Michael Phelps Success Secrets – Olympic Gold Medalist and World Record Holder

Michael Phelps is getting gold medals and breaking world records. One of swimming’s most decorated athletes and world record holder 20 times over. What are Michael Phelps’ success secrets we can learn from this outstanding athlete and over achiever?

1. Know your territory, prepare, and adapt as necessary.

Phelps says, “Within an international meet travel plenty time ahead to adjust to time zone or food or whatever it is.”

2. Focus on what you do best and tune out the media and mouths.

Phelps wisely remarks after the Olympics in Athens, “Media is a big part. If there’s a head line like in Athens, ‘Winning 7 gold medals.’ That was all over the place. I really just wanted to win one. That was the dead honest truth.”

“When I hear things said in the media,” Michael Phelps says, “I try not to pay attention to them. Everyone talks and they’re there to get attention from people.”

3. Conserve your emotional energy and direct it toward what you do best.

Michael Phelps told Bob Costas after winning 8 gold medals in Beijing, China, that he doesn’t get involved in verbal wars, nor does Michael try to verbally answer his critics. Phelps just does it in the water and lets his performance speak for itself.

4. Humility and staying true to yourself.

After winning several gold medals in Athens, Michael returned to the University of Michigan where he lived and trained preparing for Beijing. Michael says, “Life for me, I think it’s simple. …I express what I’m thinking and don’t hold anything or nothing back.”

When asked to compare the Michael Phelps who competed in Beijing to the 19 year old headed to Athens, Phelps acknowledges he in his younger years of competition was a bit clueless to the totality of what he was in for as an Olympic swimmer. “That was a deer in headlights. I had no idea what I was doing.”

When asked before the Beijing games how he would end an article of himself after the conclusion of the swimming competition, Michael humbly replied: “I have nothing to say. It’s the Olympic games and I’m out there representing my country. If I’m the best prepared as I can be, then I’m going to be happy and that’s all that matters.”

5. Stay calm and composed under pressure.

Considering all the enormous expectations fans and those in swimming put on the extraordinary Michael Phelps, he stays cool. En route to Beijing, before which Phelps had taken the world stage numerous times, Michael knew there would be 18 races in 9 days, more events for him than any other swimmer.

Nevertheless Phelps said going into Beijing, “I am more relaxed now, more calm. I know what to handle. I know what to expect.”

6. Dedication, preparation, and intense training.

Phelps is in a league of his own. Having now passed the awkward teen years, Phelps is pushing the limits as the fastest swimmer in his sport. When the alarm clock sounds at 7:30am Phelps hits the pool consistently with the same amount of desire and drive never holding back. Michael swims 4 hours a day including on Sundays, holidays, his birthday, and Christmas.

7. Goal setting and a commitment to be your personal best.

His coach Bob Bowman has given Michael the tools he needs to stay motivated for a lifetime. The two together write down their goals, which consist of faster times for Michael. Phelps sets high goals and maintains high hopes for himself, refusing to plateau or become content to merely compare himself with other swimmers among his competition.

The challenge to reach the top of swimming greats, Olympic medal holders, and world record breakers is extremely demanding. The dedication required to stay at one’s best while being continually bombarded and distracted by the media will require even more focus in the years to come.

One thing is for sure however. Michael Phelps is the first athlete in sport to win 8 gold medals in one Olympics and for that his legacy will forever remain. Phelps undoubtedly is a class act in and out of the water, while undoubtedly inspiring athletes of every sport throughout the world.

Cleanse Your House of the Curse of Complaining

This day in prayer and meditation in God’s Word I have located the thief that has been stealing my blessing (our blessing).
 
A foul spirit of complaining, the majority of which occurs through our mouths!
 
Know assuredly they who murmur against the Lord shall be swiftly punished and demoted from their heavenly calling, being brought down to menial labor and servitude (see Joshua 9:18-21).
 
The curse of hard labor came upon the murmurers because they refused to believe and continually complained (Joshua 9:22-23).
 
If you want to murmur and complain against your spouse and the Lord, I assure you your life will only get worse because God does not bless complainers. In fact God makes complainers lives more hard and difficult, doing unto them according to their words (Numbers 14:28).
 
So that being said, I urge you to leave your complaints.  I don’t want them in my house, my heart, nor do I want them to fill my ears.  I’m going forward into the promised land.  Enter into such joy of the Lord with me, but your heart must change .
 
The choice is yours!
 
Choose this day whom you will serve – God, yourself, or the devil.
 
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19).
 
