In this world, there are a whole lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do all things because 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 comprehension of what God means grew with me, I expanded my perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there is something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.
I call that God, but I do nothing without that, knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth 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 particular 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 party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to know this, that I am here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you’re 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, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for each individual, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just 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’s like getting bumped upside the head.
You do not listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. I am interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for a very long time I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would 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 structures.
There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. How you step up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. 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 at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as possible.
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 is my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to return. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.
It’s 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 plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness of yourself, from your connection to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.
When you can 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 character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, 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 influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were supposed to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
