WE LIKE TO HEAR FROM YOU


A very warm welcome to you here.

Lately, I am wondering how I can take my blog further. It struck my mind to revert to you for your honest answers.


As such, I believe that it is appropriate for me to request you to review my blog in these three areas namely its content, quality and frequency. I fully acknowledged and accepted the fact that content is the highlight of the blog. It’s the reason why you visit my blog and why you keep coming back. As such it’s important for me to have consistency in both the quality of my content and the frequency in which I have been posting all this while. In this connection, your honest feedback is solicited on whether some of tips I know and share is attractive enough.


First thing first, please put a rating from 1 to 10 for the following :-


• Did my content create value. Please give the rating 1( very poor) to 10 (excellent)


Perhaps you may just use another fancy way of asking whether my content is amazingly interesting. All of my posts,which have intention to give readers a worthwhile reason for reading. In short, are you getting something back and at the end of day, are you being lifted up as the name suggested. If not, how?

• Frequently posted.


I update my blog on a regular basis to give you reason to come back to my site. The plan is to update my blog at least once or twice a week, having in mind that quality is more important than quantity. This is because I believe that taking a couple of days off between posts can help me write a better post in the long run.


• My content is readable.


I am mindful that writing a blog is much different than writing a book or paper. This is because you, as online readers, have relatively shorter attention spans and more specific needs are preferred. Here, what I am trying to say is that I never pick colors fonts that will strain the visitor’s eyes. If I do, I like to apologise for it.


I also always ensure that my writing is easy to read. I prefer short paragraphs, using lists or bullet points, bolding or underlining important text when it is appropriate for me to do so. Do you agree?
Keeping enough white space in between lines and words is my style. Most of the times, I try to avoid typing up huge walls of text. At times, images and videos are included, where appropriate, to give readers something to look at. Here, I believe prosperity through diversity and always looking at new avenues to improve it further.


At last, but not least, I never felt discouraged when I work hard on a post even though no one pays attention to it. I am aware that growing a blog takes time. No one appreciate it now, does not mean that it will not be appreciated in the future. This is because once I grow, more people will look through my older posts and will see my hard work! Alternatively it will give me a chance to improve it further.






Stay tuned and I will work on my design and with my next post, I will discuss blog networking

EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF SERVANT LEADERSHIP - OPRAH WINFREY

Very happy day, Everyone.


The news recently that Hollywood's A-list celebrities bid a star-studded farewell to Oprah Winfrey in a double-taping of her talk show that included messages from her fans around the world is worthy of praise and commendation. Have you ever ponder that the lady, without holding any key position, yet command such a high respect from all walk of lives? If you do, then what is her success recipe?


Today, I like to say it was mainly attributable from her servant leadership style. Some of you may wonder why I say so. She has a deep true passion to serve people with unconditional love. She showed love without looking at colour because love is colourless, well recorded in most, if not all true religious teaching.


No surprise to me that she was recently voted as the world the Number 1 most influencial lady. I can feel the love at her show at Chicago's United Center on May 17, 2011 night, which she almost instantly thank them for it. For those who have attended such shows, please step forward to vouch for it. She thanks everyone for being a part of this celebration, which is still gaining momentum even it has been for 25 years. Amazing, right?


One important point to be noted at that function is that 13,000 of her fans, who attended that event gave the talk show host a standing ovation. A respect she truly deserved and earned.


The show was also followed by several meaningful and colourful programmes. Those who already know her well will not dispute that her graceful acts always inspire and touch every heart & soul. She rally can rock the world, she will fight for things she believes in, even if it makes her less popular. Thus, she makes herself distinctly different from other leaders. She had truly build a long lasting legacy which will flourish from time to time.


You can imagine how wonderful and colourful the atmosphere on that night, surrounded by so many great songs such as Mission Impossible, For God, Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Isn't She Lovely, to portray well the lady who uses her gifts to uplift so many hearts, through all of the sacrifices she has made, humility she has and through God's amazing grace.


This well illustrate the point that this long proven and established success recipe is not obsolete, but still relevant in the 21st century and in the future which I strongly believe so.


This truly inspired me and I hope you too are inspired by her. Let us together urge all world leaders to prescribe to her recipe of success, Servant Leadership, to make a world a very much better place to stay. So, let us put her excellent leadership on record for us to adopt and apply. Let us work together to make it a reality. This is nothing impossible if we work together towards it.


Thank you for your precious time and look forward to hearing your feedback.

ROAD TO BEAUTIFUL

ROAD TO BEAUTIFUL ; A JOURNEY OF HOPE DETAILING HIS JOURNEY OF BATTLING THE DISEASE



A very warm welcome to you here.

It is of great pleasure for me to share this book, ROAD TO BEAUTIFUL : A JOURNEY OF HOPE DETAILING HIS JOURNEY OF BATTLING THE DISEASE, if somehow you have missed the news.


This book chronicles a man, none other than Gerard Khaw's battle with cancer. He, a Penangite, survived the ordeal and journalised his journey into this book. He still survives till today despite he was told by doctors five years ago that he only had 10% chance of surviving nose cancer. Subsequently, doctors removed 60% of his liver that had tumours, after the cancer cells spread to his liver there years later.

It was amazingly awesome for him to pursue an off-campus Masters in Business Administration programme from the University of South Australia in 2009 and completed it in March this year while going through cancer treatment. Here, I am very certain that you too like to find out his secret of success.


