Purpose and Ambition

Healthy purpose and heartfelt ambition

To improve your standing and position

To drive you beyond your threshold of pain

To challenge you to excel and not be the same

To awake you early in the morning to live fully

To sustain you late at night with supernatural energy

To enable you to push through the many distractions

To propel you past the seductions and fatal attractions

To direct the course of your life and remove deadly strife

To help you elegantly transcend the competitive tendency

To be happily be your best, be content, and live fearlessly

To gloriously arise and shine no matter the season or time

To magnificently blossom into your potential and climb

Higher day by day, believing, breathing, being, and becoming

Never succumbing to comfort zones, mediocrity, or timidity

Stretching yourself continually so you can grow dynamically

At the end of the day feeling satisfied, content, and well spent

Knowing that you’ve invested yourself wisely and lived authentically.

TV Guide and NY Times say Oprah Winfrey’s Empire is Crumbling

TV Guide’s Chloe Tse article dated 05-27-2008 reports tremors in Oprah’s media empire.

According to TV Guide Winfrey’s new-age spiritualism and political persuasion is jeopardizing her marketability in the media, thereby diminishing her status.

 

Perhaps Winfrey’s longtime reign over the media is coming to an abrupt end. For so long revered as nearly a saint because of her uplifting programming, Oprah is now beginning to receive criticism for her views. It has often been said that one should not talk about their religion and politics. Oprah is defying the odds and daring to do both.

 

I salute her for her authenticity and boldness to express her individuality. Yet doing so is simultaneously hurting her marketability. Nevertheless on the flip side of that argument, we do well to remember that controversy does sell. Who knows the queen of TV could remake herself into an activist for worthy causes and a voice against social injustice. Nobody can dispute Oprah has done and is doing a lot of good in the world. And with such influence why shouldn’t she let her voice be heard?

 

The New York Times says Oprah’s choices are gaining skepticism and audiences are tuning out. According to Nielson Media Research, for the third straight year in a row, Oprah is experiencing a decline in audience viewers.

 

Research shows Oprah’s program has dropped 7% of its viewers this year alone. Oprah’s other projects also seem to be suffering. For example her reality show Oprah’s Big Give debuted this winter with a huge audience and beat every program on television except for American Idol, but also experienced the loss of almost a third of its audience.

 

Winfrey’s readership of O her magazine, which you would think to have increased with the nonstop promotion of Tolle’s book, suffered a beating and loss of 10% over the last 3 years according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations.

 

Even Oprah’s favorite and highly promoted books in her book club are suffering harsh criticism. Apparently Oprah either didn’t adequately study the demographics of her viewers, or disregarded her viewers beliefs altogether. Women in the deep south who heavily watch Oprah’s program are typically Christian and many supporters of Senator Hillary Clinton.  Hence Oprah has cut her own throat by alienating Christendom with her new age books and shows, while simultaneously disenchanting white women when she endorsed Barak Obama for President.

 

As a Christian who read “A New Earth” and found it a in meaningful book, I understand both how Oprah feels and religious folks who don’t play around with their faith. Certainly not all Christians can eat the fish and spit out the bones when reading spiritual truths originating from another ideological orbit. Politically Americans aren’t very tolerant or understanding either, as evidenced by the great political divide in our country between Republicans and Democrats.

 

I commend Oprah for being true to what she believes in and bold enough to share what she thinks will empower people to live better lives. Her intentions and motives are certainly pure. If Oprah were solely money motivated, she would not continue to promote her spiritual and political views. Yet being already established financially, Oprah is embarking upon larger more meaningful missions to change the world. O Ambassadors is just one new endeavor Oprah is partnering with Free the Children to liberate and educate kids worldwide.

 

Hopefully Oprah who says she is a Christian will not find problems with parents concerned about their children getting sold new-age ideas. I think Oprah is doing a great work and deserves our support. Yet at the same time we who have beliefs of our own should not be any less vocal than Oprah.

 

Anything worth having in life requires a sacrifice. For Oprah it is a drop in viewer ratings, book sales, and magazine distribution. Nevertheless the rewards of the sacrifice should be sufficient to warrant the losses. Often we must first be willing to lose in order to win.

 

It cannot be disputed that ultimately we attract what we are. We cannot please everyone and succeed. We are at our best when we are true to ourselves and transparent about it. That Oprah is and that is why we love her.

