In this world, there are a lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So if you believe 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 into the world, knowing that whatever problems you may encounter, 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 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 with no knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to know this, that I’m here matters that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways that I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for every 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 do not know their purpose. And if you do not know your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the world 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 kind 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 listen to that. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for quite a long time 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 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 each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.
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, must step up our game. How you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation because you can’t 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 guys are. And if they’re 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’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible. You 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 distance. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to come back. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center 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. That which 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 character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be as 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’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How frequently you make the most influential 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?
