Easy on the Eyes, Rough on the Ears

Have you ever met a woman

Who was easy on the eyes,

But ever so rough on the ears?

When she speaks she awakens fears

Births self-doubt and apprehension

Ready to harshly critique and berate you

Without forethought or a moment’s hesitation.

Such a woman is a plight and paradox indeed

She attracts a man’s eyes, but makes his heart bleed

Once allured, seduced, and ensnared it is hard to be freed

Therefore I warn you my brothers to listen and take heed

Lest you be by your eyes enticed, engulfed, and overcome

Hear a woman speak and behold her actions, before you run

Because being committed to a boisterous woman is not fun

It will nearly make you want to be die, or be deaf and dumb

Playing dumb is not sufficient to endure belligerence, nor shun

A continuously complaining, belittling, and destructive woman 

Therefore men beware before by your eyes and hormones you succumb

To the sophisticated seductress, lying lioness, and beguiling woman

Show restraint and behold her behavior over a long period of time

Thereafter you will know if she possesses nobility and does shine

Radiate with inner glory, the woman within, cultivated and captivated

If not, run hastily without explanation from her like decaying rot

Because when her looks fade, an annoying woman you have got.

Truly from the overflow of the heart come the words of the mouth

As for body parts gravity will pull them all eventually down south.

Character is contained in one’s actions, not mere promises and words

Watch out for loudly expressed wants, wishes, demands, and expectations

For these are the signs of inner motivations and brutally fatal relations

Which many men foolishly embrace and work tirelessly to futiley chase

Seeking to secure things to make their bottomless pit of a woman happy

After which they realize nothing and nobody can make a woman joyous

Because happiness is an inside job, a mystery to be discovered by all of us.

Remove yourself from the rat race early on brother and let her not smother

Be content until you find a quiet and quality woman …perhaps like your mother.

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.

Out of Sorts and Sync

Seemingly out of sorts and sync
Have you ever reluctantly been there?
Where you inwardly feel a bit square
Like you’re frantically going crazy
And angrily want to pull out your hair
When your confidence is rapidly fleeting
Your assurance dwindling and you don’t dare
To make a bold move, not knowing where
Nor what you should endeavor to do
When it seems life is passing by you
Ever so quickly, but you can’t grasp it
Nor comprehend how to live in the moment
Perplexed by life’s circumstances and situations
No time to have others questions your motivations
You’re just set to survival mode as you implode
Bordering a sudden propensity to also explode
As you inwardly are overwhelmed and erode
In financial debt your bills frighten your abode
The home in which you live seems unstable
As if any creditor were able to remove it from you
Scurrying seeking employment not knowing what to do
You pray earnestly to God asking for a breakthrough
To get you miraculously through what you’re going through
To wipe away the pain, pressure, and profuse inner turoil
To renew your heart and mind that life’s challenges spoil
To resurrect your dying vision, hope, and joy for the future
To open your eyes and direct your feet to opportunity’s door
For surely beyond your present experience to life there is more.

OCD – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Dr Oz and Jonathon Grayson

I watched Oprah last night with my wife and enjoyed seeing the interventions done by Dr. Oz and Jonathon Grayson for people struggling with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I think we all know someone who struggles with something like this or manifests these irrational behavioral tendencies.

The common thread I heard throughout every story and conversation with those struggling with OCD was fear. They were all battling fear of some sort and deep paranoia. They developed various phobias based around their erroneous beliefs, which Jonathon and Dr. Oz challenged by making them confront their fears.

Exposure and response as it is commonly referred to in psychology was the methodology used to treat these precious souls. Some of the things they made them do were a bit odd and gross to watch, like putting their hands on the floor and toilet seats (after which they were told to lick their hands).

Oz and Grayson took a 2 mile walk through the streets of Philadelphia to wear down the participants’ defenses and get them to open up. After the long walk they stopped in a back alley with some rubbish bins, one particularly which smelled like puke, old sour food, and feces. After some coaching and prodding, all participants put their hands in the slimy rubbish and licked them afterward, some putting their dirty hands through their hair.

All of this was to get the people to realize they weren’t going to die if they did what they most feared. I must say however seeing Dr. Oz putting his hands on a toilet seat and licking them afterward was terribly disgusting. My wife who watches Oprah every day was eating her dinner during the program. I couldn’t resist saying, “Oh baby, maybe you should get free from your OCD (control freak) by licking the toilet seat and drinking some toilet water.” (I know I’m bad. She finished her meal unabated.)

