In this world, there are a lot of things that 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 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 in the world, understanding that whatever issues 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 part of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents who wanted to have a kid. The fact 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 celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I’m here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no crash. 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 at 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 luck 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 I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for each individual, each and every 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 goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to do. 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 in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind 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 listen to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. I am interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for a very long time that I am a blessed 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 decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step our game up. How you step up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation as you can’t 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 it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would 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 is not about the other guy. It’s 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 you have to take responsibility for the space. 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, construct of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that every 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 the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is 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 in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is 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 center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. That which created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is authentic 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 frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s 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 many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
