IS CHIVALRY DEAD? WHY SHOULD I USE IT? by J Loren Norris
If chivalry means manipulation, dominating, abusing, taking advantage of others, then it should be “dead”. If the meaning of chivalry is exercising curtesy and politeness and friendliness with nothing to gain but becoming a better human - LONG LIVE CHIVALRY!
Many people were victimized by “old world idea” of the dark ages such as the inquisition, human tour the, barbarism, Attila the Hun and the burning of people at the stake and so on. As a result, many people look back on the era “before enlightenment” with grimacing horror. Certainly NOTHING GOOD can come from those days.
Consider the number of children who have been put to death before their first breath, the number of women and children who have been objectified and filmed in compromising positions for the entertainment of others, the insanely vast numbers of humans sold into sex slavery and trafficked the world around, the depth and magnitude of division based on sexism, racism and religious differences. ‘Enlightenment“ hasn't proved much kinder to humans in history than the dark ages.
Because humans are selfish. Because humans want what’s best for themselves (even if it means giving as a manipulative tool to get it). Because humans are mean to each other, its in our nature.
HOWEVER, we can choose to be creative, compassionate, caring and kind. We can CHOOSE to live by a code which focuses on honor, the value of a human life, the depth of the soul and the equal appreciation of all things which LIVE in our universe. So, if not a morality based code of honor, sacrifice and service such as chivalry, what would you recommend?
Seriously, I want to hear your suggestions...

The message of Live A More Excellent Life is the compelling reason that I have found to make sacrifices, face challenges and press on in the face of ridiculous obstacles. My struggles have not been unique or even extraordinary compared to yours or those of your mentees. I know that the insights I have offered are not necessarily new and revolutionary. My experiences are merely a shadow of the human experience. It is my hope to inspire the mentors to walk with these incredible mentees in a way that will push them on to excellence.

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.
