“While the world of business activity is dormant due to this global pandemic, don’t allow the weeds to take over. Business will resume. Work will be available. Relationships will be reignited. However, JUST LIKE THE DORMANT LAWN they will all be suffering from an infestation of weeds!” J Loren Norris
WEEDS GROW STRONGER WHILE THE GRASS IS DORMANT. HOW DO YOU APPLY THIS METAPHOR TO THE PANDEMIC?
Every fall the beautifully manicured lawns of St Augustine grass begin the process of “shutting down for winter.” The grass goes dormant, turns brown, stalls its growth and spreading process in wait for the spring. Meanwhile, all the weeds in the universe seem to migrate to the well watered, healthy soil of the lawn.
Surely, weeds can and will grow anywhere!! They grow in the cracks in the sidewalk, the arid desserts, the middle of the road given half a chance. As you apply this truth to the metaphorical areas of your life, ask yourself questions like this:
While the world of business activity is dormant due to this global pandemic, don’t allow the weeds to take over. Business will resume. Work will be available. Relationships will be reignited. However, JUST LIKE THE DORMANT LAWN they will all be suffering from an infestation of weeds!

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.
