“When young leaders with the same hubris based courage do not heed the admonishment of their advisors HEARTBREAK ABOUNDS! Along with lost opportunity, lost money, lost time and possibly lost freedom. Not every great risk is followed by great reward!” J Loren Norris
BABIES AND LEADERS SHARE THE SAME FEAR!! AT SOME POINT THEY MIGHT SHARE A GREATER DANGER THAN WHAT THEY FEAR!
Babies have a fear of falling. It’s why they gasp for breath when a parent is Holding them and moves too suddenly. The fear of falling they say is the only natural born fear in human beings.
Leaders also have a healthy fear of falling. They fear losing their status, their influence, their position, career or title. It makes sense. No one wants to work so hard for so long and see it all slip away.
HOWEVER - The one danger babies and leaders both must face is the hubris which masks the fear of falling! When a toddler loses that sense of fear they take unlikely risks. When they carry that fearlessness forward into adolescence or young adulthood they do crazy things like street racing, challenging peers to life threatening tasks and they truly believe “IT WON’T HAPPEN TO ME!”
When leaders approach their leadership role with the same level of hubris possessed by teen boys or young men, the same danger arises. They become convinced “IT CAN’T HAPPEN TO ME!”
Toddlers in discovery mode and leaders who are proving themselves both need someone close at hand who is objective enough to see the risks clearly, recognize the potential threats and potential harm which could be done and have to trusted position to SPEAK UP!
When young adventurous children do not heed the admonishment of their parents SCARS ABOUND!
When young leaders with the same hubris based courage do not heed the admonishment of their advisors HEARTBREAK ABOUNDS! Along with lost opportunity, lost money, lost time and possibly lost freedom.
Listen closely to those who are your mentors.

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.
