In this world, there are a lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So in case you think that you can do all things because you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk into the world, understanding that whatever problems you may experience, 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 universe, to be a portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I call that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact 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 occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to understand this, that I am here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best individuals notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that due to my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every individual, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one 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 goal is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you do not pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t pay attention to that. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is the whisper. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a long time I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t have all this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, must step up our game. How you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my team all the time. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness yourself, from the link to source energy. That which created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you’re able to align with this, 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 soul, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
