In this world, there are a whole lot of things which 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 we all become just 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 think 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 part of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all 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, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not just your parents who desired to have a child. The fact that 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 choices that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances 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 the fact that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine 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 due to 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 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 understand your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It is that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t focus on the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I have 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 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 structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. The way you step up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation as 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 return and see where the other guys are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group 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 man. It’s about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it’s like this all of the time. It is 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 middle, from the divine ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you can align with this, 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 soul, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently 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 is 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 powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
