“I CONSIDER IT EQUALLY VILE TO A RACIAL SLUR. DEROGATORY REMARKS ABOUT SEXUAL ORIENTATION OR RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION. If the best counter you have to a thought I share is to ridicule and call names, then your limited inability to converse honestly and intelligently exposes itself.” J Loren Norris
SOME PEOPLE HAVE USED THIS 2 WORD PHRASE AS INSULT AGAINST ME. I CONSIDER IT EQUALLY VILE TO A RACIAL SLUR. DEROGATORY REMARKS ABOUT SEXUAL ORIENTATION OR RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION.
If the best counter you have to a thought I share is to ridicule and call names, then your limited inability to converse honestly and intelligently exposes itself. I am not questioning the intellect of the people who disagree with me. I am not trying to insult people who think differently than I do. But I am vehemently opposed to the notion that disagreement is a mental disorder. It is not!
Disagreement is often the birthplace of innovation, collaborative learning and discovery. Forced agreement, forced compliance is often the birthplace of abuse, tyrannical control, and prolonged manipulation. Consensus and scientific fact are not interchangeable. Mass adoption of an idea does not make it a good idea. (DDT? CFC? Halon? Monsanto?)
A healthy debate will lead to deeper understanding. An open mind, supported by core values and sufficient research will lead to qualified new ideas, opinions and opportunities. A society that pathologizes dissent is a society on its way to a complete loss of freedom. Know this, any group of people who fight to gain total control, gain any ground in that direction, they will fight equally hard to maintain what control they already have. A freedom lost is twice as hard to get back as it would have been to protect it to begin with. Ask the people of Hong Kong circa 1997-2020.

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.
