“If you “grew up” in an era when racism was common, when bigotry dominated Main Street, when sexism was “how business was done” then the stories you heard about negotiating a deal, closing a sale, getting the big win, WERE ALL TAINTED, skewed and corrupt!!!” J Loren Norris
#STORYPOWER IS HOW CHILDHOOD STORIES SHAPE OR SABOTAGE TODAY’S SUCCESS
Most people have a slightly different view of their “growing up life” than their parents or even their siblings have of the same time period. This is because we all want to believe the very best about ourselves. We will naturally preserve “self” in the most threatening circumstances, even if that’s in the story of a memorable event.
The next level of #storypower truth is this: we carry OUR VIEW of that story forward into life. It becomes a BELIEF SYSTEM around which we make decisions. We decide if someone else is good or bad. We decide if an idea, a culture, a class or race of people, a social structure, an economic policy is GOOD OR BAD based on our own perceptions. These perceptions are often shaped by learning, by lecture, by leaders or by personal experiences. These personal experiences are FILTERED through our beliefs, which started with our CHILDHOOD STORIES. Are you with me so far?
TAINTED CORRUPTED STORIES:
If you “grew up” in an era when racism was common, when bigotry dominated Main Street, when sexism was “how business was done” then the stories you heard about negotiating a deal, closing a sale, getting the big win, WERE ALL TAINTED, skewed and corrupt!!!
If you “grew up” in a time, place and environment where you were never right, never trusted, never accepted because of your sex, sexual orientation or skin color, your own internal stories are likely corrupt as well. You have been lied to so long you will start to believe the lies, internalize the lies, repeat the lies, tell stories about your childhood which reinforce the lies. IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL, you will live today as if those lies are true.
CHOICE TO CHANGE:
Childhood stories will either SHAPE or SABOTAGE your success! It is time to apply #storypower to those childhood memories and REWRITE each incident to realign the past with the truth, until they reconcile and resonate with your ideal future!

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.