If you choose to be blessed, no complaining will be tolerated. So if you want to keep your bitterness and complaining, stay with the devil and don’t profess to be a Christian.
 
If you want to cleanse your heart, be holy, and be happy – you shall be free to live the abundant life in Christ and be fully received and celebrated by God.
 
However there shall be no more complaining. From this day forward men must put their foot down. Husbands tell your wivews, if you are going to live in my house, dwell under my roof, eat my food, use my AC, drive my car, use my gas……no more complaining, no more bad attitude, no more stinking thinking, no more whining, no more cursing me with a foul tongue. No more! No more! No more!
 
Fall on your knees and get your heart right before God or don’t come home. 
 
Tell your wife and kids you love them, but in loving them you have an obligation to speak the truth to them and demand the best of them (yourself too).
 
Your best friends bring out the best in you!  Hence I am your best friend.  I don’t flatter you, I apply pressure to bring out the best in you.  If you want to stay low and be miserable the rest of your life, stay there and find some miserable comforters.  Misery loves company.
 
If however you want to be a true man or woman with honor and integrity, cleanse your heart and come home. Fall on your knees and call upon the Lord to fix, renew, and give you newness of life.
 
You are loved unconditionally, but you are being challenged to grow into manhood and womanhood.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). 
 
“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report; if there by any virtue, any praise, think on these things…..and the God of peace shall be with you.” (Philippians 4:4-9)
 
God is challenging you to be empowered, be equipped, be renewed, and be your best.
 
Only as you humble yourself and rid your heart of arrogance will you be blessed.
 
All my love accompanied with truth to set the captives free!
If there is one wish I have for you, it is that you find peace.  The remedy and prescription is stated above.

Church Growth Consultant For Pastors and Congregations – 15 Reasons Why People Leave Your Church

It often baffles Pastors and church staff why people leave “their” church. Some folks visit and never return. Others who were a vital part of the church community suddenly disappear through the proverbial backdoor.

How can Pastors and church staff grow themselves to prevent loss of life in the church?
This is not only a compelling question, but also the very hinge that holds every congregation together. Life begins within. If the foundation is not strong and properly laid, it cannot sustain outward and ongoing growth.

Jesus said we spiritually know people like trees by their fruit or the lack thereof (see Matthew 7:16-20).

Here are some reasons people leave a church:

1. Lack of warmth, hospitality, and affirmation.

When you first walk into a church, what do you feel? What do you see? What do you hear? If there are no smiling greeters with a sweet spirit to welcome you, it is easy to wonder if you are even welcomed. People like to go where they are celebrated not merely tolerated.

Does your church make people feel like they are burdening or blessing you when they arrive? Do people feel safe or judged in your presence? Do you love people unconditionally, or do you have some ulterior motive driving you?

Die to your agenda and embrace the great commandment to love people.

People are wounded, hurt, and disillusioned. They need to be comforted and consoled. People need a loving touch, kind word, and a hug. A good word makes the heart glad (Proverbs 12:25 b).

Love, embrace, and affirm people in your midst. Many people attend church because they are hurting, feel lonely, and need to be encouraged. Don’t miss the divine appointment and send people away feeling worse than when they came to you.

2. Lack of joy and spiritual atmosphere.

The best way to create a healthy spiritual atmosphere is through praise and worship. Worship is a time when God becomes the focus and we die to ourselves. Only as people focus on the Lord do they quiet their souls and concerns. We all have innumerable cares and challenges, but as we uplift our Creator in worship the Presence of the Holy Spirit can attend to matters of the heart and sweep away all despair within.

Apart from the divine Presence of God’s Holy Spirit, church is nothing more than a religious social club void of God altogether. The Holy Spirit inhabits the praises of God’s people (Psalm 22:3). Therefore enter God’s glorious Presence with singing and gladness of heart (Psalm 100:2).

Fullness of joy is found in the Presence of the Lord (Psalm 16:11) as we open our hearts to the Lord and express our love for God. Joy is captivating and contagious! Truly the joy of the Lord is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10), without which congregations die and diminish in number.

Remember God seeks those who worship Him (John 4:23). God prospers those who serve Him (Psalm 35:27). Grudgingly serving God however is burdensome. Only as we receive God’s love and embrace His heart for us, can we be inspired to worship the Lord our Maker. As God’s love and life is adequately expressed and exalted during worship, we are touched and transformed in the Presence of the Lord (see 1 Samuel 10:9; Ezekiel 36:26-27).

