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 all of us become exactly what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything because you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk into the world, knowing that whatever problems you may experience, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding of what God means grew with me, I expanded my view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, 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 without that, knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you at 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. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a child. The fact that 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 options that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, that I’m 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’re always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There is no luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every individual, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not know your goal, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the world 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 sort of subtle. And if you do not pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not listen to that. You don’t listen to that. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have 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’t 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 would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, got to step up our game. The way 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 man. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men are. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team 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 simply have to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI understand that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to come back. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty 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 the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio 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 center, from the celestial ness yourself, from the link to source energy. What 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 true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true 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 are not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of 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. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
