In this world, there are a 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 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, understanding 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 world, to be a portion of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most 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 predict that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate 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 cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I’m not big enough to do it. 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 only your parents who desired to have a child. The fact that hag was struck by that particular 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 celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all the circumstances 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 the fact that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks 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 blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of 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 fact is for me and for every person, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not know your goal, your immediate objective 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 that, the world 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 don’t focus on the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t pay attention to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, 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 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’t have all this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, 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 our game up. How you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. So it’s 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’d 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’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible. 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. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know 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 into the world is going to return. It is 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’s an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it is like this all of the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. 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 yourself, from the connection to source energy. That which created you is how 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 publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going 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 many times you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many 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’s time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
