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 we all become exactly what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do everything 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, understanding 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 perspective 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.

I predict that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest 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 by yourself, just believing in yourself. You are 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 in the world came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact that that hag was hit by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been 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 of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to understand this, that I’m here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts 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 deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would 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 fact is for me and for every person, each and every thing that’s 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 goal, 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 do. 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. It just really feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you do not focus on 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. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, that 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 anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t 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 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 group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. How you step up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my team all the time. Do not 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 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 that you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that each thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action will make 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 is already done. There’s an energy field. There is 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 outside of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle 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 the link to source energy. That which 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 authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your personality 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. 1 day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you’re 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 the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is just 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 powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
