random strangers young people grow up with various levels of influencers in their life. We all do, we all have and we all are influencers on some level.
No one escapes this life without have been influenced. No one manages to slide through in total isolation. When we think back to the people who held influence in our lives, we often make statements such as “Your kindness truly impacted my life.”
We also know people who have been bullies, or they have been bullied and just the hurtful words alone have left scars, like emotional bruises, on the hearts of victims. Impact.
In many ways, the unseeable energy in relationships is a powerful form of influence which leads to great impact.
INFLUENCE has a risk factor. As an influencer, you risk creating and exacerbating relationships you are not seeking. (This is how powerful and charismatic people end up in adulterous affairs.) This risk goes the other way as well, the risk of being influenced can lead to abuse, manipulation and coercion.
Trust me when I say, if you DO THE THINGS NEED TO GROW YOUR INFLUENCE you cannot help but make an impact in peoples lives. The question is this: will you be a good manager and leader of that influence and impact or will you use that influence strictly for your own gain?
Establish your INTENTION to do good, to add value, to influence well before you grow your influence to the level of impact.

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.
