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 if you think that you can do all things as 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, understanding that whatever issues you may encounter, 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 world, to be a part of the energy field which 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 predict that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re 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 on your own, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of the 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 that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very 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 lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. 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 hand 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 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 don’t understand your goal, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to be doing. 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 on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t 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. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You’ll never ever reach your 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 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 would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step up our game. The way you step up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. 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 guys are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d 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 is not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I feel 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 will return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women 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’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 within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness of yourself, from the connection 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’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, when your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is 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 of that changes, all that changes. However, 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?