3. Lack of an enriching word from God to build their lives.

The Word of God’s grace builds people up, carrying them into the arms of a loving heavenly Father and empowering them to enter their personal promised land (see Acts 20:32). Churches that become overly encumbered with announcements, exhortations to give, and shouting from the pulpit often lack the nourishing Word of God.

Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). Feed the sheep Jesus has entrusted to you with the milk and meat of the Word of God (see John 21:17; 1 Peter 2:2).

4. Lack of a family environment and sense of community.

Families with children want to feel secure and know that their children will be cared for. An excellent and clean nursery with professional staff is vital to instill confidence within people that you genuinely care for their family. Ministries for youth of all ages and adults with various interests all create affinity and a sense of community.

As fellow citizens in the kingdom of God we must endeavor to rejoice in the commonwealth and embrace the household of faith (see Ephesians 3:15). As we do we shall unite and rejoice together as a precious family in God that is one in Spirit.

5. Lack of meaningful ministry opportunities.

As people grow and mature spiritually they want to be able to use their gifts, talents, and abilities to serve. Amazingly, people grow more in six months when doing ministry than in six years of receiving ministry. Otherwise boredom sets in and quarreling will begin among the ranks. The church of the living God is both a family and an army. When the army serves purposefully, they are too focused and tired to fight one another. When the army sits and does nothing, they get frustrated and angrily speak against its leaders without a clearly communicated vision.

Jesus came not to receive ministry, but to minister to others (Matthew 20:28). It is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35).

6. Lack of vision, focus, and purpose for the congregation and its members.

Church leaders must grow in God’s grace and ability to communicate “heavenly vision” and divine direction (see Acts 26:19). We must “purpose in the spirit” as God directs us through prayer (see Acts 19:21).

Jesus came to “seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10). Jesus told His disciples to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:20). We therefore must touch people locally, while also reaching to impact nations globally (see Acts 1:8). As we do so our communities will be impacted and our church members will grow as we “go into all the world to preach the good news” of Jesus (Mark 16:15).

7. Excessive competition, pride, and backbiting among church members.

When a worldwide vision is not imparted to God’s people, they become focused on and bicker about trivial things of no eternal consequence. Murmuring and complaining cut off the life flow of God’s Spirit and quench the warmth within a congregation. Pastors and leaders should be peacemakers and make haste to put out small fires before they spread and do great damage (Matthew 5:9; Hebrews 12:15; Ecclesiastes 9:18).

People have enough drama in their professional and family life. They go to church to get away from drama, not encounter and be overwhelmed with more of it.

Jesus is the Prince of Peace and God’s kids are peacemakers (see Isaiah 9:6-7; Matthew 5:9). God is love (1 John 4:16), which is first shown through patience (1Corinthians 13). If we say we are born of God, than let us be patient with others as they mature and grow in divine grace.

8. Lack of fathering and mentoring from the Pastor and church staff.

Churches across the country are full of teachers, orators, and preachers. Few however make themselves accessible to the people to touch them at a deep level. The apostle Paul acknowledged this tendency among ministers himself (see 1 Corinthians 4:15). Jesus showed His disciples the Father heart of God (see John 14:8-9). If we want to truly nourish and see people grow, we must give of ourselves to people (see 1 Thessalonians 2:8). Otherwise we are nothing more than a hired hand that cannot be trusted (see John 10:13)

9. Unorganized church life

People need clarity and things to be done orderly so they can follow along as participants (see 1Corinthians 14:40). The best airports are those that are well organized and clearly laid out. Otherwise being unable to discern directions, facilities, and resources one can become frustrated and discouraged. This is how many church members feel.

10. Insufficient fun activities to be social and make friends.

People like to have fun and be entertained. Jesus came to give us abundant life not merely church (see John 10:10). God is a Creator. Be creative and make things fun for people. Otherwise they will go somewhere else. Remember God is both happy and holy. Embrace and exemplify both in your life.

11. No sense of adventure and personal challenge to grow.

Jesus had His disciples leave the comfort zone and “launch out’ into the unknown (see Luke 5:4). Only as we are stretched do we grow. Physical strength comes through resistance training at the gym. Life and ministerial challenges should be encouraged, as they will bring about unprecedented growth in people.

Be like Jesus. Refuse to let your church members stagnate and stink. Keep them moving and give them opportunity to use their giftings.

12. Overwhelming amount of pressure to give resources, time, and talents.

The media and corporate world have made merchandise of people. Consumerism and comparison saturates nearly every level of society, as we are made to compare ourselves with others. Feeling and flipping between being haves and have-nots dwarfs our true identity, while thwarting and hindering our divine purpose.

