Who does the President serve? Who does the Soldier serve? Who do all elected officials serve?
“The Oath of Office: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”
As Americans of the United States, we live under a form of government nearly 250 years strong. Not a democracy in the truest sense, not a totalitarian government, not an oligarchy or anarchy but we live in and serve a representative republic.
The soldier, the law enforcement officer, most elected officials take the very same if not extremely close to the same oath of office as the President of the United States. Notice the last line... That’s right, the Constitution. WHY?!?
Because in the wisdom of our Founding Fathers, MEN (and women) ARE CORRUPTIBLE. They can be “bought”. They can be persuaded, manipulated and mislead. They can be bribed, threatened and held hostage until their minds are changed. The constitution does not suffer the same fate. It is beyond threat - except by those who refuse to trust it and abide by its policies.
Great leaders require a common value system which supervises their own decisions. A value system and set of ideals which supersedes their own opinions. For a corporation those are bylaws and charters. For non profit organizations they will be similar. For religious institutions there are Holy Books and ancient texts.
When humans abandon ideals which have been tried and true, anarchy ensues. Anarchy is the worst form of democracy - mob rule, no one wins!
Leaders need to commit to values, principles and ideas and stick to them at all costs. The time tested ones have stood the test of time for a reason.

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.
