In this world, there are a lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that we all become exactly 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 think that you walk in the world, knowing that whatever issues 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 perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.
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 understanding that puts you at your 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’re 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 only your parents that 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 options that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So when you understand the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I am here matters that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your best individuals 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 blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for every individual, each and every 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 do not understand your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to be doing. 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 in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort 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 do not pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve 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 group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.
There have been over 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 measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men 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’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can.
What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct 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 to the world is going to come back. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.
It’s true that as you do unto others, they will 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 plenty of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it is 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 ratio 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 center, from the divine ness of yourself, from the 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 this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his book 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’s the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are 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 the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently 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’s the gift you were meant to give?