 

Beyond touching hearts and putting tears in our eyes, Oprah also makes people think. Now raising eyebrows and making us scratch our heads, Oprah is finding herself as she further evolves. She recently said on her program that she admits to not having enough time to truly enjoy herself.  Perhaps as Oprah becomes more present and lets go of the ambition of sustaining her empire, critics will be silenced and her true spirit will emerge in purity untainted from the labels many have tried to presumptuously give her.

 

Dividing audiences is not always a bad thing as even the Word of God itself divides, while exposing our hearts (see Hebrews 4:12). Although Oprah’s television audience is predominately middle-aged white women who support Senator Hillary Clinton, most Americans are awaking to the reality that we need some color in the White House to truly get real and heal the homeland.

 

Angry criticism of new-age spiritualism and political disputes though a common message thread on the message boards from her website, Oprah will continue to transcend the accusations and come out on top as she honors the God of truth.  Love rejoices in the truth and we should do no less.

 

Next up for Oprah is OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. featuring programming that will reflect Winfrey’s vision of what she considers empowering programming.   

 

You can’t go wrong when you touch, teach, and transform your audience.

 

It’s not about being the queen of the media as much as it is about living a meaningful life of purpose to impact humanity.

Church Growth Consultant – Transition, Transcend, and Transform Your Church

Church growth is an interesting topic because there are two ways one can evaluate growth. Growth can be quantified by numbers in how many people attend the church services. Alternatively, growth can be measured by spiritual growth and godly character evident in a believer’s life. Thus church growth is measurable inwardly and outwardly.

The American Pastor usually wants growth to occur numerically in terms of how many people attend his church. Righteousness, holiness, and repentance are rarely preached in the pulpits of America. Such are essentials to facilitate spiritual growth and maturity.

The truth and irony to some however is that without inward spiritual growth, outward exponential growth in terms of people will not occur. This is based simply on the fact that people attract people. Everybody knows and influences somebody.

To what extent we influence others is determined by our own ability to passionately respond to God and humanity. Secondly, our grasp of truth and spiritual concepts paves the way for having meaningful spiritual dialogue. Thirdly, our own level of personal happiness and fulfillment will be either contagious attracting people to us or when we are sadly lacking serve to repel people away from us.

These are intangible things that cannot be taught, but that must be caught through relational and spiritual interaction. Unfortunately, the American church is far more cerebral than it is spiritual. We want to study everything to the nth degree and create a formula to follow. Sadly we are more creative in the drafting of our rigid methodological formulas than we are in our living expression among our peers who we desire to influence.

My travels to over 50 countries and 6 continents, working across denominational lines in an interdenominational capacity, have shown me that passion is paramount and crucial. Again something that cannot be taught, but that must be caught. Passion and love cannot be adequately explained, they must be experienced. The experience is unforgettable and very impressionable.

Thus it is the divine experience that precedes exponential growth. Such a divine experience can occur either directly with the Creator Himself, or indirectly with His people who are deeply connected to heaven. The drawing power of the Holy Spirit flows both ways and produces remarkably in and through whosoever will.

This is what the world needs – an experience with their Creator and with people who know Him intimately in divine relationship.

Relational Expert and Minister Celebrated by Playboy Radio – What Every Nympho Needs!

Relational Expert and Minister Paul F. Davis was embraced by Playboy Radio’s Afternoon Advice host Tiffany Grannath and several callers who enjoyed speaking to the author of Breakthrough for a Broken Heart and Adultery: 101 Reasons Not to Cheat. Davis answered questions from callers who had been cheated on themselves and were seeking wisdom as to what to do in their relationship.

 

Relational Expert and Love Coach Paul F. Davis was interviewed by Playboy Radio’s Tiffany Grannath about cheating, adultery, sexual sobriety, cultivating true love, and sustaining a love that lasts a lifetime.

 

Davis is the author of Are You Ready For True Love, which assesses relational compatibility & responsibility. “Discern between relational fits, misfits, and counterfeits. If a man tells a woman she’s beautiful, she will overlook most of his other lies. Courtship is that period during which the female decides whether or not she can do any better. Don’t get into the sea of matrimony on a wave of enthusiasm. Learn a lot before tying the knot. Beyond love at first sight, get insight.”

