Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Those who DON’T LEARN HISTORY have little choice.
As we celebrate America’s Birthday and Independence I want every leader of every level to reflect for a moment and ask yourself “have I actually searched beyond what I was intentionally taught to discover the truth?”
Now I am not necessarily claiming a conspiracy theory, but as an American Veteran, I know I am still discovering things about my country’s history which I did not learn in school and did not stumble across in daily life.
As I have spoken with friends who are naturalized citizens, I realize how few people born in America could have passed the citizenship test.
I travel with a team to teach leadership and democracy to leaders in other nations. There are a few people on the team who are former political leaders of enormous stature. There are historians, professors and religious leaders. I learn from them EVERY TIME!!
It is true, leaders are readers. If you don’t learn history, how could you ever learn from history?
Celebrate July 4th with gusto! Have a family picnic, go fishing, camping, imbibing or how ever you choose to celebrate, just remember those who sacrificed EVERYTHING for you to have the privilege and get to know the WHY behind their sacrifice.

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.