I was very impressed with the intervention, but probably would not have done the gross methods myself to achieve the same results. Dealing with the roots and origins of the phobia is crucial.

One African American mother confessed when a loved one died years ago she felt as if it was her fault. This erroneous belief opened the door to fear as she falsely interpreted the event. Thereafter she (and another white mother on the show with similar circumstances) began to shelter their children and freak out about every little thing as a perverse protective mechanism. What the women failed to realize was in actuality they weren’t protecting their kids as much as they were harming them by imparting a spirit of fear and thereby removing them from life itself.

At the beginning all participants were initially reminded of the pain, loss of loved ones, alienation of friends, career loss, and financial hardships caused by their phobias. This helped each commit to the coaching and unique methods used to provide them their breakthrough.

After the intervention the people all looked way better, more free, present, and regained the glow in their countenance. One gentleman who always kept one hand in his pocket to stay germ free, was outdoors with both hands out, talking about playing in the dirt and having fun. He regained himself and thereby his life.

Jonathon Grayson occasionally throughout the segment called and referred to the fear everyone was struggling with as a “monster” saying: “When you run from this monster it follows you.” He later also called it a “devil” and encouraged one woman as she sought to pray to God for power to overcome it.

I was blessed to hear the one clean freak mom (white with short curly hair – sorry I don’t remember her name) testify to her breakthrough of taking her children out for ice-cream after the intervention. Her daughter wore a white shirt and got ice-cream all over it, but mom didn’t obsess or freak out. Upon leaving the restaurant she left without worrying about tidying up, pushing in the chairs, or agonizing over anything. A personal breakthrough for her!

Dr. Oz at the conclusion of the show summed up some key principles to freedom. “Surrender, get free from those attachments.”

As we are fully present and awake to our own past dysfunction, we can boldly deal with it and get the breakthroughs we deserve to live freely and be whole.

Truly what we resist does persist. Face your fears and live free!

Coworkers Driving You Nuts – What Do Your Coworkers Do That Drive You Crazy?

My co-workers come into my office too often and break my focus, hindering my work productivity. Talking about non-work related matters, complaining about their latest irritation, and calling to ramble on about nothing of importance.

As a conflict resolution specialist and life coach, I suggest the following to deal with such annoyances.

1. Don’t answer the telephone when you are working.

2. Screen calls and attend to only those that are important.

3. Lock your office door.

4. Put in ear plugs while working at your cubicle to minimize distractions.

5. Politely ask your co-workers not to disturb you.

6. Ask your boss to relocate you to a more quiet place in the office so you can minimize distractions and be more productive.

7. Tell your colleagues at work your ears aren’t garbage cans, neither are you a dumping ground for all their complaints. Tell them to be proactive and solve their own problems.

Out Of Darkness – Dealing With Darkness And Breaking Through Darkness

Out of darkness, even gross darkness
Almighty God commands forth the light
Setting life in order, making all wrongs right
Giving groping, confused, and troubled men
Illumination, revelation, knowledge, and insight
While they endeavor to press on through life
When they find themselves fearfully financially tight
Going through earthly and an overwhelming plight
Of situations and circumstances, engulfing their soul
It is the Lord of hosts that mightily arises to cajole
Far more so considering God’s promises are true
Pure, noble, good, and able to take you through
The darkness presently, gruesomely swallowing you
When you wrestle with direction and what to do
When your aims and objectives delay in fruition
When you seek realignment and a new position
When you kick, bawl, squall and refuse to listen
When you need a higher and divine perspective
When you’re tormented within and are ineffective
The Lord of love and life provides the breakthrough
Just drop your pride and humbly draw near for grace
Like a tender child seek God above, pursue His face
Beyond just His hand, apprehend His thoughts and heart
Before you finish praying, making requests, and depart
Take time to listen to what His Spirit wants to say to you
The Spirit of truth will amazingly reveal and direct you
And suddenly the light will shine in darkness to show you
Though the darkness will fail to adequately comprehend it
Your spirit within will awake, be quickened, and grasp it
Meanwhile your mind may argue, reason, and maybe bicker
Yet yield to God’s Word and you will fulfill your destiny quicker
For God, who wonderfully said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”
Made His light shine in our hearts to give us the glorious light
Of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ
Embrace Jesus as your loving Savior and experience newness of life.
