PEOPLE ARE PRETTY SIMPLE - IN GENERAL - THEY REPEAT BEHAVIOR WHICH IS ACCEPTED AND REWARDED THEY CEASE BEHAVIOR WHICH IS NOTRead Now
“One of the challenges we face across the globe in 2020 is the reality that we are seeing the second or thirds generation of people who did not experience immediate and swift negative consequences for bad choices leading to bad behavior. The result is an expectation of “getting away with it.” The increasing level of defiance, disregard for the well being of others, and disrespect for the rule of law is seen at every level, in every culture, country and community around the world. The continuation of this mindset, attitude and behavior will result in utter anarchy.” J Loren Norris

PEOPLE ARE PRETTY SIMPLE - IN GENERAL - THEY REPEAT BEHAVIOR WHICH IS ACCEPTED AND REWARDED THEY CEASE BEHAVIOR WHICH IS NOT
WHAT WOULD YOU DO MORE OF, IF YOU GOT PAID FOR IT?
Let’s put this question in the frame of your current job. You have likely heard or even said the words, “That’s not in my job description” or “They don’t pay me enough to do that.” These statements reflect an attitude which is powerful, palpable and highly contagious. This attitude permeates the work place, the family, the education system and the society at large. It is a prime example of the psychology behind the title of this article. People will do more of what they are rewarded for doing. They will often REFUSE to do what they are not handsomely rewarded for doing.
Want more gifts from your spouse? Express overwhelming appreciation for the smallest gifts and over time the size, volume, magnitude and value of the gifts will increase.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CHANGED YOUR BEHAVIOR?
Honestly, what was the motivating factor the last time you made a major change in your life? Did you quit smoking? Give up alcohol? Stop yelling at your family? Leave a job or career? What made you do it? Was it the lack of genuine pay off - no reward for continuing? Or was it the threat of negative consequences? Behavioral modification can be accomplished through a negative consequence almost every time. In many cases, just the threat of negative consequences alone will suffice to alter behavior, provided such threats have been carried out in the past. Idle threats don’t carry much power toward change.
Counting to THREE, six dozen times, with no actual consequences trains a child to believe the consequences are never coming. Time out as a punishment is often quickly weighed in the mind as an acceptable consequence for taking the toy, breaking the dish, throwing a tantrum or even fighting at school.
Like the $25 fine for parking in handicap spaces - its rationalized as an acceptable “price to pay for convenience” and “Low risk - high reward equation.”
HOW SOON DO YOU BEGIN TO INFLUENCE BEHAVIOR?
In any relationship, boundaries and expectations should be among the first conversations ever conducted. In parenting, the first time you see them respond to the word NO in a firm tone, discipline has begun. In a dating relationship, the same is true. When the behavior does not change in response to a firm verbal reprimand, physical response may be required. If the behavior still persists, negative consequences will ensue. On the job, in society, in the courts or in congress, the same rule of social contract has been in place as long as humans have lived in societies together.
One of the challenges we face across the globe in 2020 is the reality that we are seeing the second or third generation of people who did not experience immediate and swift negative consequences for bad choices leading to bad behavior. The result is an expectation of “getting away with it.” The increasing level of defiance, disregard for the well being of others, and disrespect for the rule of law is seen at every level, in every culture, country and community around the world. The continuation of this mindset, attitude and behavior will result in utter anarchy.
Leaders MUST begin to address and adjust the attitudes displayed in every splinter of society if we hope to see the tide stemmed and civility returned.

The only thing more contagious than the common cold is attitude. Attitude can infect the morale of the work force, disrupt the work flow, and ultimately impact the bottom line through diminished productivity.
Infectious, disruptive attitudes can start with a simple comment taken out of context or conversation over heard by a customer. The final cost of these communication stumbles can be enormous. Ranging from lost time and productivity to lost customers, attitude can do more damage than a north Texas spring storm and with less warning.
Good news! Attitude is easily detected and corrected when you master the Attitude Hack.
Attitude Hack is a leadership development course for teams from 5-500 people. Attitude Hack has been trained for Parliament Members in the DRCongo, Graduate Students of the University of Kinshasa, the National PTA, Georgia State PTA and GE to name a few.

I won’t tell you what to do. It's your choice because your attitude is your choice.
When a thought comes into your head, what you focus on or don't focus on, will make you who you are. Those thoughts will become beliefs, then become attitudes, then become actions, then become behaviors, and finally become your circumstances. From the thought to the circumstances, you have many chances to lead your own life. The key strategic place you have an opportunity to control life is in your own attitude, because attitude is a choice, a choice of thought.

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.
