oprah winfrey speech for stacey abrams

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 life. What I now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you believe 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 believe that you walk in the world, understanding that whatever problems you may experience, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and comprehension of what God means grew with me, I expanded my perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a part of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in 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 on your own, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have 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 who desired to have a kid. The fact that that hag was hit 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 happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of the 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’m 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 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 blessed. Nothing. A 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. There is no luck without you being prepared to deal with 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 that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every individual, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t focus on the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is the whisper. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for a very long time that I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

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, must 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’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men are. And if they are 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 guy. It is about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that every 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 to the world will come back. It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is 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 outside of it. And if you’re 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 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 middle, 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, regardless of what 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, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that is 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 going 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 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. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
