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 all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you think that you can do everything because you have been 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 issues 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 view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, 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 is 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 think one masters one’s life is to understand that you are 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’t do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a child. The fact 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
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, the fact that I am here matters that you’re 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 blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck 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 would say for myself is, is that because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every individual, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t know your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover 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 in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? 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 do not pay attention to that. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is the whisper. 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 own personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very long time that I am a blessed 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 would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, got to step up our game. The way you step up your game is not to be worried 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’s like running a race, the energy 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. 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 just need 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 have to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all of the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness yourself, from your link to source energy. What created you is the way 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 character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose 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 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 does not last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is 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 of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
