“Opportunities to lead are often hidden not behind the title, the job description, the pay raise, the invitation to take the stage, but in the casual daily relationships. Remember to lead when you a moment to make an influential impact in the life of someone near you.” J Loren Norris
raw audio IS IT SELF HELP AND SELF EMPOWERMENT OR SOMETHING ELSE? BRAINWASHED? MANIPULATED? CULT-LIKE?
“Awareness and trust are the key difference between being helped and being had.”
“The best laid plans of mice and men... Every battle plan is good until fifteen minutes after conflict with the enemy, Every leader faces the challenge of presenting a plan, strategy or new direction and dealing with the opposition which is inevitable. Good leaders consider the optics, perceptions, intentions and biases of the end user as well as the implementers of the plan before presenting it for final application.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW WHEN THEY ARE BEING DECEIVED - PLAYED - TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF AND HOW TO REDIRECT THE EFFORT.
“Leaders don’t get to be leaders because they are clueless. When you know this, you know the corruption which occurs on their watch was either more than they could handle or something they were complicit in. Leaders have the responsibility to expose, dismantle and dispose of injustice, deceit, and unethical behavior,” J Loren Norris
ONE OF THE GREATEST FREEDOMS IN HUMAN HISTORY IS THE FREEDOM TO BE WRONG AND DISCOVER IT ON YOUR OWN.
“I was wrong. I stand corrected. I am sorry. These are hard words to say. The power of these words in the mouth of a leader are inestimable. The ability to admit wrong is second in value only to the FREEDOM TO BE WRONG. When every decision in your life is made for you, you are not free. I would prefer to STAND CORRECTED than to kneel to suppression.” J Loren Norris
“Work is about meaning, purpose, value and appreciation. Yes, its nice to get paid, but the real value is in the power to build self esteem and to see the fruits of serious labor. Leaders offer the real opportunity behind work, not just the money which might come from it.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS WILL LEAVE BEHIND MORE THAN IDEAS, BOOKS, LIBRARIES AND MONEY! WHAT WILL YOU BE REMEMBERED FOR? #leadingleaderspodcast 10-8-20
“To be memorable leader, you must be intentional about the impressions you make on total strangers who can do nothing to improve your standing. It is altogether possible to be gone but not forgotten. It is also possible to be forgotten before you’re gone.” J Loren Norris
“If you could choose your way of life, would that make you vote? If you could choose the country or type of country you. live in, would that make you vote? If you could simply believe what the different political parties tell you about the future they have in mind for YOUR LIFE, would that make you vote?” All of these are BETTER REASONS to vote than the agreement with or approval of a particular personality.” J Loren Norris
“The energy you bring to life is often the energy you get from life. Anxiety, depression, frustration, anger, rage all have a unique energy signature. Peace, calm, unity, harmony also have a signature, a frequency and a direct relationship to how you lead. Your emotional state and your ability to experience harmony are synonymous. Guard your energy well.” J Loren Norris
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO CUSTOMER SERVICE, EMPLOYEE DILIGENCE, LOYALTY TO THE BUSINESS? #leadingleaderspodcast 10-5-20
“The bottom line of your business is directly tied to the quality of your leadership team. Customer service failure is a LEADERSHIP failure. Managers who do not possess the leadership skills to delegate authority, train proper, applicable jobs skills and manage employee attitudes will see a downturn in customer service and eventually in business.” J Loren Norris
“Strategies and tactics are different. When leaders are so focused on the goal or strategies that the lose sight for the purpose of their tactics, missteps are inevitable. Focus on mission is critical but must not become myopic.” J Loren Norris
“ITS NOT WHAT YOU THINK... that’s an understatement. Politics is a power and control game. Money is the trophy, people are the pawns to be moved and manipulated. If you think the election is about two different personalities you have taken the bait. There is far more at stake than Roe V Wade, ACA, justice for Breonna. Not to minimize those things, but those issues will be glitter in a hurricane by comparison. Get informed. Get involved.” J Loren Norris
