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 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 in the world, knowing that whatever problems 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 perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most 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 understanding that puts you in your own 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 big enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was hit by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So when you understand the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, the fact that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very 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 blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d 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 I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every individual, every single 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 don’t know your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are 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’s odd. It just really 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 listen to that. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have 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 that is for the greater good, your intention, 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 someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, got to step our game up. How you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other men are. It takes energy away from you. 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 in the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as you can. You will 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 space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand 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 to the world will return. It is 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 in my own life. And I know plenty of other people who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of yourself 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. That which created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you’re able to 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 true power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you’re not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times 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’s like the most beautiful flowering tree, 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 is lasting is who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
