In this world, there are a whole lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything as you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk into the world, knowing that whatever problems you may encounter, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding of what God means grew with me, I expanded my view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there’s something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.
I predict that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact that that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways that I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for each person, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you do not focus on the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.
You don’t pay attention to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very long time that I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t have all of this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.
There have been more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. The way you step up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Do not waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as you can. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.
What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will come back. It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness yourself, from the connection to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.
When you’re able to align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, just how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