“The agreement between the agent and the talent presumes both parties expect to make money off the other. Did you realize when it comes to your social media accounts you are the USER and the PRODUCT? Social media is the dealer or agent and sellers of products and services are the real client. So what’s being sold? Your decisions, your behavior, your interests. OK?” J Loren Norris
“You may think your value is determined by your paycheck, degree or title, but if you are a man who has brought children into the world, they will define you by the marks you leave in their life... good or bad.” J Loren Norris
“Civil society requires laws, rules and standards. The challenge for most leaders lies in applying these rules without the emotion of the circumstances, the bias of relationships and the preference for the outcome of rules as applied.” J Loren Norris
“Regardless what you believe to be the truth about the “cause and solution” of global warming, or climate change, the truth remains. This has become one of the largest political hammers for power and control to generate money from thin air which has ever been produced. I am a free market capitalist, but all industries should prove to become viable, productive and profitable not politically power hungry, manipulative and tax burdensome.“ J Loren Norris
“Words matter. Sales pitches are slick and specifically designed to cause someone to buy in to an idea, product or service. Politicians are masters of the art of communication, rhetoric, and persuasion. Don’t let the way they sell you convince you that bad ideas are good.” J Loren Norris
“If we assume, rightly so, that curveballs don’t throw themselves, then we must ask who did it? As click society struggles with some of the greatest social curveballs of the last century, who was driving the intention behind the curveball? Who called this ‘trick play’? What is their larger agenda? What’s next?” J Loren Norris
“To claim America is perfect or flawless is just plain ignorance. To decide that an utter dismantling of the most prosperity creating, freedom creating, introspective nation of people in the history of the world is as ludicrous as throwing the baby out with the bath water or intentionally crashing your car when the check engine light comes on.” J Loren Norris
“Imitation may be the greatest form of flattery, but the mockery and the manipulation of an idea contrary to the intent of the originator is a social form of hijacking. Anyone who steals your brilliant idea and claims it as their own is a thief, that’s why we have patent laws. Anyone who adopts your idea and uses it for destructive or nefarious purposes is simply insidious.” J Loren Norris
“So long as we Americans have the right to vote, we also have the equal responsibility to vote! Regardless who you vote for, please choose to be an informed voter not a conformist voter. Forget hair color, skin color, sign color and party when you vote.” J Loren Norris
SEPT 11, 2001 A WATERSHED MOMENT IN OUR NATION AND IN MY LIFETIME. MUCH HAS CHANGED AND MUCH HAS NOT SINCE THEN.
“Awareness is key in all elements of life. Awareness is also a significant commodity in the trade of control. Silence of ideas, silence of opponents, silence of voices of dissent are all tools to control the narrative. This day marks a pivotal moment in our nation’s history and there are still many facts which have been hidden or suppressed. The is still much we do not know.” J Loren Norris
”High school and college are a great season of life to discuss, articulate and consider an individual’s worldview, but it is significantly too late to shape or create it. Worldview is tied to belief system and character which are originated between 2-7 years old based on experiences, relationships and environment. The stories you tell your toddlers will be the greatest shapers of their life long worldview.” J Loren Norris
HUBRIS ALONE ALLOWS ONE TO REVEAL THE PLAN NO ONE THOUGHT EVEN REASONABLY POSSIBLE AND DO IT ANYWAY.
“Constantly modifying behavior based on social acceptance is a good start, but moral character based on core values must go deeper than popular opinion and socially acceptable behavior. What level of arrogance is required to persist in doing what you know is wrong, damaging or destructive? Is it hubris alone, narcissism, or something more clandestine? Society as a whole is general guide to good or bad, right or wrong but “mob psychology” and society are not the same.” J Loren Norris
“So far as I know, no one who has fled a communist or socialist country has fled seeking a better communist country. None have left Venezuela seeking Denmark even. It seems they all seek the freedom, the opportunity, the harmony of the world’s freest, free market society. If ‘we the people’ surrender to socialism ideologies where will they go then?” J Loren Norris

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.
