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 life. What I know is that we all become just what you believe. So if you think that you can do all things because you’re 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 which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I call that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding 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 at 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’re not big enough to do it. 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 in the world came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you are 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 divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared 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 did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every individual, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot 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 are 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 really 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 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 pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot 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 this and not use it for something that 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, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, got to step up our game. The way you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would 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 is not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as possible. You 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 states for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to create 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’ll do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with that, 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 spirit, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you’re not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you end up 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’s time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
