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 respond to whatever happens in your life. What I know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you think that you can do all things as you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk in 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. 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 think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not 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 big enough to do it. You need 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 who desired to have a kid. The fact that that hag was hit 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 happen in order for you
To be here?
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People 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 whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There is no luck without you being prepared to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for each individual, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your goal, your immediate goal 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 do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that does not 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 don’t pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for quite a 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 that is for the greater good, your goal, 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, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.
There have been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. How you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation because 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 are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group 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 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. That is 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 that 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 return. It is 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 is an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own 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 of the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness yourself, from your connection to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.
When you can align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic 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 likely to sag and your eyes are likely 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 the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It’s 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 that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who 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.
