In this world, there are a lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So if you believe 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, understanding that whatever issues 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 world, 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, knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to comprehend 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 hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all 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 well. Folks notice when you do your best individuals 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 celestial order, man, I do not believe in luck 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 hands 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 truth is for me and for every person, every single thing that’s 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 do not know your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out 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. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It is that it’s that sort 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 pay attention to that. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve 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’t have all this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d 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 constructions.
There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. 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’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group 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 man. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can. You will 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 space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I think every thought 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’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 men and women who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle 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 your connection to source energy. What 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 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’s the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are likely 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 is just like the most beautiful flowering tree, 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 meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
