“Gender fluidity? Poly amorous? Right wing hate groups? Muslim Terrorist? Islamaphobia? These phrases did not exist one generation ago. But they have been etched in the minds of young people with specific meaning and attached significant emotion through repeated uses in the media. These words now carry a specific vibrational resonance. They are an energized frequency which impacts hearts and minds whenever they are spoken.” J Loren Norris
WORD CHOICE IS A POWERFUL PROGRAMMING TOOL FOR STORY TELLERS AND WORLD LEADERS.
From racial slurs to politically motivated character assassinations, some words have been given meaning for the sole purpose of manipulation.
I once had a man ask “What right do you have to criminalize an article of clothing?”
Alone, the question is an interesting choice of words. The idea on the other hand would conjure some odd imagery. Think fast. What clothing have you known to be outlawed or criminalized?
While your imagination is churning on things like the swastika, the hooded sheets of the kkk, the nearly nothing of some beach goers - does the hooded sweatshirt come to mind? How about the sleeveless undershirt unaffectionately known as a “wife beater”?
When society allows hitherto unknown meanings and interpretations to be applied to words as generations change, the meaning of history is rewritten as well. Another more blatant example is the use of words like “holocaust”, “concentration camp” and “death camp”.
All of these have a definitive historical meaning. The use of these terms for political persuasion is not only journalistic malpractice, intellectual dishonesty and potential hate speech it is the worst form of manipulation backed by a wicked intent to rewrite or reframe history.
Gender fluidity? Poly amorous? Right wing hate groups? Muslim Terrorist? Islamaphobia? These phrases did not exist one generation ago. But they have been etched in the minds of young people with specific meaning and attached significant emotion through repeated uses in the media.
These words now carry a specific vibrational resonance. They are an energized frequency which impacts hearts and minds whenever they are spoken.
#StoryPower Master Class specifically and intentionally teaches story crafting exercises which examine word choice from the perspective of responsibility as a communicator not merely the effect resulting in desired persuasion.

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.
