LENSES CREATE PERCEPTIONS WHICH LEAD FROM OBSERVATIONS TO ASSUMPTIONS TO DECISIONS

Most people trust their own first hand experiences and observations over any other data or input. This results in firmly held beliefs which are nearly impossible to challenge or change because they are the observations of the holder. The real challenge occurs when someone who understands the power of linguistics provides just enough of the wrong information for a conclusion to be drawn through confirmation bias.
You may have seen it with your own eyes, heard it with your own ears, actually been there when it happened, but how can you be certain what you witnessed wasn't designed to create a predicted and contrived assumption?
Assumptions sometimes get a bad wrap because we all know what happens when we assume. However, the ability to assume as an education guess or a hypotheses is a skilled to be desired, to be honed and to be mastered. The problem is when you encounter the clever person who knows how to manipulate the data you are receiving and observing until the assumptions you own are controlled and directed to be perceived as your own, but they are in no way yours originally.
How does that person assume you are thinking of elephants in Denmark? (look it up on youtube)
Yes, when our powers of observation have been messed with and our assumptions predictably poised for us, we tend to make decisions based on "the best information we had at the time" even if that information was intentionally spoon fed misinformation. We are concerned about "doing our homework", "getting to the bottom of it", "confirming the research" before we speak out or share. What we tend to miss is the level and extent to which those who have manipulation in mind will go to cause you to believe a lie then proclaim it as truth with all your passion and ability. The decisions which follow faulty assumptions based on such malicious misleading can be disastrous on a personal, familial, local, community and even global scale.
Leaders must be aware of the tactics deployed by manipulators and take every possible measure to offset this misleading data.

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.
