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 know is that all of us become just what you believe. So in case 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 think that you walk in the world, understanding that whatever issues 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 view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a part 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 call that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you at 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. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need 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 kid. The fact that hag was hit by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to understand this, that I am here matters 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 puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for every individual, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t know your goal, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to 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’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. 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 will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for a very long time that I am a blessed 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 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 every season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.
There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. The way you measure up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation because you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other man. So it’s like running a race, the energy it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Do not 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 man. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as possible.
What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will come back. 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 which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it is like this all the time. It is like this. It is 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 in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness of yourself, from the connection to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.
When you can 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 character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times 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 is just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But 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.
