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 react to whatever happens in your life. What I know is that all of us become just 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 into the world, understanding that whatever problems 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 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 believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding 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 am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to comprehend 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 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 choices that had to happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to know this, that I am here matters that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared 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 ready in ways that I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every person, 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 don’t 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 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 is 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 is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t listen to that. You don’t listen to that. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for a very long time I am a blessed 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 goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody 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. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to look back 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’d say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will come back. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you are 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 proportion to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness yourself, from the connection to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you’re able to align with this, 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 soul, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going 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 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 is just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most influential 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 meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
