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 as 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 issues 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 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 without that, knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best people 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 blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t 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 that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every person, 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 purpose, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out 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 is odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It is 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. It’s 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, that is your whisper at is the whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for quite a 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 this and not use it for something which 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 every season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. How you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation because you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other man. 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’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’s about what can you do? You simply have 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 that you have 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 basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know 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 is going to return. 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 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 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 flow. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle 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 connection 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 this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, 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 going to sag and your eyes are likely 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’s 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 powerful lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