The Church of Jesus Christ is the one place where humanity ought to be able to sit down and rest without feeling as if they are being made merchandise of (see Psalm 23:1-2; Ezekiel 34:1-4). To fleece and rape God’s sheep for personal financial gain, ministerial fame, and simply to fulfill your dream is insensitive and a misuse of the divine vocation to which we have been called.

Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit when taking offerings, presenting needs, and recruiting volunteers. Don’t twist arms and apply undo pressure by making people feel guilty. Let the Lord speak to His people, which if He does not perhaps you either need to work a bit harder to fill in the gaps or maybe lay down a personal agenda God may not be blessing.

13. Lack of genuine interest from the Pastor and staff in the personal life of its members.

Jesus took a genuine interest in people. He spoke in parables to properly relate and enter their world. Too often we are irrelevant and clueless pertaining to the lives of our people. Jesus asked questions to gauge where people were in their lives.

Jesus asked, “What do you want me to do for you?” (Matthew 20:32)

14. Ego and individualistic mentality among the Pastor and church ministers hinders the life flow.

This mentality breeds spiritual poverty and animosity within church members. As pride, comparison, competition, and ego become king sincerity and transparency leave. Thereafter walls are erected relationally throughout the congregation as people endeavor to protect and project their image, after which genuine life flow ceases to exist.

15. Lack of humility and service in the hearts of Pastors and leadership.

Jesus said the chief leader should become the servant of all (see Matthew 20:25-26). Lack of heartfelt service flowing from leadership breeds distrust and causes a disconnection among the people. Arrogance always eventually alienates people.

“By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, honor, and life” (Proverbs 22:4).

Manifest these in your life and church leadership and all will be well within your congregation. People emulate what they see in their leaders. There shall be like people, like priest (see Hosea 4:9).

Overcoming Adversity Speaker to Revolutionize Your World – a Keynote to Empower You!

Paul F. Davis understands what it is to struggle and overcome adversity. Paul therefore can deeply touch and mightily transform humanity.

Paul’s selfless accomplishments and worldwide service in some of the most devastated regions on earth makes him an unforgettable speaker able to captivate any audience. 

 

Paul F. Davis was born with pneumonia, after which he lived in an oxygen tent until he gained the strength to endure the outside elements. Paul cried so much during his infancy, he gave himself a hernia which required surgery to repair.
Once in the earth instead of ceasing, Paul’s struggles only intensified. His mother divorced his dad and became an alcoholic and drug addict. Growing up, Paul says, “My mom was either in one of three places: the bar getting drunk, in jail behind bars, or in a mental ward receiving rehabilitation.”

In the absence of his mother and father, Paul grew up with his maternal grandparents. Though Paul’s grandparents adored and cared wonderfully for him, they simultaneously battled to help Paul’s mother recover from substance abuse and mental illness caused by it. This was very embarrassing and difficult for Paul to endure as a youth growing up.

When Paul’s father remarried and gained custody of him, Paul had a hard time getting along with his step-mother who refused to pamper and spoil him as did his grandparents. Once Paul’s parents relocated him from Orlando to live in the country, at the age of 12 years Paul battled childhood depression and for a short while even contemplated suicide he so hated his life.

Nevertheless Paul determined to cultivate inner happiness, overcome his circumstances, and make something of his life. Paul became the most-improved student in 6th grade, excelled at baseball making the all-stars and leading his team to 1st place, winning the most games of any pitcher in the league.

Paul also reconciled with his step-mother who today he affectionately calls “Mom” and has a special relationship with. As for his grandparents, Paul during his adult life cared for them for 2 years before they passed as Paul didn’t want to put them in a nursing home after they were so good to him growing up.

Though Paul after 5 years of marriage suffered a horrible divorce due to his ex-wife’s infidelity and adulterous affair, he forgave her and happily moved on with his life. During his personal ground zero, Paul wrote Breakthrough For a Broken Heart empowering people just like him to overcome their disappointments and blossom into their dreams!

Today Paul is again happily married to the love of his life Karla, a gorgeous Canadian who is all he ever dreamed of in a wife. The two are traveling throughout the globe revolutionizing their world, making an amazing difference in the lives of people everywhere they go!

Make no mistake about it. When you need an “Overcoming Adversity” Keynote Speaker, Paul F. Davis is undoubtedly your go to guy to captivate and empower any audience.

Paul is an unforgettable person and purpose coach able to transform any individual and organization.
