In this world, there are a whole lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything 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, knowing that whatever problems 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 part of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there is 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 recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. I’m not big enough to do it. 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 only your parents that wanted to have a child. 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 happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So when you understand the mystery of the creation, all the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to know this, the fact that I’m here matters that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. 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 due to 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 truth 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 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 be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not pay attention to that. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a 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 which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. How you step up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation because you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy 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 group 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 simply have to run that race as hard as you can. You 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’s an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to come back. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

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 that I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness 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 can align with that, 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 true power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful 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 many times 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 tree, 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 of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who 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.
