In this world, there are a whole 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 know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you think that you can do all things because 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, understanding that whatever issues you may experience, 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 world, to be a part 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’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 with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large 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 who desired to have a kid. The fact that that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
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 have to know this, the fact that I’m here matters that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your best individuals 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 great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck 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’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 didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every individual, each and every thing that has 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 understand your goal, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re 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 feels like that. It’s 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’s 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 pay attention to that. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for a very long time that I am a lucky 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 would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone 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 started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. How you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation because you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group 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 guy. It is about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as possible. You will need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. 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 think every thought that I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to return. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is 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 that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. 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 middle, from the celestial ness yourself, from your link to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you can align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality 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 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 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’s just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