The author, in his 40s, confessed that he managed to act against all the odds through the grace of God. He too admitted that he received full support from his wife Gloria, his two children Isabelle, 10, Jeanelle, 9, and friends during the launch of his book at Canton Square on last Sunday.


In this connection, I also like to reattest my testimony to glorify God that His grace is sufficient for us to overcome any and every barrier we encountered in our lives so long as we have faith and not to lose hope, as reaffirmed by the above author. This undeniable truth is not anything new and it has been affirmed by the past, current and future witnesses and is well reaffirmed in the Scriptures.


Another good news is that the above book priced at RM 30 will soon be made available in major bookstores nationwide. As such, it is a very well rewarding book to read, very much more than its cost.


For those who have read this book, you are more than welcome to voice out your feedback so as to inspire others as well. Great thanks to you. Please do not stop here, but do spread this good news to your circle of friends so as to inspire others as well to show your care and love.


Have a blessed day everyday,

James Oh

THE QUESTION ARISES FROM THE MOVIES OF THE LOST OF BLADESMAN

THE QUESTION ARISES FROM THE MOVIES OF THE LOST OF BLADESMAN


This morning, I received a revelation from the movie entitled "The Lost of Bladesman" which I watched yesterday after my bible discussion with a group of friends. Kuan Kew is my childhood's hero. I must admit that this man of principle has a great impact on my life despite the fact that I know some people who regarded him as a fool to have died for his guided principle. After I accepted Christ as my Savior, I realized lots of similarity to the warriors of Jesus as recorded in the scripture. All the warriors conquered the fear of death to serve the Mighty God they loved and served.


In this movie, two main contrasting characters, one of Kuan Yew and the other of Cao Cao can be seen. It is still relevant and applicable in today's modern technological era. This story recorded two different approaches taken by both of them to bring peace to the world.


CAO CAO
was a smart manipulator and used all his talents for wrong cause to achieve a "huge success" based on worldly standards. He manipulated every one for his advancement and became a powerful Prime Minister, under a weak emperor of his country. He was the only one, who is permitted to carry a sword in the palace. He was exempted from kneeling and bowing (as a respect to their Majesties in the past) his head to the emperor. However he expected the rest of the officials to abide to the rule of law, but he was above the rule - that annoyed Kuan Kew. All the officials, at that time, feared him, except Kuan Yew, due to his cruelty to do anything to those who disobeys him. But the truth is that he had never gained respect from the Chinese community. His legacy collapsed almost immediately upon his death. You can see this truth still happened in today's modern world. This reaffirmation of the fact that history repeats itself.


It is vividly demonstrated that compelling people to do things out of fear, will never last. This have been well recorded in the history books and reaffirmed in the Scriptures as well. Yet even the smartest Alex will always make the same mistake, from the past to the present and even to the future.


KUAN YEW


on the other hand was a real brave warrior, who fought for brotherhood; loyalty and steadfastness for principles, justice and righteousness. No surprise, that he was well regarded in the Chinese community as a great hero even though he had died in a horrible condition. He was beheaded. However, subsequent to his death, the Chinese community raised him as a saint, who had conquered death and was set free to fight for justice and righteousness. His actions well demonstrated his good cause - "in the name of peace and harmony for his nation" without any hidden agenda.


This movie recorded the hassles he has to go through to exit from Cao Cao's nation and join Liu Pei, a weaker nation which intended to prevent Cao Cao from advancement. He had great foresight and vision that enabled him to see the Cao Cao's nation lack of love. What prove him right is that the mighty nation under Cao Cao did not last long.


His bold action to follow his conscience in serving Liu Pei, rather than Cao Cao, led me to leave behind an excellent legacy that last for more than two thousand years. Till to-date, he is still well respected hero from the people who live two thousand years after him. I believe that such an honour will last over time. This is simply because righteousness always prevails over time. The price he paid for such a honour is a great one too - he died in horrified manner (beheaded); yet people subsequently raised his status as Saint, who chose to fight against the evil force.


Here, I like to draw the analogy between him and Aspotle Paul. Both of them chose to forgo their promising and rewarding career as high ranking officials but press on to pursue for justice and righteousness so to speak - A real and true warrior. Kuan Yew initially served the Prime Minister, Cao Cao. Similarly the Aspotle Paul who was trained by and served the Phraisee before Jesus touched and transformed him and made him overcome his false belief.


When both of them realized their un-reconciled differences with their initial beliefs, they made a U turn, which made them seem like rebellions, a very thin distinction between a hero and a rebel. You can see vividly how irrational for them to do so by foregoing such a promising and rewarding career as high ranking officials at their initial camps. In this connection, please put forward your thought should you come to different conclusion as I did. Thank you in advance for your kind thoughts.


However, there is a difference between both of them. The former seems to have no choice, but continuously fight so as to defend advancement from Cao Cao despite his acknowledgement of the truth that a war will never end the war. Whereas, the latter chose to use Word, against swords or bullets, to bring righteousness to MIGHTY GOD


This movie was selected from a chapter of the THREE KINGDOM


Conclusion


We can select two different definitions of success from the above story. The worldly success of Cao Cao who used unjustifiable means to achieve temporary nature of success while Kuan Yew's success


is of a permanent nature, but may seem as a failure based on worldly standards. However, the latter’s good legacy will prevail and last but not the former.


Trust the above story give us a clear picture of choice we need to opt for.


To your success,


The truth will prevail; no matter how you conceal it.
