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 now know is that we all become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything because you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk into the world, knowing 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 perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, 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 in the world came from something greater than you. And not only your parents who wanted 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
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand this, the fact that I am here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no accident. 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 puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. There isn’t any 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 prepared in ways that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact 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 don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, your immediate objective 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 be doing. 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. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It’s 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 is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t listen to that. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is your whisper. I am 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 personal potential. You can’t 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’t have all of this and not use it for something that 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 reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over 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 step up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group all the time. Don’t 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 is about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that every thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will return. It’s 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 is already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel within my 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 is like this it’s like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion 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 divine 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 authentic power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely 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 doesn’t last. It is 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 frequently you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
