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 life. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do all things as you have been 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 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 all things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there is something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you in 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. 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 larger than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a child. The fact that 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
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I am here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your very 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 lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. There isn’t any 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 fact 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 lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t know your goal, 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’re supposed to do. 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 on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. 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 is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t pay attention to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have 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 not 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 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’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. The way you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other guys are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Don’t 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 guy. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI 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 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 within my life. And I know plenty of other men and women 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 of the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion 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 middle, from the celestial ness of yourself, from the link 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 true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, 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. 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 many times you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and how many 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, 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. However, what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