Courtship is that period during which the female decides whether or not she can do any better. Don’t get into the sea of matrimony on a wave of enthusiasm. Learn a lot before tying the knot. Beyond love at first sight, get insight.

 

Paul himself lived through an adulterous affair in which he went through a personal ground zero (like where he worked in NYC the first week of 9/11), after which he wrote his book Breakthrough for a Broken Heart to empower people to overcome their disappointments and blossom into their dreams.

 

Davis a worldwide professional speaker has traveled to over 50 countries and 6 continents across the globe comforting and uplifitng humanity. Paul’s message of hope transcends barriers that divide and builds bridges among all peoples. Paul’s organization Dream-Maker Ministries builds dreams, humorously challenges presumptions, transcends limitations, and facilitates transformation.

 

As a purpose coach Davis transforms individuals and organizations. Relationally speaking, the divorce Davis went through due to adultery, enabled him to pull from the mess a mighty message to liberate humanity. Paul’s book Adultery: 101 Reasons Not to Cheat he originally wrote for himself as a traveling man to keep the fear of God in his own heart and remind himself of the repercussions of wrong doing. Little did Paul know he’d be the victim of an adulterous affair himself when his ex-wife dropped the bomb on him.

 

Paul wrote a sequel to the Adultery 101 book titled Stop Lusting & Start Living, a sexual recovery plan which he says every nympho needs. Overcoming and harnessing fleshly bodily appetites that seek to rule and enslave us requires spiritual strength. Only as you build up the spirit within can you govern your bodily appetites and reign over unruly fleshly cravings screaming for immediate gratification.

 

Desperate housewives, strippers, playboys, womanizers, and the hormonally challenged driven by lust are restlessly looking for something and someone to satisfy them. Society is seeking answers to tame their gremlins and advice to achieve self-mastery. Will our consumeristic society ever again be content and committed relationally?

 

Faith, hope, and love alone anchor the heart and soul. Cheating thwarts the family structure and demoralizes precious children who look to Mommy and Daddy for moral guidance and direction. What then will divorced men and women give to their children? Hopelessness, depression, loneliness, lies, deceit, anger, fear, distrust, unfaithfulness, and betrayal? Are these values we want to teach our children? If not, somehow we must be strengthened to overcome seduction’s temptation.

 

How shall men keep the womanizer from stealing their wife? Stop betrayal and infidelity early on by harnessing your flesh before the hottie walks by. Get some self-help and purpose in your heart to uphold and fight for your marriage.

 

Though our bodies want food, sleep, and sex — giving yourself over fully without restraint to your bodily appetites will both destroy your soul and your marriage. The flesh doesn’t care about a wedding ring or marital vows. Therefore we must take dominion over ourselves and make our flesh obey.

 

Indeed sex is wonderful and a gift from God, but to be a blessing it must be kept within its proper context and not overly exalted. Sex is not love, neither can it satisfy a yearning soul. The flesh is but one of three facets of our person and has the least depth of the three. We are spiritual beings who have a mind and live in a body, says Paul. Therefore to overcome the outward man, we must first build up the inner man by the spirit.

 

The supernatural flow and miraculous dimension to Paul’s ministry and messages impart an unusual strength to hearts and minds, forfifying people to live victoriously spirit, mind, and body!

Reposition Yourself for Transformation and Excellence

Boldly and confidently reposition yourself

For glorious transformation and excellence

Transition through life without hesitance

Forget circumstances that come with defiance

Irritating and disgruntled coworkers in alliance

With those seeking to thwart your own success

Those who are merely grievous and jealous

Spread your wings and soar with the eagles

Leave the chickens and buzzards behind

Arise to your fullness, now is your time!

Spike Lee in Cannes Accuses Clint Eastwood of White Washing World War 2

*During a press conference in Cannes on Tuesday, filmmaker Spike Lee took director Clint Eastwood to task for failing to include a single African American soldier in his two recent WWII-themed films. Although hundreds of blacks fought in the battle for the Japanese island of Iwo Jima in 1945, none were present in Eastwood’s two movies about the historic struggle, “Flags Of Our Fathers” and “Letters From Iwo Jima.”

Perhaps getting some color in the White House will be good for America. Certainly having a black man in the White House will be good for the world who presently hate the United States according to Donad Trump who spoke candidly on the Big Idea about the failures of the Bush administration.
