In this world, there are a lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything because you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk in 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 view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a portion of the energy field that 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, knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you in your own 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 have to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not only 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 options that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I’m 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 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 blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to deal with 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 that I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for each individual, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not 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 discover 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 in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. 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 do not listen to that. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very long time I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all this and not use it for something which 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 every season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.
There have been more than a hundred talk show since we began. 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 isn’t to be worried about the other man in any situation because you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other man. So it is like running a race, the energy that 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 man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can.
What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. 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 to the world is going to come back. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.
It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness yourself, from the link 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 this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your personality 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. One day your breasts are likely 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 frequently you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
