In this world, there are a 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 know is that we all become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do all things because 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, knowing that whatever issues you may experience, 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 universe, to be a portion 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 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 believe 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’t do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. 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 in the world came from something greater than you. And not just your parents who wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to know this, the fact that I’m here matters that you’re 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’re 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, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There is no luck without you being ready to handle 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 truth is for me and for each person, 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 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 have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just 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. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is your whisper. 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 will never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for quite a 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 intention, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, got to step up our game. How you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is 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 basic, uh, assemble 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 make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to come back. 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 that 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’re in flow, it is like this it is 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 middle 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 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 that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when 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 amazing you are. One day your breasts are likely 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 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 shrub, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
